Image Scanner—often abbreviated to just scanner, although the term is ambiguous and out of context (Barcode Scanner, CAT scanner etc.)—is a
device that optically Scans Images, Printed Text, Handwriting or an object and converts it to a Digital Image. Commonly used in offices are
variations of the Desktop Flatbed scanner where the document is placed on a glass window for scanning. Hand-held scanners, where the device
is moved by hand, have evolved from text scanning "wands" to 3D scanners used for Industrial Design, Reverse Engineering, Test and Measurement,
Gaming and other applications. Mechanically Driven Scanners that move the document are typically used for large-format documents, where a flatbed
design would be impractical.
