The device driver of the Agfa StudioScan is used for its calibration in an attempt to standardize all output devices. Essentially all hardware components are designed by their manufacturers to support and implement specific color profiles. The role of the device driver of this hardware component is to assist in looking for a median that will allow all output devices to generate the same level of colors and shades. This process is used to support the What You See Is What You Get functionality. In this instance the color shade generated by the scanning process as it is displayed on the computer monitor should appear in almost the same quality when the computer user attempts to output it on a printing device. The device driver makes this possible by identifying the specific color profiles that is being implemented by each hardware component.
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
Essentially since the Agfa StudioScan is an external hardware component that connects to an interface port of the host computer system, one of the roles of the device driver is to establish a communication infrastructure on this communication port. The communication layer created on the interface port supports a two way data traffic to and from the host computer system and the attached hardware component. The device driver implements a scanning process based on the specifications of the computer user. The specifications are based on the settings declared by the computer user on the software interface control panel of the Agfa StudioScan device. The device driver likewise makes use of the communication layer to retrieve the current status of the scanning hardware. This is normally done to ensure that the supported hardware component is in ready status before instructions are sent to it. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Agfa StudioScan errors before installing any driver updates.
