Paper Abstract

Both high speed and unmatched resolution are available with an Electron Beam Recorder (EBR). An EBR uses a beam of electrons to expose silver halide film, processless recording media, and other sensitized materials. The EBR can be used to record or plot graphic arts quality text, line art, and graphics products from digital data from raster, vector, halftone, and/or typeset databases. Applications for the EBR in the graphic arts range from a very high speed, high resolution typesetter to an output recorder for page make up systems. With an EBR as an output device page make up is much easier because both vector and raster recording can be utilized on each page as required. This allows the recording of complete reduced size flats ("miniflats") directly from digital data at recording rates in excess of 25 megabits/sec and a resolution of 4 microns.
