XEROX’S CHALLENGING NEW DOCUMENT CENTRES USE LYNXOS

By CBR Staff Writer

Despite the company’s sudden interest in the PowerPC as purveyed by Motorola Inc (CI No 2,752) Xerox Corp’s Document Centre System products are indeed Sparc-driven (CI No 2,770); they use the microSparc and run the LynxOS microkernel enhanced by Xerox and Sun Microsystems Inc. Therre is also some Tadpole Technology Plc circuit design. The System 35 is for up to 50 users, it copies and prints at 35 pages per minute with resolutions of up to 600 by 2,400 dots per inch. System 20 is for groups of up to 20, and copies and prints at 20ppm with 400dpi resolution. Users can print, copy, send by facsimile and finish documents using Document Centre’s CentreWare interface software, the company said. This integrates Document Centre’s features into a Xerox window on the user’s desktop. Document Centre supports Mac OS, Unix with Motif, MS-DOS and Windows. OS/2, NT and maybe AS/400 support will follow next year, according to Patrick Martin, president of Xerox Office Document Products division. Xerox will work with Novell Inc to create other software for Document Centre architecture, asserts Fernando Pozo, vice-president of network marketing. It is working on Nested NetWare compatibility.
