Black Ice Software has released all new printer driver features in version 16.17.2494. These new features include adding multiple ports for parallel printing or adding multiple parallel printers automatically by simply activating the printer driver with a serial key! The registration/activation process now automatically creates the parallel printers or creates the parallel ports for printing. The great advantage of this unique technology, is it greatly simplifies installation and deployment of parallel printers, which is a feature initially introduced in 2015 by Black Ice Software. Simply registering/activating the printer driver with a serial key allows the activation process to create the printers or adds the ports in the background.

The advantage of printer with parallel ports is that every user on the system only sees one printer for document conversion, Emailing, Uploading files to the Web Server, FTP server, or Database but in the background there could be 10-50 parallel conversions going on.

For example; on a server where there are 25-50 users working from home and in the morning all of the users need to print or convert documents at the same time, some user have only a few page documents but other users may have 20-50 pages document, the users have to wait until each print job in the queue goes through one printer driver one job at the time. But with parallel printing each print job converted simultaneously in parallel, a significant time saver and frustration saver.

Do not confuse Agent (task) printers with parallel printers. Agent printers are not parallel printers, each agent printer can have his own configuration for a specific task but there is only one driver and one port for all the agent printer. Every print job sent to Agent printers are going through one driver sequentially one at a time.
