A video processing system includes frame stores 38-47 with common highways 56,57. Input ports 1-6 together with a computer 58 have access to the input highway via buffers 30-37 and the output ports 1-6 together with the computer have access to the output highway via buffers 48-55. Each port together with the computer is allocated sequential time slots of short duration by means of a time slot control 64,68. Thus to an operator it will seem that he has continuous access to the system. Image planes greater than normal frame size can be handled by means of the address control 65. Additional data paths and processing hardware may be provided to enhance the system capabilities. <IMAGE>
