Connecting ODD-A to the Océ CPS800/900-How to Configure Océ Document Designer Advanced for Printing on Océ Color Production Systems

Start by defining the output by selecting an ODD-A output Engine, which is basically the PDL selection (PostScript, PDF, IPDS etc.). The Océ CPS800/900 supports Adobe PostScript2 and 3, Creo VPS, PDF and PPML.

Each output language comes with its own settings. Depending on the engine chosen, these settings can be changed in the engine configuration, and with some engines this can also be done in the printer configuration.

The Engine config profile is used to fine-tune the output with settings related to the PDL itself (e.g. optimise output for portability or file size).

In Printer config profile, you can define job settings related to specific printer functions (e.g. based on an imported PPD file for a PS output engine).

Finally, the Driver config profile can be defined. This specifies the communication mechanism to the printer.

2.2 Which Output Language Should I Use?

Adobe PostScript3 (PS3) is currently the output language best suited for printing one-off jobs on the Océ CPS800/900. This offers optimum support for media selection, finishing etc. PS3 is optimised for object reuse when you enable cached images in the advanced settings.
