Printing Files Directly From the Remote UI

You can print PDF, PS/EPS, TIFF/JPEG, or image files directly from the Remote UI, without having to open the files.
IMPORTANT
If the imagePRESS Server is installed, you cannot use the Direct Print function.

Direct Print

The Direct Print function enables you to send files directly to a printer without using a printer driver. The printer recognizes the file, and prints it. Thus, it is not necessary to open a file to print it.
To print using the Direct Print function, specify the file (PDF file or TIFF/JPEG image file) you want to print from the Remote UI. You can also specify a URL to print a PDF file directly from the Web.
The Direct Print function also supports command entry (LPR command) from the command prompt.
IMPORTANT
Optioal products are required to use Direct Print. For more information on the optional products, see "Tillvalsprodukter som krävs för varje funktion."
The touch panel display settings for use with Direct Print are 'Common Settings', 'Imaging Settings', and 'PDF Settings'. For more information on the settings for 'Common Settings', 'Imaging Settings', and 'PDF Settings', see "Funktionsinställningar: Skrivare."
Even in cases where you cannot print a file or if the print output is out of alignment using the Direct Print function, you may still be able to open the file in an application and print it using the printer driver.

Printing PDF Files Directly

To print PDF files directly from the Remote UI, perform the following procedure:
IMPORTANT
The imagePRESS Printer Kit is required to print a PDF file without opening it.
1.
Click [Direct Print] → [PDF Files].
2.
Specify the PDF file you want to print.
If you want to specify the file path, click [Browse] for <File Path>→ click [Open].

Set [Quality Settings].
[Resolution]
This setting specifies the resolution for printing.
Resolution is expressed in units of dpi (dots per inch), indicating the number of dots in one inch. The higher the value, the greater the resolution, allowing finer expression of detail.
If [600 dpi] is selected, you can perform printing suited to general documents and tables.
If [1200 dpi] is selected, characters and lines can be finely printed.
[Halftones]
This setting specifies how to express halftones.
Print data is expressed in dots. Fine gradations, edges, and shades are expressed by using dither patterns, which are groups of dots. This is called halftone processing.
If [Resolution] is selected, you can print text with distinct outlines, which is best to print text and thin lines.
If [Gradation] is selected, you can print with both smooth gradation and outlines, which is best to print graphs and graphics that use gradation.
If [Error Diffusion] is selected, it is optimal for printing text or very fine lines and for printing contours in CAD data.
[Width Adjustment]
This setting specifies whether to adjust the width of characters or lines.
You can specify the width for [Vertical] and [Horizontal].
The result of [Level 2] is wider than [Level 1]. If you cannot obtain the proper result with [Level 1], select [Level 2].
You can specify whether to adjust the width of characters or lines for all colors or only black by selecting [All] or [Black Only] in [Target Color].
This setting cannot be used with [Trapping].
[Advanced Smoothing]
This setting smoothes jagged outlines of graphics (illustrations created by application software) and characters.
[Level 2] performs a higher level of smoothing than [Level 1]. If [Level 1] is selected and the results are still not printed smoothly, select [Level 2].
By selecting for 'Apply to Graphics' and 'Apply to Text', you can select whether to apply smoothing to graphics or text data.
This setting allows you to apply smoothing to graphics data and text data. Smoothing is not applied to image data.
The setting for 'Apply to Text' is invalid if 'Resolution' is set to [1200 dpi].
"Apply to Graphics" and "Apply to Text" can only be selected when [Level 1] or [Level 2] is selected for Advanced Smoothing.
Settings for "Apply to Graphics" and "Apply to Text" on this setting will be effective only if 'Printer Default' is set for Advanced Smoothing in the printer driver.
The results of Advanced Smoothing may differ depending on the characters and graphics patterns.
[Trapping]
You can prevent image deterioration caused by misaligned images by creating overlaps between the emphasized image and the color plate that surrounds the image.
[Trapping Width]
You can specify the trapping width from 0 to 3 pixel for the left, right, top, and bottom.
[Trapping Density]
You can specify the trapping density from 0 to 100% for cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y).
If the density of the emphasized image is light, trapping will not be activated.
This setting cannot be used with [Width Adjustment].
NOTE
If you use the [Error Diffusion] mode, the stability of a fixed toner (the image quality) may decrease.
6.
Set [Color Settings].
[Color Mode]
This setting enables you to set the color mode you want to specify when printing.
If [Auto (Color/Black & White)] is selected, the machine automatically switches between the color mode and black mode according to the document type.
If [Black & White] is selected, data is printed in black (K) only, even if the original is in color.
If [Full Color] is selected, cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y), and black (K) are used.
[Matching Mode]
This setting allows you to select whether to use the ICC Profile or the Device Link Profile for the RGB/CMYK input data.
If [ICC Profile] is selected, the machine compensates for the difference between the color spaces used for the input profile (applied to the color space used for input data) and the output profile (defines device dependent color space).
If [Device Link Profile] is selected, you can directly convert the input color space to the output color space.
[RGB Source Profile]
This setting allows you to specify the RGB profile (color data represented using the RGB (Red Green Blue) color model) that is appropriate for the characteristics of your monitor. This setting is applied when printing a document containing color images or graphics made by the RGB color model.
[sRGB]

[JapanColor(Canon)]
This setting uses the JapanColor profile. This is for obtaining a printout closely matching the printing standard in Japan.
[US Web Coated(Canon)]
This setting uses the U.S. Web Coated profile. This is for obtaining a printout closely matching the printing standard in the USA.
[Euro Standard]
This setting uses the Euro Standard profile. This is for obtaining a printout closely matching the printing standard in Europe.
[None]
When this setting is selected, device dependent CMYK data is printed as is without applying the CMYK profile.
[Output Profile]
This setting allows you to define the profile that is appropriate for the data you are going to print. It is applied to all data in the print job, so make sure the selected profile is right for your job.
[Normal]
This setting prints the colors closely matching the ones displayed on your monitor.
[Photo]
This setting prints colors close to photographic prints.
[TR Normal]
This setting prints the colors closely matching the ones displayed on your monitor, and also reduces toner bleeding of text and fine lines.
[TR Photo]
This setting prints colors close to photographic prints, and also reduces toner bleeding of text and fine lines.
[Perform RGB Pure Black Processing]
This setting enables you to specify how black and gray data with the equivalent ratio of R to G to B should be processed when device dependent RGB data is converted into device dependent CMYK data using the 'RGB Source Profile' of the machine.
[Perform CMYK Pure Black Processing]
This setting enables you to specify how monochrome data (C=M=Y=0) should be printed when the device dependent CMYK data is processed using the 'CMYK Simulation Profile' of the machine.
[RGB Input (Light + ClrSpace)]
This setting enables you to perform color matching for RGB input data.
[D50 + sRGB]
This setting performs color matching to match the conditions of ambient light D50 (5,000 K) on an sRGB compatible monitor.

[Perceptual]
This setting produces the best results for photographic or bitmapped images.
[Saturation]
This setting is best suited for printing illustrations and diagrams used in business presentations.
[Colorimetric]
This setting provides a close match to the RGB color value of the machine's printing range.
[Use Grayscale Profile]
You can convert device dependent gray data into CMYK data by using the Grayscale Profile of the machine. However, the data may be reproduced using only the black (K) toner, depending upon the Pure Black Text or Output Profile.
[Pure Black Text]
This setting affects the printout for black (R=G=B=0% or C=M=Y=100%/Bk=N%) text on a page. Under most circumstances it is preferable to leave this option selected. If you enable this option, black colors generated by applications are printed using only 100% black toner. This means that the color toner will not be misaligned since only one toner color (black) is used.
[Black Overprint]
This setting allows you to choose a specific way to print black text when printing black text over a color background or graphics. If you enable this option, you can overprint black text. When this setting is used in combination with [Pure Black Text], the machine first prints the full color background, then lays the black text on the top of the color background as 100% K (black) toner. Overprinting also reduces misalignment of colors and a halo effect that can appear around the edge of the text.
[Perform Composite Overprinting]
You can overprint device-dependent CMYK data as composite output. All colors used for data are overlaid and printed on one plate so you can check the finished result without separating the colors.
[Brightness]
This setting adjusts the brightness of the overall image. The settings can be set between 85% and 115% in increments of 5%. Selecting [85%] makes the image brighter, and selecting [115%] makes it darker.
[Perform Spot Color Matching]
This setting enables you to perform spot color matching.
[Grayscale Conversion]
This setting is used to convert the color data into grayscale data.
This setting is invalid for black-and-white data.
This setting is invalid if the [Color Mode] is set to [Auto (Color/Black & White)] or [Full Color].

If the color mode is set to [Auto (Color/Black & White)], this setting is invalid.
[Matching Method]
This setting allows you to specify a method of printing when the RGB Source Profile is applied. This machine includes a color management system that provides the following color rendering styles.
[Perceptual]
This setting produces the best results for photographic or bitmapped images.
[Saturation]
This setting is best suited for printing illustrations and diagrams used in business presentations.
[Colorimetric]
This setting provides a close match to the RGB color value of the machine's printing range.
[Photo Optimizer PRO]
You can adjust the contrast, color balance, saturation, and balance for images.
This setting is invalid for black-and-white data.
If the [Color Mode] is set to [Black & White], this setting is invalid.
[Red-Eye Correction]
Detects and corrects red-eyes on photographs occurred because of the flash or electronic flash when photographing. You can also make corrections when only half of the face is shown on the photograph.
You can specify the correction level in [Red-Eye Correction Level].
If [Weak] is selected, correction level is small.
If [Standard] is selected, correction level is between 'Weak' and 'Strong'.
If [Strong] is selected, correction level is big.
[Face Brightener]
If faces in the photographs appear dark because of backlight or underexposure, you can correct the brightness of the entire image to obtain the desired brightness for faces. You can specify the correction level in [Face Brightener Level].
If [Weak] is selected, correction level is small.
If [Standard] is selected, correction level is between 'Weak' and 'Strong'.
If [Strong] is selected, correction level is big.
This setting is valid for the image with its horizontal and vertical pixels are greater than 100 pixels.
This setting is invalid for black-and-white data.
If the color mode is set to [Black & White], this setting is invalid.
The effect differs, depending on the data.
[Perform RGB Pure Black Processing]
This setting enables you to specify how black and gray data with the equivalent ratio of R to G to B should be processed when device dependent RGB data is converted into device dependent CMYK data using the 'RGB Source Profile' of the machine.
[Perform CMYK Pure Black Processing]
This setting enables you to specify how monochrome data (C=M=Y=0) should be printed when the device dependent CMYK data is processed using the 'CMYK Simulation Profile' of the machine.
[Grayscale Conversion]
You can select ways to convert color values to a grayscale value when you print color print data.
[sRGB] lets you to calculate the grayscale value by the color conversion method based on sRGB.
[NTSC] lets you to calculate the grayscale value by the color conversion method based on NTSC.
[Uniform RGB] counts the average value of the Red, Green, and Blue values as the grayscale value.This setting allows you to convert the color data into grayscale data.
This setting is invalid for black-and-white data.
This setting is valid only if the [Color Mode] is set to [Black & White].
