From what I’ve seen, IPDS is available for most laser office level laser printers. HOWEVER, I don’t know of any that have IPDS as a default option. For all the printers we have, we needed to purchase an additional option chip. After that, the printer will accept IPDS print streams. You’ll want to contact your preferred printer supplier to talk about what printers can accept an IPDS expansion. (expect the expansion to be a bit pricy)
IPDS isn’t usually available for desktop printers, maybe 50% of the larger networked office printers will have limited IPDS support. Try software, it’s easy, quick and will allow you to print IPDS to any printer, IPDS capable or not.
Try excelliprint by Brooks. MPI makes a DIMM but most of our customers want centralized management and don’t want to have the headaches that additional hardware brings to the table. We always recommend software for IPDS to desktop/office printers. You can try their <a href=”http://ipds.brooksnet.com”>IPDS printing software</a> free. Give their tech’s a ring if you ever have issues or setup questions, they’ve been great in helping our clients over the past few years.
