Fast Network Printing - charged service (Guideline for Notebook Computer Users)
(For more information, please refer to Frequently Asked Questions / Policies for this service)
Fast printing service is available in Computing Services Centre for providing fast, high quality Black/White and Color printings. It is a charged service to supplement the existing quota-based printing service with the following purposes:
- Provides self-service printing in both Color and in Black & White;
- Supports high-volume printing at fast speed, and
- Provides low-cost printing when the allocated print quota is used up.
Three high performance printers called "Charge01", "Charge02" & "CMC_Charge01" are used for the service. Two print queues are created for each printer so as to provide optimized settings for Black/White or Color printings.
Printers can be found at the following locations:
- Charge01 (AC2 4/F near CSC Service Counter)
- Charge02 (AC2 5/F near Room 5503)
- CMC_Charge01 (CMC 4/F)
To increase user convenience, we have added this printing service to notebook computers. User can submit their print jobs through the notebooks anywhere.
