A distortion-free digital image is transmitted through parallel propagation of white-light photovoltaic dark solitons. The waveguide channels induced by white-light dark solitons can guide both the laser beam and the white-light beam well. We determine experimentally the critical separations of the dark solitons in the directions parallel and perpendicular to the crystalline c axis for the given crystal thickness.
