Data transforms receive print jobs from RICOH ProcessDirector and transform the data from one data stream to another so that it can be printed.
You can purchase RICOH ProcessDirector features that are used to transform jobs from one datastream to another. You can also purchase external programs and connect them to RICOH ProcessDirector.

When you send jobs with image files included in AFP object containers, you must install an input data stream transform to process them correctly. For example, for AFP files containing images, you must use the InputImage transform. When installed, the InputImage transform automatically handles images in these formats.
|When you order the Advanced Transform feature, you choose the input data stream and
output data stream transforms that you need. Then, you can combine them as needed.
For example, if you choose the InputAFP, InputPS, the OutputPDF, and the OutputPCL transforms, you can convert:
