Ok, I was wrong...again....

In one of my prior posts, I mentioned some ways of increasing the speed existing Edgeline platform

Some of this conjecture was incorrect. Changing the orientation of the page as it enters the printing engine was, in theory, allowing one more page to be printed during each printing cycle.

After further research, this will not work.

In the present configuration of the Edgeline the print heads cover only 8.5 inches. When an 11x17 copy or print is generated, the page needs to be passed under the heads twice, decreasing the throughput speed very significantly. So, if paper is injected in a portrait orientation, the page would need to pass under the heads twice.
