Features of the Printer Driver

UFR II Printer Driver:
Using the UFR II printer driver, the various data processing tasks conventionally executed within the printer are appropriately divided between the host PC and the printer to greatly reduce the overall printing time. The workload can be delegated to match the output data, thus realizing a significant increase in speed through optimization.
PS Printer Driver:
The PS printer driver converts print data from applications into data for use with PS printers, and sends it to the printer.
As well as converting print data, it can also enable you to configure settings relating to finishing and detailed settings such as color adjustment, and provides an appropriate print environment for desktop publishing and publishing on demand.
