LightJet is a brand of hardware used for printing digital images to photographic paper and film. LightJet printers are however remanufactured and resold. LightJet is a trademark of Océ Display Graphics Systems, a division of Océ N. V. In 2010 Océ was acquired by Canon of Japan; the term "LightJet" is used to generically describe a digitally made chromogenic print. Competing manufactures of equipment include Durst Lambda. Unexposed silver-halide photographic paper is temporarily fixed on a stationary internal drum, where three digitally controlled lasers expose the photo-sensitive emulsion on the paper medium with red and blue laser light; the amount of light from each laser varies to provide specific color and density values for each pixel imaged to the print. The light-path includes a spinning surface coated mirror mounted on an air-bearing that travels along the axis of the internal drum, thus reflecting the laser light at 90 degrees allowing for a dimensionally consistent round imaging dot across the entire area of the photographic paper.

The purpose of this round imaging dot is to maintain edge to edge sharpness on the final print. The print is processed using traditional photochemical means. After which the photographic print is handled just as any other photo-print. Whereas xerography and inkjet printing employ a halftone process and ink to reproduce digital images on paper, digital-C is a photographic continuous tone process rather than halftone or error diffusion which are common on offset press or ink-jet; the device natively supports 24-bit RGB raster files, is capable printing vector based files when fronted by a photographic Raster Image Processor. 24 bit color continuous-tone devices use large multitudes of colors, up to 16,777,216, rather than the small number of colors available to 4-color press and 8-color ink-jet type devices. Therefore and banding are unlikely from these types of prints when provided with a file of good integrity. Due to slight halation of the light source, digital C-prints produced on high end equipment have true continuous tones not possible with images created with ink or pigments.

LightJet printers and film recorders are used by a number of professional-level photographic printing firms. Most deliver a final product printed on Fujifilm Crystal Archive or Kodak Endura paper in sizes up to at least 4×10 feet. Other silver-halide based materials can be printed on laser driven devices such as the LightJet; the LightJet printers were manufactured in BC, Canada. Key individuals responsible for the success of LightJet series include Dale Benjamin, Tim Crandall, Rolf Dekleer, Dave Fraser, Robert Heath, Alex Holowko, Larry Kiser, Miranda Clegg, Chris Lynn, Wenny Macura, Derek Montgomery, Dan Murray, Karen Neufeld, Didier Primat, Alastair Reed, Jeff Rittichier, Horst Schaaf, Ken Smith, Dan Whittle; the original LightJet image recorder was introduced at PMA in 1995. The first version of the product was a three-laser continuous-tone film recorder, its maximum image size was 11×14 inches. The LightJet2000 replaced the Fire1000 film recorder; the LightJet5000 large-format printer was introduced at PMA in 1996.

The product Duratrans up to 50 × 50 inches. In 1997 a version capable of printing to a dimensional size limit of 50×100 inches was introduced; the Océ LightJet430 50" x 120" photo laser printer was introduced in 2000. The 76" x 120" Océ LightJet500XL printer was introduced in 2002. Chromogenic Chromogenic print Photograph

Édouard Detaille

Jean-Baptiste Édouard Detaille was a French academic painter and military artist noted for his precision and realistic detail. He was regarded as the "semi-official artist of the French army". Detaille grew up in a prosperous military family in Picardy. An amateur artist, friends with a number of collectors and painters, including Horace Vernet, Detaille's father encouraged his son's artistic endeavors, he began his artistic studies at age seventeen under the famous military painter Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier. Meissonier became a major influence on his style, it was he who inculcated an appreciation for accuracy and precision in Detaille. Detaille made his debut as an artist at the Salon—the official art exhibition of the Académie des Beaux-Arts—of 1867 with a painting of Meissonier's studio. At the Salon of 1868, he exhibited his first military painting, The Drummers Halt, based on his imagination of the French Revolution. With Repose During the Drill, Camp St Maur, which he debuted the following year, Detaille established his reputation as a painter.

In the spring of 1870, he went on a "sketching trip" to Algeria with three other young painters, Étienne-Prosper Berne-Bellecour, Alexander Louis Leloir, Jehan Georges Vibert. Detaille enlisted in the 8th Mobile Bataillon of the French Army when the Franco-Prussian War broke out in 1870; this experience allowed him to produce his famed portraits of soldiers and accurate depictions of military manoeuvres and military life in general. He became the official painter of the battles, he published a book called L'Armée Française in 1885, which contains over 300 line drawings and 20 color reproductions of his works. Detaille was one of the first artists to buy photographs from Eugène Atget. In 1912, Detaille created new uniforms for the French army, they were never adopted by the Minister of War, but the blue-gray greatcoats would influence French World War I uniforms, the Adrian helmet was influenced by his designs. During his life, he had amassed an impressive collection of military uniforms and artifacts and bequeathed to the Musée de l'Armée in Paris following his death.

Detaille appears as a guest at a party at the home of the Princesse de Guermante in Part Two: Chapter One of Marcel Proust's novel, Cities of the Plain, where Detaille is referred to as "the creator of the Dream", his 1888 painting known as Le Rêve which shows soldiers asleep on a battlefield dreaming of military glory. The painting, located at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris appears in Paintings in Proust by Eric Karpeles, published by Thames & Hudson, his niece married Charles Otzenberger.
