Xerox Conference Copier
A "unknown" Xerox product has come to my knowledge. It's the Xerox Conference Copier. This product was produced around 1986, and it seems that is was a Fuji Xerox product.
This is a text taken from the copier manual:
"The Xerox Conference Copier is a moveable five-page conference-size screen that has the capability of making letter-size prints of whatever is written on the screen. The conference copier can print one, two, or four pages of the screen onto a single sheet of letter-size paper. The screen can be stopped between pages in order to draw or print continoulsy across pages. The fifth page of the screen provides a security page. Information written on the fifth page cannot be copied."
If anyone has some more information about this Xerox product, your comment bellow is much appreciated.

It basically worked like a fax machine.Write on the screen, then the screen would be pulled past an optical scanner. The printing was done on thermal paper.
We had one of these in every conference room when I was in Webster. Hope they sold some of them outside of Xerox.
So many products, I forgot that I repaired these things. Really very few sold in the Boston District.
I was a CSE on the Webster campus and serviced this product. The print was made by the flexible white board screen driven to the right with the image written on the screen being scanned by a CCD as the screen was gathered on a spool. The image was created on the paper with a thermal print head, paper was same as used in thermal fax machines like the Xerox 295, trained on that also. One of the most common service calls was to replace the screen, people would forget to use white board markers, they would use permanent markers… Read more »
