Designed to support the version 2.0 of the Universal Serial Bus interface port, the device driver for the Canon iX4000 allows for the fastest possible transfer of textual and graphics contents from the host computer system to the printing device. The installation of the correct device driver will also ensure that the software applications will have convenient access to the 4800 by 1200 dots per inch maximum resolution capability of the printing device. In a sense the device driver is partially responsible for controlling the amounts of ink drops produced by the hardware component which is based on the inkjet printing technology. The control panel applet provided by the device driver allows the computer user to dictate certain settings for the final output such as page margins, paper size, and even print quality. The Canon iX4000 can be configured to handle borderless printing up to 329mm.
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
Newer device drivers like those used for the Canon iX4000 makes the hardware both operational and functional. One of the newer technologies embedded into this printing hardware is the PictBridge method which allows imaging devices that support the technology to carry out direct printing by plugging into the corresponding port on the hardware. In the same manner the device driver handles the communication between the printer hardware and the host machine using the Universal Serial Bus interface. In terms of communication layers the device driver allows the software applications installed in the host computer system to efficiently relay instructions to the printing device. This makes it possible for the incorporation of various control sets for the Canon iX4000 into the menu commands of software applications that require printing capabilities. This also allows for the activation of the print preview function of the program.
