I was involved in a project to implement TurbDos on these machines. Yes it did have three blocks of video ram, but it was still one bit per bank, per pixel so you still only have 8 colours. The graphics library supplied supported dithering to create a greater colour palette.

I found a USA advertisement for this BMC computer in a 1981 issue of Byte magazine.

Wow, that is a flashback

I bought 4 of these for the Architecture Faculty of Newcastle University , must be early 1980''s to teach Arch students, Visicalc, Wordperfect $i think$ and basic graphics. I saw them in Japan and when invited to establish a computer studies course asked them to acquire these as they had basic graphics capability and were self contained.

Then told the maths department we no longer needed their IBM360 and punchcards :)

On my first day in my first programming job I was given one of these in its box accompanied by an assembler and two compilers (Pascal $ FORTRAN). My task was to re-write an infra-red imaging and analysis system - and I had a year to do it. For technical documentation I had a blurry printout of the boot ROM.
The system had been bought for its colour graphics capability - and it really had three blocks of RAM for RGB$ from memory I recall it mapped two bits to each pixel - ie 16 colors, or 4 pixels per byte. To get more colors you could simulate 4 bits per pixel to get 128 colours (although many were identical) at half the pixel resolution. Great fun.
Mine also had a row of programmable function keys under the monitor, which I used to control the main menu of my imaging system.
