Digital Technology Forces Changes

The old analog style of copiers worked great for the purpose for which they were
designed. They were only tasked with making black and white or color copies for a
wide variety of uses. Today, the business world has advanced a great deal where it is
necessary to use new technologies in order to have work down quicker, and more
efficiently. Digital technology has made this possible in new copiers. These new
digital copiers have forced changes within the office, but has also made the work
much better, more flexible, and with greater detail.

How Digital Copiers Work

Ever since the first Xerox began creating copies in the late 1940's, people have been
using the same technology found in cameras in order to take a "picture" of an original
