Lawrence D Ryan, James V Sherrill, Robert D Shedd, Gerald T Caracciolo: Display processors accommodating the description of color pixels in variable-length codes. Technology, Joseph S Tripoli, April 11, 1989: US04821208 (113 worldwide citation)

A display processor, as for a small computer, processes pixel codes of various lengths. Three addressable color maps have their read addresses generated independently from portions of each pixel code. The portions of each pixel code used in generating each read address can be selected by programming ...
