The Stromberg Carlson SC4020 Microfilm Recorder served the Atlas Laboratory well for many years but eventually a replacement was needed. After a thorough assessment, it was decided to purchase a new recorder, the FR80, from Information International Incorporated (III). Some new features were:
- Much better resolution (80 line pairs a millimetre could be differentiated)
- Colour Output
- A PDP15 look-alike processor to control it
- A microfiche camera
- Much improved order code
- Greater accuracy
This section contains a description of the software developments and service provided on the FR80.
A fuller description of the activities that took place developing the FR80 service are given in the Quarterly Progress Reports of the Basic Software Group.
A sample of FR80 Reports is available in the Literature Section.
