Abstract : A digital recording system contained in each video frame in memory at a write rate equal to that of a video imager from which the system receives the information. The system then outputs the information from memory to a recorder at a read rate which can be below the write rate and maximum recorder rate. The system outputs information from memory at the lower read rate by skipping a specific number of entire video frames and outputting the video frames between those skipped. The read rate is selected so that it provides a continuous stream of data to the recorder with only short gaps between video fields. (MM)
