The Printer Working Group recently held a face-to-face meeting on August 6-8, 2013 at Sharp‘s facilities in Camas, WA. We discussed a potential 3D printing BOF, reviewed several drafts of in-progress specifications, and set new goals and milestones for the Cloud Imaging, Internet Printing Protocol, and Semantic Model workgroups.
The PWG Last Call of the IPP Transaction-Based Printing Extensions has begun. The IPP Transaction-Based Printing Extensions specification defines an IPP extension to support monetary, quota-based, and release printing transactions. Please provide your responses prior to August 30th so that we can advance it to a formal vote.
The PWG has announced IPP Everywhere to enable printing from mobile devices without apps or vendor-specific drivers. In our previous post we talked about the advantages of allowing native printing capabilities. Users don‘t have to download apps or update them. They don’t have to create accounts or sign in. Touch “print”, choose options, and you‘re good to go.
In a previous post, we talked about how printing from mobile devices has moved from a non-starter to a somewhat more complex capability based around vendor-specific apps and with little standardization. Wondering if mobile device users really do want to print something?
The joint PWG-OpenPrinting meeting is being hosted by Apple at their facilities in Cupertino, CA from May 14-17. Topics include: printing on Linux and other platforms, Cloud-based imaging services, IPP Shared Infrastructure Extensions, IPP Everywhere self-certification, IPP Best Practices, the Transform service, mapping of job ticket formats, and printer-related security.
CUPERTINO, Calif., May 14, 2013 â€“ Users of todayâ€™s smartphones and tablets can do almost anything on these devices â€“ except print from them natively, without downloading apps or vendor-specific device drivers. Now, an industry standards group, the IEEE-ISTO Printer Working Group, has solved that problem with a new specification, IPP Everywhere.
According to a recent Forbes blog on the growing use of smartphones and tablets, “Shipments of smartphones and tablet PCs are both on the rise, with the first up 40 percent and the second nearly 100 percent this year, market research firm TrendForce forecasts.” What does that mean for printing? Does everyone with a smartphone or tablet want to give up the option to print something from the device?
The PWG Last Call of the IPP FaxOut Service has begun. The IPP FaxOut Service specification defines an IPP extension to support the PWG Semantic Model FaxOut service over IPP. Please provide your responses prior to June 7th so that we can advance it to a formal vote.
PWG Candidate Standard 5110.3-2013: PWG Common Log Format (PWG-LOG) defines a common log format for hardcopy device events that can be used with existing logging protocols such as SYSLOG. While the focus of this format is on security and auditing of devices, it also supports logging of arbitrary events such as those defined by the IPP Event Notifications and Subscriptions (RFC 3995) specification.
PWG Candidate Standard 5110.2-2013: PWG Hardcopy Device Health Assessment Network Access Protection Protocol Binding (HCD-NAP) defines the application of security policy enforcement mechanisms to imaging devices. This document specifies how the Microsoft Network Access Protection (NAP) protocol is to be used, along with the set of health assessment attributes created especially for HCDs, to allow access to such devices based upon the locally defined security policy.
