IBM 3117 MODEL 011 SCANNER AND PC ADAPTER (220V - 240V, 50/60 HZ)
ANNOUNCED
IBM announces  the IBM  3117 Scanner, a  desk-top, flat  bed page
scanner, which scans various kinds  and sizes of paper documents.
A flat bed scanner is especially suitable to scan images in bound
documents, signature cards, carbon-backed or odd-sized documents.
It has  a resolution of up  to 240 (horizontal) x  240 (vertical)
picture elements  per inch,  (94.5  x  94.5 picture  elements per
centimeter) with a  scan area of letter or A4  size.  It provides
image input to both personal and host computer systems.
IBM is also announcing  the IBM 3117 PC Adapter card  and the IBM
3117  Extension  Unit as  an  IBM  3117 Scanner  features.  These
features facilitate the attachment of the  IBM 3117 Scanner to an
IBM  3193  Display  Station  or to  the  following  IBM  Personal
Computers: IBM PC, IBM PC-XT,  IBM Personal Computer-AT, IBM 3270
PC and IBM  Personal Computer AT. The IBM 3117  PC Adapter allows
the  scanner to  send  image data  to  an  IBM Personal  Computer
without  compression   for  further  processing.  The   IBM  3117
Extension Unit compresses the image data in the IBM 3117 Scanner.
Image data compression  is a technique to  save transmission time
and reduce storage requirements.
The High Speed Adapter, announced with  the IBM 3118, may also be
used in the PC with a connected IBM 3117 and Extension Unit.
HIGHLIGHTS
o Compact desk-top  flat-bed scanner allowing  the scanning  of a
page from bound documents, and of irregular paper size or weight.
o Scan speed per page --- approximately  30 seconds (8 1/2' x 11'
page).
o Program selectable scanning resolutions
o Program specifiable partial page scan
o Program selectable  digital halftone  emulating grey  levels of
pictures.
o Image data compression*
o Contrast control via dynamic thresholding and edge enhancement*
NOTE *
Requires 3117 Extension Unit Feature.
DESCRIPTION
The IBM 3117 Scanner is a desk-top, flat-bed image scanner with a
small footprint, light weight, low noise and heat generation, for
use with an IBM Personal Computer or an IBM 3193 Display Station.
The  scanner is  capable  of scanning  up to  letter  or A4  size
images.  The flat-bed  design facilitates  scanning a  page in  a
bound document,  a part  of a large  page or  paper of  odd size,
shape or paper weight. The scanner can scan a letter size (8 1/2'
x 11') or A4 size page in approximately 30 seconds.
Partial page scan is provided under  program control. One or more
rectangular areas can be defined  for selective scanning within a
page. Through the  use of this function,  unnecessary information
can be eliminated, thus reducing the  image data volume. The user
can  control   darkness,  contrast,   and  halftoning   for  each
rectangular area individually.
Some inks of red, orange or  yellow color may not be successfully
scanned by the IBM 3117. The  maximum weight of a document placed
on the scanner's flat-bed is 2.2 pounds (1 kilogram). The scanner
flat-bed opening is 8.5 x 11.7 inches (216 x 297 mm). The scanner
optics cannot  scan information  within approximately  .06 inches
(1.5 mm)  of the top and  bottom edges of the  flat-bed's opening
and  approximately .12  inches  (3.1 mm)  of  both  sides of  the
flat-bed's opening.
The scanner  has a resolution  of up to  240 x 240  pels (Picture
Elements) per  inch. Horizontal and vertical  scanning resolution
are program selectable and can be:
o 240 x 240 pels per inch (94.5 x 94.5 pels per centimeter)
o 240 x 120 pels per inch (94.5 x 47.2 pels per centimeter)
o 120 x 120 pels per inch (47.2 x 47.2 pels per centimeter)
Darkness control is  specified by the user  through the selection
of an appropriate  threshold level via program  control, enabling
the scanner to  scan a darker copy,  a lighter copy or  a colored
original document.
Digital halftoning is provided to  improve the quality of scanned
pictures by  emulating grey  levels. Up to  17 levels  of digital
halftones can  be supported.  Digital halftoning  makes use  of a
matrix of 4 x  4 pels to determine the grey  level of the scanned
image.
The IBM  3117 Extension  Unit makes  use of  an Intel  80186 (TM)
microprocessor to  provide additional  image processing  power in
the  scanner.   The  extension  unit  provides   four  additional
capabilities to the IBM 3117 Scanner, including:
o Attachment  to the  IBM PC  via  general purpose  communication
adapters (as described in the paragraph below).
o Attachment to the IBM 3193 Display Station
o Image compression in the scanner
o Contrast control
The  scanner works  in two  environments:  IBM Personal  Computer
attachment and IBM 3193 Display  Station attachment. The IBM 3117
Scanner can be  attached to an IBM Personal Computer  via the IBM
3117 PC Adapter card or via the  IBM 3117 Extension Unit. The IBM
3117 PC Adapter is a feature of IBM  3117 and is installed in the
system  unit of  an  IBM Personal  Computer.  When  the IBM  3117
Extension Unit is installed on  the scanner, the scanner attaches
to  the IBM  PC through  one of  the following  PC adapters;  the
Asynchronous Communication Adapter, Serial/Parallel Communication
Adapter,or the High Speed Adapter.
NOTE
For  System/36  or  System/38   attached  PCs,  the  asynchronous
communications  adapter speed  should not  exceed  9600 bps.  For
System/36 or  System/38 attachment, other  operating restrictions
will be identified in HONE.
The  scanner can  also attach  directly  to an  IBM 3193  Display
Station via the IBM 3117 Extension Unit.
Scanning of  documents results in an  image bit map. The  size of
the  bit  map is  dependent  primarily  upon the  pel  resolution
selected by the operator under program control.
For example, when  an 8 1/2 x 11  inch page is scanned  at  240 x
240 pel resolution, the resulting bit  map can be over 700K bytes
of information. The large amount of  data can be more efficiently
handled by compressing  the raw image bit map.   The objective of
compression techniques is to reduce the  amount of data needed to
represent  the scanned  image.  The method  used  by IBM's  Image
products to reduce  or compress the scanned image  data is called
Modified Modified Read (MMR). This  technique can achieve average
ratios of  27 to 1. This  ratio may vary because  the compression
ratio for  a specific  document depends  on the  document's image
characteristics.
The IBM 3117 PC Adapter allows the IBM 3117 Scanner to send image
data to an IBM Personal  Computer without compression for further
processing or for compression of the  raw image data by a program
running in  the IBM  PC.  Compression  can be  done by  the Image
Support Facility  2 licensed program  running in an  IBM Personal

Computer.
The IBM 3117 Extension Unit allows  for compression of image data
in the  IBM 3117  Scanner. Under  program control,  the IBM  3117
Extension Unit  will also  send raw image  data, in  addition to,
compressed image data.
Contrast control is achieved using  dynamic thresholding and edge
enhancement  functions of  the IBM  3117  Extension Unit.   These
functions are  useful for capturing  images with  various quality
levels,  especially for  scanning  an image  where  there is  low
contrast between the image and its background. The functions also
make the edges  of characters or lines look  sharper and crisper.
The edge enhancement is especially useful when the image consists
of pictures and characters using digital halftone. Contrast level
is selectable under program control.
The  IBM 3117  Scanner and  Extension  Unit attaching  in a  host
environment to an IBM 3193 Display Station is supported by:
o GDDM Version 2, Release 1 or higher
o GDDM-IVU (Image View Utility)
Operating Systems and Subsystems
o MVS/TSO
o MVS/CICS
o VM/CMS
o VSE/CICS
The IBM  3117 Scanner  attached to  an IBM  Personal Computer  is
supported by  the Image Support  Facility 2 Version  1.0 licensed
program.
