Paper Abstract

In the struggle to cope simultaneously with the volume of data in an image and the display of it at real-time rates, image displays over the past fifteen years have been designed with fixed 'channels' of refresh memory, that are accessed in a raster address sequence, pixel synchronous with refresh of the CRT screen. There are significant advantages to this approach: the memory can be constructed from inexpensive mainframe computer DRAM, suitably multiplexed to achieve the desired data rate, and the addressing and control sequencing is so regular that it can be implemented with simple counters and comparators.
