The SMC 70 was, like its successor, the SMC 70G designed for professional video applications. It was the first computer in the world to use 3.5 floppy disk, created a little earlier by Sony.
The graphic and character display screens are controlled separately, the screen can be changed instantly from character to graphics, and so forth. There are four display surfaces in the 160 x 100 mode.
Fun fact: This computer was briefly seen being used by the alien-human hybrid child Elisabeth in the V:The Final Battle miniseries.
