Both machines should use standard SMPTE or DEL test charts to set image
geometry correctly at the start of the days work or the start of a job.
Apparently this wasn't done so that explains the discrepancy.  Setting
geometry is SOP for most operators and should not have been an issue here.
It is not an inherent limitation of either machine to show this error.
