When Genic grinded to a halt, a new organisation was formed: Sunrise. Sunrise continued the popular Picturedisks and Magazines once initiated by Genic. Sunrise Picturedisk was a bi-monthly disk magazine filled with demos, promos and news from the MSX demo scene. Its audience was international though most of its contents was made by Dutch groups and individuals. Sunrise Picturedisk 1 was published released in 1992.
