Subscriber Response System. Progress Report.
Callais, Richard T.
Results of preliminary tests made prior and subsequent to the installation of a two-way interactive communication system which involves a computer complex termed the Local Processing Center and subscriber terminals located in the home or business location are reported. This first phase of the overall test plan includes tests made at Theta-Com Corp. using actual two-way cable cascades, a two-way AML microwave link, and the prototype subscriber response system (SRS) terminals which are now in use in El Segundo, California. Data collected in the tests relating to the performance of the full SRS in operation with a 16-amplifier cascade are presented, and the factors which are important in the design of an interactive system, including the oft-neglected computer and its software component, are discussed. In addition, the El Segundo SRS installation is described and the services made operational are categorized and discussed. (Author/LB)
