Digitizers convert analog or physical input into digital images. This makes them related to both scanners and mice, although current digitizers serve completely different roles.


Modern digitizers appear as flat scanning surfaces or tablets that connect to a computer workstation. The surface is touch-sensitive, sending signals to the software, which translates them into images on the screen
Digitizers carry out important work in computer-aided design, graphics design and engineering. They also help convert hand-drawn images into textures and animation in video games and movie CGI.
