You can tailor an IBM Displaywriter System to meet various office requirements

No two offices are alike. Although they may share similarities, they're all different. Especially yours.

That's why IBM designed the Displaywriter as a flexible, modular, multifunction system. Various capabilities and equipment options are available to meet various needs.

A software-based system for flexibility and growth

A key benefit of the Displaywri ter is that it offers you a range of software packages and memory capacities. This way, you can select the right com- bination of capabilities for your office. No more, no less.

Displaywriter capabilities come to you on ready-to-use IBM licensed program diskettes. Not all licensed programs have all the features

described in this brochure. However, the chart on the last page illustrates which capabilities are available wi th the various licensed programs and Textpacks. You only pay for the package of capa- bilities you select. And you can upgrade or change your software diskettes as your needs change.

That's your assurance of a highly productive, cost- efficient system well into the future.

Selea the capabilities you need

This brochure will introduce you to the many capabilities and benefits that the Displaywriter can bring to your office.

Basic editing and text processing capabilities are available with a ll Textpacks. Also, you can select a full range of capabilities including: a higher level of text ptocessing, spelling, arithme- tic and statistical aids, automated records process- ing, communications and more.

An IBM Marketing Representative will be

happy to give you more informarion about each

of these capabilities and help you select the

licensed programs that are right for you.


Simplified aids designed for fast, easy, text processing

Day-to-day productivity challenges For a typical organizati on, text processing tasks can be as expensive as they are time co nsuming.

Getting informati on to the typist is one thing.

Getting it out on time and at minimum cost is another. We all make mistakes. And frequentl y entire pages are retyped and reproofed for the sake of just a few errors or changes.

The Displaywriter is a fast, efficient alternati ve.

It offers man y text processing capabilities to help speed up and simplif y day-to-da y assignments.

Typing can be made easy with the Displaywriter Typists using Displaywri ters can store standard o r customized formats on diskettes for fast recall and use, eliminating many setup steps. This can help save considerable time and effort.

Throughout the typing process, the Display- writer screen shows menus, messages and prompts to guide typists th rough their tasks. Typists can also bypass menus and quickl y proceed with the work to be done. The screen also displays text as it is being typed. So typists can make revisions, addi- tions or deletions quickly and easil y.

Finished documents at rough-draft speed Many automated capabilities on the Di splaywri ter enable typists to type at rough-draft speed . Auto- matic carrier return lets the typist work without concern for line and page endings. And once typing is completed, the Displaywriter ca n auto- mati cally check spelling, hyphenate and pagina te the typed material. In addition, any Displaywriter printer can play out one page of a document while a typist co ntinues working on another page.

Incidental typing like notes or messages which do not need to be displayed, can be typed using the Displaywriter's key-to-print feature. This feature enables informati on to be typed without storing it on a diskette, or displaying it on the screen.

Substantially reduced revision time When typists revise documents, they can recall stored material and type o nly the changes. N ot entire pages. Or co mplete documents. This can pro duce sub stantial savings in the time it takes to get professional-quality documents back to th eir autho rs.

T he Displaywriter allows the typist to easil y add, de lete or change individual c haracters, line s, paragraphs or complete documents.

It c an automatic ally adjust line and page le ngths, when revisions make te x t longer or shorter.

A typist c an have a variety o f ve rtic al spacing arrangements for all or part of a document. And change type style s quickly and easily.

It can automatically print repeated inf or- mation, like titles and page numbers, at the top or the bottom o f a page . For a f e w pages. O r an entire do cument.

Advanced text processing capabilities simplify many tedious typing assignments

In addition to the standard text processing ca pa- bilities, a number of advanced text processing capabilities may help your typists to produce diffi- cult and tedious assignments faster and easier.

Assignments like long documents, standard let- ters, and various forms.

Time-saving aids for longer typewritten docwnents

Long, multipage documents and manuscripts can be quickly revised with a g lobal capability that can automatically find, delete and replace three phrases of up to 60 characters each at one time, throughout a document.

The Displaywriter can automatically alternate the printing position of headers and footers-such as document names, page numbers, dates and sim- ilar information-on the left or right side of a page.

Docwnent assembly with minimal time and effort

The Displaywriter is designed to minimize the time and effort spent in gathering previously stored information for a new document. With document assembly, you ca n:

• draw text segments from many different sources to make document assembly faster and easier

• change formats from job to job, or within a job for wide flexibility

• reduce the need for proofing and rechecking, since the stored text is likely to have been checked and approved

Spelling verification aids to help increase spelling accuracy and reduce proofreading time

General spelling verification aid

Typists can use the Displaywriter spelling verifica- tion aid to check the spelling accuracy of approxi- mately 50,000 commonly used words.

Customized spelling verification aid You can also arrange for the Displa ywri ter to check the spelling accuracy of up to 500 words unique to your industry or profession. It's a great way to assist typists in avoiding spelling errors in even the most complex and specialized documents .. . before they are committed to paper.

Multilingual spelling checks

Another optional program helps to check the spelling of approx imately 150,000 words in French, Spanish, Italian and several other languages.

Fast, automatic spelling check

After a document is completed, your typists can activate the spelling verfication aid to check one page at a time, or an entire document. It automat- ically checks the words typed against those in the spelling aid at the rate of approximately 1,000 words a minute.

Incorrectly spelled and unmatched words will be highlighted on the Displaywriter screen. These displays will tell the typists which words may have to be checked.

Reduced proofreading time

Because the spelling verification aid helps you find misspelled words quickly, you may reduce proofreading time.

Automatic hyphenation

Automatic hyphenation is still another Display- writer feature that enco urages typing at rough- draft speeds, without slowing down for margins.

After completing a document, the typist can use this function to automaticall y provide the cor- rect hyphenation for words that would otherwise exceed the right margin. This saves the time of looking up proper line breaks throughout a document.

Incorrectly spe l/e d and unmatched words appe ar

In a memo.

The D"isplaywriter's scre en informs the typist of three incorrectly spe l/ed words.

The Displaywriter has highlighte d the words that

may re quire correction.

IBM Displaywriter System Yesterday


an IBM Marketing Representative described the benefits of the Displaywriter.

The Rep said that this system revisions easier and holds repeti ti ve typing to a minimum, checks the spelling accuracy of approximately 50




used words and


transmits information over ordinary


lines. So,


has the potential for


mproving our productivity.

The Displaywri ter seems to be easy to use and economical




as our needs grow, we can upgrade this system


of replacing it.

The finished document indicates that the words displayed on the screen have been corrected.

Electronic Spelling Dictionary

With this o pti on, the spelling capabilities of the Displayw riter have been greatly expanded . Besides identifyi ng a word which may be misspelled , this program ca n display that word spelled correctl y. If more than one word ca n be derived from the mi s- spe lled word, up to seven words ca n be displayed from which yo u can choose the appropriate o ne.

The misspe//ed word is highlighted on the screen and

the typist can select and insert the correct word



Fast, accurate mathematical calculations and widely varied statistical typing aids

Four-function mathematical aids

Your typists can use the Displaywriter to add, sub- tract, multiply and divide and to check the accu- racy of handwritten calculations.

This capability can help to reduce proofreading time and improve mathematical accuracy.

Enhanced mathematical capabilities

The Displaywriter also offers other sophisticated mathematical aids for a wide range of applica- tions. The typist can have columns or rows totalled automatically.

What's more, the typist can compute averages or percentages . .. automatically. And the Display- writer can also automatically recognize and adjust to negative numbers.

Numerical tables with a fixed sequence of cal- culations can be prepared quickly and easily. The typist simply types the first row or column of numbers and the required calculations. On subse- quent columns or rows, the Displaywriter allows the typist to repeat that sequence of calculations automatically.. This way, the Displaywriter can

Convenience and speed for statistical typing The Displaywriter can automatically assign equal space between columns, position them on the screen and set the appropriate tabs.

The flexibility of the Displaywriter for column layout can help save a typist's time and energy.

And enhance statistical typing productivity.

A faster way to update reports

On a conventional keyboard, the task of replacing the 1980 column with 1981 figures requires retyp- ing the entire page. With the Displaywriter, the typist deletes the unwanted column, types only the new figures, verifies the sum of the new fig- ures and has the new page printed out.

And when the numbers are due to be updated, the entire page is recalled from its diskette storage space. This way, the typist has the potential to fin- ish an assignment much faster.

Flexible mathematical checking

As the examples below indicate, typists can use the Displaywriter to total the columns of figures and determine the amounts of variance in the right-hand column .

Typists can check any of the four arithmetic functions either vertically or horizontally with the Displaywriter. This flexibility, along with easy-to- understand prompts , helps typists turn out more accurate statistical documents. And helps turn them out more quickly.

Statistical typing revision enhancement

The Displaywriter provides increased capabilities for statistical typing . Any single column can be temporarily moved closer to its line heading so that revisions can be done quickly and accurately.

Repetitive keystrokes, such as format or math instructions, can be stored and recalled for the next job requiring the same instructions.

When revisions must be mad e in a c o lumn far from its line headings, proper align-

ment can be difficult. UI'OIIT (000',)

The Displaywriter is a records processing system

With the Displaywriter, building and maintain- ing a file can be easy and efficient. Your staff can electronically access any record, in any of your stored files, with a few simple instructions.

Broad applications

Basic file information is only typed once. Once your file information is stored on diskettes, the Displaywriter can be instructed to produce a vari- ety of management reports, lists, forms, and per- sonalized letters, like the ones shown here. There should be much less need for repetiti ve typing, manually searching through files , and manual calculations.

Records processing speed

Typists using the Displaywriter can perform the major records management functions right at the keyboard. As a result, they can use a few, simple keystrokes to retrieve, revise and distribute the kind of critical, timely information that serves as the foundation of important management reports.

Reports that form the basis of informed decision making

Comprehensive customer file With your key Jiles stored on diskette, the Displaywriter can be instructed to search hundreds oj records at electronic speeds.



Generate a variety of management reports and lists from one, comprehensive master file Typists can use the Displaywriter to automatica ll y help assemb le, revise and use the comprehens ive customer file shown below to produce timely, accurate management reports and lists.

The sample customer file below has many fields, represented by its headings-Company Name, Address , City, etc. The Displaywriter can be used to call up and use as many as 100 fields.

Or as few as one.

The Displaywriter allows typists to use famil- iar terms as fie ld headings for fast, easy reference.

There's no need to stop to look up or interpret coded file headings.

With a communications option, typists can also use the Displaywriter to retrieve information from an appropriately programmed IBM com- puter's data base and deliver it in usable form to other compatible IBM work stations. Economic- ally and quickly.

With just a few keystrokes, typists can insert, remove, revise or rearrange file information to keep it up to date. And to produce alphabetized

and / or summarized lists of customers, industry

reports and marketing letters like the sample doc- uments shown here.

Rapid Displaywriter electronic communications to another part of your building or thousands of miles away

The Displaywriter can continue to make produc- tivity contributions, even after your material has been typed. Optional electronic communications features can help move information throughout a building, across rown, or thousands of miles away.

This capability allows you to transmit your information quickly over ordinary telephone lines. It's a good way to reduce your dependence on slow-moving internal or external mails.

Displaywriters can communicate with other Displaywriters and with suitably programmed IBM computers. This eliminates the need for retyping information at the sending, or receiving end of the message.

Binary synchronous communications

This form of communications allows you to trans- mit and receive information at high speeds to and from compatible IBM Office System 6 equipment, compatible IBM mag card typewriters, the IBM 6670, the IBM 5520 , and other compatible IBM equipment.

Asynchronous communications

Displaywri ters can emulate certain types of tele- typewriter devices and codes. They also permit transmission to some teletypewriter equipment, to suitably programmed IBM computers and to the IBM Communicating Mag Card "Selectric"

Typewriter. Retyping of documents received from a teletypewriter network may not be necessary when a high-quality Displaywriter printer is used.

3270 data stream compatiblity

The flexible Displaywriter also offers 3270 data stream compatibility by emulating certai n IBM 3270 display terminals and functions. With this capabilit y, you can communicate with a suitably programmed IBM host computer in an SNA/

SDLC network. This gives you real-time, on- line access to central computer data bases for such host-interactive data processing functions as inquiry, update and data entry. With this option the Displaywriter brings you data processing capabilities as well as word processing.

Typists using Displaywriter Printwheel Print- ers can print 15 charac ters to the inch and can con- dense oversize computer sheets on 8 \-2 x 11"


Positive security

Displaywriter commu ni cations features will work with the optiona l IBM 3845 Data Encryption Device. Messages can be encrypted to help protect the privacy of your com munications .

An additional security option is a key lock,

which helps restrict access to the system to

authorized users only.
