Pixelvision was the common term, but I recall it said PXL-2000 on the side. Any product with 2000 in the name is aces in my book. Just shot a comedy video where we retitled a mattress store as "Mattress 2000" with the slogan "Since 2003"

Thanks Charles! D and I were reminiscing yesterday afternoon... Wanted to shoot video since I first saw that thing... back when I was 8 or something!

Wonder if you can get an anamorphic lens for it... <sly wink>
