ELSA's VIVO Module
As I mentioned earlier, ELSA will be shipping the VIVO add-on for their Gladiac series of cards and the part should retail for about $32. The other interesting thing about this upgrade is that it comes with quite a few items to make sure you're able to make the upgrade. The kit will include the following:
- VIVO Module
- ESD strap
- Video editing software
- Video card bracket
As you can see from the above list, ELSA wants to make sure everyone is able to upgrade by supplying everything you'll possibly need to upgrade your Gladiac GF2/MX. The only other detail I have on this add-on is that the video chip will be based on a Phillips chip.
ELSA had shipped me an early sample of the Gladiac MX and with it was bundled drivers that did not install correctly so reference drivers were used. The interface from ELSA won't change much from the Gladiac so feel free to check it out here . As you can see ELSA covers most of the basics when it comes to options available. I'm pretty happy with what is supplied and if anyone needs more than that, they'll probably end up using a utility called Powerstrip .
