The HP Digital Imaging Monitor allows a user to monitor the stats of his or her HP printer. The imaging monitor is part of the printer's software.
When one installs the software for his or her HP printer, the HP Digital Imaging Monitor installs automatically. It gives the user information about the printer, such as ink levels, and it sends an alert when the machine is out of paper. The digital imaging monitor can also be configured so the user can scan documents from the printer and save them directly on the computer. The program can be uninstalled. Doing so, however, limits one's use of the printer.
