Description

The Infoprint Color 1567 is a high performance departmental color printer that is designed for productivity to meet the needs of medium and large workgroups. The printer's excellent 2400 Image Quality prints crisp text and high quality graphics. The Infoprint Color 1567 effectively prints applications within the general office including departmental printing, engineering drawings, scientific drawings, marketing materials presentations and on demand brochures.

Customers can take total control of their color output using powerful device features that limit access to color printing by user or by specifying times that the device can be accessed. Color quality can be maximized by using color brightness, contrast and saturation adjustments. Color output costs can be managed by using toner saver, color saver, and the coverage estimator.

Increase productivity by using the intuitive all points addressable operator panel that provides easy to use navigational menus and "show me" graphics and text that communicate printer status and simplify problem resolution. By using the powerful user interface and the standard ImageQuick solution, frequently accessed monochrome and color documents (PDF, TIFF & JPEG) can be stored on a web site and printed on demand at the printer. Secure walk-up printing of PDF documents can be easily accommodated by using the USB direct port and a USB flash memory device.

Standard and optional features on the Infoprint Color 1567 enhance device and document security. PIN-based printing increases confidentiality for individuals printing sensitive output. Data that is stored on the optional hard disk is encrypted. Security of transmission is addressed through secure transmission protocols.

A wide variety of media sources can be configured to meet specific customer needs including additional 550 sheet input drawers and a 3,000 sheet high capacity feeder option. The optional 1100 sheet finisher provides flexible finishing including stapling, offset stacking and hole punching.

Flexible connectivity options ensure that the Infoprint Color 1567 can be configured to adapt to a customer's existing or future infrastructure. The embedded web server and MarkVision Professional device management utility enable flexible installation and proactive device management from a desktop, server or web browser.

Print Quality

General Statement on Print Quality

The Infoprint Color 1567 will provide superior print quality and feed reliability when using paper designed for use with xerographic copiers and laser printers. 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.

Printer Default Settings

The default settings for the Infoprint Color 1567 are listed below:

Setting
---------------- ---------
Toner Darkness 4
Print Mode Color
Printer Usage Max Speed

Print Mode

Infoprint Color 1567 will support both a color and mono print mode. The default print mode will be color. In the color mode, all four photodevelopers are in contact with the belt. In the mono print mode the transport belt will be oriented so that the color supplies are not engaged while printing. In order to print using only black toner, select the Black/White check box in our driver. If a non-IBM driver is used, the default print mode must be changed to black only at the op panel or via the printer Web site. Several seconds are required to switch between these modes. Mono or color print mode will be operator selectable.

Printer Darkness Settings

The Toner Darkness setting offers five user selectable settings to balance print darkness and toner savings. The higher the setting the darker the print. Within the range of print darkness settings up to 50% toner savings can be realized from the factory default setting of 4. The Toner Darkness setting is available through the operator panel under the "Print Quality" menu. Available in PostScript and PCL/XL jobs.

Color Correction Settings

The Infoprint Color 1567 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.

Manual

Vivid CMYK

Increased color saturation for the US CMYK color correction.

Euro CMYK

Applies color correction to approximate EuroScale color output.

Display-True Black

Applies color correction to product output that approximates the colors displayed on a computer monitor. This option creates output using only black toner for all levels of neutral gray, where most other color options create gray using a composite of cyan, magenta, yellow and black toner.

Color Balance Settings

Infoprint Color 1567 offers a Color Balance Control. It is a color correction option that allows the user to increase or decrease the amount of toner going to the page individually for the cyan, magenta, yellow and black color planes. The scale adjustment is +5 to -5.

Coverage Estimator

The IBM Coverage Estimator is designed to give the user an approximation of percent coverage per color when printing a composite color document. The estimation of coverage can be used to calculate an approximate cost of any given document if yield and coverage are assumed to be inversely related. This tool should allow customers to discover for themselves that printing color documents on color LED printers is frequently an economical way to create these documents. Furthermore, they can discover that many black and white documents can be improved for a nominal increase in cost. The Coverage Estimator allows end users to estimate the percent coverage of cyan, magenta, yellow and black on one separator page for each job with average coverage information. The Coverage Estimator is available from the Op Panel under the "Utilities Menu."

The Coverage Estimator utilizes an algorithm that counts pixels for each toner color: black, cyan, magenta and yellow. Once the utility is selected, the printer overlays the percent coverage on each separator page. The printed percentages are not included in the estimate. The utility can be turned off by deselecting it from the menu or by powering off.

The Coverage Estimator is intended to only estimate the coverage on a given page. For all toner colors that are used, the minimum percentage reported will be two percent. Reported values may vary from printer to printer. The accuracy of the estimates may be affected by the fullness of the print cartridges, environmental conditions, media type, application, application settings, driver, driver settings, or the content of the page. IBM makes no claim as to the accuracy of the estimated percentages.

Color Samples

To assist users in selecting the colors to be printed, they can print color samples pages for each of the RGB and CMYK color conversion tables used in the printer. The color samples pages consist of a series of colored boxes along with the RGB or CMYK combination that creates the color observed for each particular box. These pages can be useful in helping users decide which RGB or CMYK combinations to use in their software applications to create the desired printed color output.

Color Saver Mode

Infoprint Color 1567 offers a Color Saver Mode that allows end users to print images and graphics lighter. Text will print at Toner Darkness "4," while images and graphics print at Toner Darkness '1.' The Color Saver Mode is located on the Op panel under the Color Menu and may be selected from from the IBM Custom PostScript Driver. The Color Saver feature is available in PostScript and PCL/XL jobs.

Enhance Fine Lines

In this feature, setting this option to TRUE has the effect of more faithfully representing fine detail in jobs, such as fine lines in CAD drawings. The default is false.

Fonts and Symbol Sets

Emulation # of Scalable Fonts # of Bitmapped Fonts
------------ ------------------- --------------------

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 230 deg C (446 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 1567

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 75 gsm (20 lb) 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: 90 g/m2 (24 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 LED printers may be used with the Infoprint Color 1567.

Labels

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

The printer with standard Ethernet internal and external print servers support a Resident Web page with Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or later and Netscape Navigator 4.5 or later for Windows 95/98, Windows Me, Windows 2000 or Windows NT.

IBM Host Connection Features

iSeries (formerly AS/400)

IBM iSeries with OS/400 V5R1 or later utilizing OS/400 Host Print Transform. Use Manufacturer Type and Model (MFRTYPMDL) of LEXOPTRAT** (in OS/400 Version 4 Release 2 or later), LEXOPTRAS**, or LEXOPTRA**.

Security Features

The Infoprint Color 1567 contains several standard and optional features and functions that improve or enhance the security of the device.

Secure Management with MarkVision Professional

Using the latest version of MarkVision Professional, administrators can configure and manage the Infoprint Color 1567 securely by using authenticated and encrypted network communications.

Secure Network Communications

The Infoprint Color 1567 contains support for several network protocols that increase the security of network communications.

The addition of the SSL protocol allows for secure connections to the embedded web server in the device, which protects configuration and device status messages. SSL also provides the ability to perform secure Pull Printing.

SNMPv3 support allows for encrypted and authenticated management traffic, protecting remote configuration and device status messages.

IPSec (Internet Protocol Security) can be used with both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. IPSec provides encryption and authentication of communications at the network layer.

Security Lockdown - When the adapter password has been set, an administrator can put the printer into "Security Lockdown" mode, where all insecure TCP and UDP ports are disabled (discovery and print ports remain open). TCP and UDP port numbers may also be closed individually.

Confidential Print

Using Confidential Print, a user may assign a PIN to a print job, and have the printer hold that job until the user physically arrives and enters the correct PIN. This will prevent another user from taking the printed output from the output bin.

Several enhancements have been added to Confidential Print with the release of this and concurrent models:

Job Expiration - An administrator can now configure the printer to automatically delete Confidential Print jobs after a specified amount of printer uptime. This time limit can be set to the following options: 1 hour, 4 hours, 24 hours, or 1 week.

Increased PIN Digit Support - PIN numbers can now consist of four numbers between 0-9, providing 10,000 possible PIN combinations. Previous models supported four numbers from 1-6, with 1296 possible PIN combinations.

Maximum Invalid PIN Attempts - An administrator can now configure the printer to automatically delete a Confidential Print job if the incorrect PIN number has been entered a specified number of times. This can be set to be between 2 and 10 invalid PIN attempts.

Digitally Signed Firmware Update Files

Upgraded firmware files from IBM are now signed with a digital signature, which verifies the source and authenticity of the updated code. This prevents a malicious user from creating and uploading to the printer custom code that could intercept and expose potential confidential data.

Encryption for Optional Internal Hard Disk Drives

When equipped with an optional internal hard disk drive, a printer could potentially store print job data, thus providing an avenue for a malicious user to retrieve the data. When "Disk Encryption" is enabled, a 128 bit encryption key is randomly generated and then used to encrypt all the data on the hard drive using the AES algorithm. This encryption key is unique to the printer that created it, therefore an encrypted hard drive could not be placed into another device and the data subsequently retrieved.

Operator Panel Menu Lockout

An administrator may apply a PIN number to protect the administration menus available through the printer operator panel. The following top-level menus can be protected using this feature:

  • Supplies
  • Paper
  • Reports
  • Settings
  • Security
  • Network/Ports
  • Help

Printing Lockout

When a hard disk is installed in the printer, the user has the option of locking the print device with a user defined PIN and preventing it from printing submitted jobs. All submitted print jobs will be stored on the internal hard drive until the printer is unlocked with the correct PIN. This feature will be especially useful in preventing printing after normal business hours.

Note: Disk Encryption should also be enabled when using this feature to ensure that the data is stored securely in the event that the drive is removed to defeat Printing Lockout.

IBM Infoprint Manager

Infoprint Manager support: Yes (post GA). Requires administrators to create printer objects.

Network Printer Resource Utility (NPRU)

NPRU will not support the Infoprint Color 1567.

Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe for Infoprint Color 1567

With the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe feature, you can print either host-based or client-based output on your network-attached laser printer. You can also use your printer for both network printing and for IBM eServer iSeries or mainframe jobs. Print bar codes, forms, publications, and graphics closer to your end users, giving you the associated cost and time savings from true distributed printing. Now you can direct your IBM AFP/IPDS or SCS output across the LAN using the TCP/IP protocol.

Locate your printer wherever you need it to maximize its productivity. When connected to a network, an auto-emulation sensing printer will automatically switch to the proper document language, whether it is SCS, IPDS, PostScript, or PCL.

Benefits for this feature include:

Emulation of common IBM IPDS and SCS printers such as 4028 or 3812

AFP/IPDS printing over the LAN using TCP/IP with a standard Ethernet network port

TN3270E or TN5250E SCS (LU1) printing over the LAN using TCP/IP with Telnet with a standard Ethernet network port

The Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe provides AFP/IPDS and SCS (LU1) data stream support for IBM servers. The Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe allows customers to print AFP/IPDS or SCS(LU1) documents over TCP/IP to LAN printers

IPDS is only supported for Single Byte Character Set and does not support Double Byte Character Set.

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.

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:

PDF417 2D bar code, Data Matrix, MaxiCode 2D bar code support, QR code 2D barcode
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 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

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 supported.

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 V5R2 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.

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.

Support Notes:
Microcode updates and User's Guides are available from the IBM web site.
See the appropriate User's Guide for configuration instructions.
When the printer is emulating an IBM printer, the function supported depends on the IBM host software.

For Direct Network Attachment - Hardware Compatibility
