A couple of days ago I found a Quantel V-Series unit with Graphics tablet, keyboard, stylus, and rat. I am posting to ask advice on how much we should list this item for sale.
The unit powers up but without a monitor I do not know if it is boots without errors, there is no power to the graphics tablet and so cannot test the keyboard or rat but both look in good condition. The stylus is damage but seems usable. There are also assorted original cables. The address on the packaging shows it originated from BBC Pebble Mill.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
It is difficult to value, it is long since left broadcast service, not being HD, and is only of interest to collectors or perhaps second or third users like a college TV system.
One of the difficulties of using complex equipment of this era is keeping it working?? If you have the maintenance handbooks they would almost be worth more than the equipment.
