Print jobs are transmitted at the highest levels of compression and optimized for the available bandwidth. ThinPrint’s industry-leading compression rates ensure that amounts of print data transmitted are kept to minimum without any impact on quality. Thanks to connection-oriented bandwidth management, you always have full control over how much bandwidth you want to allocate for the print data stream. In addition, SpeedCache and streaming ensure printouts are delivered rapidly.
“For us as a service provider, system reliability is the deciding factor. Our customers rightly demand stable applications together with fast and reliable printing. With ThinPrint, both these things work excellently, even with large print jobs.”
Heimon Hinze , Dr. Netik & Partner GmbH
ThinPrint also guarantees the highest levels of security when printing. Print jobs are transmitted securely thanks to SSL encryption, ensuring even confidential documents are fully protected. In addition, you can offer your customers user-authenticated pull printing. ThinPrint’s Personal Printing solution only allows the user to collect a print job once he authenticates directly at the printer – for example via a mobile device. Should emergencies occur resulting in the loss of print servers, then they can be very quickly and to a large extent, automatically restored, thanks to ThinPrint (disaster recovery).
ThinPrint is always the right solution – regardless of whether you provide applications or desktops based on Microsoft Remote Desktop Services/VDI or additionally with Citrix or VMware technology, whether you or your customers are also using print servers, and whether printing via RDP, ICA/HDX, PCoIP or TCP/IP to network or local printers. If required, the solution even creates a print tunnel from the client side in order to print in masked networks or integrates external print streams (e.g. from a SAP Unix server) into the virtual channel as well as many more options.
ThinPrint allows printing in all its diversity, regardless of whether your customers use Windows PCs, Macs, laptops, thin/zero clients, tablets or smartphones. Thanks to the ThinPrint Mobile Print feature, customers can even print with iPhones and iPads from Windows sessions. ThinPrint also fully supports all 32 bit/64 bit mixed environments.
“For our customers, frequent and large print jobs are business critical. We are pleased that as a cloud provider we can offer fast and reliable printing thanks to ThinPrint. Additionally, the solution fully meets all of our needs when it comes to flexibility and security.”
Philipp Reif, S&U Software
