IPDS Print on Demand (POD)

4100 printers in Duplex mode support switching between IPDS Print on Demand (POD) and IPDS Production Print automatically. Print on Demand is automatically enabled by the printer in Duplex mode, or Dual Simplex mode when using InfoPrint Manager. (Simplex models support only IPDS Production Print.)

Print on Demand works with an InfoPrint Manager for AIX server to cache one copy of a job in the printer and then print it multiple times. The job does not begin printing until the entire job is stored in the printer's memory. Print on Demand can also be used to store a job in the printer that may otherwise not print at rated speed. When the printer definition in the InfoPrint Manager server is set to "Optimize for multiple copies", it activates the job caching for any printer capable of Print on Demand.
