Communications of the ACM, Vol. 15 No. 4, Pages 231-244

An interactive computer-controlled scanning and display system has been in operation at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center for three years. The system includes two flying-spot scanners and a TV camera specially interfaced to a process control digital computer, dot-mode and vector displays, analog input and output facilities, and a variety of other experimental equipment. The system design and programming support are described and typical applications in scanner control, optical character recognition, and image processing are presented.
