Amiga Technologies Organisation

After the Escom purchase, the newly formed Amiga Technologies released a press statement about the company. This reflects a great deal about the companys philosophy at the time.

Together with Escom in the new Multimedia age.


AMIGA Technologies is a 100% daughter company of ESCOM. We are located in Bensheim, 40 miles southwards of Frankfurt and a few miles away from Heppenheim, where ESCOM has its offices.

Our team

To be good in making, selling and promoting the Amiga, one has to like the Amiga and stand behind it. We at AMIGA Technologies think that our team has to be made of Amiga specialists who believe in what they are doing and that's the way we go. Once completed, our staff will be of about 50 people, working in sales, production, marketing/PR, accounting and finances, human ressources, support and especially development of new hardware and software. We think internationaly because we are an international company. People from all parts of the world are joining our young and dynamic team. In our offices, English is more often spoken than German.


Production and quality control are high priorities to ensure total customer satisfaction; We only work with the best part providers and most reputable assemblers to assure the high degree of reliability we want for our systems.


Distribution and logistics are also important keys to successful operations for us. Our worldwide distribution is centralized in the Netherlands where we have the infrastructure needed to provide Amigas to the world. In each country, we have a distribution unit to assure the relay and proper support needed locally. This can be as a subsidiary or with a distribution and sales partner, depending on the needs.

Our Market

The Amiga market has a high potential and first of all is a worldwide market. The multimedia market is even bigger and it is our market of choice. With the high potential of our technology in this aspect, we know that we have the best chances to become an important player very soon. In the United States, where the number of local Cable Televisions is increasing rapidly, the Amiga is an appreciated system for broadcasting applications. Amigas are used in Hollywood to make films and productions like Babylon V or Seaquest DSV are some examples among others. Companies use our computers with multimedia authoring systems, which quality and power is unmatched on other platforms.

Our partners

Third party support on the Amiga is excellent and numerous. We know that we have creative and productive partners who make the Amiga a better system every day. We want to work together with these people and build up fruitful partnerships with them. We allready have signed agreements with SCALA software to bundle our systems with their outstanding multimedia authoring system. The Amiga can now be used as a powerfull multimedia workstation out of the box.

Our technology, development and what we can make out of it.

Power to the user is our goal at short and long term. Going RISC is a priority for us. Porting our operating system to a new generation hardware technology in a user-friendly manner is the best way to keep our loyal customers and gain new ones. For the short term, implemanting the fast 68060 processor from Motorola is an evident move we will do quickly. Again, here we hire the most excellent technicians and have the best partners to achieve this ambitious endeavour. The future of home computing resides in intelligent and integrated high-technology devices like set-top-boxes which combine user friendliness, powerfull hardware, communication skills and online services. All we need is coming very soon : the communication highways, the online service providers, pay TV and home shopping. All this bundled to our technology will enable us to bring new and exciting products to the customer at extremely attractive prices.


From the entry level AMIGA 1200 to the high-end AMIGA 4000 Tower, our product range is suited for everyone, from the computer freak to the professional user.

The AMIGA 1200, thanks to its low price is a perfect home computer and its expandability will give the user many upgrade possibilities for faster processors, more memory or new storage medias.

The CD 32 console is based on the AMIGA 1200 Technology and comes standard with a CD ROM drive. The storage capacity of this media, combined to the graphics and sound abilities of the Amiga.

The Amiga 4000 Tower is perfectly suited for the professional video and multimedia market and has sufficient connectors and free room to host any kind of internal expansion device. For more computing power, the 68040 processor can be replaced with the new 68060 from Motorola.

An exciting device for multimedia and interactive applications are the new Virtual IO glasses. distributed and promoted in cooperation with Amiga Technologies. With virtual IO, the Amiga user will have a closer relationship to his computer!
