The Joint European Printer Server (JEPS) project was intended to be the basis for developing the necessary technologies needed to meet the competitive requirements of the medium- to high-speed printer market in the 1990s. It is also intended to promote standards in the area of interfaces and protocols suitable for high-performance multicolour printers, and to accelerate, by up to two years, the release of new products that will constitute the cornerstone of the new generation of mid-range printers.
The PREJEPS project is focused on the specifications and preliminary studies of a printer server, to be inserted in various systems and network environments, capable of driving several different existing or new printers.
This server includes a printer server itself, an adaptable printer imager, and two printer devices based on two different technologies developed in Europe.
These technologies had already proved their feasibility in different speed ranges:
The adaptable imager study covered the requirements of a family of printer engines, starting with the two mentioned above and followed by engines characterised by adaptability in the 20-100 ppm speed range and up to 600 dpi resolution with colour and grey-scale capability.
PREJEPS established the basis for the JEPS programme, which has not yet started.
