M&R's i-Image ST Computer-to-Screen Imaging System uses specially-formulated i-Pak water-based UV-blocking ink and advanced high-resolution inkjet technology to quickly generate opaque images on emulsion-coated screens. Computer-to-screen images are superior to traditional film positives, delivering greater detail and smoother halftone transitions. And since i-Image ST generates the image directly on the screen, there's no need for vacuum hold-down during the exposure process. This, coupled with the fact that light doesn't have to penetrate layers of film and glass, can reduce exposure time up to half. i-Image ST also eliminates the need for costly film positives, as well as the space and labor required to store and retrieve them. Because the image information is digital, it's easy to store and quick to retrieve. Since i-Image ST is electrically operated, there's no need to locate it near pneumatic lines.
