Hi Scott,

I have tested with low end departmental scanners (Fujitu, Canon, and Panasonic) at speeds up to 38 pages per minute. This is with a SCSI interface. SCSI scanners can scan over 200 pages per minute, but I do not know if Envision could handle those kinds of heavy duty production environments.

I'm sure a parallel interface has limitations but I'm not sure what they are. Probably 5-10 pages per minute.

I have not tried a USB multipage scanner, but it is certainly faster than a parallel interface. I'm not sure though, if production scanners are available in USB. I think they tend to be SCSI.

For storing B&W images, you'll get a slightly better compression with TIFF group IV compression.

Best regards,
