Opis filmu

This is my demo for Fujitsu 8-bit computer from 1985 called FM77AV. Developed entirely in 6809 assembly and submitted to Demosplash 2019 ( The demo has won the first place in the Retro Demo category competition!

The video was recorded from actual FM77AV40 unit. Not a capture from an emulator. FM77AV40 → JP RGB 21 to HDMI → HDMI to VGA → VGA to RCA video converter → USB Video capture adapter.

Fujitsu FM77AV was famous for its simultaneous 4096 colors. But, the computer also came with a line-drawing hardware, which was not very common in 1985. It made FM77AV the best 8-bit platform for wireframe 3D graphics, but 3D graphics was not very common then. Only handful of 3D-graphics applications were released for FM77AV.

Fujitsu has been a company that was too far ahead of other competitors to be the most popular. Fujitsu FM series computers were always second most popular following NEC PC series computers.
