The problems of using highly interactive graphic consoles with a time-shared processor are discussed in this paper. Some solutions to these problems are given and are illustrated in the graphic tablet display GTD console used with the SDC Time-Sharing System TSS. Also described in this paper are the components of the GTD, its interface with the TSS, and its operation. The GTD console employs a rear-projection display on a RAND Tablet, improving the naturalness of man-machine communication. The GTDTSS interface takes advantage of an existing IO preprocessor to provide the necessary response time for most of the consoles highly interactive functions. Author
