The ThinPrint virtual desktop environment can be used by the bizhub to speed up printing of extra-large data files by compressing the print data and reducing network loads.
Functions • Compressing print data - ThinPrint can compress print data by up to a maximum of 99% (when using driver-free printing).
• Controlling network bandwidth - ThinPrint controls the network bandwidth which is allocated to print processing, so that the bandwidth being used by other users and applications can be maintained.
• Driver-free printing - ThinPrint allows printing to be carried out without needing to install printer drivers on all servers. It reduces the costs involved in managing multiple printers and printer drivers.
* bizhub operates as a ThinPrint client (print client).
* ThinPrint is a printing solutions software application developed by the German company Cortado AG.
