Abstract

A photographic duplicating device is interfaced with a computer for the purpose of processing large volumes of information in a short period of time. Existing document printer circuitry is connected to the computer to receive the information to be recorded. A CRT (cathode ray tube) displays the buffered information in the printer I/O buffer on its display screen so that a photographic duplicating device mounted adjacent thereto can photograph the displayed information. The photographic film advance is mechanically synchronized with the displayed information. This enables an entire page to be photographed, as compared to printing one line at a time using present line printers. In order to reduce light reflection, translucent plastic is positioned between the CRT and the photographic process.
