A portable telecopier send and receive unit 1 is shown in the figure. A typical telecopier communication would involve two such units, one operating in a transmit mode and one operating in a receive mode. The unit comprises a television camera 2 to format documents in a transmit mode and a cathode ray tube 3 to image documents onto a conventional xerographic copier (not shown) in a receive mode. Both send and receive modes rely on a digital storage unit for storing digital representations of the documents.
