Paper Abstract

This paper will discuss requirements for a protocol for exchanging digital image information between users of possibly dissimilar equipment. The need for simplicity, flexibility and ease of data access will be outlined and several examples will be presented which illustrate how practical issues such as data block sizes and hardware compatibility impact these requirements. An additional requirement for users who must exchange physical media, perhaps on a one time basis through the mail, is that the data format contain sufficient descriptive information so the data may be utilized without reference to a published document. A companion paper describes one implementation of a standard magnetic tape format which meets these requirements.
