Some people are understandably wary of the new digital paradigm. We have found that this is usually resolved by a better understanding of the technology. This understanding will help you make a better choice for your business. The differences between analog copiers and digital copiers are really rather small, and are principally due to how the “input” is provided (how the image gets to the copy). In analog copiers, copies are produced by transferring the image optically from the original to the copy.
With today’s digital copiers the information is scanned optically from a piece of paper. The information is then converted into a digital format, processed, and used to produce the copies.
In a printer, the stream of data (similar to the digital image in a digital copier) is processed in the printer to produce the printed page.
The new digital copier / printers are the successful result of combining two very mature technologies: paper handling and data handling. The benefits to users are (1) the reliability that has evolved during many years of printer development, and (2) the speed due to the digital technology. A stand-alone digital copier is typically priced between 10 and 20 percent more than an analog model with the same copying speed. If connectivity is not an issue for you for the next 3 – 5 years, an analog copier is still a viable option. Also, be aware that refurbished analog copiers may be an economical solution to your “copying only” needs.
