The HP Universal Print Driver is the single driver that gives users access to a range of HP print devices in the office or on the road without downloading separate drivers for every utilized printer. The HP Universal Print Driver works well with a broad range of networked and direct connected HP print products using PCL 5, PCL 6 or PostScript emulation. The UPD installs in Traditional Mode, or Dynamic Mode to enhance mobile printing. Dynamic Mode discovers network printers, or enter a printer name or address and print anywhere on your network. It's great when you're on the road or want to print to a new device but do not have a model specific print driver installed. Traditional Mode is just like a traditional driver. Both modes can be used on the same PC. In addition to the print driver, use the tools in the HP UPD Printer Administrator’s Resource Kit (PARK) to streamline IT tasks, implement printing policies, and optimize your unique imaging and printing environment.
Automatically discover and print to supported HP devices and some non‑HP devices, with a single print driver. When you install the free HP Universal Print Driver (UPD) on a PC or laptop, it communicates with the supported devices to determine the unique print capabilities installed on each device.
You can easily locate and print to another printer within your network - in your current location or when visiting another company location. And the HP UPD allows you to add a new printer at any time - without the hassle of downloading another print driver.
