The advent of high speed and density of the mass storage medium has opened new possibilities and flexibility to digital signal processing. Although it is practical to store a complete frame of video, a designer is now faced with the problem of controlling its access to fully realize its potential. With the use of ROM Sequence Generators, Microcontrollers and Microprocessors in both the data stream and control path, it is possible to implement a system where increase in sophistication does not automatically mean lack of flexibility, or increase in cost.
