The maximum print speeds are shown in the following table. Actual performance depends on:
Media 300, 600 dpi, 1200 IQ
Note: dpi = dots per inch.
Note: 1200IQ = 1200 Image Quality resolution.
First Copy Times are shown in the following table:
Printer Mode Time (seconds)
Note: First Copy time is defined as the elapsed time when hitting enter on the PC to the page exiting to the output bin. Paper is picked from the primary tray and paper exits to the primary output bin. Media is letter-size paper printed in 300 and 600 dpi simplex printing.
The Infoprint 1116 printable area is limited to within 4.0 mm (0.158 in.) of top, bottom, left or right edges of the media. Any information placed outside this specified printable area will not print.
The Infoprint 1116 supports the following data streams:
Fonts and Symbol Sets
There are 83 symbol sets in the PCL 6 emulation to support all the languages that use these characters. The symbol set names are listed below. Not all symbol sets are supported by all fonts. Refer to the Technical Reference manual or use the printer operator panel to find which symbol sets are supported by each font.
The infoprint 1116 will have UTF-8 code support standard. UTF-8 code is a particular way in which fonts are accessed. UTF-8 is required for SAP printing and had previously only been available in the Barcode option card. Moving this function standard in the printers allows for SAP support out of the box. UTF-8 is available for PCL and PostScript fonts.
The following table lists the number of fonts available in each emulation. The typeface names are shown below.

The fonts in the PCL emulation are compatible with the fonts in the HP4500 and include four additional fonts and many extra symbol sets to support extra languages and applications. The fonts in the PostScript emulation are compatible with Adobe PostScript 2 and include 20 additional fonts.
Additional fonts can be downloaded to the printer RAM or optional Flash DIMM or Hard Disk. PCL emulation supports both scalable and bitmapped downloadable fonts. PostScript emulation supports only downloadable scalable fonts, and PPDS emulation supports only downloadable bitmapped fonts. Font cards and font cartridges are not supported.
Included on the CD-ROM shipped with the printer are a variety of downloadable fonts for Hebrew and Arabic and additional support for the Euro currency character.
Also included on the CD-ROM is the FontVision Font Management utility and screen fonts to match the resident scalable fonts. An additional 48 TrueType fonts are available on the IBM Web site when a customer registers the printer.
Note: For all of the following font listings, font order is partially alphabetical and partially functional.
PostScript 3 Font Names - 75 Scalable Fonts

Optra Forms Features
Optra Forms Director is a Windows NT or Windows 2000 server-based program. Using o additional host software (iSeries, UNIX or Mainframe), the host application sends a print spool file to a Windows NT or 2000 print queue. Optra Forms Director service automatically pareses the print spool file into single or multiple print jobs using Microsoft Visual Basic Script or JScript methods and Named Pipes.
The spool file which may contain many individual documents is customized by separating it into individual jobs or by adding data or particular commands to the individual documents that are then sent to IP, LPR, or Windows printer destinations. The additional data or commands may be to staple, separate documents with a cover page, copy and collate, print on both sides, offset stack, fax, or hole punch each individual job. Print jobs are customized and distributed electronically to network printers automatically without making any changes to host applications.
