Advanced Function Image and Graphics

The Advanced Function Image and Graphics facility within the AFCCU(TM) allows the printer to directly process IOCA (Image Object Content Architecture) images, and GOCA (Graphics Object Content Architecture) data, as described in the IBM(R) Intelligent Printer Data Stream(TM) Reference, S544-3417.

Improved processing occurs with the use of compressed images or vector graphics data in the GOCA format by reducing demand on attachment data transfer and host storage.

When the printer decompresses images or rasterizes vectors instead of the host system, host system processing cycles are reduced. These data stream functions also allow the printer to perform scaling operations or resolution correction of scanned images.
