In traditional printing environments, clients rely on font downloads when they are not sure a given character is embedded in the printer. As printing moves to small clients, downloading may not be an option and clients have a need to know what characters are available in a given device.
There are many published named character repertoires, and a small client will not know about them all.
[RS] describes the syntax and semantics for the Semantic Model element "RepertoireSupported". The current document describes Best Practices for the use of that element, in order to maximize interoperability between client devices and printers.
The reader of this document should be familiar with the terminology and concepts in [RS].
This document captures the requirements for IPP Fax, both the transport and the document format. This document assumes that the reader is familiar with IPP 1.1.
The Print Service Interface is the set of interfaces and methods that enable a Client such as a Printer, a Mobile Device, Web Portal, or a service to set up and invoke a print job from a Print Service. The Print Service may be used to resolve and access the information to be printed.
The Multifunction Device Service Model represents an abstraction of the characteristics, capabilities, and interfaces of each of the imaging services potentially provided by a Multifunction Device (MFD), as they are accessible to an outside client. The effort to model these services as a group and the associated effort in representing these models in a MFD Semantic Model is intended to highlight the commonality in the elements of these services while preserving the distinct functions of each service. The ultimate objective is to exploit the commonality to provide a consistent interface to services that have evolved in different environments and under different circumstances, but now are typically executed in the same device and used in the same environment.
This document provides the rationale and summarizes the requirements for the modeling activity.
