This is one of the original VVCR advertisements from 1995.


The VirtualVCR or VVCR was Drastic's first Digital Disk Recorder.  Based on Intel 486 CPUs with a custom built Unix like operating system, the VVCR used Matrox video and compression boards to save high quality SD motion JPEG frames to a standard FAT32 disk or custom, shared disk operating system.
