This driver for the Canon LBP-2000 printer device is a PCL 5e (enhanced) driver. The PCL printer language was developed by Hewlett Packard (HP). This language provides an efficient and economical way for applications to handle a wide array of printer functions across numerous printer devices. The PCL 5e used by the Canon LBP-2000 printer device represents a novel breakthrough in performance/price leadership since its features were carefully selected in response to the requests of customers. Hewlett Packard will further continue to improve on the PCL language to provide users with robust technological advances. The commands used by PCL are compact escape series codes embedded in the data stream of print tasks. This approach is capable of minimizing both the command decoding and data transmission overhead. In addition, the fonts and formatters of PCL are developed to rapidly translate the output of applications into raster print and device specific images.
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
The PCL 5e standard utilized by the Canon LBP-2000 printer device provides commonality from one printer device to another printer device which aids in minimizing problems with printer support and protecting consumer investment in printer driver and application software. The PCL 5e was introduced in October 1992 on the Hewlett Packard LaserJet 4. In addition to the existing features of PCL, HP added bi-directional communication among the computer system and the printer device and Windows fonts. The Print Model feature of PCL enables characters and images to be filled with the printer device’s pre-determined cross hatch or shading patterns, or user determined patterns. Images can include any character/s chosen from a font, a fill area in the rectangular shape, or a raster graphics. The operation of a print model specifically defines a destination image, source image and a pattern. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon LBP-2000 PCL5e errors before installing any driver updates.
