color-toner-saver

For PSF destinations, when cyan, magenta, and yellow (cmyk) are combined in a certain proportion, the result approximates black. When the color-toner-saver attribute is used, the proportion of cyan, magenta, and yellow are reduced and substituted with black toner, which reduces the amount of color toner used. This option only applies to non-cmyk PostScript (for example, RGB) for which a color rendering dictionary (CRD) is used to determine the cmyk values to use.

For CUPS destinations, enable this setting to pass to the underlying printing system the corresponding driver option which prints using a reduced amount of toner when printing out copies. Print results are lighter in density than normal. For more information, see "Mapping Attributes and Values to PPD Options" in the InfoPrint Manager for Linux: Getting Started.

Allowed Values

You can enter one of these fixed values:

Fixed Value Input Synonym
true yes
false no
For PSF actual With the color-toner-saver attribute, a value of true or yes substitutes black for common cyan, magenta, and yellow components to reduce consumption of toner and to reduce the cost per page; while a value of false or no uses the cmyk proportions specified.

For CUPS actual destinations, a value of true or yes maps the corresponding driver (PPD) option which prints using a reduced amount of toner when printing out copies.

Default Value

false

Usage Guidelines

  • For PSF, this attribute only applies to TCP/IP and Upload TCP/IP attachment types.
  • Setting color-toner-saver to True or Yes results in less vibrant process colors.
  • The color-toner-saver actual destination attribute can be used with color management resources (CMRs).
  • For PSF actual destinations, the color-toner-saver actual destination attribute can be used with color management resources (CMRs).
