PaperCut MF

Print & Copy Output Management

PaperCut MF provides genuine cross-platform support and can operate in most networking environments. These include those that use Active Directory, Novell eDirectory, RM or LDAP for authentication with options to utilise Windows, Novell Open Enterprise (OES), Mac and Linux print servers with full pop-up messaging support on Windows, Mac, Linux and Unix clients.

To capture “off the glass” walk-up copying, PaperCut MF supports:

  • Embedded applications that run directly on a multifunctional device, enabling single sign-on using existing domain infrastructure (on selected devices).
  • Direct TCP/IP network connection with selected ITS hardware terminals, enabling user authentication and access via common card formats including: magnetic stripe ("swipe") cards, proximity cards, barcode cards and smart cards.
