HT1080Z
This is my EACA VideoGenie/HT1080Z/System-80 emulator.

The VideoGenie (as marketed in Europe) and the System-80 (as marketed in New Zealand and Australia) were slightly modified clones of the popular TRS-80 Model 1 Level II. The HT-1080Z was the second official school computer in Hungary.
Initial versions were unaltered VideoGenie-1 computers relabeled
and mounted with an on-board Yamaha/General Instruments AY-3-8910
sound chip. Later revisions had accented characters and modified
ROM contents. This Yamaha chip is the same one that appeared in
other famous computer models, such as the Amstrad and the Atari ST.

The current version of the emulator supports the unaltered HT1080Z
which is basically a VideoGenie with the Yamaha sound chip, along with
the BASIC ROM extension and the second series of HT1080Z's with some
of the extended characters of the Hungarian alphabet.

The VideoGenie (as marketed in Europe) and the System-80 (as marketed in New Zealand and Australia) were in turn slightly modified clones of the popular TRS-80 Model 1 Level II.
 
Although a very good TRS-80 emulator exists that is in a great deal
capable of emulating a VideoGenie as well, it has no specific support
for this series and is also shareware.

HT1080Z is in turn freeware, and may be distributed freely if unaltered,
and the copyright notice is retained. As a consequence, the author take
no responsibilities whatsoever for any damage caused by this emulator.
In short: use it at your own risk!

HT1080Z also exploits the possibilities of a graphical user interface
with features such as drag'n'drop, intuitive menus etc. Here's a comprehensive list of the features: 
  • full and cycle exact Z80 CPU core
  • support for the VideoGenie-1/System-80, all 3 series of HT1080Z computers and the TRS80 Model I Level 2
  • support for 16 and 64 kb memory setups
  • NMI interrupt (RESET)
  • Video Cut (32 columns mode) and Page buttons
  • 3 channel YM2149 sound chip emulation along with the noise and envelope generators
  • TRS-80 compatible tape sound
  • full keyboard emulation
  • direct loading of the disk based CMD format files
  • read/write support for the CAS tape format
  • WAV format support for tape output
  • simple printer support
  • Lowe LE15 High Resolution Graphic Adapter emulation
You can grab the latest version of the emulator from the Download page.
