----
Mini Computer Interface for Automatic Sound and Vision Mixer
This project consists of providing an information link between the
Television Management Information System (TMIS) ICL computer and the
proposed experimental automatic mixer to be fitted in the Television
Centre. The equipment will include an industry standard mini-computer
fitted with some 32K words of memory and twin floppy disc drive.
Operational control will take place via a Visual Display Unit.
In 1977 Television Presentation staff and design engineers have
concentrated on the clarification of the operational requirements
involved. The commercial equipment required should be available in
February of 1978, and software preparation will continue throughout that
year.
