Abstract : The patent describes an apparatus for increasing substantially the amount of information that can be transferred by teletype communication systems in a given amount of time without additional increase in bandwidth, transmission facilities, or teletype system equipment. At a transmitting station, parallel, fixed-place digital-coded message characters are translated to serial, variable-place, digital-coded message characters. After reception at a remote station, the received characters are retranslated into output characters which are equivalent to the parallel, fixed-place characters transmitted. The conversion apparatus essentially comprises a switching network which produces in a novel manner digital representations of characters which are equivalent to the corresponding character to be translated.
