<p>The union of digital computing and video was made possible by high-density integrated memories in the early 1970s. This new technology led Xerox PARC researchers to develop SuperPaint, the most famous of the early pixel-based frame buffer systems and one that portended a significant part of the future of computer graphics in television by illustrating the Pioneer spacecraft missions to Venus and Saturn.</p>
