The Canon iR 6870C EUR PS3 belongs to the ImageRunner printer family which is know for its multifunctional use like the inclusion of printing, faxing, and scanning capabilities among others. This family of printing devices is known for its smart color functionality which allows it to deliver high quality prints. The device driver for this particular print hardware supports all functionalities which are built into the device. The smart color function is achieved mostly with the proper mixing of all basic colors present in the print cartridges. To ensure that the correct color tone is matched the printer hardware relies on the instructions it receives from the software application that issues the print job request. The software application on the other hand relies on the information provided by the device driver to the host operating system platform on how to code print job requests. The completion of this process makes it possible for a computer user to send processed information to the printing device.

This will result in the production of high quality processed images at almost the same quality as what is displayed on the computer screen. Aside from providing basic information to the operating system and storing it in the registry database, the device driver is also responsible for providing the necessary interface among the computer user, the software application, and the printing device. This provides the computer user with complete control over the behavior of the Canon iR 6870C during the printing operation.
