A technology which offers a direct method of printing is Direct Electrostatic Printing (DEP) whereby charged toner particles are "gated" through holes in a head in a pixelwise fashion directly to paper or an intermediate. Using DEP, single pass color printing becomes possible. One problem with-the DEP . process is toner bounce which limits the quality of the image. This is especially troublesome for color printing where the bounce and scatter will degrade color as well as resolution.
