The 1996 Summer Olympic Games provides a unique opportunity for the Amiga to demonstrate its worldwide appeal, especially among news and media professionals from Europe and the Americas.

Several US-based Amiga companies have joined forces to provide computer support to the press agencies attending the Games. A series of high-end Amigas are being placed at the heart of the media editing room for use as an onsite editing tool for video footage taken by various reporters and media producers. The Amiga will be getting some positive media coverage and a chance to demonstrate it's prowess handling complex broadcast and video graphics.

Special thanks are extended to Keith Cagle, of Virtual Reality Productions, who organized the event space.

VIScorp would like to thank the Amiga community for its support in this effort, especially the following companies for their contribution:

Virtual Reality Productions, Keith Cagle
QuickPak, Dave Zembecki
New Tek, Bob Hoffman & Daneta Colbach
Anti-Gravity Products, June Lavenberg
Micropace, Bob Wolter
