The invention describes a processor system suitable for processing video signal samples on a real-time basis. Signals are derived from the samples for driving an imaging unit. For this purpose, one or more processor modules are provided with processor elements, operating in parallel in time, which are connected to a crossbar switch. A module contains at least one arithmetic/logic processor element and at least one memory processor element. Moreover, there is a clock device, the frequency of which bears a fixed relationship to the frequency with which the video signal samples are obtained.
