3D Fax

An early Windows program from InfoImaging Technologies, Inc., Pleasanton, CA that allowed binary files to be transmitted via fax. The sending software encoded the file into a printed image that was sent to the recipient's fax machine. The image was scanned into the computer and 3D Fax decoded it back to its original file format.
