[filmscanners] RE: SS4000 & SCSI under Vista



Jim,

Most of the scanners up until currently used TWAIN drivers and there were no
universal 64 bit TWAIN standards or specs as was the case for 32 bit twain
drivers; hence, no 64 bit TWAIN drivers were ever produced at any time.  The
net result was that there were no scanners that would work on 64 bit
operating systems as 64 bit scanners.  I am not really sure; but I think
that the 32 bit TWAIN drivers will work under the 64 bit Windows XP
operating system.  As far as I know, there will be no 64 bit Twain drivers
being developed for any of the brands or types of scanners in the future.

The newer flatbed scanners have gotten much better in terms of their quality
and optical resolutions; but I still think they are lacking if one is
scanning small format film with the intent of enlarging the images to
anything beyond 8 x 10 without resorting to the use good high quality
interpolation methods or of cropping out segments of the image for
enlargement.  Some of these scanners may in the future come out with 64 bit
drivers if there is a market for 64 bit; but it will either be in the form
of WMA compliant drivers for use with MICROSOFT 64 bit operating systems and
not TWAIN drivers (since I do not believe that Apple has a 64 bit operating
system or plans to come out with one in the near future - but I could be
wrong).  I have the feeling that Microsoft's WMA protocol will become the
standard for scanner drivers even if Apple comes out with a 64 bit OS.
