The 1970s were indeed a digital decade. In fact, this is the fourth consecutive Winter TV Conference which has focused on digital developments. The developments in the solid-state industry of high-speed solid-state memories, including RAMS, ROMS, PROMS and EPROMS - plus the evolution of small computer technology which led to the introduction of, first, mini-computers and then microprocessors, micro-computers, and related devices - paved the way for us. These very small and relatively economical devices led to revolutionary developments in the fields of digital video, digital audio, and digital control.
