RSA’s EPSPro Extends the Capabilities of x86-based Xerox EPS Printers
Press release from the issuing company
Rochester, New York, May 17, 2005 - Rochester Software Associates (RSA) announces the availability of EPSPro x86. For years, EPSPro has offered enhanced functionality for Xerox EPS (Enterprise Printing System) Production Printers using the SPARC processor from Sun. Xerox recently introduced x86-based print controllers, also from Sun. Concurrently, RSA is able to extend the power of EPSPro to these new EPS printers.
EPSPro enhances and extends the functionality of Xerox EPS printers. It runs on the EPS printer controller as an integrated software solution and includes these key features:
•Reprint jobs without reprocess and resend the job from the mainframe. Operators can determine how long to retain jobs for reprint, and whether to reprint the complete job or print a portion of the job.
•EPSPro enhances the connectivity options of EPS printers, including virtually all TCP/IP options, ESCON, as well as Bus & Tag. Confidential print jobs can also be transmitted securely via end-to-end encryption.
•Edit FSLs and compile them to FRMs on the EPS printer controller. There is no need for a special forms design application running on a separate PC. Customers can view and sample resources on the printer. EPSPro supports all FSL commands (highlight color, horizontal and vertical line drawing, box drawing, logo and graphics, text placement, and grids and sections).
•EPSPro automates resource replication across multiple production printers. It eliminates the need to manually update each printer when resources (fonts, forms, logos, images…) change.
According to Tim Kelly, RSA Sr. VP, “Xerox and RSA have both embraced the powerful Sun platform. With the latest Sun based x86-based print controllers from Xerox, there is a great opportunity for improved price-performance and RSA is excited to extend our solutions to this new, powerful platform.”
EPSPro is available immediately and can be ordered exclusively from Xerox.
