Download DPS Source Code

DPS the "Demo Print System" is an experimental inkjet print driver, aimed at driving an Epson R1800 printer. The source code is licensed under the GNU General Public License. The intention of the project is to include a complete, state of the art printing pipeline, including a comprehensive color management system (base on Argyll), a calibration system, a flexible multi-level screening system, as well as the necessary drivers for the Epson R1800 printer, including soft weaving, and Escape P driver. Many of the intended features are designed to make it a test bed for researching and developing color profiling and calibration tools. Initially it is coded only for the Epson R1800, although some view is given to generalizing the drivers at some later stage

Currently this project is at a very early stage of development, with only some sub-sections complete. For those interested in tracking progress, the ZIP archive of the 0.4 release is here. This includes a working stochastic screening system.
