New Printer Interfaces
Telesys Computer Peripheral Products has announced several new printer interfaces for Apple, Atari, and Commodore computers. For the Atari, Telesys has introduced the TurboPrint/A ($59.95), a graphics and text parallel printer interface which emulates the printer interface portion of the Atari 850 Interface Module. The TurboPrint/A has external DIP switch access and its own power supply. The TurboPrint/GTA ($99.95) is an advanced graphics and text parallel printer interface with optional plug-in 16K or 32K buffer for Atari computers. It is completely software-compatible with the Atari 850, prints Atari graphics characters (including reverse characters), doubles the printing speed of printers without onboard memory, and has external DIP switches. The B16 16K TurboBuffer ($79.95) and the B32 32K TurboBuffer ($109.95) are available for the TurboPrint/GTA. Both TurboPrint interfaces work with Atari 400, 800, 800XL, 65XE, and 130XE computers.
    For the Commodore 64/128 and VIC-20 computers, Telesys has introduced the TurboPrint/C ($49.95), a text-only parallel printer interface; the TurboPrint/GC ($69.95), a parallel interface which prints Commodore graphics including reverse characters, prints four typefaces (normal, expanded, compressed, and expandedcompressed combined), and has external DIP switches; and the TurboPrint/GTC ($89.95), a buffer-expandable parallel interface which prints enhanced Commodore graphics. The TurboBuffers mentioned above are available for the GTC at the same prices.
    For the Apple IIe and II + computers, Telesys has announced the Turbo Print/IIe ($59.95), which prints text with many popular Centronics-type printers and graphics with Epson and Epson-compatible parallel printers. The TurboPrint/IIc ($89.95) performs serial to parallel conversions, has switch-selectable baud rates, and is compatible with most Centronics-type printers. All cables required for installation are included with both interfaces.
