File Size Difference Between Control Panel Display and Actual Output Explained

What you will see

When performing Scan to Network ( SNF), the file size shown on the printer screen is greater than that of the actual scan output.

This happens on Portable Document Format ( PDF) scan jobs only.


By design, the file size shown on the printer’s control panel is the actual raw size of the scanned document, which the SNF app compresses to an actual output with a smaller file size.
