We have been using the Polaroid CI-5000 for over a year now and have
been very happy with it. If all you are doing is capturing the screen
in raster files and then wanting to make a slide this will work
great as raster files print very quickly. The cost was about $5,000
from apunix (800) 827-8649 x103 and included their drivers to allow
the slide maker to appear as a postscript printer. They shoud have
a solarix 2.x driver this fall (or so I have been told).
The slide maker connects through the scsi port.

Or get a SCSI film recorder - LaserGraphics, Agfa Matrix, and Canon all make varying resolution/price film output devices. I happened to have written drivers for them, and they are the way to go for film...

Well, thats all the responses I got. I was contacted by APUNIX who apprarently reads this list, and recieved some of helpful information from them. If anyone is interested to find out what our final decision is, let me know.
