The purpose of the ThinPrint Hub is to receive ThinPrint print jobs, to process and then forward them to the printers via the network or the USB interface. ThinPrint print jobs are sent by a ThinPrint Engine which must be purchased separately; the ThinPrint Hub is a supplement of it.
As a Personal Printing Release Station, the ThinPrint Hub can also be used to retrieve Personal Printing print jobs via authentication from a Personal Printing server. Personal Printing must also be purchased separately.
