Paper Abstract

Color laser printers are beginning to emerge in various configurations from several vendors. Colorocs offer a 300 DPE, PostScript compatible device. It is a dedicated printer based on the same single pass to paper technology used in its full color copier. The double belt system provides color and black and white bilevel printing up to five and forty pages per minute, respectively. Popular applications packages are moving to support color output devices with the speed and flexibility of laser printers. Color laser printers are finding their way into environments not satisfied by the competing technologies of thermal transfer, dye diffusion and ink jet. Proofing, spot color and business presentations are the leading areas requesting the price performance capabilities of color laser printing. Throughout, plain paper, image quality and cost per page are the critical criteria for the growth of color laser printing.
