IDAHO FALLS, ID /Send2Press Newswire/ — In response to growing demand for a flexible, reliable, and secure IPDS printing solution, Brooks Internet Software, Inc. has released ExcelliPrint(TM) ( Designed for users who want more choice in selecting print destinations and output types in their IPDS and AFP(TM) environments, ExcelliPrint builds on Brooks’ extensive knowledge of printing and broadens its current line of proven print software.

ExcelliPrint runs on Windows NT(R)-based computers including Windows 2000 and 2003, and AS/400(R) and mainframe IPDS users can rest assured that it supports all towers of the IPDS architecture, preserving the advanced presentation features of AFP, while allowing them to spool print data to any Windows-based printer.

With the ability to accept IPDS print requests from IBM iSeries(TM) and zSeries(R) computers over TCP/IP, the application is a drop-in replacement for any IPDS printer.

ExcelliPrint provides, among others, the following features:

  • Conversion of IPDS, AFPDS, and SCS to other formats, including PCL, JPEG, EMF, and others
  • Support for monochrome and full AFP/IPDS color printing (which enables AFP/IPDS color printing on existing non-AFP/IPDS print equipment)
  • Multiple ports listening for print requests simultaneously
  • Support for two output devices; with a single license, ExcelliPrint is able to replace two physical IPDS printers

“We’ve combined our in-depth printing knowledge with our understanding of the IPDS print community’s needs and produced ExcelliPrint,” said Dave Brooks, president of Brooks Internet Software, Inc. “In the tradition of past solutions, this application gives much greater printing control to IPDS users.”

ExcelliPrint provides AFP-to-PDF conversion abilities for easy archiving, viewing, and distribution in the ubiquitous PDF format. For organizations and IT operators, this means more accessible and usable information. And for administrators and users concerned about the safety and integrity of their environments, ExcelliPrint is built on a foundation of security and reliability, using SSL and role-based administration.

ExcelliPrint gives users a platform-independent, secure, browser-based interface where they can create new or redirect existing iSeries print devices and hold or release IPDS spooled files. Secure and reliable, convenient and efficient, ExcelliPrint effectively raises the bar for IPDS print solutions.

ExcelliPrint is an IPDS print server for Windows NT, 2000, XP, and Server 2003 platforms. It has been tested and can be used in conjunction with IBM iSeries and zSeries computers (AS/400, i5/OS, OS/390, z/OS) to receive and send Advanced Function Presentation (AFP) print jobs to any Windows-based printer or to archive the jobs in various file formats such as PDF, PCL, PNG, JPEG, and TIFF.
