A brief review of the state-of-the-art in digital image processing is given. Wide-spread applications of digital image processing will require maximum computing power at cost less than that of the large-scale computers often used in image processing research. Increased sophistication in processing algorithms will also create a need for even more computing power. The potential for mini-computer and/or special-purpose computers to fill this need is discussed, and features of needed computer architecture are considered.
