A seamless print conversion solution that fits your unique environment.

Leverage your existing print investments

IPDSXpress™ is a cost-effective, software-only IPDS Printer Server product, which can be installed in a matter of minutes on a Microsoft Windows system. This product can convert Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) into a format supported by Windows print drivers. It leverages your investment in IBM’s AFP/IPDS application technology by offering a much broader group of printing choices than those provided through hardware solutions such as embedded cards and conversion boxes.
