A dual-axis joint-Fourier-transform correlator is described with two liquid-crystal television screens as input devices and a bacteriorhodopsin film as the active holographic material in the Fourier plane. The experimental data presented demonstrate that this system is capable of processing two independent video signals in real time with a signal-to-noise ratio of 45 dB.
