Xerox Disclosure Journal
An automated image bar alignment system and method for use in a single-pass color image output terminal (IOT) is disclosed. In single pass xerographic or ionographic color printers, maintaining color registration often requires that stored image bars be appropriately aligned with one another and image data be strobed at proper time intervals. Manual alignment of misaligned image bars can be a slow, error prone and costly proposition.
