Digital Entertainment Scenarios (1)

  • UPnP v1:

  • UPnP allows a Control Point to discover a device on the network

  • UPnP Print allows printing without a print driver.

  • UPnP AV allows rich digital media i.e. Photos to be discovered and rendered.

  • 1) Mobile Digital Entertainment Devices join network

    • View, Edit, Print, & Store Photographs

WiFi Camera

Phone, PDA, Mobile Entertainment

Card to TV

Printer Device

The PrintBasic:1 Serviceis mandatory in a Printer Device. PrintBasic:2 is optional.

Printbasic 1 vs printbasic 2 l.jpg
PrintBasic:1 vs. PrintBasic:2

  • PrintBasic:1 enables printing from a control point to a UPnP Printer

    • Requires XHTML-Print Support for documents

      • Requires JPEG support for images

  • PrintBasic:2 improves printing by providing the following features for photo printing:

    • Layout Features

      • Borderless Printing

      • Album Pages

      • Photos-up printing

      • Index Printing (rotation)

    • Text Superimposed on Images (e.g., Date Print over Photo)

    • Trim/Crop Capabilities

    • Early disconnect information tracking so that mobile handhelds can leave once the data transfer was complete

    • Preserving User Intent on a print (e.g., conserve photo paper)

  • PrintBasic:2 requires Enhanced XHTML-Print support for documents

    • JPEG support for images

Xhtml print guideline l.jpg
XHTML-Print Guideline

A guideline document supplemental to the normative XHTML-Print specification and will be included as an annex to the PrintBasic:2 specification.

The guideline consists of three sections :

  • Interpretation Rules

    • Specifies how PrintBasic:2 printers should interpret expressions to achieve consistent output.

  • Usage Rules

    • Specifies how content should be written by clients to achieve consistent output among PrintBasic:2 printers.

  • Templates (Reference)

    • Example templates provided to highlight expected output.

Call to action l.jpg
Call to Action

  • UPnP Printing is simple and valued by your customers.

  • The Imaging Committee encourages Consumer Electronics device (Control Points) vendors to enable UPnP printing.

  • Printer Vendors should support UPnP PrintBasic:2 providing ubiquitous photo printing.
