Proposed is a system that can be used to convert flash based copiers into Electronic Reproduction (ER) copiers that retain the copy quality and motion quality of flash based copiers but gains the advantage of electronic input and editing. A full frame (full platen) reflective mode (no back light) Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) array is added to the copier in a configuration that allows the LCD to be positioned over the platen. A Raster Input Scanner (RIS) and appropriate Electronic Subsystem (ESS) are also added to the system. In the copy mode, a document is scanned by the RIS and the information is processed by the ESS and loaded into the LCD array a page at a time. Once a LCD pixel is loaded, it remains in that state until reset.
