Before the introduction of the PostScript programming language printing devices responded to ASCII based textual inputs. Majority of the technologies that implemented this method were based on the modification of the glyph which was physically difficult. This method took a drastic turn with the introduction of dot matrix printing technology. This technology made use of a series of dots in order to generate the textual or graphical contents on paper. Based on this the PostScript language was born in order to fully exploit all the characteristics of previous technologies but can be applicable to all types of printing hardware components regardless of manufacturer. The implementation of the BR-Script3 technology in the Brother HL-5240 is the market counterpart of the PostScript3 programming language for all printing device from this manufacturer. The device driver also allows the supported hardware component to emulate all specifications of the programming language.
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
To extend its support for the BR-Script3 technology the device driver makes available 66 scalable resident fonts to the installed software applications. Aside from the BR-Script3 the device driver of the Brother HL-5240 also provides emulation for other industry printing language standards like Epson FX-850, IBM Pro-Printer XL, and PCL 6 among others. For the PCL printing language the device driver of the Brother HL-5240 also provides 66 scalable and 12 bitmap resident fonts along with 11 bar codes. Generally the implementation of the device driver for the BR-Script3 technology would depend on the underlying operating system architecture. The device driver may utilize PostScript Printer Description, Graphical Device Interface, or Laser Driver among others. The electrophotgraphic print engine technology applied by this printing hardware generates print resolution anywhere from 300 to 1200 dots per inch. Much like its dot matrix counterpart, this printing device also makes use of dots to represent output data. The difference is that in laser technology the dots are not as pronounced. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Brother HL-5240 BR-Script3 errors before installing any driver updates.
