Designed as a lightweight printing device that can be conveniently deployed in any home or small office computing environment, it is capable of delivering realistic and vibrant colors. The Canon BJC-150 and its corresponding device driver implements a Bubblejet printing technology. Bubblejet is actually the Inkjet printing technology counterpart used by the manufacturer for marketing purposes. The device driver allows for the implementation of a photorealistic printing technology supported by an optional Photo Kit. This allows the computer user to produce photo quality images directly from the computer desktop. The computer user also has the ability to generate a variety of printed media with the use of a bundled software application. The device driver even provides the computer user to directly printout Web contents in an organized and logical manner. This is made possible by the interaction of the device driver with the other subsystems of the host computer system that handles data exchange operations.
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
In computing systems a printer device driver like that of the Canon BJC-150 is generally a type of software application which is responsible for the conversion of the data to be printed out. Essentially every printing device implements a specific data format based on the manufacturer's standard. The device driver makes sure that all data passed on by the software applications conform with the specific format understood by the supported hardware component. The printer device driver must successfully implement all the technical details required to finish a printing job without necessarily involving the computer user. This is done in order to avoid complexity especially for computer users with limited technical know how. The printer device driver is a different entity than the print spoolers which are responsible for the queuing process. The print spooler sends the print jobs directly to the hardware component successively with the help of the printer driver. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon BJC-150 errors before installing any driver updates.
