If new applications of computer graphics are to be developed and used, the graphics terminal must meet the requirements of users and applications. Studies conducted at the IBM Research Laboratory in San Jose have resulted in the identification of 30 specific requirements for the display screen, the associated hardware for input, output, processing and storage, the interaction rates, the terminal packaging, and the support of the applications programmer. Comparison of existing graphics terminal alternatives in terms of the requirements indicates that 18 of these 30 requirements are not being adequately met today.
