Watson Hugh Alexander: Compact flatbed page scanner. Bell Telephone Laboratories Incorporated, Wilde P V D, February 18, 1975: US3867569 (44 worldwide citation)

A compact flatbed page scanner for facsimile transmission is described. The apparatus uses a linear charge coupled imaging device (CCID) for both light detection and electronic scanning across the width of the page. Compactness is achieved by folding the optical path from the scanned line to the CCI ...

Lloyd Lester John: Document scanner. Decision Consultants, August 14, 1973: US3752558 (31 worldwide citation)

A 90.degree. reflector scans a flat document to reflect an image of part of the document into a plane parallel to the document. Then a 180.degree. reflector reflects the image back toward a detection station. A transport made of a cable and pulleys moves the 180.degree. reflector at one-half the spe ...
