A new set of proposed standards has been developed for integration of fascimile transmission and the Internet, and products based on these standards are now available. An Internet fax unit sends a TIFF file as an e-mail attachment to another Internet fax or a PC with an e-mail address. On receipt of such an E-mail, an Internet fax prints out the image data as a legacy fax machine does. The image data received by a PC can be displayed with a TIFF viewer, realizing paper-less fax communications.

A second-generation Internet fax will add color image transmission/reception capability and accept photo images directly from digital cameras. It has a new mode of operation in which it does not send a TIFF file as an e-mail attachment. Instead, the scanned image is sent to and stored in a predetermined WWW server, and the Internet fax unit just sends an e-mail to notify the recipient of the URL of the image.

  • For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
