The Canon BJC-4400 is an imaging device that is connected to a host computer system to deliver the functionality of converting paper bound document into their digital counterparts. Essentially the functionality of the Canon BJC-4400 allows for any hard copy material that can be accommodated on its flatbed scanning surface to be converted into a digital image file. The device driver plays an important role in the conversion process as it supports not only the components of the scanning hardware but also that of the host computer system. The device driver is partly responsible for implementing a communication framework that will allow the supported hardware component to communicate with its host machine. The communication link between the two hardware components is considered a full duplex connection. This means that the host computer system can send commands to the scanning device and in return the scanner can 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
A scanner basically falls under the classification of an imaging device. Like majority of imaging devices the Canon BJC-4400 is also compliant to the TWAIN standards. TWAIN essentially defines the interface standard for two of the most widely used operating system platforms in the computer desktop industry, the Microsoft Windows and the Mac OS. This specification as supported by the device driver provides a way for the imaging device to communicate with an image processing software application. This means that the bundled imaging program of the device driver as well as other image editing software applications can make use of the functionalities of the scanning hardware component. A computer user can therefore initiate a scanning process on the Canon BJC-4400 device from within the working environment of the imaging program. Before TWAIN was adopted every image acquisition hardware component had its proprietary program which made it very difficult for computer users to implement a standard process. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon BJC-4400 Scanner errors before installing any driver updates.
