Paper Abstract

The transition from feasibility demonstration to a practical working system is never an easy step. This paper discusses some of the problems that will be encountered during the development of a practical interactive hybrid optical/digital image processing system. It focuses on the optical processor of a hypothetical application (IMADITOP) to illustrate a few of the important questions which will arise: What processing approach should be used? How fast will the processor really run? What will be the quality of the processed output? How complex must the system be? How much will it cost? How reliable will the system be? What risks are involved? What improvements in technology would help?
