Phase II investigates depth of field, resolution, perspective, and shading as related to flying spot scanner FSS and stylized visual image generation. The study extended the definitions of FSS systems to include scanning pickups, with suitable light sources, conventional pictorial transparencies, and the coupling optics subsystem with analysis of problem areas and recommendations for improving the state of the art. An analysis was made of typical stylized image generation requirements from a viewer and equipment standpoint. This analysis leads to recommendations for improved languages and mechanics and for optimization of the system with respect to viewers characteristics. Reviewed in this study are equipment concepts and hardware and especially the need for video-data storage devices capable of operating in real time with ordinary and high-resolution TV equipment.
