That means that the scanner has 600 CCD sensors and the CCD resolution
itself is therefore 600spi, but it essentially travels 4 times as slow or
takes samples in increments of 1/4 of the distance between sensors or 2400
samples per inch, resulting in the claimed "2400spi" lengthwise. Consider
it a 600spi scanner.
If you haven't been there, I suggest you review all the information
