Pharos Uniprint 8.3
2 What is new in Uniprint The announcement of Pharos Uniprint v8.3 and MobilePrint v1.2 for Uniprint will happen on June 28th Highlighted new features Support for the new Pharos MobilePrint solution, which enables users to print from any mobile device to any Pharos managed printer within the campus. Modified Print Engine. The new Print Server job management engine has introduced the following changes. The new Print Groups concept streamlines the configuration of large groups of printers particularly in multiple server environments. It removes the need for Compatible Queues. Improved performance and stability by reducing the dependency on the Windows spooler and its driver management. While Windows queues are still used as a mechanism to receive print jobs from users, output devices no longer require a Windows printer object. Jobs waiting to be released by the user are no longer held in the Windows printer object. They are transferred from the Windows spooler to the Uniprint Secure Release Service. Maximum Job holding time has been increased from 2 days to 7 days. (continued on the next page)
3 What is new in Uniprint Revised Administrative permissions. While a Uniprint Print Server component still exists and is still installed on each print server, the Print Server concept plays a less central role in the configuration of the Uniprint system (e.g. the server is only important to Queues and Terminals, but not to Print Groups or Devices). Given this, Administrative Permissions now introduces the concept of a Management Zone. Each object in Uniprint belongs to a zone; you simply create administrative roles that have different levels of permissions to view, modify, create, or delete objects in the different zones. The Zone functionality allows you to easily delegate administrative duties to different departments (e.g. to manage their own devices) even when they are sharing the same server resource. Strong Passwords for User Accounts. You can now enforce strong passwords for User Accounts. The following highlights the key new administration features: A new Insert Assistant wizard, which streamlines the process of adding a new device. This guides you through all the steps in creating an operational device in one simple workflow. Added a mechanism to check the status of a device before sending jobs to it. Added the capability to print a test page from a device within Pharos Administrator. Allows saving the spool files of specific print jobs from Pharos Administrator. Automatic retrieval of the Make and Model properties of devices using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). A new action has also been added to retrieve these properties manually. Objects in the Overview context are now grouped according to type. A new panel has been added to the Job Management context, which retrieves jobs based on the username of the one who sent the job and/or the Print Group that it was sent to. Also, Introducing the Pharos Credit Card Gateway which allows a campus to let users add funds directly to their Uniprint account using a credit card.

7 Mobile Print: Benefits and How it works Students and faculty submit a job via e-mail from any device on or off campus. Job remains in held print queue until authentication at device. After which, their job is sent to the held print queue. First time mobile print users must register themselves for validation. Job is sent to held print queue. User receives ready for printing e-mail message. No driver downloads needed. Ease of billing when desired. High level of document fidelity. Same superior document security. High availability and scalability for institutions of any size.
What else should I know about Uniprint 8.3? Mobile users can print! Administrators learn device status with State Checks. Server reboot is almost instantaneous Admins can be assigned their own unique area/building User experience with compatible devices is improved Jobs can be held up to 7 days before deletion.
