Referring to Figure 1, the circuits and means
at the left of the dotted line comprises a scanner
of a well-known type including a drum I on which
a picture or subject to be scanned is mounted. A

This transmission may take place as stated‘ above
at the picture or subject margin and is applicable
to all scanning systems known today, such as,
for ‘example, those wherein the drum rotates at
a fairly high speed and the scanning element

and ‘contacts BI and 62 actuated therefrom and
described more in detail later, controls a circuit
