Abstract

This device achieves full color printing at high speed using impact printer technology. Increased interest is developing in using color to convey information produced by printing or display apparatus. Many of the display devices in the marketplace offer seven or eight colors, alphanumeric character generation, and graphics capability using an "all points addressable" mode on the display which may, for example, be a cathode ray tube (CRT). To complement the display device, an associated printer should be capable of printing seven colors for hard copy output. The seven colors are preferably green, yellow, orange, magenta, blue, cyan and red.
