In computing a virtual printer is a simulated device whose user interface and API resemble that of a printer driver, but which is not connected with a physical computer printer.
When a document is 'printed' by a virtual printer, instead of physically printing it on paper or other material the underlying software processes the images of its pages in some other way, often resulting in a file being produced or the images being transmitted.
In the early 1960s the B5500Master Control Program (MCP) operating system included virtual printers, called 'Printer Backups' in the form of Printer Backup Tapes (PBT) and Printer Backup Disks (PBD). IBM's VM/370 operating system allows users to spool a virtual printer (or punch) file to another user, who can read it as input. This provides a basic means of file transfer.
Typical uses of virtual printers include:
- Saving a document to another format such as a PDF or multi-page TIFF file.
- Sending documents to a fax server.
- Allowing user to control certain aspects of printing not supported natively, such as printing multiple pages per sheet without border, print letterhead, watermarks etc. This output can either be saved in a file for future printing or passed to another printer.
- Previewing a printed document before printing it, to save ink and paper. This functionality is also built into many GUI applications.
- Allowing remote printing of documents over the Internet. At least one example of this technology creates a virtual printer on one computer which actually converts the document and sends it to a remote server, from which the file can be printed to a printer attached to a PC in a remote location. Similar technology is also being used to allow printing from devices such as smart phones.

Camera / hdmi converter requirements
Virtual.ink can work either with an HDMI converter (opening the door to any camera that can deliver clean hdmi out), a Canon camera through usb only, or a webcam (with limitations). The best option is the first one.
Option 1- Camera through HDMI converter
One or two compatible cameras (see list)
One or two compatible HDMI to USB converter (see list)
Option 2- Camera through USB
Canon only, Windows only, 1024px resolution max (this is what Canon is providing through usb only). This is the most simple way of using this software. You simply need one compatible Canon Camera: any of their DSLR, some recent mirrorless (M50, R, RP, M6ii, M200), some recent powershots (G7xiii, G5xii). You can run only one camera through usb-direct (but you can combine this with a second camera on a HDMI converter)
Option 3- Webcam
Logitech Brio or any webcam when you can set manual settings
The included remote control is great to test and operate within 2 meters from the computer, but for performances or outdoors work, please consider these options:

Cables, tripods and brackets
Camera bracket (this is what I use with my two Canon SL2): https://amzn.to/2DMoiHK
L-Shaped HDMI cable. Our kit comes with HDMI cables, but to get two cameras closer (or to have a more solid setup), I recently came across these L-Shaped cables. They take super long to get, but they totally worth it, especially if you intend to use the bracket listed above. https://amzn.to/2GLQihP
Tripod: any sturdy tripod is going to do the trick. These days, I’m using mostly this lightweight one: Benro Slim Carbon Fiber: https://amzn.to/2TYoUkA
Drivers Virtual Ink Printer
If you’re planning on recording longer duration videos (over a minute), then it’s safer to keep 100% of the horse power of your computer for the light-painting and use a dedicated recording device. This can be a second computer paired with an additional hdmi-to-usb converter, or an external recorder like the Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket Portable Stand Alone HD

Most HDMI cables are straight. I’ve been experimenting lately with these angled ones, and they are much more reliable, and they take less space, allowing you to put your two cameras closer to each other. Select the right orientation!
