GDI printer
Last modified: Thursday, August 30, 2001 

A printer that has built-in support for Windows Graphical Device Interface (GDI). GDI is used by most Windows applications to display images on a monitor, so when printing from a Windows application to a GDI printer, there is no need to convert the output to another format such as PostScript or PCL.

GDI printers are sometimes called host-based printers because they rely on the host computer to rasterize pages.
