AbstractAn apparatus and method is disclosed for utilizing a low power light source in conjunction with a continuously scanned light beam deflector to form unblurred images of a vocabulary of characters at a plurality of discrete positions. The light source illuminates a scanning deflector from which an angularly scanned beam is directed towards a lens, from which it emerges as a linearly scanned beam. This linearly scanned beam illuminates a linear fly's eye lens array from which a plurality of substantially stationary beams are emitted, each of which may provide an unblurred image at a preselected position corresponding thereto.
