Print Quality

General Statement on Print Quality

During the life of the printer, components are subject to wear based on usage. Printers continuously operating at or near the maximum duty cycle may require service for replacement of these components to ensure high quality printing and good performance throughout the life of the printer.

Customer-replaceable maintenance items are recommended every 150,000 pages for the fuser and 105,000 pages for the ITU.

Automatic Calibration

The Infoprint Color 1220 performs an automatic calibration under the following conditions:

  1. At power on
  2. After 8 hours of Power Saver
  3. Every 500 pages
  4. After changing a print cartridge
  5. After changing an intermediate transfer unit

A manual calibration can be initiated by selecting "Color Adjust" from the Utilities Menu.

Color and Black and White Printer Controls

The Infoprint Color 1220 will offer several controls that will allow the user or Printer / Network Administrator to direct the preferred output to be color or black and white.

Driver

A choice to print a color job in black and white is available in Infoprint Color 1220 Drivers. Printing jobs in color is the default setting.

Op Panel

Print Mode

Allows users not utilizing an Infoprint Color 1220 Driver to print a color job in black and white by selecting Black and White from the menu. The selections are color (default setting) and black and white. "Print Mode" is located under the Color Menu. These Op panel selections are ignored when using an Infoprint Color 1220 PostScript or PCL Driver for Windows.

Printer Usage

Printer Usage modes are set to control the starting position of the Intermediate Transfer Unit (ITU) and how the printer software controls its position depending on the color content of the print job and/or the Infoprint Color 1220 Driver or "Print Mode" selection (this applies only to simplex printing, the ITU stays engaged during duplex). There are two selections: Max Speed and Max Yield (default setting). "Printer Usage" is located under the Setup Menu.

Processing a significant number of black pages with the ITU engaged may reduce the life of the color photoconductors and may affect the ultimate life of the color print cartridges (the photoconductor is an integral part of the cartridge).

Maximum print speed is obtained when the Driver and Print Mode are set to color (default settings) and Printer Usage is set to Max Speed. Any other selections can reduce throughput depending on the job content and the selection. It takes approximately one second to lower the ITU and approximately six seconds to raise it. The following table summarizes the effect of selections on the ITU movement.

                    Driver or
"Printer Usage" "Print Mode" ITU Initial
Selection Selection Position ITU Movements
--------------- ------------ -------------- ---------------------
Max Speed Color Raised/Engaged Stays Raised

Monochrome Raised/Engaged Lowers after 3rd page

Max Yield Color Raised/Engaged Lowers after 3rd
black page, raises
for a page with color
content repeats cycle

Monochrome Raised/Engaged Lowers after 3rd page


Black and White Lock

This feature allows Printer/Network Administrators to "lock" the Infoprint Color 1220 printer in a mode that will only print black and white with the ITU disengaged. This feature can not be overridden with any other menu or driver selection. "Black and White Lock" is located under the Configuration Menu.

Color Correction Settings

The Infoprint Color 1220 will offer the following color correction settings:

Auto (Default): Applies different color correction to each object on the printed page depending upon the type of object and how the color for each object is specified.

Vivid: Applies a color correction algorithm that produces brighter, more saturated colors.

Off: No color correction is implemented.

CMYK: Applies color correction to approximate SWOP R color output.

Display: Applies color correction to approximate the colors on a computer display.

Manual: Allows users to customize color correction output from the Op Panel. Setting selectable from the Driver.

Additional Media Guidelines

Follow the media guidelines below for successful printing:

Paper

  • Rough, highly textured, limp, or pre-curled papers will result in lower print quality and more frequent paper feed failures.
  • Colored papers must be able to withstand 190 deg C (400 deg F) fusing temperature.
  • Preprinted forms and letterheads should be selected using guidelines found in the printer User's Guide. The chemical process used in preprinting may render some papers unsuitable for use with the Infoprint Color 1220.
  • Unsuitable papers include multipart forms and documents; chemically treated papers; coated, synthetic and thermal papers; and preprinted papers requiring a high degree of registration.
  • Recycled paper less than 80g/sqm may cause unacceptable results.

Envelopes

  • All envelopes should be new, unused, and without package damage.
  • Envelopes with excessive curl or twist exceeding 6 mm, those stuck together, those with bent corners or nicked edges, or those that interlock should not be used.
  • Minimum weight: 75 g/m2 (20 lb.)
  • The following envelopes should not be used:
    • Envelopes with windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or deep embossing.
    • Envelopes with metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
    • Envelopes with exposed flap adhesive when the flap is in the closed position.
    • For best results, printing on new 90 g/m2 (24 lb.) sulfite or 25% cotton bond envelopes is recommended.
    • Under high humidity conditions (over 60%), envelopes may seal during printing.

Transparencies

  • Use letter or A4-size sheets only.
  • Transparencies specifically designed for xerographic copy machines or laser printers may be used with the Infoprint Color 1220.

Labels

Labels should be selected using guidelines found in the User's Reference, Complete Printer Reference, and tested for acceptability.

Differences Between These Printer's IPDS and Previous IBM Printers

The Infoprint Color 1220 and 1228 printers have a different level IPDS support than the previous IBM workgroup printers. Some key differences are:

  • For emulation, the Infoprint 11xx printers emulate the 4028, 4312, 4317, 4324, 3812/16, and 3112/16. These are LF1 emulations ONLY.
  • Infoprint Color 1220 and 1228 printers do not support "Manage IPDS Dialog".

Details on Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe Emulation

Product Overview:

  • The SCS/TNe or IPDS configuration settings can be changed using MarkNet print server's resident web server, a browser and the printer's IP address.
  • For IPDS emulation printing, the capture of outline fonts (LF3) is now supported.
  • For Infoprint Color 1220 and 1228 and IPDS emulation, staple and offset stacking for the finisher are supported.
  • For Infoprint and IPDS emulation, offset stacking is supported in the printer's standard bin and the finisher bin. Stapling is supported for the finisher.

These affordable Cards for IPDS and SCS/TNe provide configuration flexibility and compatibility for AFP/IPDS or SCS printing over TCP/IP to LAN printers. These Cards for IPDS and SCS/TNe are compatible with IBM mainframe or IBM iSeries applications that generate SCS (LU1) output or with applications that output AFP/IPDS through Print Services Facility (PSF).

IBM continues to make it easy for IS/IT managers to have an affordable printing solution in a distributed network or on a LAN for applications or software that generate AFP/IPDS or SCS. This includes:

  • Using AFP/IPDS and PSF, capture fonts to hard disk or to flash memory resulting in reduced network traffic over LAN, coaxial or twinaxial connections.
  • Supports TN3270E or TN5250E SCS (LU1) over the LAN using TCP/IP with Telnet.
  • No changes to host applications.
  • Supports emulation of common IBM IPDS and SCS printers.
  • Additional or new remote controllers with twinax or coax cabling are unnecessary. However, twinax and coax connections continue to be available using the Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS.
  • One LAN printer can print LAN (PostScript, PCL, etc) and mainframe or iSeries documents (AFP/IPDS, SCS).

With a card and the standard Ethernet network port or a MarkNet print server using TCP/IP, the printer becomes an IBM host workstation printer capable of printing AFP/IPDS or SCS documents from an iSeries or System/390 computer.

With the appropriate host software and one of these options, the IBM printer emulates an IBM mainframe or iSeries host printer. See the compatibility section for details.

With the TN3270E and TN5250E extended Telnet protocol support in these options, the printer emulates one TN3270E printer session and up to 4 TN5250E printer sessions using the LU1 SCS data stream over TCP/IP. This is supported directly from an iSeries or from a mainframe using TCP/IP or through any TN3270E capable gateway that supports TN3270E according to RFC 2355. The DSC/DSE or SCS data streams over LU3 or LU0 are not supported. The Telnet protocol function is only supported with through the standard Ethernet network port or with the MarkNet N2000 print servers. See the compatibility section for more details.

For IPDS emulation, the card supports resident scalable fonts and 300, 600, 1200 image quality or 1200 dpi (except Infoprint 1145) print resolutions. The resolution is selected through an IPDS MENU setting. This setting determines the print resolution of IPDS text, graphics, bar code, scalable image and scalable font data.

The printer can be configured to take advantage of additional RAM, and when attached to a LAN through the standard Ethernet port or a MarkNet print server, can save IPDS resources to improve performance for complex IPDS print jobs with host resources such as fonts, overlays or page segments.

The IPDS emulation supports the IPDS data and resource towers. SBCS fonts can now be downloaded, captured and saved to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. The US Postal Bar code POSTNET font and the Euro currency symbol are supported within IPDS.

The Euro currency symbol is also supported for the SCS, PostScript and PCL 6 emulations.

Fonts

AFP/IPDS Font and Typestyle Support:

The Card for IPDS supports resident scalable fonts. The font complement with 12 typestyles supports the IBM Font Collection (Core Int erchange Scalable Font Sets - Courier, Times New Roman and Helvetica faces).

The following languages are supported:

  • Latin 1: Afrikaans, Belgian (French and Dutch), Brazilian Portuguese, Canadian English, Canadian French, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Latin American Spanish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish (Castillian), Swedish, Swiss (German, French and Italian), United Kingdom English, United States English
  • Latin 2/ROECE: Albanian, Croatian, Czech, East German, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian
  • Latin 3, 4, 5 and 6: Maltese, Turkish, Estonian, Greenlandic, Lappish, Latvian, Lithuanian
  • Greek
  • Cyrillic for: Bulgarian, Byelorussian, Macedonian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Ukrainian.

The font complement for the IBM Coordinated Scalable Font Set provides support for Latin 1 languages in 3 Letter Gothic (medium, bold and italic) and 3 Prestige (medium, bold and italic) scalable typestyles. Scalable OCR-A and OCR-B typestyles are supIntl-Univers-Boldported.

The following fonts are supported using bitmaps: APL 12, Boldface PS, Boldface Italic PS, OCR-A 10, OCR-B 10 and Prestige PS. The OCR bitmap fonts have different FGIDs than the scalable font versions.

The IBM 4028 Compatibility Font set consists of 22 fixed pitch typestyles supported by bitmap fonts. Times Roman typestyles (13) are created from Times New Roman scalable typestyles of the same weight and style.

The IBM 3812/3816 Compatibility Font set consists of 35 typestyles supported by bitmap fonts at 240 dpi.

Font Capture

Fonts can also be captured dynamically and saved (cached) to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. A captured font then appears as a printer resident font. If many fonts are used in the jobs that are printed, capturing fonts and saving them in the printer will decrease network traffic on busy networks.

PSF defines fonts as either public or private. In order to capture a font, it must be marked as eligible and public. A private font is not eligible to be captured.

Note:Do not mark sensitive fonts such as signatures and MICR fonts as eligible to be captured. Check the font licensing information before a font is made eligible for capture.

If a font is to be captured, the appropriate files for the coded font or character set and code page resources must all be marked.

The printer must also be defined as capable to capture fonts in PSF. For bitmap fonts, the font resolution of the font captured must match the resolution of the emulated printer for it to be recognized by the printer as a printer resident font. For example, the IBM 3812 and 3816 printer emulations require 240 dpi fonts. The IBM 4028 printer emulation requires 300 dpi fonts.

iSeries

On the iSeries, Font capture is supported by OS/400 V4R5 or later. To define the printer as capable to capture, in the PSF configuration (CRTPSFCFG/CHGPSFCFG), set FNTCAPTURE (*YES).

Eligible fonts must be marked. Display the font attributes to identify marked fonts (DSPFNTRSCA). Verify that *YES is specified for the Font Capture attribute. Use Create Font Resource (CRTFNTRSC) to mark font resources from other systems. Use Change Font Resource (CHGFNTRSC) to mark fonts that are not marked as eligible.

For a font to be eligible for capture, it must have non zero fields for FGID and GCSGID. Any fonts captured and saved in the printer's hard disk or flash memory are saved across instances of the writer.

Mainframe (OS/390 or z/OS)

Font capture is supported by PSF for OS/390 or z/OS. Use APSRMARK to mark eligible fonts if they are not already marked. The IBM Font Collection fonts are already marked as eligible for capture.

Font capture is supported by PSF for OS/390 or z/OS 2.2.1 with APAR DY43969. With PSF for OS/390 or z/OS, use APSRMARK to mark eligible fonts if they are not already marked.

SCS Font and Typestyle Support

The SCS emulation uses the default resolution set using the Quality menu from the printer's operator panel. The SCS emulation in the card uses PCL fonts from the printer firmware. If the printer is set to 600 dpi, then all SCS data is printed with 600 dpi PCL fonts. It is possible to imbed PCL and PJL commands into the SCS data stream and pass them to the printer utilizing ASCII transparency.

On the iSeries, fonts can be selected by specifying the FGID (Font Global Identifier) or by characters per inch (CPI). With IBM mainframes, only CPI font selection is possible.

A parameter in the SCS data stream (Final Form Text (Level 2) Document Content Architecture (FFT (L2) DCA)) Page Presentation media (PPM) command is used to control Duplex printing.

These 6 fonts are included in SCS emulation as 300 dpi bitmap fonts: OCR-B (3), Boldface Italic (155), Boldface (159), Essay (160), Essay Bold (163) and Document (175).

Compatibility

For the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe, IPDS is supported under the IPDS MENU settings and SCS is supported under the SCS/TNe MENU settings.

Note:Microcode updates and User's Guides are available from the IBM Web site. See the appropriate User's Guide for configuration instructions.

Note:When the printer is emulating an IBM printer, the function supported depends on the IBM host software.

For Direct Network Attachment - Hardware Compatibility

When the printer contains an optional Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe, it attaches to a network using one of the following MarkNet print servers:

(#4821) Optra Forms Director Feature
  • Minimum required = 0
  • maximum allowed = 1
  • Prerequisite = Optra Forms Software (FC 4871)
  • Co-requisite = none

Optra Forms Director is a Windows NT or Windows 2000 server-based program. Using additional host software (AS/400, UNIX or Mainframe), the host application sends a print spool file to a Windows NT or 2000 print queue. Optra Forms Director service automatically pareses the print spool file into single or multiple print jobs using Microsoft Visual Basic Script or JScript methods and Named Pipes.

The spool file which may contain many individual documents is customized by separating it into individual jobs or by adding data or particular commands to the individual documents that are then sent to IP, LPR, or Windows printer destinations. The additional data or commands may be to staple, separate documents with a cover page, copy and collate, print on both sides, offset stack, fax, or hole punch each individual job. Print jobs are customized and distributed electronically to network printers automatically without making any changes to host applications.

Optra Forms is supported on the Infoprint Color 1220 using a Optra Forms flash or Hard Disk. Only one Optra Forms flash DIMM is supported. If a Flash DIMM and Optra Forms Flash DIMM are both installed, the Optra Forms DIMM will be used.

  • maximum allowed = 1
  • Prerequisite = Optra Forms Flash (FCs 4874, 4875, 4876) or Optra Forms Hard Disk w/Adapter (FC 4877)
  • Co-requisite = none

Optra Forms Manager enables administrators to manage and distribute forms to multiple printers over a TCP/IP network. This includes loading new forms and updating existing forms on an Optra Forms printer over a TCP/IP network.

Optra Forms Manager lets you:

  • Keep a master copy of all forms on a PC
  • Update all printers at same time over TCP/IP after a printer query for its resident Styles and creation dates. Only matching Styles (flash files) with different creation dates are downloaded to the printer over TCP/IP.
  • Import a printer IP address txt file (also from MarkVision(tm) registry)
  • Select the printers to which the Download or Update operations apply.
  • Run the update as a batch job
  • Create a log file to know successful printer updates
  • Create a Style report and save it to a comma separated variable (CSV) file giving better knowledge about the forms in all the printer. The Style report includes the printer listed by their IP address or DNS name and a description, Style names and their versions and the Optra Forms Merge program version in each printer.
  • Create PDF files (using Acrobat Distiller) of the data merged with forms after retrieving archive data files from the Optra Forms hard disk. The PDF file can be saved as a softcopy archive file. With an Optra Forms hard disk, create a job buffering partition or change its size. After the disk is formatted and partitioned, the Optra Forms Merge program is written to the disk.

To use Optra Forms Manager, the Optra Forms printers must be connected to a TCP/IP network. The LPR protocol is also supported to download forms.

Optra Forms Manager is now available on a separate CD for those customers who want to use this program to more effectively manage their Optra Forms printers over TCP/IP. Other third party service providers can also manage their customers forms more cost effectively.
