The paper reviews the evolving relationship between lasers and imaging materials to be used as the digital output of the electronic publishing systems of the 1980's. There are several real constraints in practical lasers as well as cost effective imaging materials that will lead to the dominance of electrophoto-graphic and thermal imaging systems by 1986. Silver based imaging products (paper, film, and printing plates), due to their increasing costs, will be displaced by these relatively new applications of old techniques.
