The combination of a high resolution video system working with a spatial light modulator results in a system in which holograms can be produced and converted to electrical signals for the purpose of transmission to remote locations. The hologram is converted to an optical signal where the original image is reconstructed. This paper describes the proposed technique and shows some results from a laboratory experiment. The experimental results were obtained using a "General Electric Coherent. Light Valve" as the input transducer to the optical system.
