1 How it works

To give the needed flexibility to Users, Resellers, and OPCO’s in creating a Logo or a front and back page, the best solution is to allow usage of whatever Computer editing software they own for text/graphics edition. Mixing this graphic work with the DICOM printout is based on PostScript forms. Creation/design can be made with whatever software you want using the standard PS printer driver and asking for form creation in the advanced setting. Refer to the standard printer manual. The created files can be packaged and downloaded to the printer with OKI free software: “Storage Device Manager” or “Configuration Tool”.

2 Recommendations

Resolution of the Artwork: Each time a printout is made using the “Header Logo” function, the header Logo file is computed in addition to the DICOM printing. Therefore, be careful not to put a too high resolution Logo in the Header. It is very easy to resize a high resolution logo to the adequate size in any page publishing program, but resizing doesn’t resample the image to remove the useless details. Sometimes, just resizing will produce a very high resolution logo file which will be processor consuming at printout time. If you notice a sensible loss in performance when you print with Logo Header option, you certainly produced a too high resolution file for the purpose. We recommend using Graphics at a resolution between 200 and 300dpi at 1:1 scale.

3 Limitations

You need to use a MS Windows computer as the Storage Device Manager and Configuration Tool are only available for this platform. You need to install the PostScript diver for your printer. Only one form for the header or for the booklet is available for one paper format in one printer. 3 Copyright © 2016 Oki Data Corporation. All rights reserved.

4 Header Page Layout

A space for text header is reserved at the top of the page. This space is increased in case of use of graphical “Logo Header”. Space for text header Additional space that is taken for graphical header you will create. Printable area when Logo Header is selected. Unprintable area The reserved space on the DICOM page for the logo is always at the top of the A4/Letter or A3/Tabloid format. The DICOM print area begins one inch (25.4mm) below the paper edge. The unprintable area is 5mm around the page thus the remaining space is 20.4mm for the Logo and/or text. If you want to have an equilibrated spacing with the DICOM maximum area printout, we recommend creating a 15 to 16mm height artwork starting at 5mm from top of page.

5 Booklet Page Layout

The Space for booklet cover and back page is a whole A4 or A3 page. The medical image is printed on the other side. Once folded, you get A5 or A4 booklet. Front Page is at the right side. Unprintable area The unprintable area is 5mm around the page and all the remaining space is free for customization. Copyright © 2016 Oki Data Corporation. All rights reserved. 5

6 Using MS WordPad or MS Word for Headers

Open a new document in MS WordPad or MS Word. First step is to select the paper format you want to produce accordingly with the format you want to DICOM print with the header. 1) 2) 3) Set the paper format to desired size A4, Letter, A3 or Tabloid. Keep the page orientation in Portrait even if you intend to produce Landscape DICOM printouts. Adjust the margins for the printer printable area to 5 mm each side. Page format margins 4) Type text and/or paste your logo in the upper part of the page. Tips: Reduce the MS Word window to show only the available area (align with the 2cm rule graduation). Use the 0.75cm sub graduation to visualize the horizontal axis of the free area. Copyright © 2016 Oki Data Corporation. All rights reserved. 6

5) You have completed your Header creation. You can check it by printing on paper. Once OK, you will need to produce the form file for the printer. You may get difficulties in creating A4/Letter document with the latest MS Word. The reason is that Office changes the print format automatically up to your computer regional settings. A simple way of checking is to print for real the document on the destination printer. If the print is OK, then you only need to adjust your document. If the printer asks for Letter when you print an A4 document (or vice versa), you need to proceed through the following steps. Open: File/options Deselect “Scale content for A4 or 8.5x11” paper sizes”. Copyright © 2016 Oki Data Corporation. All rights reserved. 7

6) Print to file option. Up to the version of Windows and Office you use you may have to setup the driver for printing into File. Open the Configuration Panel and edit the PS printer properties. Then in the “Ports” Tab, select File and apply. 7) Set up the PostScript printer driver for forms creation. In the print dialog from Word, open Printer Settings. Then Job Option Tab and click on “Overlay” button. Select “Create Form”. Copyright © 2016 Oki Data Corporation. All rights reserved. 8

You should get a warning popup. 8) Apply and close Printer setting dialog. Print to generate the file. Print your job. A popup window will appear asking you for the file name you want to use. Use full path naming for saving i.e. “C:\Dicomheaders\Header A4.hst”. Names should be: Header-A4.hst, for A4 paper Header-A3.hst, for A3 paper Header-Letter.hst for Letter paper Header-Tabloid.hst for the Tabloid paper Header-A3Nobi.hst for the A3 NOBI paper (328x453 mm) The following formats are not possible in MS word, see next page of this document how to work them with MS PowerPoint: Header-215X900.hst for the 215 x 900 mm paper Header-215X1200.hst for the 215 x 1200 mm paper Header-297X900.hst for the 297 x 900 mm paper Header-297X1200.hst for the 297 x 1200 mm paper Header-328X900.hst for the 328 x 900 mm paper Header-328X1200.hst for the 328 x 1200 mm paper Copyright © 2016 Oki Data Corporation.

7 Using MS PowerPoint to create Headers

As you may have noticed MS Word is limited in format and can’t handle “banner” sizes having dimension over 55.87 cm. Open a new document in MS PowerPoint. First step is to select the paper format you want to produce accordingly with the format you want to DICOM print with the header. 1) In Design, Page Setup Set the paper format to desired size. 2) Keep the page orientation in Portrait even if you intend to produce Landscape DICOM printouts. 3) Type text and/or paste your logo in the upper part of the page. Tips: Reduce the MS PowerPoint window to show only the available area (align at 2.5 cm from top graduation). Copyright © 2016 Oki Data Corporation. All rights reserved. 10

4) Open the picture tool window in PowerPoint. Select the compress picture tool. Use the above settings or 150 ppi to reduce the size of your graphic elements for better printing speed, and click OK. 5) Before printing, specify the custom paper format in the printer advanced settings. Copyright © 2016 Oki Data Corporation. All rights reserved. 11

6) Follow naming scheme of your files as per following: Header-A4.hst, for A4 paper (210x297 mm) Header-A3.hst, for A3 paper(297x420 mm) Header-Letter.hst for Letter paper (215x279 mm) Header-Tabloid.hst for the Tabloid paper (279x432 mm) Header-A3Nobi.hst for the A3 NOBI paper (328x453 mm) Header-215X900.hst for the 215 x 900 mm paper Header-215X1200.hst for the 215 x 1200 mm paper Header-297X900.hst for the 297 x 900 mm paper Header-297X1200.hst for the 297 x 1200 mm paper Header-328X900.hst for the 328 x 900 mm paper Header-328X1200.hst for the 328 x 1200 mm paper

Be careful when creating the document to always use custom format in PowerPoint even for already defined paper size.

i.e. for Letter create page as custom: Also make sure that the scale to fit paper option is disabled in both dialogs: Copyright © 2016 Oki Data Corporation. All rights reserved. 12
