Abstract:

This report investigates currently available devices which digitize data from film to use as input to a digital computer. The report describes the general specifications for a scanningdigitizing system and describes the various available devices which meet the requirements. The report found that vidicon camera systems were the lowest cost scanners and the flying spot scanners were the most expensive. The most precise instrument, and the most expensive, is the flat bed microdensitometer. In conclusion, the application scenario must be known and the requirements carefully evaluated before any of the digitizing systems described in the report are selected. Author
