The system would contain a mix of high and low performance channels and use an embedded mini computer for data manipulation. Specialized high speed algorithms for functions, such as rotation, translation and scaling would be implemented in hardware. While the orimary objective was to investigate the feasibility of such a design, strong emphasis was also placed on the optimum costperformance ratio wherever possible. Author
