This driver version for the Panasonic DP-3010 PCL6 printer is the PCL 6 driver. PCL 6 is a PDL or page description language created by Hewlett Packard. This page description language has 3 main components. The 1st component is the PCL 6 Enhanced, which has been improved for printing from GUIs or graphical user interfaces such as Microsoft Windows operating systems. The 2nd component is the PCL 6 standard which offers full backward compatibility with the older HP printers and other printers using the PCL page description language. On the other hand, the 3rd component is the Font Synthesis. This improved PCL 6 or PCL XL driver is capable of providing improved performance and WYSIWYG support over the PCL 5e driver. The PCL XL is a new HP PDL that is a component of PCL 6. It is much closer to the graphics device interface or GDI that is used by a lot of applications. Fewer translations take place in the driver which translates to heightened WYSIWYG functionalities and enhanced performance.
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 PCL 6 commands implemented in the Panasonic DP-3010 PCL6 printer device are developed to optimally equal the requirements of graphics printing for applications that are GUI based. In almost all instances, for each graphics print command that a GUI wants to execute, there is an equal PCL 6 command. This in turn decreases the amount of commands needed to define a graphics page. Every PCL 6 command is developed to require decreased data transfer coming from the host computer system to the printer which results in the decreased number of data needed to define a page. This PCL 6 driver version for the Panasonic DP-3010 PCL6 printer device makes use of the improved PCL 6 commands that have been enhanced for printing operations requiring complex graphics pages. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Panasonic DP-3010 PCL6 errors before installing any driver updates.
