Group Logic Announces ExtremeZ-IP Print Server 4.0Improved print server for integrating Macintosh and Windows platforms (October 11, 2004)
Group Logic, developer of best-selling network workflow software products, announced today an upgraded, stand-alone version of its ExtremeZ-IP Print Server software product. Available to customers later in the year, this major upgrade allows customers to utilize ExtremeZ-IP Print Server 4.0 both in conjunction with and independently of its ExtremeZ-IP File Server Product. Fully compatible with Apples Mac OS X, ExtremeZ-IP Print Server allows Mac and Windows clients to print via TCP/IP to printers and other PostScript devices.
The 4.0 stand-alone print server product offers users a number of new features:
- Support for Apple Remote Desktop allows automated distribution and installation of the ExtremeZ-IP Print Server Mac OS X client to the entire enterprise.
- Multiple print queue management permits administrators to manage several print queues at one time, and change the order of jobs within the queues.
- Additional features eases administration by sharing Windows print servers to Macs and provides detailed logging of print jobs, Rendezvous support, and Mac OS 9 support of Apple LaserWriter and Adobe PS printers.
"Many of the features in this upgrade are a direct response to customer requests," notes Derick Naef, COO of Group Logic. "We have redesigned the software to bring further compatibility between Mac OS and Windows print servers, while giving customers greater flexibility for implementation and improving administrative management functionality."
ExtremeZ-IP Print Server 4.0 provides compatibility with Mac OS 9 and seamless integration with the Mac OS X printing architecture. This compatibility allows users who operate Mac OS X and Windows print servers to completely remove AppleTalk from their network. Mac clients spool PostScript print jobs using the TCP/IP protocol to printers and other devices managed by Windows 2003/2000/XP/NT servers. Print jobs are then delivered to printers and PostScript processing applications. With ExtremeZ-IP Print Server, Mac users gain speed and efficiencies of TCP/IP, while gaining support of the latest Apple technologies through their Windows print server.
The 4.0 ExtremeZ-IP Print Server Software will begin shipping later this year, and can be purchased by contacting Group Logic at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling +1.703.528.1555 / 800.476.8781.
