The AV260CS scanner device is capable of analyzing an image and processing the image in some way. Text and image capture (OCR or optical character recognition) enable users to save information to files saved on the computer. The saved information can then be enhanced or altered, printed out or utilized on a Web page. In general, scanner parts include a CCD (charged coupled device) array, mirrors, scan head, glass plate, lamp, lens, cover, filters, stepper motor, stabilizer bar, belt, power supply, interface ports, and a control circuitry. A scanner’s main component is the CCD array. It is the most widely used technology for capturing images via a scanner device. It is a collection of miniscule diodes (photosites) that are light sensitive, which converts photons or light into electrons or electrical charge. Every photosite is light sensitive. The electrical charge will be greater for photosites that are hit by brighter light. The image of a scanned document can reach the CCD array via a series of lenses, filters and mirrors.
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
A software driver is utilized by the AV260CS scanner device for communicating with its host computer system. Virtually all scanner devices speak the TWAIN language. The driver for TWAIN is capable of acting as an interpreter among applications that has support for the scanner and the TWAIN standard. In this setup, an application needing the scanner’s functions is not required to have specific knowledge pertaining to the scanner device for it to have direct access to the scanner. As an example, users can opt to obtain an image coming from the scanner from within the application Adobe Photoshop since this application has full support for the TWAIN standard. The AV260CS also comes bundled with a scanning utility software and an image editing application. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AV260CS errors before installing any driver updates.
