Paper Abstract

The display and processing of large images (on the order of thousands of pixels per side) is one of the most difficult problems faced by digital softcopy display systems. Even simple operations on these large images, such as scrolling and magnification, are performed slowly and with great difficulty on currently available systems. In this paper, a new architecture is proposed based on high-rate video channels, parallel transfer disks, asynchronous interleaved memories, and special-purpose processing elements. This design offers orders of magnitude increased performance in the display and processing of large images at relatively low cost, and makes use almost exclusively of commonly available hardware.
