There is a blurred date stamp on the cover for June, 1968 or 1969. The second page of the brochure has entries for the 9000 series, with a short page obscuring information about the 9400 system. A picture of a woman opening the disc system is on the back of the short page. Page 5 features information about the 9400's "phenomenal power in medium scale." This section lists some of the remote devices that can communicate with the 9400: UNISCOPE 300, DCT-2000, UNIVAC 1004 Card Processor, and the UNIVAC 1005 Data Processing Systems. It's multiprocessing capabilities and expandibility are explained on pages 7 and 8. The center of the brochure folds out to reveal pictures of 9400 processor as a disc/tape system, a disc/tape communications system, a tape system, and a disc system. Suggested uses are given underneath each picture. The subsections "Hardware Facts" and "Software Facts" are included on pages 13 and 14.
