In a xerographic-type copier utilizing a laser output scanner, document creation (such as forms printing) could be greatly enhanced if the form itself could be printed in color with the data or information printed in black or vice versa. However, typical black and white xerographic machines have only one development housing, which limits the possibility of accomplishing this end. One means of adding color to the document would be to add a second development housing. However, such a technique seriously reduces the machine throughput as two passes are required to produce each copy.
