Hello Rod,

I am not sure if SANE is fast enough for your needs.
May be it would be a good idea if you would do some tests at first.
Did you check if SANE supports your scanners at all?

XSane is not implemented as high speed tool, its basic idea was to
create a tool for home and small offices use. So xsane may also be a
bottlebeck for your plans.

It may be a good idea to write about your project on the sane-devel
mailing list on , there may be some people
who have experience with high throughput questions.

best reards
