The ECRM cards you've got are hardware speedups for OCR scanning.
Yes PDP8's were used for OCR !
Some ECRM cards are very usefull, but those aren't.
Nevertheless I have all info on those boards should you want do do
something with them.
ECRM has a two card 24x80 VDU option and a multi-io ( RS232, PPT,
printer) all one one omnibus card.
That are the truly usefull ones.
btw ECRM is still in business...
