Abstract

Proposed is an architectural concept for a low cost personal desktop image input terminal. Referring to Figure 1, system 10 utilizes a Constant Velocity Transport (CVT) 16 which accepts only unbound material thus, eliminating the need for a fixed platen. As shown, system 10 is a simple and compact device suitable for use as an integral part of a desktop environment.

ARCHITECTURE FOR A FULL FEARTUED PERSONAL IMAGE INPUT TE RMINAL(Cont'd)

Proposed is an architectural concept for a low cost personal desktop image input terminal. Referring to Figure 1, system 10 utilizes a Constant Velocity Transport (CVT) 16 which accepts only unbound material thus, eliminating the need for a fixed platen. As shown, system 10 is a simple and compact device suitable for use as an integral part of a desktop environment.

Functionally, system 10 would handle a single sheet of paper fed through paper input guide 14. Paper handling would be restricted to a simple stalled roll registration with input sensor 12 sensing a paper entering and starting

CVT 16. The paper would be illuminated by neon lamps 18 and the image on the paper would be converted to an electronic signal by image array bars 20. Further interface and signal processing electronics could reside on interface board 24. Once imaged, the paper would come to rest at output paper guide 22. In the duplex image case, image array bars 20 are staggered to eliminate image show-through which would otherwise be enhanced by back lighting. CVT 16 could be driven by a servo-controller although a stepper...
