Multi -threaded processing
Enterprise & Premium Law Edition versions only.
Up-to 32 process threads, for processing multiple directory monitor tasks at once, e.g. if you setup to monitor two folders then both can scanned at the same time to print without having to wait for the other to finish.
These threads are separate processes so are distributed by windows to available cpu cores automatically.

Enterprise & Premium Law Edition versions only.
For file types: pdf, prn, spl, ps, pcl, tiff, jpg, gif, png, bmp, wmf, nef, cr2 & crw  (all other types detected are processed in single thread mode automatically)
Can process up-to 64 printing threads per process, for printing multiple files at once to any number of printers. (this can be controlled per monitor and thru-ought the print process)  i.e. it can produce upto 32 process threads, then upto 64 print threads per monitored folder thread. ( 32x64 = 2048 threads max )
e.g. 2 folders monitored with 4 files in each will create 2 process threads and those will create 4 print threads each at the same time. total 10 threads.
