In typical ATi fashion, the All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro is a
complete multimedia package. The All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro
package contained a comprehensive collection of
documentation and hardware that aims to please with its
straight forward approach to installation and use. A
clear, detailed manual is included for the video/TV-Card,
covering all of the functionality for each component.
Another separate manual is included which covers the proper
set up and usage of the versatile Remote Wonder. To
help the novice get a clear picture on the complete set up
of the package, an excellent quick reference guide is
provided which shows how each component of the All-In-Wonder
is supposed to be connected. To top things off, a copy
of Pinnacle Studio 8 was included for handling some of the
more advanced video editing tasks some users may have in
mind. Pinnacle Studio 8 is an excellent addition to
the All-In-Wonder package, offering powerful video editing
functionality with a simple, clean interface.
All of the
necessary hardware is provided to take full advantage of the
video card's TV input and Output capabilities. While
the card comes equipped to support DVI-I, ATi also provides
a DVI-I to VGA adapter so support users with VGA monitors.
The ATi Input Adapter is included which enables all of the
video cards video and audio input capabilities. The
unit comes with four ports which connect S-Video or
Composite video, as well as separate left and right audio
inputs from an external source. Conversely, a four
head adapter is also provided for TV out capabilities,
sporting connections for S-Video, Composite Video, S/PDIF
and analog audio out. The perfect compliment to all of
this functionality is the extremely versatile Remote Wonder
which we'll cover in the pages ahead.
ATi has put
together what appears to be a package that is loaded with
multimedia features and has the promise of fair gaming
potential as well. Before we put this card to the test
in the gaming arena, let's take a closer look at the
All-In-Wonder Radeon 9000 Pro itself and the Remote Wonder.
