MPI Tech offers a set of Transform tools that standardize the outputs from IBM Host systems (System Z & Power Systems) and convert them to the format of choice for printing, mailing, or archiving.
Multiple platform conversions
MPI Tech has proven expertise in the area of print format transforms. The solutions can be installed on most existing operating systems.
Mainframe, IBM Z, and z/OS Conversions
Our dedicated Mainframe software suite consists of ACM (AFP Conversion Module), EPM (Enterprise Print Manager), and PSS (Print SubSystem). All of these applications run on z/OS and are capable of exporting the output stream to other platforms in a variety of digital or printable formats.
Linux and System Z conversions
DocOut converts AFP/IPDS streams from a System Z Linux partition
Conversions on Windows, Linux, and AIX,
Our BlueServer, DocOut, AFP FastParser, ParserForWeb, and Spool2Print conversion solutions run on Windows, AIX, and Linux, and transform AFP and IPDS to any output format at the fastest speed on the market.
Input / Output Formats
The primary objective of the transform suite developed by MPI Tech is to convert data streams generated by IBM systems to more generic output formats, such as TIFF, BMP, PDF for digital processing, or PCL or PostScript for printing. However, the flexibility of our solutions allows us to transform a large number of formats:
- AFP – Advanced Function Presentation
- AFPDS – Offline mode
- AFP/IPDS – Online mode – Intelligent Printing Data Stream
- PDF – Portable Document Format and PDF/A
- Image (TIFF, BMP…)
