The Xerox Phaser 6180MFP Scanner multifunction device provides users with the ability to scan, print, fax and copy. It makes use of a PS or PostScript driver which is a page description language (PDL) used mostly for desktop and electronic publishing purposes. Laser printer devices combine advanced functions of both plotters and printers. Laser printers provide superior quality line art and can produce pages of raster graphics and text. They are likewise capable of positioning both text and graphics on a single page. The PostScript PDL made it possible to completely utilize the said features by providing a control language that is compatible with any printer brand. A host of applications are capable of transforming a document into a PostScript program with its execution resulting in the original document. This PostScript program can then be sent to a printer’s interpreter which will result in a document that is printed, or to another one inside some other application that can exhibit it on the screen. Because the program-document is the same in spite of their destinations, it is independent of the device.
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
This PostScript driver used by the Xerox Phaser 6180MFP Scanner multifunction device can also implement rasterization on the fly. All elements, including the text can be specified in terms of cubic curves and straight lines which enable random rotating and scaling among others. Once the PostScript program has been interpreted, the interpreter will be responsible for converting instructions into dots required to produce the output. It is because of this that PostScript interpreters are also called PostScript RIPs or raster image processors. A raster image processor is a printing system component that can create a raster image or bitmap. This produced bitmap image will then be sent to the printer. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Xerox Phaser 6180MFP Scanner errors before installing any driver updates.
