• Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)

    An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a mechanism that will automatically feed an original sheet of paper so that a printer can scan some amount of the paper at once.

  • Photoshop

    Adobe Photoshop is the most widely used photo editing software in the world.

    It is also heavily used by graphic designers to create logos, buttons and other graphics for web sites.

  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP)

    FTP is a protocol for transferring files over TCP/IP networks such as the Internet.

    To transfer files, you need to connect to an FTP server with some FTP client software.

    FTP can be used to transfer very large files, especially files that are too large to be sent via email. However, the need for a server to exchange files with someone else makes this less practical than email.

    FTP is also commonly used to upload web pages and web applications to web sites. Most web servers also feature an FTP server.

    Some commonly use FTP clients are:

    • Windows: FileZilla
    • Mac: CyberDuck, Transmit
    • Unix: ftp command
  • Duty Cycle

    Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer performance for a month. Generally the printer has the lifespan limitation such as pages per year. The lifespan means the average capacity of print-outs, usually within the warranty period. For example, if the duty cycle is 48,000 pages per month assuming 20 working days, a printer limits to 2,400 pages a day.

  • WEP

    Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security protocol specified in the IEEE 802.11 standard to provide the same level of security as the one of a wired LAN.

    WEP provides security by encrypting data sent wirelessly so that it is protected as it is transmitted from one end point to another.

    WEP is not regarded as very secure in the industry. 

  • Modem

    A modulator-demodulator is a device used to transmit digital data over an analog channel. It modulates/demodulates a carrier signal in order to encode digital information onto it.

    A modem is typically used to transmit computer data over POTS phone lines.

  • IEEE

    The Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is an non-profit organisation involved in advance development of all technologies related to electricity.

  • TIFF

    The Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) is a non compressed bitmap image format, typically produced by scanners.

    TIFF images typically include tags defining the characteristics of the image that is included in the file.

  • EtherTalk

    A suite of protocols developed by Apple for computer networking. It was included in the original Macintosh (1984) and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.

  • HDD

    A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) a.k.a. hard drive or hard disk, is a non-volatile storage device. It stores digitally-encoded data on rapidly rotating platters with magnetic surfaces.
