Taito's Vewlix was introduced in 2007 as a ground breaking arcade machine to embody the new HD generation of games. Since then the Vewlix grew to be the standard in HD gaming in Japanese arcades.
The Vewlix made the huge leap from CRT to LCD with a 32inch LCD screen. It also introduced widescreen gaming to arcades which until then had to settle with 4:3 ratio CRT's. Its digital connection (DVI) was a revelation and resulted in noiseless signal to the screen, giving a superior picture quality.
Taito introduced 2 models on launch-day. The Vewlix F and L models were the first ones to make their entry into Japanese arcades. They gave arcade operators the option between the high end, low latency F models and the more affordable L model with its sleek black/white finish.
The F model is considered to be the Ferrari of Vewlix line-up. Its superior screen allows lag-free gaming and although it came out in 2007 is still considered to have a high end screen even in recent times. Fightgames, shooters or any game that benefits from high framerates will never be the same.
Vewlix L AMI
Whilst shooters were, and still are, very popular in Japan a huge publisher of shmups AMI commissioned a series of Vewlix cabinets to run their games. The fact that every Vewlix cabinet can rotate its screen 90 degrees means that playing vertical shooters is spectacular to say the least.
The Ami model is known for its blue panels and blue marquee.
With the introduction of Street Fighter 4 in 2009 Capcom commissioned a series of custom Vewlix cabinets to introduce the game to arcades prior to consoles. Capcom based their model on the superior F model to allow maximum framerate for their latest fightgame.
Capcom's "C" model Vewlix features red panels, a lag-free screen, and an artwork/sticker-set based on Street Fighter 4.
The latest model is the "Vewlix Diamond". The Diamond was build to suit the new Nesica-Live network that Taito introduced for arcade operators. The network allows arcade operators to purchase games as digital downloads which allows gamers to pick and choose their game on the arcade machine. It also gives the machine the ability, through it's cardreader, to have players log into the game and play with their own user name and account. That way players can build up their online stats and gather avatars and unlocks with their account.
The Diamond has a clean and fresh look with its white body and sky blue panels and uses a new generation 32 inch IPS panel with unrivalled colors and superior graphics.
Our Vewlix arcades are thouroughly refurbished to bring them close to their original state.
Each machine has been proudly used in Japanese arcade and can therefore have slight user wear.
