          • 4 Different Scenarios:
            –   Pegasys 5.0 with Horizon
            –   Pegasys 5.0 with EP-1000
            –   JETStream with Horizon
            –   JETStream with EP-1000
          • Why?
            – Pegasys and JETStream have different
              operating systems and applications software
            – Horizon and EP-1000 have different
Page 15
              architectures and compatibilities
                 Pegasys 5.0 to Horizon
               Recommended Configuration
          • Small Format Printing (on all Horizons)
              – Codonics Printer Driver version 7 installed on host system
              – EP Emulation on printer – license required
          • Large Format Printing
              – DICOM 4.24 or 4.25 on Host
              – DICOM on printer – license required
          • DICOM Connectivity:
              – Use custom AE Titles
              – Limited print layouts (1x1 and 2x2) are supported in the
                Pegasys DICOM interface.
              – Will also support small format printing
          • Quick Start Guide available
Page 16   Note: Codonics Printer Driver does not support 14x17 printing
                Pegasys 5.0 to EP-1000
              Recommended Configuration
          • Codonics Printer Driver version 7 must be
            installed on host system
          • Quick Start Guide available
             – Most significant / difficult issue is setting IP address
               of parallel to network interface




Page 17
                 Connecting to the EP-1000
          • EP-1000 printer has 2 interfaces (USB and parallel)
          • Codonics Printer Driver on Pegasys and Codonics
            Windows Printer Drivers (on JETStream) only support
            network printing.
          • The solution … an external parallel to network interface.
              – The only way to print to the EP-1000
              – Requires a separate power supply
              – For JETStream --- Must have it’s IP address set via a DOS
                utility

             Note: The JETStream will find the printer if you
             connect via the USB interface and search for it, but
             there are no compatible drivers and the application
Page 18      software will not print to it.
                JETStream 2.5.1 to Horizon
               Recommended Configuration
          • DICOM required for all Horizon models

             – Use custom AE Titles
             – Supports all media types and sizes
          • PostScript is required for Add-on programs such as
            AutoQuant
             – Must be purchased separately for Philips Nuclear Medicine
               Horizon SF and Ci configurations
             – Must install Codonics printer driver included in Horizon box
             – Follow Codonics directions for installing printer driver …

                         What is MCM?
          • MCM stands for Medical Color Matching,
            Codonics’ exclusive method of matching color
            printed output to the monitor.
          • This setting is designed only for color images
            and has no effect on grayscale prints.
          • We have designed several MCM profiles for
            Philips Nuclear Medicine products.Make sure
            that you have Color selected in the DICOM or
            Printer Driver setup.

                                                   FAQ

             What is the EP emulation key?
          • The EP emulation key allows Horizon to receive
            images from Pegasys using the Codonics print
            driver provided on the Pegasys.
          • This key is required for non-DICOM printer
            installations. Most Pegasys printer installations
            use this driver and therefore require this key.
          • If you are replacing an NP series or EP series
            printer with a Horizon SF, you will very likely
            need this key.

                Horizon prints using the printer driver are
              consistently dark, regardless of the settings in
                      the printer’s KDU (front panel).
          Create a Custom Job Setting in the Horizon called RAW_JS and change the
             LUT setting to Visual:
          1. Press and hold the left arrow button (  ) while pressing the Menu
             button. Release both buttons.
          2. Press the down arrow (  ) to the Custom Job Settings menu and
             press Enter.
          3. Select New…
          4. Select Name
          5. Press the left ( ) and right arrows simultaneously to blank out the
             MYSETTINGS name.
          6. Using the up and down arrows, (   ) enter the name RAW_JS and
             press Enter.
          7. Arrow down to LUT and press Enter.
          8. Change LUT to Visual and press Enter.
          9. Press Menu to exit.
Page 36   The rest of the image settings (gamma, contrast, saturation…) may also
             be controlled from this menu.
                                            FAQ
              Where are the larger page size
            formats in the printer driver setup?
          • The Codonics Printer Driver supports
            small-format (8x10 and A-size) printing
            only.
          • Large format printing must be done
            using DICOM.

                                               FAQ
             The Horizon is prompting for 8x10
              CV Paper. Where can I get this?
          • This is not a valid media combination.
          • Check the Codonics configuration screen
            (either through DICOM or the driver,
            depending on your installation.)
          • Make sure that both the media size and the
            media type are set up correctly.
          • Additionally, through DICOM make sure the AE
            Title is a-cvp or a4-cvp, as appropriate.

                                                 FAQ
            The Print Preview screen refuses to
               activate when using DICOM.
          Turn Print Preview off and re-start.
          1. Go into the DICOM configuration
          2. Turn off Print Preview.
          3. Exit Configuration.
          4. Re-enter configuration
          5. Turn Print Preview back on
          6. Save & Exit.
          7. Restart Printer Daemon

                                           FAQ
              Color printing is not working
                    through DICOM.
          • Make sure you have DICOM software
            4.24 or 4.25.
          • Make sure that you have Color selected
            in the DICOM or Printer Driver setup.
