Abstract

Cyan, magenta and yellow may be mixed in varying proportions to produce almost all colors, It is also possible to pro- duce almost all colors by forming patterns containing an appropriate distribution of cyan, magenta and yellow dots. Such a dot pattern may be prepared on either an opaque or transparency material and while actually comprising dots of cyan, magenta and yellow would when viewed at normal dis~- tance give the desired overall color, A dot pattern of cyan, magenta and yellow is reproducible on the Xerox 6500, This allows the improved and faIthful reproduction of such colors as pink, brown and orange in a manner that is better than when a solid area of these colors is copied. Sheets having the dot pattern in various colors may be used to construct reproducible graphic materials such as charts and graphs in a wide variety of colors,
