The Cortex-1 is the first frame grabber ever produced by Imagenation. It was discontinued in 1995 and replaced by the CX family of products. The CX will operate in either CX-mode or Cortex-mode. If you need to replace a Cortex-1 you should buy a CX100 and use the libraries for the Cortex-1.
The Cortex-1 has support only for DOS and Windows 3.1.
The Cortex-1 has no way of switching between NTSC and CCIR cameras. If you wish to run the Cortex with a NTSC camera, you need the m_diskn. If you wish to run with a CCIR / PAL camera, you need the k_diskc.
