|20140049797||PRINTING SYSTEM, A METHOD OF PRINTING A PRINT JOB, AND A PROGRAM - A printing system with at least one printer and at least two print servers is provided for printing a print job on a selected printer. The print job is stored on one of the print servers and print job information about the stored print job on the storing print server is shared between the print servers. In case of a request for print out the print job on the selected printer, the print job is sent from the storing print server to the selected printer based on the print job information.||02-20-2014|
|20130163037||JOB-PROCESSING APPARATUS AND A JOB PROCESSING METHOD - A job-processing method route a print job to one of a plurality of printers in a job-processing apparatus. Each printer has a low-power state and a powered-up state. The method comprises: determining a destination printer from print data included in the print job; determining whether or not the destination printer is in the low-power state; if the destination printer is in the low-power state, selecting at least one alternative printer; determining the state of the at least one alternative printer; and, if the alternative printer is in the powered-up state, re-routing the print job from the destination printer to the alternative printer for printing.||06-27-2013|
|20120079081||IMAGE-PROCESSING SYSTEM AND IMAGE-PROCESSING METHOD - An image-processing system comprising a peripheral device||03-29-2012|
|20120026537||ROAMING PRINTING - A method of printing a document is described. The method comprises a workstation generating and storing print job data for a document, the workstation assigning ID information to the print job data, the user inputting the assigned ID information at a chosen printing device, the printing device transmitting a print job data request signal to the workstation, and the workstation transmitting the print job data to the printing device.||02-02-2012|
|20110279861||Print management systems - A print-management system comprises a plurality of web-submission servers and a print server. Each web-submission server hosts a website configured to allow submission of print jobs to the print management system. The print server is configured to receive print jobs from the plurality of web-submission servers, process the print jobs, and send print jobs to at least one printer to be printed. The print management system is configured to add an identifier to each received print job to identify the web-submission server or website that received the print job. The print server is configured so that print jobs are processed based on the identifiers added to the print jobs.||11-17-2011|
|20100177340||Network Printing System - A network printing system includes user devices, printing devices, a print server, and a logon server. The print server includes a print queue arranged to store print jobs received from the user devices and to send stored print jobs to the printing devices. The logon server is arranged to store logon details for users of the user devices and to store printer information for the users. The print server is arranged to select a printing device to which to send a print job stored in the queue based on the printer information stored in the logon server for the user of the user device from which the print job originated.||07-15-2010|
|20100100588||MULTI-PROTOCOL PRINT CLIENT-SERVER COMMUNICATION - A method of communicating between a print client and a print server is described. The method comprises obtaining an indication of the viability of communication of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) messages from the server to the client. If the indication is that UDP messages are viable, messages are sent from the server to the client using UDP. Otherwise a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) request is made from the client to the server, that request is left open, and when the server wishes to send a message to the client, the message is sent as the response to the open HTTP request.||04-22-2010|
|20090174895||METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONTROLLING ROUTING OF PRINT JOBS - A computer-implemented method for controlling routing of print jobs, the computer-implemented method includes determining whether a print job meets at least one predetermined criteria and sending a notification based on a result of the determination.||07-09-2009|
|20090168100||PRINT-JOB DISTRIBUTION PROGRAM, A PRINTER PROGRAM AND CORRESPONDING METHODS - A computer-readable storage medium and computer-implemented method of distributing a print-job including receiving, from a printer, a request to send a print job to the printer, converting the print job from a first format to a second format, sending the print job to the printer in the second format, wherein the second format is compatible with the printer, and wherein the second format is selected from a plurality of different formats depending on the identity of the printer from which the request to send a print job was received.||07-02-2009|
|20080320390||Logon Management Software, Control Device, and Logon Management Method - A logon management software application is executed in a print control device (||12-25-2008|
|20080263229||APPARATUS FOR PROVIDING A USER INTERFACE, PERIPHERAL DEVICES, COMPUTER MEANS, METHODS OF PROVIDING A USER INTERFACE, AND PROGRAMS - There is provided an apparatus for providing a user interface comprising a peripheral device (||10-23-2008|
|20080205956||Print Control Device, Information Processing Device, Method Of Print Control Device, Method Of Information Processing Device And Computer Program - A print control device connects via a network to an information processing device that sends an instruction and data thereto. The print control device includes: a receiver for receiving from the information processing device editing information created by an editing application which edits data layout indicating printable data; and a controller for controlling the data layout based on editing information received by the receiver, wherein said data layout is displayed on an operation part of the print control device so that a user of the print control device selects one of the data to be printed by the print control device.||08-28-2008|
