Konica Minolta's Universal Print Driver is a powerful new print solution that increases print productivity and reduces administrative costs by offering a single printer driver for all devices. Just select, set up, and print.
Konica Minolta's Universal Print Driver eliminates the need to access printer drivers on each device.
One common interface handles printer selection throughout your network, automatically detecting and identifying printers and MFPs. You can select your printer by device type, colour or B/W printing, 2-sided printing capability and A3 (11" × 17") printing— a capability that no other universal printer driver currently offers.
The Universal Print Driver automatically loads the correct printer driver set for each model: Emperon PCL/PS drivers for Konica Minolta devices using the powerful Emperon Print system, and PCL6/PCL-XL (2.1 or later) and PostScript (level 3) drivers for compatible 3rd-party devices.
Leveraging the output speed and finishing power of your bizhub MFPs as well as magicolor, pagepro and 3rd-party networked devices, Konica Minolta's Universal Print Driver drives the process with effortless ease. You'll see detailed information on each device — including name, location, output speed, IP address, MAC address, model number, colour or B/W capability, and PDL (Printer Description Language) supported.
And when you're ready to print, the latest Konica Minolta devices give you another timesaving feature to speed up your output: the industry award-winning convenience of MyTab printing*, allowing individuals to create a customised tab that saves their preferred print settings for quick access.
With a simple Network Search command, the Universal Print Driver detects and identifies all the print devices on your network.
You'll see individual printers represented by icons and text descriptions, with the key information listed in your MIB — model name, output speed, location and IP address. Advanced Search settings allow you to narrow your search for types of printers, colour capability, 2-sided or A3 (11" × 17") printing capabilities.
The Universal Print Driver combines multiple printer drivers to meet the needs of even complex networks comprising new and legacy devices from several manufacturers. Individual Child Drivers connect to model-specific Konica Minolta MFPs. Common Child Drivers connect to other Konica Minolta models and 3rd-party devices.
Most recent Konica Minolta MFPs will enjoy full print functionality. Older Konica Minolta devices and 3rd-party printers will have basic functionality. And all devices will benefit from automatic detection and identification – an important timesaving benefit that every IT professional will appreciate.

With a Universal Print Driver to optimise the speed and convenience of network printing, your IT administrators, individual MFP and printer users and even temporary employees can be more productive — because finding, selecting and setting up devices will be faster and simpler.
Your IT administrators will no longer have to install drivers for each device added to your network. There's no need to test functions. Basic functions can be performed without installing specified drivers — and a common interface reduces the need for operator familiarisation or training.
You'll also have the capability to display a history of recently connected printers and MFPs, add and edit information on each device and create printer icons for quick identification.
The result? Speedy output, saved time, and reduced administrative costs. To drive your productivity, Konica Minolta's Universal Print Driver can provide a big advantage.
