Seriously, though, I believe it is for "film printers." Basically, a digital process to convert an electronically stored image to film (like from a computer; digital image, powerpoint slide, a scan, video frame, etc.). Basically, I think it's for an electronic form of film copying... though this does not rule out my third joke.
