Abstract

This system utilizes video disc mass storage of digital data in conjunction with intermediate buffer storage to enable fast access of the data by a processor. Video disc technology permits high-density storage of images and sound on a plastic disc. A disc player optically scans the recorded information to play out picture and sound on a television set.
