【Fujitsu】 F6774D Cut-Sheet Page Printer

The F6774D was Fujitsu’s cut-sheet page printer that could print fast, high quality host forms and print personal computer / workstation documents via a host. Fujitsu announced the printer in May 1991. The printer supported Fujitsu’s new JEF*/AP (advanced printing) print system that enabled outline fonts and per-page control of print parameters.

Features of the F6774D:
(1)Higher resolution for faster, higher quality printing
The F6774D delivered high print quality and the first 400 dpi resolution in the host-computer print market. It also used new technologies that enabled high-speed printing of outline fonts, graphics, and image data.
(2)Innovative technologies powered by JEF/AP
The F6774D was furnished with a very-high-speed RISC processor to process coordinate transformations and high-speed iterative operations. Fujitsu also developed special LSIs that made it possible to scale characters and add embellishments by modifying and transforming outline fonts. As a result, the F6774D could quickly render characters, graphics, and image data.

*JEF: Japanese processing Extended Feature, a Japanese-language information system developed by Fujitsu.
