Electronic color scanners have found wide acceptance in graphic arts and related fields for recording of color separations. The accuracy and flexibility of electronic image processing exceeds photo optical methods. Size changes, color correction and masking functions are accomplished electronically. A recent addition (1974) to these functions is electronic dot generation by means of modulated laser beams. This provides the user with additional features, increased processing speed and hard dot generation independent of external parameters or material. This paper describes the basic configuration of the Chromagraph DC 300 and its electronic dot generation.
