I want to rip and print PDF files in real-time with the eZ-inkjet or Kyocera integrated into the GT controller. I just want to spool data, no readers needed, no reorder. How do I do that?
Use PDF2BMP.exe from GTUS!
I want to change the resolution so that I can print faster!
I want to do a linearization to deal with gray scales!
Once the pdf file is printed, the controller will place the PDF automatically in (PDFSERVER)D:/pdf/done that is it will be moved to the done directory.
V2.6 of PDF2BMP loads 32 records in advance, good for fast webs. V2.6 needs a license per server.
Place the PDF files you want to convert in the server1 in d:\pdf (this is then mapped as M:\ in both the controller and the inkjet) and make a directory d:\pdf\temp.
If 2 servers, place the PDF files you want to convert in the server2 in d:\pdf (this is then mapped as N:\ in both the controller and the inkjet) and make a directory d:\pdf\temp.
If you select address, you will see the same files as in above directory. When you select 1 and press the check Mark, a file with the same name but with the ending txt is generated in data/address
First you need at least 1 powerful server (i7 or more) where you want to install the program PDF2BMP. This program converts PDF pages into bitmap pages in real-time on commands received from the standard GT controller.
See elapsed time, here 2 minutes and 19 seconds for 200 pages or 85 pages per minute. Obviously, you will only be able to run 70% or around 60 pages per minute per server.
This is on my laptop. Servers should do 3-10 times faster.
Easy, the GT controller tells PDF2BMP at start, to prepare the first 64 pages. Then more as you print. You can change that to 32 by entering in d:/editorgt/user/system/arguments.txt:
inkjet0 –bufsize 32
