The device driver associated with the 3 Axis (Webcam) allows for the image capturing hardware to be properly installed in a computer system. Generally, when talking about image capture devices, the computer industry has established a standard for their implementation. This standard is referred to as TWAIN which makes hardware devices like the 3 Axis (Webcam) supported by TWAIN compatible or TWAIN dependent drivers. The role of these device drivers based on the implementation of the TWAIN technology is to provide a dependable link between the image capture application and the hardware itself. Although TWAIN is considered as a public universal standard, each image capturing hardware manufacturer implements its own TWAIN version. What this translates to is non-uniformity in the implementation of the technology. Therefore a TWAIN driver for one image capturing device cannot be substituted to the TWAIN driver of another device especially from a different manufacturer.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Normally, when a device is attached to a computer system, the Plug and Play functionality of the operating system will automatically detect the connection. This will reflect the hardware's presence in the host machine. To make its functionality available to the different software applications the device driver must be installed. The device driver for the 3 Axis (Webcam) will allow it to be used by the image capture applications installed in the computer system including the image capture applet of the operating system. The 3 Axis (Webcam) device driver will instruct the image capture application as to the exact communication port being occupied by the imaging device. The device driver will also be used by the application to calibrate the quality of the display. In most instances the information provided by the hardware driver will include the type of codec that is supported by the device. This will allow for the correct capturing of images or video feeds. The hardware driver can also be used image streaming features over a broadband Internet connection. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and 3 Axis (Webcam) errors before installing any driver updates.
