During Marché international des Inforoutes et du Multimédia in May 1997, Arborescence announced a partnership to develop and market the Arborescence Network Centric computer for the Canadian market, based on Katz Media's KMP 2000.
Arborescence also announced what would have been the first "combo" Pippin expansion docks, with a floppy drive and ethernet (or modem) through the PCI bus. Primetech Electronics prototyped the dock for the KMP 2000 as part of the "Arborescence/Katz Media Pippin package", which would have been targeted towards Canadian consumers who did not have internet access. However, it was not publicly released.
