This particular imaging hardware component belongs to the Coolpix product line which is designed to provide not only digital still camera functionality but also video capture abilities. The device driver for this imaging component makes it possible to connect it to a host computer system via the Universal Serial Bus interface port. The imaging hardware component is also capable of supporting the PictBridge technology which allows the digital camera to implement image printing directly without necessarily interfacing with a host computer system. This technology was intended to make the printing of digital pictures easier by connecting the imaging device directly to the Universal Serial Bus interface port of the printer hardware. This process however is only made possible if both hardware components support the technology. The imaging device also needs to remain constantly powered on during the duration of the printing process.
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
When connected to a host computer system via the Universal Serial Bus interface port the computer user gains the flexibility of retrieving stored images. The saved images and video files can then be stored in the local hard drive and subjected to post processing routines prior to printing. The device driver also makes it possible for the host operating system and the installed software applications to correctly interpret the imaging format used by the hardware component. Consistent with majority of TWAIN compliant imaging devices this particular hardware component also implements a certain degree of proprietary technology which is intended to make its output slightly better. Since this imaging device stores digital still image, video, and audio data the host computer system must have the necessary codec information in order to correctly open the files with the right software applications. Essentially this imaging device makes use of JPEG, QuickTime, and WAV file formats. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and DSC 4200 Video Digital Camera errors before installing any driver updates.
