Zoran Corp. announced that Sharp Corp. has agreed to license its IPS XPS page description language (PDL) interpreter for use in its color MX series and monochrome AR series printers and multifunction peripherals (MFPs).

According to the press release, Sharp has agreed to participate in Zoran's IPS XPS Early Adopter Program to receive pre-release source code. The IPS XPS interpreter supports the new XML Paper Specification (XPS) Document format that opens Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system to vendor innovation. Zoran added that the IPS XPS interpreter will allow Sharp's printers and MFPs to provide direct XPS support, maximize performance, and improve document fidelity from new applications using WinFX, the Windows programming model, for Windows Vista and XP systems.

In addition, Zoran's IPS XPS interpreter coexists with other Zoran PDL interpreters in Sharp products and assures full compatibility with the Windows Vista operating system in a small incremental ROM and RAM footprint.

"Sharp is pleased to begin early integration of the Zoran IPS XPS interpreter as it provides the development groups with the opportunity to fine tune the technology in advance of the scheduled Windows Vista release," said Mary Bourret, director, embedded imaging department, Sharp Laboratories of America.
