2011 - As technical lead for the AirPrint at one of HP's LaserJet printer divisions I created an iPad application that interfaces with the AirPrint APIs on iOS.  The application prints unto 12x18" image based upon the Media-Ready values from the printer.  Media-Ready is an Internet Print Protocol (IPP) attribute that the printer can use to tell the client what size paper is loaded in the printer.

This allow an iOS application that is using AirPrint to display the list of paper sizes the printer currently has installed and the user can select the preferred media size and the application can format the print job to match the selected media size.
