A video processor is described which performs a wide range of algorithms on two channels of video. The video is normally generated by two vidicon cameras whose formats are in registration. The spectral response of the two cameras can be chosen to achieve the maximum definition of the subjects of interest. The processor can difference the two channels of information, normalize the difference to either channel, i.e., divide by, and false-color the processed signal by assigning colors to the difference values. The processor thus provides a real-time, highly en-hanced multispectral display for interpretation, and no film handling or developing is required. An added feature is the ability to correct the video for lens fall-off and camera non-uniformities on a 16 X 16 array basis in the format.
