A fax is the telephonic transmission of scanned printed material, normally to a telephone number connected to a printer or other output device. The original document is scanned with a fax machine, which then processes the contents as a single fixed graphic image, converts it into a bitmap, and then tranmits it through the telephone line. The receiving fax machine reconverts the coded image, printing a paper copy. Faxing used to be huge before the rise of email, but why hasn't faxing died out yet? The dinosaur of the tech world has new ways to stay relevant. Find out about them in the following infographic.
