2 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 2 Who is the Printer Working Group? Companies interested in improving the market for imaging-related products Members understand that developing standards is a necessary part of achieving this goal Not just printer vendors: Multi-function device manufacturers Print server developers Operating system providers Print management application developers

3 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 3 PWG Members

4 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 4 PWG Goal We are chartered to make printers multi-function devices applications and operating systems that support them … work together better

5 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 5 Printer Working Group - History PWG name adopted in 1993 Early projects with IEEE and IETF IEEE 1284.x series of standards providing status, configuration, communication and control over IEEE 1284 parallel port Standard Printer MIB RFC-1759 (IETF) based on ISO Document Printing Application (DPA) In 1999, organized under IEEE-ISTO Industry Standards and Technology Organization Affiliated with IEEE Standards Association Formalized organizational procedures, processes

6 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 6 Affiliations and Liaisons Multiple activities achieved via collaboration with other organizations and standards groups IETF - Printer MIBv2, Finisher MIB, Internet Printing Protocol (IPP), IPP Extensions W3C - XHTML-Print, CSS-Print Profile CIP4 - Job Definition Format (JDF) Bluetooth - Print Profile DMTF - Printer Class, Printer Service Class

10 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 10 Proven Activity PWG has produced or been involved in many of the standards used by electronic printing industry Developed standards in the following areas: Device management (Printer MIB, Finisher MIB etc.) Hardware level interface (IEEE 1284) Transport layer interface (IEEE ) Datastream standards (XHTML-Print) Application layer print/scan and management protocol standards (IPP, PSI, etc.) Standardized model of printer services consistent with ISO – DPA used by virtually all current print protocols over multiple interfaces and operating systems

11 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 11 Some PWG Candidate Standards Common Semantic Model Print Services Interface IPP Fax Media Standardized Names XHTLM-Print, CSS-Print (migrated to W3C) PDF/is (developed in conjunction with Adobe) Port Monitor MIB (developed in conjunction with Microsoft) Web-based Imaging Management Service Imaging System Counter MIB

12 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 12 Current Working Groups Imaging Device Security (IDS) Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) Multifunction Device (MFD) Workgroup for Imaging Management Solutions (WIMS)

13 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 13 Imaging Device Security (IDS) Addressing the assessment of the health of devices before allowing them to access the network Defining a standard set of metrics that can be measured or assessed in Hardcopy Devices to gauge if they should be granted access to a network Defining example bindings for how these metrics are used in individual network assessment protocols Microsoft Network Access Protocol (NAP) IETF Network Endpoint Assessment (NEA)

14 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 14 Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) IPP Job and Printer Operations Set2 (JPS2) Extends IPP Production Printing Set 1 Resubmit-Job, Cancel-Jobs, Cancel-My-Jobs, job save, proof print, etc. IPP Version 2.0 Organizes optional features into compliance levels First edition defines IPP/2.0 and IPP/2.1 Future edition will define IPP/2.2 IPP Printer State Extensions (PSX) IPP Printer/Finisher alerts IPP Everywhere Birds of a Feather kick-off in February Cross-platform printing support for all IPP/2.0 printers Print from any Client to any Printer, without vendor-supplied printer drivers

15 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 15 Multifunction Device (MFD) Modeling of imaging services and subunits that comprise a network connected MFD Standard semantic definition for Subunits, Services, Jobs, Documents, Operations, etc. XML schema used for data modeling Service elements include: Print Scan Resource Copy Fax Transform

16 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 16 Workgroup for Imaging Management Solutions (WIMS) Supporting the remote management of Hardcopy Imaging devices Mapping into standard management semantics and protocols, e.g., SNMP, DMTF/CIM, and Web Services Management Aligning DMTF/CIM classes with PWG MFD Model Support and update of the printer-related MIB documents Printer MIB, Finisher MIB, Counter MIB Power Management MIB

All rights reserved. 17 List of Standards (1) IEEE : Transport Independent Printer/System Interface protocol for returning printer configuration and status IEEE : Standard for Test, Measurement and Conformance to IEEE 1284 (not approved) IEEE : Interface and Protocol Extensions to IEEE Compliant Peripherals and Host Adapters protocol to allow sharing of the parallel port by multiple peripherals (daisy chaining) IEEE : Data Delivery and Logical Channels for IEEE 1284 Interfaces protocol to allow a device to carry on multiple, concurrent exchanges of data IETF Printer MIB v1, RFC 1759, March 1995 based on ISO IETF Job Monitoring MIB, RFC 2707, November 1999 based on ISO IETF Internet Printing Protocol v1.1, RFC , September 2000 Encoding and Transport (RFC 2910) Model and Semantics (RFC 2911) based on ISO IETF IPP URL Scheme, RFC 3510, April 2003 based on RFC 2911

18 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 18 List of Standards (2) PWG IPP Document Object, PWG , October 2003 based on ISO PWG IPP Job Extensions, PWG , October 2003 based on ISO PWG Semantic Model v1.0, PWG , January 2004 based on RFC 2911 and ISO includes PWG Print Job Ticket in XML Schema PWG PDF Image-Streamable (PDF/is), PWG , March 2004 developed in collaboration with Adobe IETF Printer MIB v2, RFC 3805, June 2004 based on ISO IETF Finisher MIB v1, RFC 3806, June 2004 based on ISO IETF IPP Job and Printer Admin Operations, RFC 3998, March 2005 based on ISO PWG Internet Printing Protocol v2.0, PWG , July 2009 based on many IETF and PWG standards extending IPP/1.1

19 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 19 Common interest with SC28 Office Equipment Standards development Printers Multifunction devices Imaging Services ISO Document Printing Application (DPA) is the basis of our work

20 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 20 Benefits to SC28 PWG has a strong heritage of developing imaging systems management and services standards Recognition within the industry PWG standards are normatively referenced by several other imaging system public standards CIP4 Job Definition Format Bluetooth Print Profiles UPnP Enhanced Print Linux Foundation Open Printing Job Ticket API PWG can readily provide significant imaging system expertise on work activity within SC28 Opportunity of considering PWG body of work for adoption as SC28 standards

21 Copyright © 2009, Printer Working Group. All rights reserved. 21 Summary Liaison status for PWG would create an opportunity to develop a more synergistic relationship with JTC1/SC28 … to the benefit of imaging systems and office equipment standardization
