I need info on the Xerox Fiery adapter. Its on a xerox workcentre 78xx series (I think)
What is the "Fiery" needed to do that a normal driver can't. I have never dealt with these before and my friend is complaining its slow and wants me to see what I can do. She says it slows down thier machine just by being there. (haven't we all heard that before) Even they don't know what its for, it was just "part" of the machine and the vendor said it was required. I'll get with them tomorrow but I'm looking for unbiased opinion here.
They use this printer to print color bulletins, maybe 1500 at a time, not photos or fine art.
On the other hand, if colour matching is not that important to you, it is possible that your printer also has a built-in RIP, in which case a PostScript or PCL5/6 driver can send the print data to that. If it does, you need to connect to the printer's own network port, instead of that on the Fiery. You will also need to install the correct driver.
As to whether the printer has a built-in RIP, someone may be able yo tell you if you give us the exact model number. Alternatively, if you print the printer's configuration pages (not those of the Fiery), it may tell us what it can do.
