AirCastPro™II Print Features

Landscape/Portrait Borders
Use your own custom borders for prints. See "Print Borders" for more information.

ICC Profile
AirCastPro™II will attempt to select the default ICC profile for your printer. Other profiles, made for specialty paper, for instance, may also be available.

Fill the Print Area
Fills the entire print area with the image using center-weighted cropping.
Deselect this option of you want the image to fit to the page size with no cropping. Unless the image and  print area are the same aspect ratio, there will be margins of whitespace.

Remove Excess Whitespace
Some images are converted to PDF format and are embedded with whitespace padding. If you find that your image is overly zoomed or shows areas of unwanted whitespace, Select this option.

Bypass HEIPr™ Engine
AirCastPro™II has replaced its already fast imaging engine with the brand-new, ultra-fast HEIPr™ Engine. HEIPr™ can process images from two times faster with smaller images and as much as twenty-five times faster for very large images than its predecessor.
The HEIPr™ Engine is responsible for adding borders, resizing and cropping images if needed, and converting a multitude of image formats into a printable format. In most cases, it is a good idea to keep HEIPr™ on.
There may be situations where the source image matches the print output and the file is small enough where bypassing HEIPr™ is the best solution for printing. Select this option to deactivate the HEIPr™ Engine.

Create Hot Folder
AirCastPro™II enables hot folder printing by default. If you wish to disable it, deselect this option.

Remaining Prints
If your printer is online, AirCastPro™II will poll your printer for media levels. If your printer is offline, the Remaining Prints count will be an estimate.
