Proposed Classification

Proposed is a new service for products which are able to scan an image and transmit the image from one machine to another in a remote location, or broadcast the image to multiple destinations in a network.

Currently, machines with scanners can pick up images and remote interactive communication is used to collect billing and diagnostic alert information from machines. The capability of remote interactive communication is a networked system connecting the high end machines to a host computer, which can be expanded to help scanning machines to distribute (selectively or non- selectively broadcast) images to other machines, which include copiers, printers, personal computers, work stations or mainframes, etc. without a scanner through an image routing service. The accepting machine can be group preprogrammed, inputted through parameters or set up in a profile. For example, a teleconference might need this kind of service to deliver reading material to remote sites. It will help expand the power of our high end machines and eventually other products.

Instead of sending datdimages to a particular destination, the scanning machine will be able to distribute multiple copies of datdimages to multiple destinations. The routing server should be installed in the remote interactive communication system and can provide software to support this...
