Abstract:

Application-oriented software was developed for a programmable digital television display system, known as the Anagraph system. The Anagraph system is a standard, off-the-shelf product and includes a multi-terminal digital television display generator, a programmable display controller, and a fixed-head disc for local data base storage. An IBM-compatible magnetic tape drive is also included in the system for which this software was developed. Software developed includes a Text Editor and a Graphic Editor. Both programs operate stand-alone on the programmable display controller. Data is transferred to and from the local data base by means of IBM standard-labelled magnetic tapes. The system, which is currently in operation at RADC, demonstrates the effectiveness of low-cost digital television techniques in support of intelligence data handling applications involving interactive text and graphic editing, local data-base access, and superposition of standard televeision data with computer-generated video.
