Once the user’s printer has been installed onto their system, the user can check its status, rename it, align paper, and much more by simply entering the IP address in the address bar of the web browser.

“The Accel-a-Writer 4G and 4N have advanced so far since the release of the first Accel-a-Writer from Xanté,” Robert C.

The 4G and 4N are proof of that as the Accel-a-Writer 4G is the most complete solution designed specifically for the graphics professional and the Accel-a-Writer 4N has features conducive to today’s business environment. The new processor and Easy-to-Use web browser interface make the 4 series one of the more advanced printing solutions on the market.”

The Accel-a-Writer 4G comes with Xanté’s exclusive Graphic Software Package. Included are: X-ACTTM, patented Xanté’s Accurate Calibration Technology, which gives the user precise control over horizontal and vertical dimensions on page images, ensuring unmatched output accuracy; densitometer support allowing the user to calibrate grayscales to achieve superior halftone images; Halftone Calibration allowing for adjusting of the gamma curves in halftones; and Enhanced Screening, a feature that permits fine tune output quality by providing 40% more levels of gray when needed.

For those business professionals needing a high quality printing package, without being graphics specific, the Accel-a-Writer 4N is the answer. Designed for the office environment, the 4N is a perfect network printer capable of oversized printing, high resolution up to 1200 x 1200 dpi, an excellent optional duplexing feature adding a maximum 1,650 sheet output, and much more.

The Accel-a-Writer 4 series relies on Adobe® PostScript® 3™ for compatibility issues abounding in today’s complex printing world. Oversized printing allows for printing custom size output up to 13″ x 35.5″ (330 mm x 901 mm) — great for posters, presentations, 4 full-bleed letter size documents on the same piece of paper, and the freedom to print registration marks.
