There are two basic types of large format scanners, flatbed and sheetfed.  Pretty much all scanner manufacturers that make flatbed scanners, make what they call "large format scanners".  These include Canon, Epson, HP, Microtek and others.  What they are referring to are flatbed scanners with a scanning area of typically 12 by 17 inch or "tabloid size" scanning beds.  Sheetfed large format scanners tend to be much larger with some having the ability to scan items as wide as 54 inches.
