PCL Conversion Module

The PCL::Metacode printer emulation module of the Solimar® Print Director™ Enterprise (SPDE) enables printing PCL applications onto Xerox LPS printers by converting the print data and resources into Xerox Metacode. This can also be used in conjunction with other modules to seamlessly provide PCL conversions to IPDS, PDF, PostScript, and TIFF.

PCL::Metacode is feature-rich and can convert data at hundreds of pages per minute.
