A scanner can be described as a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting, or an object, and converts it to a digital image. Modern scanners usually makes use of a charge-coupled device (CCD) or a Contact Image Sensor (CIS) as their image sensor while older scanners utilize a photomultiplier tube as their image sensor. Another type of scanner, called the rotary scanner, is utilized for high-speed document scanning and makes use of a CCD array instead of a photomultiplier. Another type of scanner is the planetary scanner. This scanner type takes photographs of books and documents. There are also 3D scanners that produce three-dimensional models of objects.

There are also scanners called digital camera scanners. These scanners are based on the concept of reprographic cameras. Digital cameras became an attractive alternative to regular scanners because of the increasing resolution demands and features such as anti-shake. These scanners have disadvantages when it comes to reflections, shadows, low contrast, etc. However, digital cameras offer advantages like portability, speed, and gentle digitizing of thick documents without damaging the book spine. The Color PageWiz scanner’s driver, developed by Microtek, also supports other devices such as: Microtek MS-PNR or MS-PCZ-2 Card , Adaptec AVA-1502E/AE Controller, ScanMaker II, AdvanSys PnP ISA SCSI Host Adapter, AdvanSys EISA SCSI Host Adapter, and AdvanSys VL SCSI Host Adapter. The software’s developer, Microtek, is a Taiwan-based manufacturer of digital imaging products and other consumer electronics. The company also manufactures projectors, digital cameras, and scanners.
