This card is a puzzle to me. It shows in *podules as Wild Vision 243A prototype (single digital channel) and loads a dummy module. The 242A daughterboard has a Triple 8bit 80MHz VIDEODAC, i.e. converts analogue video to digital. There is provision on the podule board for 3 daughterboards, but I am not sure how they would fit. There are enough engineering fixes (green wires) to suggest it is genuinely a prototype.. But what was the finished product (if it was finished) and what did it do?

If you can supply further information/documentation on this podule, please email me.
