Canon Introduces Wide Array of MFPs and Printers Designed to Help Meet the Diverse Needs of Business

MELVILLE, N.Y., March 8, 2017

– Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in
digital imaging solutions, today announced the availability of several new
multifunction and single function printers designed to meet the needs of
businesses, large and small. Available in both color and monochrome models, the
new imageRUNNER ADVANCE and imageCLASS devices provide customers with the
signature dependability and consistent user experience they have come to expect
from Canon, helping organizations to enhance productivity – while addressing a
diverse set of business applications and end user requirements.

Technology is
meant to simplify business, and Canon’s goal is to offer both hardware and
software solutions with a consistent design that helps customers enable their
workforce for maximum efficiency. Along with similar interfaces for consistent
user experience in multi-device installations and integration with uniFLOW,
Canon’s premier output management platform, for greater visibility, control,
and security of office printing across their fleet. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE
models also provide users with powerful scanning and document processing
capabilities through uniFLOW – helping organizations to secure, automate and
simplify paper-intensive business processes.

“As a business optimizes its
fleet, it seeks to maximize return on investment. Yet, an organization is only
as productive as its workers, and an enterprise must focus on both fleet
optimization and individual productivity to reach its goal of improved
efficiency,” said Barbara Richards, senior consultant, InfoTrends. “Regardless
of whether a fleet employs a combination of color, monochrome, multifunction or
single-function technology, for business operations to continue without a
hitch, employees need a familiar experience as they move from device to device.”

“The needs of today’s
businesses can vary greatly across an organization, which is why Canon provides
customers with print technology that offers not only a strong feature set and
solutions platform, but also consistency and coherence across our devices,”
said Toyotsugu Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business
Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Designed for a straightforward
user experience, these new imageRUNNER ADVANCE and imageCLASS models deliver
efficient, adaptable and cost-effective print capability designed to expand


Completing the third generation
imageRUNNER ADVANCE portfolio, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C3530i and
imageRUNNER ADVANCE C3525i models provide enhanced productivity with a small
footprint. Equipped with outstanding scanning capabilities, these new models can
help digitally transform paper intensive environments in markets such as legal,
financial, healthcare, and education. InfoTrends estimates that workers spend
approximately 25 percent of their time at the MFP for the purpose of scanning.1
Providing duplex scanning capabilities nine times faster than predecessor
models, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 3500 Series single-pass duplex scanning can
help reduce the time needed to scan a 50-page duplexed document.

The new
imageRUNNER ADVANCE C355iF/C255iF models are the first A4 models to be
introduced on the award-winning third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform.
Designed with the same user interface, dependability, device security, document
security, and standard workflow features offered by the third generation
imageRUNNER ADVANCE line, these new models provide consistency in user and
management experience across a fleet. This coherence gives customers
flexibility in choosing the right solution for their situation even if they
have limited space requirements, or have environments without a need for A3
size prints.

security and compliance being top priorities for organizations across all
industries, the ability to secure multifunction printers becomes a critical
aspect of an organization’s security plan. Leveraging the feature rich security
capabilities of the third generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform, the new
imageRUNNER ADVANCE models provide robust device and document security
functionality designed to help protect the device, as well as the information
that flows through it, from unauthorized access. When coupled with uniFLOW,
document security is further enhanced through secure pull printing and secure
document scanning.

imageCLASS Models

Today’s businesses, from
hospitals to financial institutions to law offices, require a combination of
equipment that supports the needs of departments, workgroups and individuals. The
imageCLASS LBP312dn (45 ppm black-and-white) printer, Color imageCLASS MF735Cdw
(28 ppm multifunction) printer and Color imageCLASS LBP654Cdw (28 ppm color)
printer offer faster speeds, increased toner cartridge capacities and an
improved user experience, when compared with their predecessors. Additionally,
the MF735Cdw and LBP654Cdw leverage a new device platform called Application Library which empowers users
to create and access their own customized workflows via an easily navigable
remote interface and a new five-inch color touch screen, respectively, to help improve
operational efficiency and control.

The new imageCLASS models expand
the available assortment of desktop-ready Canon printers that can be leveraged
throughout an organization as a complement to more centralized imageRUNNER
ADVANCE equipment. Common optional tools such as the uniFLOW solution, imageWARE
Remote and Canon Managed Document Services can be employed to help manage the
fleet, from optimizing print workflows and security features, to managing
supplies, service and maintenance.

are currently scheduled to be available early spring through authorized Canon

imageCLASS LBP312dn, Color imageCLASS MF735Cdw and Color imageCLASS LBP654Cdw models
