Want to have automatic batch printing? Need to do encoding over a network securely? Want to configure your print farm of multiple printers for batch printing?
The CardExchange® Producer Print Server Edition is created to offer secure printing and inline encoding over your network. The Print Server receives it's data from the Print Client via an AES encrypted protocol making sure that no data is visible inside your network. In combination with the Print Dispatcher Edition, complete print farm solutions can be created!
The Print Server receives the print jobs directly from the Print Client(s) or from the Dispatcher. Another advantage of the Print Server is the fact that it collects all the print jobs locally and executes them when the connected ID card printer becomes available. That means that on the moment that you send a 100 print jobs to the Print Server, the Print Client directly becomes available again after all the jobs have been received. Who does not recognize the horror of waiting until all the print jobs are completed and all ID cards are produced before you can do anything again with your application? Not anymore when using the Print Server Edition!
For each ID card printer you will need one (1) CardExchange® Producer Print Server. There are basically no limitations with regards to the amount of Print Servers that can be used but we advise, especially if you are using inline encoding, not to use more then four (4) Print Servers per computer.
As each printer has its own tolerances, the Print Server also offers functionality to make adjustments to the ID card printer settings and/or card templates.
