Hi all.

Is it possible that the stripes in the Avision-USB scans appear, because we do
no yet do any calibration? (The SCSI ones do not need / and even to do support
it). - But they are really black and very regular ... ???

Hm. Now when I watch to these two pictures they are not as black as the ones I
got via eMail. Seems to be clear that the USB scanners _simply_ need software
calibration and software color pack (color channel displacement).

I will do this in the next days ...
