Siamese RTG Package on CD-ROM

For Immediate release 24th March 1998

Siamese Systems ltd launch budget Siamese RTG package on CD-ROM from April.

Due to requests from many potential customers who want to see what the Siamese system v2.5 can do before parting with their money, we have decided to launch the new "Siamese Remote Amiga v2.1" package for only ( UK 29.95 pounds, Germany 79.95dm, USA $49.95 ). This can be used as a full Serial based system in its own right, or evaluated and then part exchanged for the full "Siamese V2.5 Pro" package, by paying the diference.

This software is based on the Siamese v2.5 software but without the TCP/IP ( Internet / Ethernet ) capabilities, and uses a normal null modem serial cable (not supplied) for connection. The software supports serial speeds up to 115,200 bps on a standard AGA Amiga serial connection. This version of the Siamese system also supports Cybergraphics screen modes but please remember when using 16bit graphics over a serial line it is not as quick as the Ethernet version which is up to 50 times faster.

Main features of "Siamese Remote Amiga v2.1" CD-ROM.
1. Supports all serial speeds available to both the Amiga and PC, standard maximum is 115200 bps.
2. Supports third party Amiga and PC high speed serial cards.
