Universal Print Driver

What is the Universal Print Driver?

The Lexmark Universal Print Driver provide users and administrators with a standardized, one-driver solution for their printing needs. Instead of installing and managing individual drivers for each printer model, administrators can install the Lexmark Universal Print Driver for use with a variety of both mono and color laser printers and multi-function devices.


Allows versatility

The Lexmark Universal Print Drivers are available in 22 languages, supporting more than 60 printer models, whether attached locally or over a network. All packages have been tested in cluster server environments, Microsoft Terminal Server and Citrix environments, and are Microsoft WHQL certified (digitally signed). PCL 5, PCL XL, and PostScript 3 emulations are available for Windows 2000 and later.

Enables bidirectional communication

The bidirectional communication capability allows the driver to automatically detect and update the installed options both at install time and upon user request. This allows the driver to adapt to the various capabilities of our different printers, but unlike other universal print drivers, the network traffic is minimal.

Reduces cost for IT support

With only one package to manage, testing and internal certification of print drivers is simplified by the use of the Lexmark Universal Print Driver packages. Time spent on installation, both on servers and workstations, is greatly reduced, and hard drive space formerly occupied by many product-specific drivers is now diminished significantly.

Enables increased user efficiency

The Lexmark Universal Print Driver packages use the same graphic user interface as the product-specific drivers the users are accustomed to, and now all queues will share that same interface, decreasing calls to the help desk. Users can create and save profiles for their most frequently used settings, or use profiles that were created for them by IT.

Facilitates corporate sustainability initiatives

Administrators can use the Lexmark Universal Print Driver packages to encourage their organization’s environmental policies. The default queue settings can be modified to include duplex, multi-page printing (N-up), toner darkness, and other resource-saving measures.
