Space Spurred Computer Graphics

Dicomed Corporation was asked by NASA in the early 1970's to develop processing capabilities for recording images sent from Mars by Viking spacecraft. The company produced a film recorder which increased the intensity levels and the capability for color recording. This development led to a strong technology base resulting in sophisticated computer graphics equipment. Dicomed systems are used to record CAD & CAM equipment, to update maps and produce computer generated animation.
