Abstract

This apparatus is capable of high-speed, nonimpact printing on ordinary paper. It also has data buffer and display capabilities. Input data, for example, from a computer is displayed on high-resolution cathode ray tube 2. The data thus reproduced is projected upon a single moving, photosensitive receiver belt 4. By interposing reducing lens 6 intermediate to CRT 2 and belt 4, pages of information can be buffered on belt 4. The latter is in moving contact with dielectric-coated belt 8. This causes belt 4 to transfer its latent image information to belt 8, followed by development of the image, for example with toner, at developing station 10. After development of the image, belt 8 serves to buffer the information. The information then can be expanded and directly displayed, for example, by viewer 12.

High Speed Buffer Display and Printer

This apparatus is capable of high-speed, nonimpact printing on ordinary paper. It also has data buffer and display capabilities. Input data, for example, from a computer is displayed on high-resolution cathode ray tube 2. The data thus reproduced is projected upon a single moving, photosensitive receiver belt
4. By interposing reducing lens 6 intermediate to CRT 2 and belt 4, pages of information can be buffered on belt 4. The latter is in moving contact with dielectric-coated belt 8. This causes belt 4 to transfer its latent image information to belt 8, followed by development of the image, for example with toner, at developing station 10. After development of the image, belt 8 serves to buffer the information. The information then can be expanded and directly displayed, for example, by viewer 12. The latter can be a CRT scanner or visual display, or be printed out on ordinary paper by transferring the toner material on belt 8 to paper.
