We have several Image Plate scanners for protein crystallography 
at the Photon Factroy. All of them are off-line scanners. 
I believe off-line scanners have some advantages over on-line scanners. 
For example there is no dead time for reading images, there is no limitation 
of the detector size ( if we put several plates parallel in a casette ).
But if a majority of the shyncrotron users of protein crystallography
realy want to have an on-line IP scanner also at the Photon Factory, 
I will bigin to put in serious efforts to tackle it. 
I will really appreciate any comments and advices.
