The InfoPrint 5000 uses piezo-electric drop-on-demand inkjet technology with water-based pigment inks that are designed to resist fading and smearing.
The InfoPrint 5000 receives AFP print jobs from RICOH print servers. When used as part of a full AFP color management system, the InfoPrint 5000 can receive color conversion, link, and tone transfer curve CMRs and apply them to print jobs. Because the printer engine applies its own halftones, it does not support halftone CMRs.
The InfoPrint 5000 can capture resources and store them in a repository in its controller so they can be reused in other print jobs. The printer only captures resources that are marked non-private and capturable using an application such as AFP Resource Installer.
You can also submit PostScript and Portable Document Format (PDF) jobs to hot folders on the InfoPrint 5000, but those print jobs are not processed using AFP color management.
