IMUM NUMBER OF GRAY LEVELS REQUIRED FOR SUCCESSFUL DIGITIZATION, THE RECOMMENDED MATRIX SIZE NECESSARY FOR COMPARISONRECOGNITION ANALYSIS, AND THE LOGIC REQUIRED IN THE SCANNER TO SUCCESSFULLY DIGITIZE ChineseJapanese ideographs at a reasonable rate. The study also determined that noncharacter recognition should be handled in a mini-computer rather than with built-in scanner logic. The conclusions reached with regard to resolution and gray scale requirements are supported by hard-copy displays of ChineseJapanese ideographs. Scans of ChineseJapanese test ideographs imaged onto film are made at the recommended resolution and displayed using the Mead Digital Graphics Generator. This unique display device made possible an examination of the effects on ChineseJapanese ideographs of scanning with various resolutions and utilizing different gray scales. Author
