The Canon PIXUS iP4100 is a photograph printing device which can connect to the host computer system either via Parallel or Universal Serial Bus interface port. This means that the device driver helps the underlying operating system platform to correctly determine which communication port is being used by the attached hardware component. This printing device was manufactured specifically to support the deployment of hardware components that can produce high quality photographs for the home and small office computing environments. The device driver helps to maintain the high quality of the print outs while attempting to successfully complete printing jobs in a faster time. This is made possible by ensuring that the communication link between the Canon PIXUS iP4100 and the host computer system always remains active. This communication link maintained by the device driver allows for a full duplex data transmission that allows for the successful communication of the supported hardware component with its host.

Physically, the design of the Canon PIXUS iP4100 is intended to keep out unnecessary environmental hazards like dusts which may inadvertently affect the performance of the printer heads. The device driver also makes it possible for the computer user to print out labels for Compact Discs and similar optical media. The built-in tray allows the device driver to support the implementation of a direct to CD printing. This process which is supported not only by the device driver but also by a corresponding software application allows the computer user to utilize the printable side of the Compact Disc as the print media. This process is considered faster and a better alternative to printing Compact Disc labels. The Compact Disc tray was specifically designed to implement this functionality. The maximum resolution that can be supported by the device driver is set by the manufacturer at 4800 by 12000 dots per inch.
