In Navigator Server version 9 we made some changes to the protection system.
We are introducing control over some system devices and over options such as duplex, or file output. These new licenses can be programmed into dongles at our offices or issued via upgrade codes to previously deployed systems in the field.
Users of earlier versions will need upgrade codes to run version 9 successfully.
Each major release (version number change like 8.1 to 9.0) requires a code as well. So. In addition to these new codes, any upgrade to version 9 requires a code enabling that version of the Server.
Minor releases (8.0 to 8.3) do not require version codes.
Warning: If you upgrade from an earlier version and do not obtain and input the correct codes, your system will not output properly.
A message of solace and comfort: New systems will come licensed properly.
Inkjet devices are now divided into 3 classes, based on speed, resolution, and other factors.
- Desktop inkjet
- Production inkjet
- Industrial inkjet
We also protect our Meteor Inkjet interface separately. So if you want to run Meteor printhead drive electronics, you need the Meteor license.
PRN file and TIFF file output each have their own licensing.
Plate output (CTP) has it's own license as well.
Width, color depth, and pixel depth are all licensed too.
A special Print On Demand feature that is optional for inkjet systems carries it's own license.
This table lists the new licensable features:
|Desktop inkjet||light production desktop inkjet (e.g. Memjet Sirius)|
|Production inkjet||table top or roll fed production (e.g. HP FI-1000)|
|Industrial inkjet||high speed, high volume|
|Meteor||Meteor Inkjet printhead drive electronics support|
|PRN File output||Navigator DFE supporting PRN output for inkjet|
|TIFF File output||Navigator DFE supporting TIFF output|
|2-wide||width (# of printheads wide)|
|Extended gamut||5+ process colors|
|Multibit pixels||2-bits per pixel and above|
|Print On Demand||special mode for Read & Print applications|
