Abstract

Disclosed is a high volume color loop sub system for integration with a black only marking engine. The subsystem provides an add on color loop thereby enabling, for example, a mid volume black only machine to provide full color image output at the same print rate. The color loop subsystem can use a lower resolution exposure system capability while reserving high resolution for black development. The color loop is only used when color is desired preserving reliability, cost and maintainability.
