A Virtual Printer for Electronic medical records

USB connected printer

For three days after the September 11 event in New York, the FAA grounded commercial air transport. Ten years on, this decision alone has had a profound impact on my part of the electronic document industry. In those three days, millions of sheets of printed documents did not get to where they needed to be. Checks did not get to banks, contracts were not completed, medical records did not get to doctors. What followed was a whole raft of legislation that gave a huge boost to the “paperless office”.

Xerox™ DJDE/Metacode conversion

Here at RedTitan we have seen an increase in requests for information on our Xerox™ DJDE/Metacode converter. With Covid-19 playing havoc with printing sites do you need to outsource your mainframe data printing requirements or just convert the output meant for a Xerox™ centralised electronic printer to an electronic document in PDF or other format.

If Yes then we have the solution. 

The RedTitan DataStream Converter LCDS will convert files designed for Xerox™ printers into either PDF, Postscript, PCL or AFP.

See http://www.redtitan.co.uk/index.php/datastream-converter-lcds/ for further details.

PDF – Sign and Secure

Put simply, RedTitan speeds up the process. Yes – Adobe Acrobat™ will sign or encrypt a PDF but if you have to repeat this process 10,000 times you might need a helping hand . . .

Just choose a shortcut in RedTitan EscapeE to a digital certificate and now you can automate PDF signing mass production on the command line.

escapee builtin*.pdf /pdf /sign rtsign2020

Fast – No coding – no API – easy to integrate with your workflow.

Internet Printing Protocol

To complement our range of print capture solutions we now offer IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) alongside our hardware and software solutions enabling the capture of Parallel, USB and serial port output as well as TCP/IP attached printers using IPP, LPR or streamed port. If you cannot change your “type approved” or “blackbox” hardware then The RedTitan Virtual Printer provides a safe replacement for the printer that will create both a printed record and an electronic document.

Please see Print2PC for details of the hardware solutions and EscapeE for details of the conversion solutions

Impact of BREXIT on business communications

The RedTitan office in the UK views BREXIT (UK leaves the EU in March 2019) with the same concerns as much of British business: more paperwork, more administration and more costs – but it’s an ill wind …

Every document (printed or electronic) that cites an EU law (say) will need redrafting and guess who is very good at that. RedTitan software can make a few tweaks (or a major overhaul) without having to re-hire those offshore contractors

The scope of the change is still not clear (the politicians still don’t have a plan) but the rumours aren’t good. There was plenty of time to plan for fixing the millennium bug (and that was a very simple concept). This time the impact and the rules are a little more vague and the reaction of British business is everything from “it will be all right on the night” to sneaking a few HQ staff off to Amsterdam. As always, it is the nimble that will avoid the worst of the shock and those equipped with RedTitan document transform software will be able to react fast to new legislation.

For RedTitan in the UK the “brexit bonus” came early.

If you don’t have RedTitan software you don’t really own your business communications.

Capture print hardware – The virtual printer.

USB connected printerRedTitan make software to convert and transform document formats but migration from printed paper to electronic formats is complicated by legacy hardware and security issues. Easy for networked devices but RedTitan handle the difficult cases by using hardware to emulate the printer! We have two main models

We also make a Serial port capture packaged solution based on Raspberry PI hardware. This device has all the advantages of LAN or WIFI connection in a small footprint. Call or email for details help@redtitan.com

It all about trust

Hide your stuff under the mattress and you are vulnerable to a small population of burglars and  the occasional catastrophe. Hide your files on the cloud and you become a target to the world! The advice is always – don’t leave important files in “plain” on public servers. The question is, how do you publish a file to a select few without having to trust server password security or complex programs. ZIP and PDF get close but it’s difficult to operate.

RedWrap is a novel approach. Take an HTML file, encrypt using BLOWFISH and publish as HTML that can only be viewed if you know the password. There are several advantages to browser based decryption.

  • The password never gets as far as the public server
  • The code can be audited by the great and good (it is there in plain JavaScript)
  • Readers don’t need to install anything
  • It defeats browser caching.
  • You can add hints or preview information as you see fit

Capture all printout

Confused about the RedTitan print capture options?

If you want to create electronic documents (like PDF) instead of printing and you cannot change the driver options see our Print2PC hardware. It will capture the print sent to USB or PARALLEL PORT connected printers. Google “virtual printer hardware”

If you just want to publish a virtual network printer ask about our INTERNET PRINTING PROTOCOL (IPP) solutions. IPP works with LINUX, MAC, IOS, WINDOWS and ANDROID.

If you want to carry on printing to paper on a Windows PC but create a PDF from everything that is printed, our new “CAPTURE EVERTHING” port monitor will do the job. Capture everything you print without interfering with your usual routine!

Our print transform software EscapeE will integrate all your captured documents with your existing workflow – convert, transform, index, publish – contact help@redtitan.com

 

 

Google strikes over SOPA

It looks like 2012 is going to be a great year for the internet and a poor year for government. If the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) gets into law, then being caught infringing copyright could leave you cut off from the internet.

The proposed bill is so wide ranging that there is considerable opposition from many of the web big hitters with rumours that Google, Facebook and Twitter will stage a temporary brownout in protest. Continue reading “Google strikes over SOPA”
