Refined Printing Command Stream, also known as RPCS, is a vector-based[1] printing/duplicating control protocol, designed for communication between Microsoft Windows PC clients, and several lines of Ricoh copiers. Drivers provided by Ricoh install the chosen copier to behave as a printer device.

The size-efficiency of the protocol is comparable to PCL6.[1]

Drivers[edit]

Ricoh offers RPCS based drivers for Windows, Mac OS and to some extent for Linux.

Linux[edit]

Drivers for Linux are provided only on the Japanese website. Instead of Aficio they are called IPSiO.[2][3]
