The DPS-1 is truly a DIGITAL Processing System designed to perform a wide variety of processing and storage operations on the television signal. These include basic functions such as time base correction, frame synchronization, and effects. Its design is based to a great extent on the use of high speed computer technology rather than on the mixture of analog and digital techniques found in a great many of the digital television systems in use today, which have evolved from an analog television design philosophy.
