The Argus/H system has been redesigned to expedite the processing of a full 24 hours of dual-channel EGG's. The new Argus/2H system features dual processors, a greatly expanded disk mass-storage capability, and yet a lower total system cost. The motivations for the redesign stem from a desire to capitalize on the additional information available in the second ECG channel, the improvement in analysis accuracy resulting from new processing strategies benefiting from virtually random access to the full 24 hours of data, the enhancement of processing and editing speed performance due to fast data access, the ability to more gracefully export the system to others because of less dependence on specialized custom-built hardware, and finally the resultiang cost reduction achieved by employing less expensive processors, but in a distributed configuration to avoid a performance penalty.
