This is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. Post Script can be used by a wide variety of computers and printers and is the dominant format used for desktop publishing. Here are a few common emulation command formats: I ran into these two while looking for a printer driver, and I haven’t been able to determine which is best for my needs. So if you have thousands of printers and a small pipe, clearly the way to go. Relying on the printer to do the rasterising usually results in identical print output from various drivers on various platforms, which most people consider a “win”. Switching the driver to raster, causes the rasterisation to occur on the PC and usually fixes the grey scale issues.

GDI printers are the ones that always cause people issues when they upgrade OS’s or switch to using a MAC or Linux because while they may be occasionally supported they most often are not.
If you need assistance determining the proper format to use, please email us at support okidata. Cool new feature, in Windows Server you can force the rendering on the client gci your windows print share server some cycles.
The following information is provided as is, and the authors take no responsibility for the correctness.
PS psl create print jobs that are staggeringly huge, consumes loads of network traffic, but This phenomena is usually exacerbated on printers with less the MB of ram. I avoid them like the plague and would only use a PCL or Postscript printer because while you pxl lose some high level functionality if you have to use a different driver you should always be able to print to kr whereas with a GDI printer you are SOL if you don’t have an exact driver for your Prl. In ram limited printers, host based print processors are usually at least twice as fast to finished output as PCL or PS.
I ran into these two while looking for a printer driver, and I haven’t been able to determine which is best for my needs. Cause the RIP process in the printer goes terribly, terribly wrong. Course I pretty much work with monochrome printers, so there you go. Aug 14, Posts: In the case of Postscript drivers, in my experience not that broad, fair enoughthe vector is only rasterised on the printer.
I hear some OEMs will start embedding XPS into the rip process on the printers sometime soon too, or maybe MS is just tooting a non existent, as far as I can tell, horn. Thu Apr 21, 4: So if you have thousands of printers and a small pipe, clearly the way vdi go. Ars Legatus Legionis et Subscriptor.
Might be worth telling us the make and model of the printer. Mar 12, Posts: Here are a few common emulation command formats: PS drivers are without a doubt, the slowest drivers in existence. Shorthand for P rinter C ontrol L anguage, this defines a standard set of commands enabling programs to communicate with HP or HP-compatible devices.
Also available for double-byte Asian languages.

Post Script can be used by a wide variety of computers and printers and is the dominant format used for desktop publishing. If the file to gd printed contains an EPS-embedded file, only a Post Script printer can render it correctly.
One thing worth mentioning in favor of gdi or “host based print processors”, the rasterising of the images also occurs on the PC as opposed to in the printer’s print server resulting in smaller jobs, less network traffic, and speedier, MUCH speedier print jobs. Mon Apr 25, 6: Printers use a set of operating commands that determine how data sent from the computer is interpreted and acted upon.
Printer Language Comprehensive Emulation Tests CETs validate your printer’s emulation compatibility with industry standards by thoroughly testing each command in the emulation.
Switching the driver to raster, causes the rasterisation to occur on the PC and usually fixes the grey scale issues.
