Designed to deliver colored printing functionality using dry electrophotographic technology associated with laser printers, this particular hardware component belongs to the LaserJet product line of laser printers. This specific product line makes use of laser marking engines which are driven by its controllers, firmware, drivers, and other related software applications. It can also be fitted with an EIO hard disk which is an optional component for computer users who prefer to have built-in storage functionality for their device. The device driver for the HP Color LaserJet 4700 controls how the printer engine moves in order to create a final output image. The instructions sent to the printer engine is basically interpreted from the processed information sent from the software application requesting for the printing task. The device driver also handles the communication layer to the supported interface ports which include the parallel, Universal Serial Bus, and accessory ports to host third party printing solutions.
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 HP Color LaserJet 4700 device driver provides the supported hardware component with the necessary functionality to support a number of page description languages. The page description language actually refers to the printer language supported by the printing device. In this instance this particular hardware component can support Printer Control Language 5c and 6 including PostScript emulation and the version 1.4 printing for Portable Document Files. By supporting the Printer Control Language, the printing device makes it possible for the implementation of a cost effective printing solution in practically any type of computing environment. It also provides the necessary infrastructure to initiate bidirectional printing operations as well as scaling of fonts and outputting of vector graphics. The Printer Control Language 5c is responsible for delivering the colored printing technology to the laser printer hardware. The support extended to the PostScript language is in the form of emulation which means that the device driver for the HP Color LaserJet 4700 attempts to mimic the functionalities of native PostScript drivers. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and HP Color LaserJet 4700 errors before installing any driver updates.
