The Avision 5100 is an imaging device which is capable of converting paper based documents into their digital counterpart. The process of digitizing the documents creates an image file which is normally stored in the local hard drive of the host computer system. Since the output file is already digital in nature the computer user can readily load it into any image editing software application to apply post processing effects if necessary. Normally the resulting file makes use of the BMP or JPG image file format. The device driver of the Avision 5100 makes sure that the host computer system can effectively communicate with the attached device. The communication layer provided by the device driver is what makes it possible for the underlying operating system architecture to send commands and instructions directly to the attached hardware component. In the same manner, the Avision 5100 makes use of the communication layer to send alerts and notifications to the host computer system.
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
Like most imaging devices the Avision 5100 hardware component is also compliant to the TWAIN standards that cover most devices in this class. The device driver also activates certain feature sets that provide the computer user with more flexibility when dealing with paper based documents or images. The device driver of the Avision 5100 also supports the Optical Character Recognition technology. This particular technology allows the scanned document to be represented in its digital format not as an image file but a normal text file that can be accessed using conventional word processing software applications. The role of the imaging device and its corresponding device driver in this context is that it attempts to recognize the letters on the source document and represent them in their digital format by reconstructing the received signal. This is made possible by using a standard database file that serves as the reference for the evaluation of the scanned images. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Avision 5100 errors before installing any driver updates.
