Paper Abstract

This paper will describe the implementation of a number of different image processing functions in the hardware of the Model 70 Image Display-Computer. Usually performed in host computer software, these algorithms run substantially faster. when converted to the hardware of a display-computer. The Model 70 architecture will be briefly outlined and its ability to perform operations globally will be discussed. Resulting speed improvements range from 3.25 to an estimated 230 times faster than typical software implementations. Use of the Model 70 to perform such intensive image processing operations allows the host computer to be smaller and less sophisticated.
