The main screen of SCORSCAN with a sample image loaded. The main controls are located at the right, enabling 1) one click scanning and recognition, 2) recognition of a pre-existing image and 3) configuration of the parameters used for recognition. There are also buttons for stepping forward or backwards through a series of sequentially named image files.

Once SCORSCAN starts to process an image, it must find the staves. This is indicated in the thumbnail image by green bars which are drawn wherever SCORSCAN finds a piece of stave and then these pieces are linked together by further green lines showing the horizontal extent of each stave.

Once SCORSCAN has found the staves and isolated the musical symbols from the stavelines, the symbols themselves are processed. As each musical symbol is recognized, this is indicated in the thumbnail image by its bounding box being drawn in red.

SCORSCAN then runs SCORE(tm) and reads in the music data in order to reconstruct the original page.

A low resolution (100 dots per inch) version of the original page. Typically, a resolution of 300 dots per inch is used with SCORSCAN.
