Abstract

One of the functions of reproduction centers is to be able to produce 35mm color slides from computer generated images. Current hardware involves a precision cathode ray tube (CRT) exposure station where three computer generated color separations are exposed in sequence to produce the image. In addition to the technical difficulties of registration, distortion and image stability (exposure takes a finite time), the equipment being used is relatively expensive as well as bulky.
