4.2.2 Other Image Options
Binarization
This is the process of converting a
grayscale or color image to a bi-tonal
image. There are several different
methods of performing this conversion.
Options: Dynamic Threshold, Fixed
Processing, Halftone 1~5, Error
Diffusion.
Dynamic Threshold: Selecting
Dynamic Threshold allows the scanner
to dynamically evaluate each document
to determine the optimal threshold value
to produce the highest quality image.
This is used to scan mixed document
containing faint text, shaded background,
or color background with a single setting.
If Dynamic Threshold is selected,
Threshold, Brightness, and Contrast are
not available.
Sensitivity of Dynamic Threshold
Occasionally your scanned image may
contain small dots or speckles. To remove
these spots, increase the sensitivity value
by moving the bar to the right. The value
ranges from 1 to 30. The default is 20.
4-8
User’s Manual
Fixed Processing: Used for black-andwhite and other high contrast documents. A
single level is set to determine the blackand-white transition. The threshold is
programmable over the entire density
range. Fixed Processing sets Contrast to
0. If Fixed Processing is selected,
Contrast is not available.
Halftone: In addition to the black and
white display, Halftone can present a
somehow gray shade of image by using
different size of dots. Halftone image looks
like the picture we have seen in the
newspaper. Options include Halftone 1,
Halftone 2, Halftone 3, Halftone 4,
Halftone 5.
Error Diffusion: Error Diffusion is a type
of Halftone. Error Diffusion gives good
image texture and makes text in images
more readable than Halftone.

Threshold
Used to convert a grayscale image to a
bi-tonal image. The value ranges from 0 to
255. A low threshold value produces a
lighter image, and can be used to subdue
backgrounds and subtle, unneeded
information. A high threshold value produces
a darker image, and can be used to help pick
up faint images.

Resolution
A good control of the resolution results a
good detail of an image that scans. The
resolution is measured by dots per inch
(dpi). Normally, the greater the dpi number,
the higher the resolution and the image file
size. Be aware that greater resolution takes
more time to scan, and more disk space for
the scanning image. For your information,
an A4 size color image scanned at 300 dpi at
True Color mode consumes approximately 25
MB of disk space. A higher resolution
(usually means over 600 dpi) is only
recommended when you need to scan a
small area at True Color mode.
Choose a resolution value from the drop
down list. The default value is 200 dpi.
Available resolutions are 75, 100, 150,
200,300, 400 and 600. Or you may choose
your desired value by clicking the box in the
right side of the drop down list and press the
arrow key to select your desired value and
then click the Add button to include it in the
drop down list. Note: The resolution is up to
300 dpi if an imprinter or a MICR reader is
installed or connected to the scanner.

4.3 The Compression Tab
The Compression tab allows you to compress your scanned
image and choose the level of compression. Bi-tonal images
are normally compressed using CCITT standard called Group 4
(G4). Color and grayscale images are often compressed using
JPEG technology. Move the JPEG Quality slider to the right
or left to increase or decrease the level of compression. Note
the greater the compression level, the lower image quality.
Default is 50%.
Note that the compression depends on your image editing
application. If your image editing application does not support
the type of compression format, then either a warning
message will appear or the image quality of the compressed
file will not be acceptable.
JPEG (Joint Photographic Editor Group). This group developed
and lent their name to a file compression standard for color
and grayscale images that is widely used by scanners, and
software applications. On Microsoft Windows-based systems,
a file with the extension .jpg has normally been compressed
using this standard.
For scanning color or gray images, the following compressions
are available:


red color watermark or background, choose the R (Red)
channel then any red watermark or background will be

using OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software.
The “Custom” option allows you to specify your desired color
to be removed by entering its RGB (Red, Green, and Blue)
value respectively.
Tolerance: Specify the allowable color range to be removed
for the color you selected. Specified range: 1 ~ 100
The large the numeric value, the wider the color dropout
range is.
Note that this function supports only black & white and gray
images. Therefore, be sure to choose any black & white or
gray image type while applying this function.

please make sure there is at least 12mm
(0.5”) of space between each document.
This option allows you to crop different
areas on your documents and deliver these
images in B&W, Gray, or Color separately.
For example, there are applications which
require you to store the entire document in
B&W and a part of the document in color to
save storage space. This is useful for
documents where a photograph or
signature appears in a consistent area on
the document such as resumes, and so on.
The following options are only available when Fixed to

By Length (Paper/Object): When a multi-feed is detected
for the first time, the scanner memorizes both the length of
the document and the length of the object (photo or label)
attached to the document. When you perform next scanning,
this pattern of multi-feed will be bypassed.
By Position: When a multi-feed is detected for the first time,
the scanner memorizes the position of the photo or label
attached to the document. When you perform next scanning,
this pattern of multi-feed will be bypassed.

Question: Why is it my scanned image always comes out
too dark?
Answer: 1) Please adjust the screen settings to SRGB.
2) Please adjust the brightness settings on the
screen from application software.
Question: Sometimes it seems the scanner does not detect
paper?
Answer: The scanner paper sensor is located at the center
of the paper guide. Please place the document
you need to scan on the paper guide and use the
slide guides to keep the paper path straight.
Question: When I choose optical resolution to be 600 dpi,
the "auto crop" and "deskew" functions will be
disabled.
Answer: Since to perform auto crop and deskew
consumes great deal of system memory, it is
suggested if you wish to perform "auto crop" and
"deskew" functions, please choose your optical
resolution to be smaller than 600 dpi to prevent
a error message.
