IBM, ADOBE TEAM TO LAUNCH $5,000 POSTSCRIPT PAGE PRINTER

By CBR Staff Writer

In a supplement to its Tuesday announcement, IBM yesterday joined forces with Adobe Systems Inc, Mountain View, California to announce a multi-purpose PostScript printer for MS-DOS, OS/2, IBM RT and other machines, including the Apple Macintosh. Called the IBM Personal Page Printer II, and shipping in the US this week, the product is a desktop laser printer running at up to six pages per minute with resolution of 300 dots per inch. As well as PostScript, it has IBM Proprinter XL and Hewlett Laserjet Plus emulators, serial, parallel and Apple LocalTalk interfaces, and comes with 43 PostScript typefaces, more than any other desktop printer on the market. The IBM Personal Page Printer II costs $5,000.

IBM also said it is putting up $2m in kind for a joint venture at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, Columbia with the aim of exploring new uses in journalism of the latest micro technology. Eastman Kodak Co’s Atex Publishing Systems is donating $250,000 of softare.
