As a high performance and reliable pre-press solution, cyanPrintIP enhances workgroup productivity with an integrated suite of services and cross-platform compatibility. The print server lets you manage the printers on your AppleTalk and Windows network and your production workflow for maximum efficiency. The server can do PostScript analysis and pre-flight check for all print jobs before printing and it can display the analysis and resource information of these jobs graphically. A load balancing protocol distributes print jobs to the fastest idle printers, while a font management utility ensures that all fonts are loaded on the job.
