SCS Printer Emulation Modules

The SCS printer emulation modules of the Solimar® Print Director™ Enterprise (SPDE) enable printing AS/400, Stratus, and S/3X line data and OfficeVision applications onto Xerox LPS Metacode printers. Data from the host is printed to the Solimar print server through a TCP/IP input connection. These emulations can be used in conjunction with other modules to seamlessly provide SCS conversions to IPDS, PCL, PostScript and TIFF.

SCS Printer Emulation Modules

SCS::3211 Module

The SCS::3211 Module converts SCS twinax line printer data to a Bus/Tag 3211 format. The module is configured with line spacing and Xerox DJDE control options.

SCS::Metacode Module

The SCS::Metacode Module converts AS/400 word processing (document-oriented) applications into Metacode for printing to high-speed production printers. Configuration options include color specification, DJDE control, carriage control, and font symbol set use.
