ExcelliPrint: Advanced IPDS Printing Features

ExcelliPrint is an IPDS print server receiving IPDS print jobs from a mainframe and printing them on any Windows printer, desktop or network.With ExcelliPrint® installed, AS/400 and mainframe users can send AFP/IPDS-based print jobs to Windows printers or save the jobs to disk in a variety of formats. The software allows users to bypass traditionally expensive printing environments and take advantage of lower-cost, ubiquitous printers and common file formats, like PDF.

With print-to-file and Windows printer capabilities, ExcelliPrint bridges the gap between advanced printing and output device choice. ExcelliPrint offers IPDS users the following features:


FeatureDescriptionBenefit
Support for all IPDS TowersSupports the Text, IM Image, IO Image, Graphics, Font, and Bar Code (Barcode) towers of the IPDS architecture. ExcelliPrint's support of all IPDS towers allows you to harness the power of IBM's Advanced Function Presentation (AFP), bringing it to your Windows environment.
Driver independent printingExcelliPrint prints directly to ANY Windows-based printer.No need to purchase an IPDS printer or additional hardware for your printer; ExcelliPrint spools your mainframe/mid-range AFP data to any Windows environment.
AFP (IPDS & AFPDS) and SCS to PDFConverts legacy formats to the universal PDF format.PDF is one of the most widely used formats. ExcelliPrint allows you to easily convert your AFP documents into PDF for easy viewing, distribution, etc. For AFP to PDF conversion we refer IHS Systems
Conversion of IPDS, AFPDS, and SCS to other formatsSave incoming print jobs in a variety of widely used file formats.ExcelliPrint can convert your IPDS documents to PDF and widely used printer-ready formats including PCL.
Print-to-file archivingThe ability to save files to selected archive folders on the user's computer or on the network.You can save the converted IPDS output to a network storage unit, a Windows share, or your own PC. This gives you the ability to archive and manage your print jobs.
Multiple ports listening for print requests simultaneouslyUser can configure multiple ports, each with its own IPDS printer emulation and output device; each user-configured port can accept simultaneous connections.Unlike other IPDS solutions, ExcelliPrint accepts data on multiple connections on a single port without delays and supports multiple ports. As a result, you can consolidate multiple IPDS printers without server-side modifications.
Support for two output devicesA device can be a printer or folder; users can configure up to two. Devices can be local or remote.Unlike comparable products that are licensed for only one device, ExcelliPrint supports two output devices. ExcelliPrint includes sophisticated archiving abilities normally found in high-end solutions.
