The first time I saw this picture I really wondered if it was a hoax that had been photoshopped together, but it seems that it might be real...

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Nice, but the "100 line" picture (as opposed to the 400 line NTSC TV next to the microcomputer(!) for playback) suggests the resolution was rather small... :D

But it's nice to know the history of those tiny little things we have in out mobile phones and webcams and digital cameras, that once looked like, well, I can't describe what it looks like, but it's a really cool looking piece of machinery and electrickery... :D
