Web cameras are considered not only as imaging devices but also as input hardware components. This is primarily because the device drivers for these particular types of hardware components are designed to provide the computer user with a way of capturing still images as well as streaming video data across high speed Internet connections. As a result they can be readily incorporated into majority of communication programs that are used in the computer industry. The functionality of these TWAIN compliant hardware devices are activated once the manufacturer provided device driver is installed into the host computer system. This will allow the underlying operating system environment to correctly identify its presence and make its feature sets available to the various installed software applications. When correctly installed in the host machine the Monitor Integrated Webcam can be used the same way as a standalone Webcam which is during video conferencing, chatting, or recording of video which can be sent via electronic mail.
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 main difference between the Monitor Integrated Webcam and the standalone version is only the manner of deployment. For the standalone Webcam it is considered as more flexible because it can be moved around and be attached to different computer systems. For the Monitor Integrated Webcam however, unless the computer monitor itself is transferred it remains predominantly stationary. The device driver for this particular hardware component is normally bundled with the device driver for the computer monitor. Consistent with the device driver for the standalone Webcam the device driver of this hardware component provides a communication layer that is used by the operating system to deliver a user interface. The user interface plays host to the control panel applet that allows the computer user to set various configuration values for the different attributes of the supported device. These values will dictate the behavior of the hardware component at runtime. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Monitor Integrated Webcam errors before installing any driver updates.
