The local SPOOL (Simultaneous Peripheral Operation On-Line) is a BS2000 subsystem. It controls asynchronous output to printers and magnetic tapes. SPOOL is the fundamental component for the other products described below, which cannot run without it. The Spool BS2000 does not directly control the AFP printers; it transfers the corresponding print jobs to a PRISMAproductionTM server that can be described as an output management system that processes multiple-input PDLs in a very high volume environment and provides maximum production security for single or multiple printing devices operating at the highest speeds. The component that covers this function is the Router (Océ Printing Systems). The Router validates the PRINT-DOC orders given by BS2000 users, checks the availability of resources and transfers all necessary data to for printing. The print server combines the data streams with the resources, generates the IPDS data stream (Intelligent Printer Data Stream) and sends the result to the printer.
