This multipurpose printing device is designed to make use of the latest printing technology developed by its manufacturer. The device driver is filled with instruction sets which allow the host machine to take advantage of the thermal inkjet printing technology built into the hardware component. This feature is supported by the PhotoREt III and color layering techniques which are proprietary technologies implemented by the device manufacturer. The device driver for the HP designjet 120nr provides the underlying operating system to provide a software interface for the color control feature of the supported device. The color control function essentially gives the computer user the necessary interface to control the six cartridges of colors for correct CMYK adjustments. This control panel applet also provides settings for the saturation, color tone, and brightness capabilities of the HP designjet 120nr printer. These tools are important in calibrating the output to match what the color and quality of what is displayed on the computer screen.
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
In terms of calibration the device driver is also responsible for identifying the correct ICC or color profiles that can be supported by the hardware component. These profiles basically define how color shades will be represented during the printing process. The method of calibration gives a distinct advantage to desktop publishing and imaging software applications in terms of graphics rendering. The device driver for the HP designjet 120nr is also responsible for maintaining the communication infrastructure with the host interface connection. These connections can be on a parallel port compliant with the IEEE-1284 standards or the version 1.1 of the Universal Serial Bus interface port at the very least. The device driver also assists the underlying operating system platform to deploy the HP designjet 120nr in a networking environment. This is normally achieved with the use of the HP Jetdirect printer server which hosts an Ethernet cable connection. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and HP designjet 120nr errors before installing any driver updates.
