The future of laser imaging for the graphic arts industry is inextricably tied to computer-related applications. The early work in the field was logically constrained by limitations in the technology. Lasers, for example, have only recently moved from the laboratory to the commercial and industrial environment. The use of lasers with graphics is a recent phenomenon derived from economic pressures which always, in a capitalistic society, lead to new and better ways of doing old jobs. Current applications of lasers in the graphic arts industry, although exciting, will soon be replaced by the marriage of computers which operate interactively and adaptively with the "laser and user" to result in "INTELLIGENT MAN-MACHINE INFORMATION SYSTEMS."
