IKON Releases Print-Transform Software
IKON Office Solutions announced the immediate availability of IKON PowerPort, an integrated print-transform software solution. IKON PowerPort, powered by technology from Rochester Software Associates, simplifies the processing of legacy data streams and enables both mainframe and network print jobs to run on the same equipment.
IKON PowerPort, the only print-transform solution to reside on the Canon imageRUNNER 110 and Pro 150+ controllers, gives customers greater flexibility and control in optimizing production printer use. Allowing print jobs to be completed anywhere on the network and boosting print quality of mainframe jobs, the IKON PowerPort is for customers seeking replacements to aging printers or consolidating data centers as they reduce enterprise printing costs. IKON PowerPort is also available as a standalone solution for light production environments.
PowerPort's features include:
The automatic conversion of Xerox LCDS (DJDE, Metacode and XES/UDK) and IBM (AFP/IPDS) data streams to industry standard PostScript and PCL, allowing printing on network printers without costly reprogramming
Support for all Xerox LCDS commands
Control over complex paper management and full OTEXT support
The ability to merge images, electronic forms and variable data
Automatic PDF creation of all or selected jobs for archival and reprint
A companion print capability that drives jobs to smaller network printers to provide back-up or small job off-loading
An easy-to-use interface that does not require in-house Unix or Solaris operating system knowledge.
The IKON PowerPort is available immediately from IKON throughout the United States and Canada with a retail price starting at $16,000. For more information go to www.ikon.com.
