The Solimar® Print Director™ Enterprise (SPDE) is a set of programs designed to turn your computer into a powerful enterprise output management system. SPDE connects host computers to production printers that, under normal circumstances, cannot interface with each other. For example, SPDE can be used to connect midrange or mainframe hosts and networks to one or more printers and archive systems.
SPDE allows you to print from multiple host computers to multiple printing devices simultaneously. It can also perform multiple conversion routines on each print file. By supporting combinations of inputs, outputs, and conversions, SPDE gives you a powerful print manager that transparently connects your host systems with the production printers your company needs. As your requirements grow, you can add software modules, install additional inputs and outputs, or upgrade to take advantage of new features and capabilities.
The power of SPDE lies in its ability to interface with virtually any host or printer. Moreover, its processing control, conversion routines, and job management capabilities allow a very high degree of control over your printing environment.
