Connecting the modern workforce
HP introduces the HP Smart Universal Printing Driver (SUPD) with all the benefits of Microsoft®’s modernized Print Architecture, and the capabilities of the HP UPD. It helps reduce the management headaches and associated costs of multiple print drivers. Use the HP Smart Printer Administrator’s Resource Kit (HP Smart PARK) to streamline IT tasks, implement printing policies, and optimize your unique imaging and printing environment.
Improve user productivity and Minimize Manageability for IT
Revolutionize printing to a heterogeneous fleet with the HP SUPD resulting in simple, intuitive, and compelling printing experiences. The HP SUPD is a true single print driver, based on Microsoft XPS driver technology(V4 and V3), that will work with a heterogeneous print fleet from a low-end Inkjet to a LaserJet Pro, a LaserJet Enterprise to a Copier Class device.
You don’t need to consider PDL specific UPD any more. This is a true single driver supporting the entire HP print fleet generating any PDL (PCL6, PS, PCL3, PCLms). Thus, Enterprises can do away with the legacy PDL specific drivers and print queues, thereby saving time, money and effort to maintain and upgrade just a single print driver, the HP SUPD, to print to their entire fleet.
Users are more self-sufficient when the HP SUPD is properly deployed, reducing the need for helpdesk calls, thereby maximizing one’s imaging and printing investment. Even across the most diverse environments, you can support a wide range of users with the HP SUPD’s easy-to-use interface and it's broad architecture support (x86, x64 and ARM).
Familiar look and Feel
Provide a consistent interface across a variety of HP printers, reducing the need for training and support.
Enhanced User Interface for Native and Modern Apps
HP SUPD provides an Enhanced user interface with several new and useful features like integrated Update Now (through Refresh button), "Summary of Changes" section, improved navigation with Search etc for both Native and Modern Applications.
Advanced device functionality
Enables advanced functions on all the printers it supports, such as combined Booklet and N-Up, Image Shift, Tab Printing, Image Watermark, etc.
Print private documents with PIN printing and for added security, choose end-to-end Secure Encrypted Print (SEP) from Windows clients to your HP business products. SEP which actually encrypts the content can be used over any channel/transport and be secure.
HP SUPD will be part of the Windows Update through which users, if required, can receive the latest driver automatically. Since HP SUPD is a single driver across HP fleet, a newer version of HP SUPD released for supporting a new product on any segment, would support all the previously supported products as well.

Secure Encrypted Print (SEP)
Need to print sensitive documents?
The HP SUPD provides true symmetric AES256 print job encryption and decryption from the client to the page based on a user-defined password using a FIPS 140 validated cryptographic module from Microsoft. Both the key and the job are encrypted and stored on the printer until they are released by the user. It can be used over any channel/transport and be secure.
It’s simple to use Secure Encrypted Print:
At your Windows client, open the document and select “Print”. Open the Printing preferences, select "Secure encrypted" in Print Mode feature. Enter a unique password, and click “OK”.
The HP SUPD encrypts both the key and the job before sending it to the HP printer where it is stored.
At the printer, select your job, enter the unique password you created earlier, and select “Print”.
Why the HP Smart UPD?
The HP SUPD eliminates the need for separate print drivers and dramatically simplifies printing management. It can be deployed in a wide variety of ways, providing the versatility to meet your specific needs. There are many reasons to deploy a single driver solution throughout your organization. A single Universal Print Driver that prints to a heterogeneous fleet:
- •Improve user productivity
- •Reduced time spent on certification
- •Decreased help desk activity
- •Greater IT control through support for IT management of Home and Office printers
- •Enhanced IT efficiency
While many solutions exist, none are as flexible and feature-rich as the HP SUPD that is the path forward printing solution for the new platform of Windows. In the single file download, the HP Smart PARK contains software tools, scripts and documentation to deploy and manage print queues of SUPD.
