SOLscript - VIPP Optimizer

SOLscript is a PostScript preamble that emulates and optimizes Xerox VIPP® software, extending the reach of VIPP applications to virtually all types and brands of workgroup and production printers, as well as ERM/COLD systems. Running in conjunction with PostScript interpreters such as Adobe® Acrobat® Distiller and the PostScript emulation modules of the Solimar® Print Director™ Enterprise (SPDE), SOLscript enables users to reproduce VIPP applications on a variety of devices, including those that support PostScript, PDF, PCL, IPDS, Metacode or TIFF.

SOLscript Workflow

VIPP print files can be submitted to SOLscript via a variety of methods, including TCP/IP, FTP or watched directories. Once submitted, the files are automatically converted into the appropriate output format based on the PostScript interpreter’s functionality. When installed with SPDE, the converted output may be routed to the desired destination device by one of several connectivity options, including TCP/IP, Windows print queue, SCSI or spool file. When running with Acrobat Distiller, the resulting PDF output is generated to a directory.

SOLscript supports full color, highlight color and monochrome devices, as well as a broad range of finishing capabilities such as barcodes, binding, and stitching. SOLscript Manager is also included for managing and tracking any VIPP resources used with SOLscript.
