Definition: IPDS

(Intelligent Printer Data Stream) The native format built into IBM laser printers, which accepts fonts and formatted raster images. One of its major functions is its communications protocol that negotiates printer transfers from servers in the network that perform the rasterization. IBM used to make only IPDS printers, but later added native PostScript and PCL support. See PSF and AFP.
