Saving Scanned Images in PDF Format
To save scanned images in PDF format, Adobe Acrobat 5.0 or later must be installed on your PC.
Adobe Acrobat 5.0 can be installed from the provided Adobe Acrobat CD-ROM.
There are 2 ways for saving scanned images in PDF format.
1. Using ScandAll 21
2. Using Adobe Acrobat 5.0
This method is recommended for faster creation of PDF files and for black and white scanning.
The benefits are:
• Quick creation of PDF files with the original scan resolution
• Flexibile creation of PDF files by changing the PDF compression rates
Grayscale or color scanning creates larger file sizes than black and white scanning.
If the file size is very large, you can reduce the file size by configuring the properties of
Acrobat Distiller before saving scanned images.
For details, please refer to the hints on page 35.

avoid bleed through.
• To prevent the rollers from becoming dirty, avoid scanning documents containing large areas written or filled in pencil. If scanning of such documents
is unavoidable, clean the rollers frequently.
• Carbonless paper contains chemical substances that may damage the
ATTENTION
HINT
Pad ASSY or rollers (e.g. Pick roller) when documents are fed. Pay attention to the following:
Cleaning:
If pick errors occur frequently, clean the Pad ASSY and
Pick rollers.For details on cleaning the Pad ASSY and
Pick rollers, see "3.2 Cleaning the ADF" (page. 43).
Replacing parts: The service life of the Pad ASSY and Pick rollers is
sometimes shortened when scanning medium-grade
paper documents.
• When the manuscript of Wood containg paper is read, the life of a Pad
ASSY and a Pick roller may become short compared with the case where
the manuscript of Woodfree paper is read.
When using the ADF, the leading edge of all document sheets must be
evenly aligned. Make sure that curling at the leading edge is within the following tolerances:

between a computer and another device such as a scanner.
Backside reading = Back-side scanning
Refers to reading the backside of the document, specifically in Duplex reading mode.
Bit
The smallest unit of information in computer memory. A bit is a single digit, either a 1 or a
0, in the binary numbering system. Eight bits equal one byte.
Density
In this manual, refers to a measurement of the depth of the display.
fi-4120C Image Scanner Operator’s Guide
GL-1
Dither
Technique for producing halftone images by representing the entire grayscale with only
two pixel levels, black and white.
Double feed detection
A scanner function which detects the accidental feeding of multiple sheets by the ADF
unit. Can be turned on or off by the operator.
Double Letter Size
A standard paper size used in the U.S.A. and other countries. Paper size is 11 x 17
inches.
dpi
Dots per inch.
Dropout color
A color which is used in the document but does not appear in the read image.

A reading mode in which both sides of the document are read.
Equipment Error
An error that cannot be corrected by the operator. Call CE.
Error diffusion
High-quality halftone (pseudo-grayscale) image production based on black-and-white
pixel binarization. A pixel’s optical density and that of adjacent pixels are summed, with
black pixels relocated in their order of density as they relate to adjacent pixels.
The purpose of this technique is to minimize the average error between read and printed
densities. Density data for adjacent pixels is modified by diffusing errors on the objective
pixel into several pixels, which are then binarized. This maintains high grayscale levels
and resolution during reading, while suppressing more patterns by dotted halftone
images such as newspaper photographs.
GL-2
Filtering
A correction method that improves the read quality of handwritten documents. The read
quality of images written in pencil or ball-pointed pen depends on the reflective light
characteristics of the specific ink or lead used. Dropped pixels may produce outlines,
gaps, or thin, barely connected lines due to uneven optical density. Filtering detects
areas lighter than their surroundings and increases their density to improve image clarity.
Front-side reading = Front-side scanning
Refers to reading the front side of the document, specifically in Duplex reading mode.
Halftone processing
Any method used to reproduce a photograph which includes a shade as an image composed of dots, namely, a binary image. Dithering and error diffusion processing are
examples of halftone processing.
Hexadecimal
A base-16 numbering system (also commonly referred to as hex numbers). Since a
base-16 system requires 16 digits, numbers 0 through 9 and letters A through F are
used. It is convenient to express binary numbers in hexadecimal because fewer digits
are required.
Image emphasis
Density is decreased for lighter but not completely white areas adjacent to black areas.
Weakening this emphasis eliminates spot noise or produces softened images.
Image processing
An image is read with specified parameters.
Interface
The connection that allows communication from one part of a system to another. For
example, electrical signals are transferred between the computer and scanner over an
interface cable.
Inversion (Reverse-image reading)
In reverse-image reading, data is changed from black to white and vice versa.

GL-3
IRAS
Initialization of the hardware.
Landscape orientation
A document is transported and read with the long side vertical to the moving direction.
Letter size
A standard paper size used in the U.S.A. and other countries. Paper size is 8-1/2 x 11
inches.
Linedrawing mode
Selecting linedrawing mode makes threshold and contrast settings effective but prevents
brightness from being set. The specified threshold value determines whether black or
white pixels are scanned. Line drawing mode is therefore appropriate for scanning text
and line art images.
Manual Feed mode = Manual Mode
Requires the operator to feed each document manually into the ADF paper chute.
Manual start mode (<-> automatic start mode)
The reading operation is activated by pressing the START button in this mode. Available
only when video option board is installed.
Mirror image
The read image is symmetrically flipped to produce a mirror image of the original
detected in the main scanning direction.
Noise removal
Isolated noise from an image appearing as black spots in white areas and voids in black
areas is removed to improve image quality.
Operator panel
A panel containing the scanner indicators and buttons. The operator panel is used to
control scanner operations such as loading document, selecting features, and changing
setup options.
GL-4
Outline extraction
The boundary between black and white areas is traced and the outline extracted for
closed areas.
PAPER JAM
A warning informing the user that document is jammed in the transport unit, or that transportation is disabled because the transport unit is slippery. This warning also appears
when a double feed is detected.
Photograph mode (White level follower OFF)
Selecting photograph mode makes brightness and contrast settings effective but prevents the threshold from being set. With photograph mode, the darkness of image corresponds to the black-pixel density, making it suitable in scanning images such as
photographs having gradations.
Photo mode = photograph mode
A photograph is read properly in this mode.
Portrait orientation
A document is transported and read with the long side parallel to the moving direction.
Read operation
Refers to the reading operation including Simplex reading and Duplex reading.
RS-232C interface
A type of serial interface. See Serial interface.
SCSI ID
Used to specify a particular SCSI device when the initiator selects a target or the target
reconnects to the initiator.
Simplex reading mode
Only the front side of the document is read in this mode. Place the documents face up at
the center of the ADF paper chute.

GL-5
Smoothing
A process that eliminates "jaggies" from slanted lines and curves. Irregular convexities
are deleted and irregular concavities filled in. This is useful in OCR applications, for
example.
Temporary Error
An error correctable by the operator.
Time-out limit
This is the time the scanner waits for next document insertion after the last document
feeding. The scanner returns Paper Empty when no document is set after time-out limit.
