GDI OR PDL PRINTER DRIVER

In theory, a vector should be better than a raster, but in my experience, it’s just not the case, raster beats vector, every time for speed and grey scales. I avoid them like the plague and would only use a PCL or Postscript printer because while you might lose some high level functionality if you have to use a different driver you should always be able to print to them whereas with a GDI printer you are SOL if you don’t have an exact driver for your OS. PS drivers are without a doubt, the slowest drivers in existence. 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. Also available for double-byte Asian languages. Here are a few common emulation command formats:

Usually, PCL has a cool little settings, where they straddle both models, one where you rasterise on the computer itself Raster setting pginter the driverand two, where the vector drawing is rasterised on the printer’s print server GL2 setting in the driver.

The following information is provided as is, and the authors take no responsibility for the correctness. Sun May 08, 3: Functional Test Suites FTSs verify major functions of your emulation, as a prl check before running a CET, to verify minor firmware upgrades, or as a cost-effective final check.

So if you have thousands of printers and a small pipe, clearly prijter way to go. I avoid them like the plague and would only use a PCL or Postscript printer because while you might lose some high level functionality if you have to use a different driver you should always be able to print to them whereas with a GDI printer you are SOL gdii you don’t have an exact driver for your OS.

PageSense automates printer performance testing and provides standardized results. Each format has its own unique purpose. Printer Language Comprehensive Emulation Tests CETs validate your printer’s emulation compatibility with industry standards by thoroughly testing each command in the emulation. Course I pretty much work with monochrome printers, so there you go. GDI printers are also known as win printers.

They contain only a rudimentary processor and rely on the host based driver to do their layout work. Also available pribter double-byte Asian languages.

This is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems. Thu Apr 21, 4: This is where you’re using a Orr or PCL driver and relying on the printer’s built in “RIP process” to changed the graphic elements from vectors to bitmaps. In the case of Postscript drivers, in my experience not that broad, fair enoughthe vector is only rasterised on the printer.

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”.
