IBM PS/V Vision Model 2408 (1992)

2408-WMC
The IBM PS/V series took its name from DOS/V (V for VGA), which was an
industry standard that allowed computers to display Japanese script in
higher resolution VGA graphics using software-defined character sets (as
opposed to specialized hardware chips that preceded DOS/V). As a side
effect of supporting higher-resolution graphics by default, the machines
were generally well equipped for multimedia, often supporting CD-ROM
drives, integrated sound hardware, and higher resolution graphics than
most PC compatibles at the time. The Vision model seen here is an
example of that multimedia emphasis.
