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?
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.
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.
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?
PWG Candidate Standard 5110.1-2013: PWG Hardcopy Device Health Assessment Attributes defines a set of attributes for Hardcopy Devices (HCDs) that may be used in the various network health assessment protocols to measure the fitness of a HCD to attach to the network.
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.
