Abstract

An intermediate electronic image of a document is made by scanning the document line-by-line (raster scanning). A color image can be made in several ways; typically by using a single linear photosensor array and by sequentially scanning the document with red, green and blue filters. After all these separtion scans are made and stored, a color processing maximizes the color copy quality. This technique utilizes large and costly memory storage.
