The Wang Professional Image Computer (PIC) offers image processing technology at the desktop level. The PIC can capture, create, display, alter, store, retrieve, and transmit images in real time. These images can also be merged with text. With PIC, the ability to process data, words, and images and to communicate that information locally or remotely within Wang's family of compatible office products is now available in a single workstation. In this paper, we present a description of the Wang PIC. The system's technical features, architecture, hardware and software components, functions, and applications are discussed and illustrated.
