Pre 1995 screens from UK television broadcasts - news bulletins, music videos, films, cartoons, dramas and documentaries.
At the moment I don't have a program to automatically display these files so until I find something I'm limited to using
MicroDesign Plus. :( 

The 17K screen files are stored on Romdos D20 format (792K) 3.5" disks which can hold up to 44 of these files on each disk.

Some of these grabs are the work of the political cartoonist Les Gibbard:

One file, "Osprey.scr" is not a Vidi capture but is actually from a commercial CPC program.

Video 3.

Most of the screens shown in this thread became part of the WACCI PD library so that users of the Advanced Art Studio, Cherry Paint, Stop Press etc could have access to images to work on. In fact one or two of the screens shown in the videos are definitely not mine so must have came from other users of the Vidi hardware who had contributed their own screens to the library.

Now using the ROMBO Vidi ROM to display the files:
Arab 1 - 4 are from a documentary which included an early illustrated version of the Arabian Nights.

Nice!
Do we have a modern substitute for the digitizer?
In hardware I mean... Not that it would be terribly practicable but fun!

Unfortunately not - I'd love (and would buy) a modern Vidi device. First to be captured would be: Trump, Putin and Johnson.
Then the fun would begin with the Advanced Art Studio and MicroDesign Plus - all the speech bubbles I could fill :o

Video 7.

Eighteen grabs from analogue(!) TV broadcasts in the late eighties or early nineties. Mostly Mode 1 this time with a few Mode 2 screens and two loading screens from games which were stored on the same disk.
The Mode 1 loading screen for Dragon Ninja is so detailed I thought I was looking at a Mode 2 screen - does anyone have any info on who created it?

The loading screen for Dragon Ninja, with the correct palette, can be seen here:

Vidi 10

Five Mode 2 screen grabs.
Unusually I can identify the source and year of the image displayed from 2:00 - it is from the Nine Inch Nail "Head Like a Hole" video released in 1990. This particular image is shown in the NIN video at 0:45 and 1:49 and for a comparison of a Mode 2 grab and the original source I have included a link to this video on YouTube.
