IT managers and system administrators have long struggled to make IBM AS400-based data and Mainframe spooled files available in Windows environments. With IPDS Print Server software, AS400 host data and Mainframe spooled files can be sent to Windows-based printers or accessed on Windows-based systems.
IPDS Print Server allows PC users to emulate their existing Laserjet, Inkjet printers, or MFP devices into IPDS capable printers that fully supports the IPDS (Intelligent Printer Data Stream) protocol.
Using this software emulation solution for IPDS printing, users can print reports of IBM IPDS data streams produced from a wide range of systems such as AS400, i series, IBM power, and mainframe systems with a resolution up to 600 dpi, plus seamless emulation switching. Users also get tray and bin mapping and integrated-solution support features.
IPDS Print Server is a pure software emulation solution for IPDS printing, which translates IPDS directly into common printer languages eliminating the need for expensive investment on specialized hardware, extra software, and major reprogramming on the host side.
The IPDS Print Server software assigns a hot folder as a virtual tray to each of your non-IPDS printers, and it enables fast and flexible printing from mainframe, midrange and other non-Windows host systems - such as UNIX, AIX, AS400, IBM Power Series, System z, and Linux - to any Windows-based printers.
Easy to install and integrate, IPDS Print Server simplifies cross-platform printing and central management of print jobs. With the help of IPDS to PDF (Portable Document Format) converter plug-in, users can print AFP / IPDS to PDF files without difficulty, thereby conserving bandwidth, and promoting fast transmission of print documents for previewing, printing and archiving.
Organizations using IPDS Print Server will gain the benefits of increased efficiency, productivity and reduced cost.
