Scanning arrays, such as linear Charge Coupled Devices (CCD's), which are used to convert an imaged document into a serial stream of video image signals are normally received from the manufacturer with a glass cover in place to protect the array from damage, dirt, etc. However, the glass may introduce additional light loss and optical distortions into the scanning system.
