GetTIFF and GetForm
This section discusses the TIFF tags supported by the
DocuSP software and the guidelines for printing TIFF files to
achieve the optimum performance.
The GetTIFF and GetForm operators provided in DocuSP
software allow the administrator to place a variety of external
objects on the page that are not supported by the native
PostScript language. These operators support TIFF files,
PostScript segments, PostScript files, EPS files and baseline
JPEG (JFIF) files.
The GetTIFF and GetForm operators take the name of the
file that contains the external object and, using the default
coordinate system, places the lower left corner of the object
in the lower left corner of the page. Then the administrator
can manipulate the object using standard PS procedures.
The GetTIFF and GetForm operators are encapsulated and
do not affect the Graphics state parameters, like color or font.
Additionally GetTIFF and GetForm execute the same
sequence of calls that are involved in Xerox Forms Caching.
If the job size is greater than 200 pages and a VIPP license
or demo license applies, then the job faults via standard
VIPPS error pages.
NOTE: The Enable Caching/Disable Caching (of Fast Forms)
selection found in the Postscript/PDF tab on the queue is not
overridden by the use of GetTIFF or GetForm.
NOTE: The Enable/Disable Accelerator cache in Preferences
activates cache for traditional PostScript jobs and does not
apply to GetTIFF or GetForm.
The DocuSP Save Feature stores TIFF images in different
orientations on the DocuTech/DocuPrint 75/90 and the
DocuTech 61XX. This is done by design to optimize
productivity and allow for the different finishing requirements
of the print engines controlled by the DocuSP software. The
following products have these options:
