A Scalable Media Processor Based Image Data Path for the Xerox DocuSP Platform
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.2003.19.1.art00010_2  Published OnlineJanuary 2003

The Xerox Document Services Platform (DocuSP) is the Xerox Digital Front End platform for production products. DocuSP supports over 26 different production engines that include monochrome, color, cut sheet, and continuous feed products. In particular DocuSP is one of the Digital Front Ends for the Xerox iGen3 Digital Press. This talk will describe some unique technologies in the DocuSP DFE that enable high performance printing at 100 pages per minute in full color. Unique to this controller is the concept of a scalable performance, “soft” image data path, implemented in array of low cost media processors from Equator Technologies that provide the image processing required for full performance printing on iGen3. This allows DocuSP to be an agile platform to support new imaging features without the overhead of lengthy hardware development.
