Paper Abstract

The real-time functional features of optically addressed electrooptical spatial modulators such as the Pockels Readout Optical Modulator (PROM) are described and applied to hybrid optical/digital processing of photographic information. The current and predicted performance of developed hardware and R&D devices for optical image sampling, incoherent-to-coherent conversion, stored image manipulation and computer-controlled Fourier plane filtering are presented. The utility in image exploitation of adjusting the dynamic range of a stored image under interactive
