The Splash Server application... This true Adobe PostScript CPSI software (Configurable PostScript Interpreter Raster Image Processor) converts Level 1 and Level 2 PostScript code into a pixel-by-pixel page description that the printer/copier uses to print an image... The open platform Macintosh architecture allows you to use virtually all commercially available Macintosh hardware and software applications with Splash, including color management systems and a variety of media input devices...

Direct IPX printing... Provides an easy way for computers connected to a Novell Netware server to print to Splash... You do not need to install AppleTalk connection software... Splash creates a native Novell IPX connection from the Splash Server to the Novell server... Once set up and activated, it operates automatically to send print jobs to the Splash Server each time a Novell client computer prints to the Splash print queue on the Novell Netware server... Splash IPX printing is simple to set up and supports all Novell Ethernet frame types... See the chapter Setting Up TCP/IP and NetWare Direct Printing to Splash in the Splash Reference on-line manual for more information...

Save as TIFF... This feature allows designers to send a file to the Splash Serverand then to view a bitmap of the processed filewithout leaving their workstations... Combined with separations support, this allows a designer to view overprint and trapping effects during the design process, without the need to actually make a print and go to the printer/copier to retrieve it... Most DTP applications do not allow these effects to be viewed directly on the screen in the application... This can significantly increase productivity during the design process...

Page 10

Splash ColorCal... Software that calibrates Splash for consistent, accurate color, regardless of changes in the copiers color output that occur over time and with changes in the environment... Splash ColorCal is a powerful tool for the professional color image designer, but it is useful also for anyone who creates business graphics or other less-technical color documents... Splash ColorCal requires no special color knowledge and does not require the use of an expensive densitometer... Splash ColorCal allows you to create and use your own CMYK color profiles... See the chapter Calibrating With Splash ColorCal in the Splash Reference on-line manual for more information...

Page 11

In addition to these requirements, you must provide networking hardware and software for all client workstations that will print to the Splash Server... Refer to the instructions provided with your network products for instructions on how to connect the Splash Server and client workstations to the network...

Page 12

IMPORTANT: All of the sections and procedures that appear in this manual assume that the Xerox printer/copier has been correctly installed, and is currently functioning as a copier... In addition, the Xerox IFU Port Kit, part number 98K32870, must be installed in the Xerox MajestiK, Regal, DocuColor 5750, or DocuColor 5799 series copier by a Xerox Service Representative... The IFU Port Kit provides the connection port necessary for the Splash Server...

Page 13

In certain geographical areas, such as the Asia/Pacific region, the printer/copier is sold as the Xerox Acolor printer/copier... In other areas, the printer/copier is sold as the Xerox MajestiK, Regal, or DocuColor printer/copier... The hardware and soft- ware described in this manual are compatible with and operate in the same way on either printer/copier... The MajestiK, the Regal, the DocuColor, and the Acolor are all referred to as the printer/copier throughout the Splash Server manuals...

Page 14

Client workstations need to install the Splash printer driver software to apply the Splash printing features (such as color correction) to print jobs... Splash provides custom client print drivers for Macintosh and PC workstations...

Page 15

5... If Splash Color Correction is enabled, the Splash Server application corrects the color of the printed output to match the screen image of the selected display type or to match the standard process ink colors used by commercial printing presses... If both RGB and CMYK colors are present in the same document, Splash color corrects separately for both color types...

While your computer might appear slightly different from those illustrated on the following pages, the steps for opening the case and installing the card are nearly identical for all computers... Please refer to the manuals provided with your computer for more model-specific information about how to remove the cover and install add-on cards...

Page 18

Discharging Static Electricity Before you remove the Splash Interface card from its antistatic bag, you must put on the 3M Disposable Grounding Wrist Strap... The wrist strap is provided to control static electricity as you install the provided Memory DIMMs on the Splash card, and as you install the Splash card in the Power Macintosh... Failure to wear the wrist strap can result in damage to the card or to your computer...

Page 19

Locate the metal Xerox asset tag provided in the Splash Accessory Kit... Attach the asset tag to the left side of the Power Macintosh, in the upper-left corner... This tag is provided for future reference, if you should require customer support from Xerox... You must provide the asset tag number to receive Customer Support...

Align the gold fingered PCI connector on the board with the PCI slot, then firmly but carefully press down on the top edge of the Splash board until the PCI connector firmly seats in the expansion slot... The connector on the Splash board should be visible through the access port...

Page 22

7... Replace the cover on the computer... Lower the cover onto the computer, leaving a two-inch gap between the back panel of the computer and the back edge of the cover... Push the cover toward the back of the computer until it snaps into place...

Page 23

Splash Key The Splash Key is a hardware device that connects to the ADB port on your computer... The Splash Key prevents unauthorized use of the Splash Server software and also provides maximum security by locking the Splash Server application when the key is removed...

Page 24

The Splash Server application runs normally when the Splash Key is connected to the keyboard cable... To prevent unauthorized printing, remove the Splash Key from the keyboard cable... This locks the Splash Server application until the Splash Key is replaced on the keyboard cable...

Page 25

Splash Servers require at least 50 MB of free hard disk space; Macintosh Client machines require at least 5 MB of free hard disk space; Windows Client machines require at least 2 MB of free hard disk space... We recommend that you install the software on the startup disk of the Splash Server if the hard disk has sufficient space available... Be sure that slash characters (/) do not appear in the hard disk name or any folder names in the path of the Splash folder... If a slash appears, the Splash Server application will not start...

Page 26

If the startup disk has insufficient space, you can install the Splash Server application on a second hard disk... To do this, perform two Custom Installations... During the first Custom Installation, install the appropriate files, except the Splash Server application, on your startup disk... During the second Custom Installation, install the Splash Server application on your second hard disk... (See page 27 for Custom Installation instructions... Refer to the Splash Reference on-line manual on for a list of files to install... )

If you have more than one hard disk on your system, click the Switch Disk button until your intended location for the files appears in the dialog box...

Page 29

You can configure the Splash Server CPU to let client workstations install their own Splash client software over the network... This way, the network administrator does not have to install client software at each client computer... (PC clients that are unable to connect to Apple File Sharing, such as Novell NetWare clients, must install the Splash client software with the install disks provided with your Splash Server... ) To set up the Splash Server for network installs:

Page 31

This chapter describes how to set up the Splash Server for local and client printing, and how to configure your Splash Server for best printing performance...

Page 32

2... Enter your name, the name of your company, and the serial number for the Splash Server software... The serial number is located on the back side of the Splash CD-ROM jewel case... Look for a number with the SMT prefix... All alpha and number characters must be entered...

Page 33

5... To complete setup for the Splash Server, choose Preferences from the Server menu... The Splash Server Preferences appear...

Page 34

To cause the Splash Server application to open automatically each time you start up the Splash Server CPU, create an alias for the Splash Server application (select the Splash Server icon and press Command-M) and place it in the Startup Items folder in the Splash Server CPU System folder...

Page 35

Installing the Splash Plug-Ins for Adobe Photoshop Your Splash Server provides plug-in software for use with Adobe Photoshop 3... 0 or later... The Splash Acquire plug-in allows you to use the Xerox or Fuji Xerox printer/ copier as a scanner... The plug-in adds the command, Splash Acquire to the Acquire submenu in Adobe Photoshop... When you choose the Splash Acquire command, Splash scans the image that is placed on the printer/copier platen... You can apply color correction to the scanned image, crop, rotate, and set the resolution for the image, then save it as an Adobe Photoshop file...

Page 36

The Splash Acquire and Export plug-ins are located in the Splash Folder on the Splash Server... Open the Splash Extras folder, then open the Photoshop Plug-in folder to find the Splash Acquire and Splash Export plug-ins... To install the plug-ins move them to the folder where your other Adobe Photoshop plug-ins are located... Usually, this is the Acquire/Export folder within the Plug-ins folder... However, if you used the Preferences command in Adobe Photoshop to move your plug-ins to a different folder, drag the Splash plug-ins to this new folder...

Page 37

IMPORTANT: Before turning off the Energy Saver extension be sure to set the Put the system to sleep whenever its inactive setting to NEVER... If not, the server will cycle down during idle time, and will not wake until someone presses a key or clicks the mouse button...

Page 38

If the Print and Save option is selected in the printer driver, the print job spool file is placed in the Hold queue on the Splash Server after it prints... If the Send and Hold option is selected in the printer driver, the print job spool file is sent to the Hold queue on the Splash Server but the job does not print...

Page 39

Use the Adobe Photoshop file format for scanned images... Adobe Photoshop provides the capability of saving scanned images in a variety of file formats... The Photoshop file format is the most compact of the available formats, and the difference can be significant... For example, a scanned image saved in the TIFF file format may be ten times the size of the same image saved in the Photoshop file format... The Adobe Photoshop file format retains complete compatibility with the Sample Image feature of Color Central...

Page 40

When choosing the size of an external hard disk drive, consider the network printing demands of the Splash Server... For example, if the network has 10 users who commonly print Adobe Photoshop files that are 30MB in size, the result is 300MB of storage space that is in constant use for print spooling... In this case, a 500MB hard disk drive is the minimum size required for a disk upgrade...

Page 41

Once you have connected a suitable hard disk drive to the Splash Server, you must transfer the Splash Server files to the new drive... If you have the optional Color Central Lite application, transfer this also to the new drive...

Page 42

As shipped by Adobe, the Adobe Photoshop memory partition is set to 13 MB... For optimum performance, RAM available to Adobe Photoshop should be three times the size of the image file... For example, when working with a 10MB image file, Adobe Photoshop should have 30MB of RAM available... If there is not sufficient RAM available, Photoshop will temporarily store the color image data on the hard disk drive instead of RAM... This reduces performance for Adobe Photoshop when used for image processing...

Page 43

Splash Server On-Line Manuals Electronic versions of the manuals for the Splash Server are provided on the Splash Server software CD-ROM... The documentation files are located in the folder named Splash On-Line Documentation... All files are in Adobe Acrobat format, and can be reviewed or printed using the Acrobat Reader application on your client Macintosh or Windows machine...
