Group 4 FAX - Case Study


John Wales


ICI Chemicals & Polymers Ltd and the British Library Document Supply Center carried out a trial of a Group IV facsimile service during 1989 with NEC equipment. The technical and service issues are discussed as well as a wider examination of the potential of this technology. The main conclusions reached are that Group IV facsimile has cheaper operating costs although it is capital intensive.Given adequate resource to resolve any telecommunications problems, the majority of technical difficulties experienced were minor. A future Group IV service is largely dependent on integrated flat bed scanners in order to eliminate intermediate photocopying.
