Our members include printer and multi-function device manufacturers, print server developers, operating system providers, print management application developers, and industry experts. We make printers, multi-function devices, and the applications and operating systems supporting them work together better.
The PWG Last Call of the IPP Everywhere Printer Self-Certification Manual 1.0 (SELFCERT) specification has begun. This document defines IPP Everywhere Printer self-certification test procedures and the process required for PWG Members to register the test results on the PWG web site in order to use the “IPP Everywhere” logo.
The PWG is investigating standardization of 3D printing using IPP and standard formats.
Print to any network or USB printer without using special software from the manufacturer.
Support multiple network protocols and job ticket formats using our abstract model.
PWG Standards define all of the common network protocols used by your printer.
The Printer Working Group recently held a virtual face-to-face meeting on November 3-4, 2015. We discussed current and future liaison‘s with other standards groups and reviewed several drafts of in-progress specifications.
PWG Standard 5100.12-2015: IPP 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2 has been approved. This specification defines the IPP 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2 protocol versions. Each version defines a minimum set of supported IPP extensions to simplify development and interoperability of IPP Client and Printer implementations.
The PWG Formal Vote to raise the IPP 2.0, 2.1, and 2.2 specification to full standard is now underway. The voting period ends October 30, 2015.
PWG Candidate Standard 5100.19-2015: IPP Implementor‘s Guide v2.0 (IG) has been approved. This document updates and extends “Internet Printing Protocol/1.1: Implementor’s Guide” (RFC 3196) for all IPP protocol versions.
A “virtual” face-to-face meeting will be held via WebEx on November 3 and 4, 2015. Topics will include 3D printing, common criteria protection profiles for MFDs, the JDF mapping to the PWG Job Ticket, and the IPP System Service.
