Reeve, Carl Hewitt and Gerald Sussman, Dynamic Modeling Group, MIT ca. 1971. Intended as a successor to Lisp, and a possible base for Planner-70. Basically LISP 1.5 with data types and arrays. ), in which MDL will market QMS (1) (Minolta-QMS, Inc., Mobile, AL) A manufacturer of laser printers founded in 1977 by Jim Busby. Initially involved with controllers for printing bar codes and labels, it entered the laser printer business in the mid-1980s and set numerous records. ImageServer Print Systems as part of their MARS/NT (Multi Access and Retrieval System) imaging solutions. In addition, MDL will add full support for QMS' newest product, the QMS 2425 ImageServer Print System, to MARS/NT. The MARS/NT software enables document imaging, document management, and dynamic workflow support in Macintosh and Windows NT (Windows New Technology) A 32-bit operating system from Microsoft for Intel x86 CPUs. NT is the core technology in Windows 2000 and Windows XP (see Windows). Available in separate client and server versions, it includes built-in networking and preemptive multitasking. environments. The new QMS 2425 ImageServer Print System, which features an ultra-fast 64-bit 50-MHz microprocessor and controller architecture, is ideally suited for demanding imaging applications.
"More and more users are producing increasingly complex image-rich files, often storing them in compressed formats in centrally located depositories. QMS has found that a fast document printer is a fundamental requirement of a network document imaging system and is a frequently overlooked component of the total imaging solution," said Philip Johnson See Phillip Johnson for others with a similar name
Philip Cortelyou Johnson (July 8, 1906– January 25, 2005) was an influential American architect. With his thick, round-framed glasses, Johnson was the most recognizable figure in American architecture for decades. , QMS ImageServer Product Manager. "We're pleased to be working with MDL to offer MARS/NT users integrated print systems to compliment their document imaging software. MARS users will be especially interested in the new QMS 2425 ImageServer Print System, which includes a rich set of document printing features. Users of this new system will realize higher quality output, more document handling features and very fast overall document printing speeds by our ability to directly accept and decompress To restore compressed data back to its original size.

"Micro Dynamics, Ltd. is very pleased to build upon our relationship with QMS," said Bill Newell, MDL president and CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. . "By offering support for the latest QMS ImageServer Print System, MDL continues to respond to the evolving needs of our customers for increased productivity, competitiveness and profits."
The QMS 2425 ImageServer Print System meets the needs of the most demanding network imaging applications, offering the best performance and document finishing features of any printer in its class. Utilizing a 64-bit NEC (NEC Corporation, Tokyo, www.nec.com, www.necus.com) An electronics conglomerate known in the U.S. for its monitors. In Japan, it had the lion's share of the PC market until the late 1990s (see PC 98).
NEC was founded in Tokyo in 1899 as Nippon Electric Company, Ltd. VR4300 processor and controller software, the QMS 2425 ImageServer Print System can quickly process and print TIFF, CALS (Computer-Aided Acquisition and Logistics Support) A DOD initiative for electronically capturing military documentation and linking related information. , PostScript Level 2/CCITT, and QMS high-performance CCITT See ITU.
CCITT - Commite' Consultatif International de Telegraphique et Telephonique. (International consultative committee on telecommunications and Telegraphy).
CCITT changed its name to ITU-T on 1 March 1993. Group 3 and Group 4 Image files at or near rated engine speeds. The QMS 2425 ImageServer Print System offers printer-based document finishing and page layout : options, including n-up printing (thumbnail), booklet printing, duplexing and stapling, for on-demand document printing. The QMS 2425 ImageServer Print System prints on paper sizes from postcard to ledger (11" x 17")/A3. Page layout is the part of graphic design that deals in the arrangement and style treatment of elements (content) on a page.
In addition to faster throughput, the QMS 2425 reduces network congestion by allowing compressed file formats to be sent directly from the storage device to the printer making the network much more efficient. By implementing a QMS ImageServer Print System, users can eliminate the need for a dedicated imaging PC and reduce total hardware costs dramatically. QMS offers ImageServer option kits for all Crown monochrome print systems ranging from 10-45 ppm. ImageServer Print Systems support all common image file formats Image file formats provide a standardized method of organizing and storing image data. This article deals with digital image formats used to store photographic and other image information. , including bi-level TIFF, CALS, PostScript Level 2 CCITT Group 3 and Group 4 and QMS high-performance CCITT Group 3 and Group 4 image files.
MARS/NT is the latest addition to the Micro Dynamics, Ltd. line of imaging, document management and workflow products. MARS/NT is the first fully-integrated and scalable system available on the market today that supports the Microsoft Windows NT server set. MARS/NT also provides support for industry-standard document retrieval and viewing based on the integration of imaging software developed for Microsoft Windows 95 by Wang Laboratories Inc. and MDL's Macintosh version of the viewer.
