Abstract

As shown in Figure 1, copying of a full TV frame may be accomplished by placing a black and white television receiver (CRT display) 11 having TV tube or CRT 12 face down on the platen 34 of a color copier 10 and turning off the scan lamps 33 (Figure 2). The color filter pack (not shown) of the copier 10 are removed and the filters are appropriately cycled in front of a TV camera lens (not shown). The only panchromatic response required is from the TV camera itself. In the case of computer generated color or electronic signals, the display should be successively driven by the green, blue and red signals in synchronism with the color copier magneta, yellow and cyan print cycles.
