Not the turtle, but maybe a relation? A company called Terapin is selling a recorder that can create CD-audio and CD-V (MPEG 1 video) disc recordings (CD-R and CD-RW), from real time sources. Now, this may seem like a day late and a dollar short, but DVD-R's are still 5 grand, and real-time MPEG video encoders ain't that cheap either. For 6 bills, who knows? Anyone got/seen/played with one of these, or knows who's selling them? I've got a few blank CD-R's I'm not using...

Looks cool. 74mins max though so 2 CDs per movie, still cheaper then DVD media. Would like to see the quality to see if this is the answer to offloading my VHS collection onto somthing digital.

wow. recording from a live feed directly to CD. the possibility of buying a bootleg video or CD immediatly after a concert is now more real than ever. in the parking lot. ten minutes after john tesh's last encore...

A terrapin is a turtle. A company called Terrapin Systems makes a version of LOGO (you know, the language with turtle graphics). They've been around since I was in school.

Ah, the light bulb is on, thank you.

Was Terrapin Systems discussed in the LOGO thread from not so long ago? If so, I really need to start paying more attention.

Whenever LOGO comes up, Terrapin LOGO is frequently mentioned, so I wouldn't be too surprised.
