Abstract : The patent describes a system for displaying on a cathode ray tube data contained in modulating signals not compatible with the scan of the cathode ray tube. The modulating signals are first applied to an electro-optic crystal for modulating a laser beam in order to present the information on an electroluminescent storage panel. A vidicon camera having a scan compatible with the CRT senses the information on the electroluminescent panel and provides an electrical signal containing the data and this is displayed on the CRT. A plurality of additional signals are also adapted for display on the same CRT. A manual selector determines which of the plurality of signals is to be displayed.
