The deployment of this printing device is based on a number of proprietary technologies that have been the product of the manufacturer's extended research efforts. The device driver for the Canon LBP5100 allows for the implementation of the On-Demand Fixing Technology which makes it possible to immediately transfer heat so that the printing process can automatically begin. This not only minimizes energy consumption but also implements a no waiting time policy. Another important technology that is supported by the device driver is the Canon Advanced Printing Technology which allows for the harnessing of the host computer system's processing power in completing printing jobs. This means there is no need to upgrade memory modules built into the hardware component because of the support from the underlying operating system platform. It also translates to a quicker release time of the hardware resources making the completion of the printing process faster.
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 device driver supports the new printing engine of the hardware component which is believed to have one of the shortest paper pass in its category. The implementation of the automatic duplexing technology also results in lesser resource wastage and effectively cuts down the required printing time. The Canon LBP5100 printing hardware also implements the High Speed Compression Architecture technology. This method supported by the manufacturer provided device driver results in a better compression of the processed data to be printed. What happens is that the data processed by the software application is sent faster to the printing hardware with minimal margins for errors. Aside from supporting its basic Universal Serial Bus interface port connection the device driver for the Canon LBP5100 also allows for the provision of an optional network board. This feature will convert the printer hardware into a fully networkable machine that can effectively handle multiple simultaneous print job requests. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Canon LBP5100 errors before installing any driver updates.
