Best Answer

analog faxes are sent in the same principles of an analogue television, with each scanned line transmitted as a continuous analogue signal. horizontal resolution depended upon the quality of the scanner, transmission line, and the printer.

Digital faxes are digital formats, and take advantage of digital compression methods to greatly reduce transmission times.

To simplify it� it's like the quality difference in watching regular antenna tv versus digital cable. Digital is clearer.

Another alternative would be to purchase a digital fax machine. Thank you for your question. If you found this answer helpful, please click the Accept button!
