It all depends on how smart the scanner is, if the scanner is a true
network scanner which can dump encode data and dump files to a NAS
automatically, the bandwidth is pretty minimal -- Just look at the size
of the resulting file.
However, if you're talking a $35 bargain basement scanner, then you're
absolutely correct about the bulk of data.
