BMC Systems Inc. (Century City, Calif.)

There’s no mistaking the if800 for anything else. Its unique all-in-one design places the CRT and drives above the main unit on two columns, with a built-in printer in the middle. Oki Electric built the if800 and sold it in Japan, although with a different configuration. The Sumicom 830 appears to be the same system as well.
