Paper Abstract

Over several hundred years of refinement, the graphic arts industry has become skilled in producing images, in the form of printed pages, that maximize both esthetics and information content. Their capabilities have grown out of centuries of trial and error. The electronic-digital automation of these basic arts and crafts is the critical path for the printing industry, and 1982 was a year of intense activity in the electronic prepress area of the graphic arts. Most current developments are directed at integrating pictures and text in final page form. This paper reviews how laser technology is being used in the graphic arts, and how effectively these products are meeting the objective of providing cost/effective solutions to traditional graphic arts production problems.
