Image capturing systems generally fall into two broad categories: silver halide photography and digital imaging equipment. Each has advantages and disadvantages; a user must select the method that best suits his needs. The authors of this article are conducting research and development into a new image capturing method called Elgraphy that combines electrophotography and liquid crystal technology. It has the advantages of being a dry system, and having a high resolution and high sensitivity. Efforts are being made to establish a new imaging technology that exploits the characteristics of Elgraphy.1–4 This article provides an overview of the new image capturing technology; details will appear in subsequent articles.
