The device can capture raw images and fingerprints that are almost distorted. The images are then recorded to the host PC. This is done in speeds of 100 milliseconds per minute, with the assistance of fingerprint recognition programs. The driver is installed when the device is first connected to the host PC. It communicates the capabilities and functions of the device to the host computer, which then lays the necessary measures that allows the host computer and the device to work harmoniously.
