IPDS Production Print

IPDS™ mode--sometimes referred to as traditional or full IPDS mode--supports duplex printers in both Duplex and Dual Simplex mode. IPDS mode requires one of the host licensed Print Services (PSF) products shown in Table 3.

Each software environment has specific operating system and AFP™ program requirements. For a list of the programs that are required for a particular environment, refer to the corresponding Print Services Facility™ (PSF) publications listed in Advanced Function Presentation™: Printer Information, G544-3290. Also see Advanced Function Presentation Licensed Programs for a listing of AFP software.

If the printer is connected to a Print-on-Demand (POD) server, the printer does not attempt to save pages on the printer. This may cause the printer to run slower when it is printing multiple copies of a document than it would in Print on Demand or when it is printing a document that would have been previously saved in Print on Demand.

Contact your marketing representative for details about ordering these configurations and features.
