Lockheed has designed and implemented a prototype real-time Video Enhancement Workbench (VEW) using commercial, off-the-shelf hardware and custom software. The hardware components include a Sun workstation, Aspex PIPE image processor, time base corrector, VCR, video camera, and real-time disk subsystem. A comprehensive set of image processing functions can be invoked by the analyst at any time during processing, enabling interactive enhancement and exploitation of video sequences. Processed images can be transmitted and stored within the system in digital or video form. VEW also provides image output to a laser printer and to Interleaf technical publishing software.
