Abstract

By providing an automated record and playback capability to users of facsimile transceivers, such transceivers can enable copy production on a single unit coupled to a telephone. In order to presently use a facsimile transceiver (or separate transmitter and receiver units) as a document copier, a first transceiver must communicate via the telephone system with a second transceiver at the same location. By the use of an automated record and playback unit at another or central location, a single facsimile transceiver via the telephone systems can transmit to this unit and record the document. Upon automated playback, the transceiver, now in a receive mode, will reproduce one or more copies of the original document. Additional features such as multiple copy, automatic billing and diagnostic checking can be provided.
