How Digital Scanning Works


Digital scanning or document scanning is the process whereby documents are scanned onto a computer using a digital scanner. Essentially what how this works is that the image is or document is placed onto a scanner. Using mirror imagery and light sensors the image or document is then converted into electronic messages which are then sent to a computer. The image is usually captured in the popular PDF format. These documents or images can also be converted into a higher resolution format known as TIFF.


Many scanners are geared towards A4 or A3 pages and documents. However there are many times when one needs to scan documents that are far larger than these restrictive sizes, which may present a problem. At Scan IT Africa, we work hard to provide our clients with affordable digital scanning services, even of large format scanning services.


We make available our scanning services and the scanning of large format documents that is otherwise unavailable to the general population of South Africa. Digital scanning is not a complicated process if you are only scanning in images that are smaller or equal to A4 size, however when these images become larger it does become more complicated and this is where we offer you professional and expert, value-adding services.
