New fast VESA video driver for eComStation

April 20, 2007 by Eugene Gorbunoff

eCo Software and Mensys BV have reached an agreement to create a generic VESA driver for eComStation.

This driver is called "Panorama VESA", and supports all VESA 2.0 compatible video adapters, which then can be used with the eComStation operating system. Until now some modern chipsetswere not properly supported by the Scitech SNAP driver that is included with eComStation.

The driver is currently under active development. The goal is to achieve maximum performance, support multi-core computers, allow users to work normally with their web-browser, watch DVD and to generally use their PC for everyday work.

How to obtain this driver

An early preview of this driver is available via the eComStation BetaZone to customers who have an active Software Subscription Services.


Panorama VESA may be installed over GENGRAD, SDDGRAD or SNAP. To get maximum performance on a Core 2 Duo or AMD X2 based computer, the ACPI subsystem should be installed. ACPI can be obtained seperately from the eComStation BetaZone but is also an install option with eComStation 2.0 (beta 2 and higher).
