"Processing some historical Sandin Image Processor modules recently donated to SAIC’s FVNMA department to extend and preserve our system."


"For newer people who don't know the Sandin IP was one of the first video syntheziers available for people to build around 1973 It was made available via the "Distribution Religion" a build manual created by Phil Morton and Daniel Sandin that was essentially free for people to use for the cost of photocopies. It essentially open sourced the design allowing people the chance to build an modify their own units." -Chris King

"What a great approach, never knew that this processor was basically free and that they had fixit parties. I've always thought that it was developed in a rather closed circle at MIT or so. I've found a copy on the web. Any chance to build it or do you think the parts are too old?" -Yo Yochi
