    xi About this manual ™ The ColorPASS-Z5000 Color Server enables you to use your color copier as a Preface networked printer. You can use the ColorPASS-Z5000 Color Server to print final documents or to proof jobs you will later print on an offset press.

  • Page 13: How The Colorpass Works

    xiii How the ColorPASS works How the ColorPASS works The ColorPASS receives files from computers on the network, processes (RIPs) those files, and then sends them to the copier’s print engine for printing. Even with the ColorPASS installed, you can still use the copier to make copies. Windows and Mac OS computers communicate with the ColorPASS by means of a PostScript printer driver and PostScript printer description (PPD) files.
