UniPrint Launches UniPrint VDI Edition, the Ultimate Printing Solution for Virtual Environments

UniPrint, the innovative leader in server-based printing solutions, today announced the launch of UniPrint VDI Edition, the ultimate printing solution for virtualized environments. Developed for businesses that deploy a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to both consolidate their system and minimize their network administration, UniPrint VDI Edition expands the capabilities of advanced VDI computing technologies to include printing. This makes printing a seamless experience for the entire workforce -- whether users are working on a fat or thin client from the office, a customer's boardroom, at home, or any other location.

UniPrint VDI Edition is compatible with virtualization solutions from VMware, Citrix Xen, and Microsoft, as well as both 32- and 64-bit architectures. As a result, UniPrint VDI Edition sets a new benchmark in simple, fast, and secure printing for both local and remote users, irrespective of operating system or client device. Built around a Portable Document Format (PDF)-based universal printer driver, UniPrint VDI Edition greatly simplifies system administration by removing the need for multiple manufacturer printer drivers. This instantly eliminates all printer driver incompatibility issues.

UniPrint VDI Edition compresses print document files by over 90 percent by converting them into PDF. This prevents large PCL print formats sent across low bandwidth connections from slowing the print process or even halting application access. Not only does this significantly save bandwidth consumption, but it also makes it simple for users to benefit from enhanced printing functionality, such as the ability to archive, preview or e-mail printed files in PDF.
"While a virtual desktop infrastructure offers organizations many advantages, it also presents critical printing challenges," explained Arron Fu, Vice President, Software Development at UniPrint. "At VMworld, UniPrint will show how its VDI Edition makes it simple for organizations to extend the advantages of the virtual desktop environment to include printing by instantly eliminating both major obstacles -- the printer driver incompatibility and bandwidth consumption issues," Fu continued. "Attendees will also see how UniPrint VDI Edition provides true end-to-end print data protection to make printing from outside the office just as secure as printing from within the office."
UniPrint will demonstrate UniPrint VDI Edition at VMworld 2008 in Las Vegas, U.S.A. from September 15-18 (Booth 755). For additional information on the complete suite of UniPrint products, or to schedule an onsite meeting with a UniPrint representative, please visit the booth, or contact Marisol Lopez at (416) 436-7578 or
