I tried to hack compression algo used on Lexmark
lx2480 without success. I sort of gave up because it turned out being
so difficult to get any sort of "controlled data" out of it. Every
scan is different and lexmark drivers only saves
in lossy image format, making comparison difficult. Tying some of
the data pins high/low might help with this to some degree. It didn't
appear to be adaptive IIRC.
has some speculation and some data if you want to compare.
