 Image scanner - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, a scanner is a device that analyzes an image (such as a photograph, printed text, or handwriting) or an object (such as an ornament) and converts it to a digital image.
A flatbed scanner is usually composed of a glass pane (or platen), under which there is a bright light (often xenon or cold cathode fluorescent) which illuminates the pane, and a moving optical array, whether CCD or CIS.
Images to be scanned are placed face down on the glass and the sensor array and light source move across the pane reading the entire area.

In the middle of the funnel was a lens, the function of which was to reduce the image of the print's width to the length of the CCD array.
The aspect ratio of any image or scene reproduced through these means is roughly a function of the vertical angle of view of the lens and the horizontal angle of view that one covers.
