IPDS/AFP Host Printing Solution
The IPDS integration solution installs via SD card or on the hard drive of printers, workgroup multifunction and high-speed production devices and transforms AFP/IPDS for professional laser output. The integration software for IPDS enables iSeries and zSeries system users to achieve professional laser output from print jobs using the Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) page description language, including Advanced Function Presentation (AFP) data streams.
