Universal Printing with Parallels® Remote Application Server enables a user to print on the local client while connected to Microsoft Remote Desktop Services (RDS) or hypervisors such as Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, and VMware EXSi.
Ready out-of-the-box and easy to use, Parallels RAS Universal Printing increases printing performance and response time when employees use local printers with server-based desktops or virtual applications. Clients can print directly to their local printers from the session without any extra configurations.
Parallels RAS offers a variety of different features that enable administrators to successfully integrate printing into almost every deployment scenario.
By choosing the most appropriate printing configuration for their organization, IT administrators can significantly improve and simplify the user experience when it comes to printing.
Parallels RAS Universal Printing sets printer defaults on the server side according to printer settings on a mobile device or local computer. To be universal, Parallels RAS substitutes the native printer preferences dialog with a custom one, which contains a common set of configuration parameters such as page layout, paper size, collate, duplex, color, paper tray output, and print quality.
