The ScanTek scanner driver has the following features:

 1. Support of the following SCSI Microtek scanner models:
        ScanMaker E3, ScanMaker 35t, ScanMaker E6,
        Highscreen PerfectScan, older Highscreen HighScan

        Microtek ScanMaker 636, 336 and x6 (old model)

        Microtek E3PLUS, V300, 330, 630 and new Highscreen HighScan

           This new scanner model can be used in black&white, grey scale
           and color scanning.
           The download of color lookup tables (gamma curves) is now
           Color scan images can contain a shifted segment, if the image
           data is written to a harddisk on the same SCSI host adapter.
           The image data should be written to a harddisk on another SCSI
           host adapter or to a IDE harddisk.

    Support of the following SCSI Mustek Paragon scanner models:
        Three Pass Scanners:
        Paragon 6000CX, 8000CX (not tested), 12000CX all should work

        One or Single Pass Scanners:
        Paragon 6000SP, 8000SP, 12000SP (now supported) all should work
        Paragon 6000CZ, 8000CZ (not tested)

        Paragon 600IISP, 800IISP

    The following scanner models are in the development phase:
        ScanMaker X6 (new model)

    The following scanner models are recognized but not fully supported: 
        Mustek ScanExpress 12000SP
        Mustek Paragon 1200IIISP (caution: III -> version 3)
           Color scanning is only successfull at resolutions of 150, 300,
           600 and 1200 dpi.
           Grey scale scanning is possible.
           If the image to be scanned exceeds the scan buffer size than
           the image is corrupt. This effect is independent from the
           scan mode.
           The scanning quality is also (!) dependent from the used
           SCSI host adapter.
           The ScanExpress or Paragon 12000IIISP scanner models are
           not recommended for ScanTek.
           At least until sometimes in the future the corresponding
           Mustek SCSI programming documentation for these new models
           is available. I think this might be a Millenium projekt.

    The following scanner models are not supported by now: 
        All remaining Mustek ScanExpress and Paragon IIISP models.

    The following scanner models are not supported:
        Canon, Epson, HP, Umax and any parallelport scanner.

    Attention: In recent times Mustek has changed the scanner firmware.
               I urge you to test Mustek scanners with your Amiga
               configuration before buying it.

               Mustek scanners have a critical SCSI interface. It
               was reported to me that these scanners may not work
               with the A2091 and A3000(T) internal SCSI interface.
               It is possible that these scanners do not work with
               other SCSI host adapters, either.
               But the Mustek 6000CX and Paragon MFS-12000SP work in
               combination with an Oktagon SCSI host adapter.
               Be sure to disable reselection for Mustek scanners
               on your SCSI host adapter. Otherwise your system may
               not boot.

 2. Support of black/white, built-in halftone (dither), one-pass-color-scan,
    three pass color scan, grey, red, green and blue scan.

 3. Individual setting of resolution, scanning frame, contrast, shadow,
    midtone, highlight, exposure time and scanning speed for download to the

 4. Download of a color look up table (gamma correction table ) to the scanner

 5. Scanning to IFF File of 1, 8 or 24 bit color depth. The maximum size of
    the scanned image is independent from the RAM size. After the scanning
    process it is possible to start an external program.

 6. GUI for preview and configuration of the driver. You need Kickstart 2.04
    but Kickstart 3.0 is recommended.

 7. Sizeable preview window in black/white or grey scale. Color preview
    on Cybergraphix screens (15, 16 or 24 bit necessary).
    There are much more skilled programs to view and manipulate the scanned
    images in color. (A tool like ADPRO, IMAGE FX or so is needed, if you
    want to do sophisticated postproduction)

 8. ARexx support

 9. Screenmode requester to define custom screen for working. The actual public
    screen is supported as well

 10. Configurable SCSI device and SCSI ID. The driver supports only SCSI
     connectable scanners.

 11. The driver is tested with the following SCSI drivers: oktagon.device and
     gvpscsi.device V4.5.

 12. ScanTek is written using SAS C 6.58.

 13. ScanTek is SHAREWARE.

 14. The non registered version of ScanTek is a full working version, but all
     scanned images have black lines to motivate you to register.
     Additionally the maximum size of the preview is restricted.
