The HostCom is an external high performance interface for laser printers providing full support for all types of distributed printing from IBM mainframe or AS/400 systems. All major laser printer manufacturers are supported.

The advanced SCS features include barcode generation, font and paper tray selection as well as support for multiple transparent formats. With the additional IPDS feature installed, i-data HostCom handles both AFP/IPDS and SCS data streams. The IPDS feature supports all AFP/IPDS functions, including Downloaded Fonts, Graphics, Images, Duplex, Colour and DBCS fonts. Low resolution IPDS printing resources are automatically scaled to 300 dpi using a high quality algorithm.

Easy installation is provided by automatic configuration of key printer functions and local configuration via Windows based setup program. Remote configuration and firmware download from IBM systems provide an efficient method of managing large, distributed printer installations with minimal cost.

The i-data interface provides direct S/370-390 coax, IBM AS/400 twinax connection and a parallel PC connection without effecting the printer's normal operation.
