New Monochrome Series

    
               New Models Deliver Advanced Workflow Technology
           And End-User Efficiency In A Compact, Eco-Friendly MFP
    

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Continuing to build upon the exceptional, full-service imageRUNNER ADVANCE document platform unveiled last year, Canon Canada Inc., a leader in advanced digital document imaging, today introduced the monochrome imageRUNNER ADVANCE 8000 Series and 6000 Series of powerful multifunctional systems. Offering a seamless blend of hardware, software and services initially deployed in the award-winning imageRUNNER ADVANCE Colour models, the new black-and-white models deliver improved image quality, exceptional output speeds, enhanced workplace efficiency and the bottom-line results critical for success in today's competitive business environment.

"The new Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE Series are advanced document management systems that increase workplace efficiency for organizations seeking to contain costs and increase profitability," said Mason Olds, Senior Vice President of the Imaging Systems Group at Canon Canada Inc. "Featuring innovative hardware and carefully engineered software applications that target light production and high-volume office environments, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE lineup allows businesses to increase office productivity while managing costs across a broad range of document-related activities."

imageRUNNER ADVANCE 8000 Series

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE 8105/8095/8085 models deliver exceptional output quality and speed, flexible paper handling options and robust finishing solutions with Canon's renowned reliability. Leveraging the capabilities of the Advanced imageCHIP system architecture, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 8000 Series models offer the power and functionality necessary to meet the evolving demands of light production environments including central reproduction departments, in-plant facilities and print service providers requiring monochrome letter-sized output speeds of up to 105 pages per minute (ppm)/ 95 ppm/ 85ppm (Letter) for the 8105/8095/8085, respectively.

Further increasing the value of the new models is the capability for fast colour scanning. A standard, single-pass duplex scanning unit enables these devices to capture both sides of a two-sided original in a single pass, while delivering scan speeds of up to 200 images-per-minute (ipm) black-and-white and 100 ipm in colour at 300 dots-per-inch (dpi) (Letter).

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE 8105/8095/8085 models feature a maximum paper capacity of up to 7,700 sheets and are equipped to handle up to 80 lb. cover media and paper sizes up to 13 x 19.25-inches. Coupled with its flexible media capabilities, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 8000 Series delivers improved productivity by performing finishing functions previously reserved for dedicated production units. High-volume capabilities including multiple folding options, professional punching, post-process document insertion and face-trimming booklets can be retained in-house without the need for a separate device, delivering significant cost efficiencies.

In addition to light production environments, a revolutionary 120-volt power requirement and space-saving footprint offer greater device placement flexibility and help make the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 8000 Series an ideal choice for high-volume offices seeking greater speed and productivity.

imageRUNNER ADVANCE 6000 Series

With output speeds of up to 75ppm, 65ppm, and 55ppm (Letter), respectively, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 6075/6065/6055 models allow high-volume corporate environments to harness the capabilities of an advanced MFP solution to address their particular document workflow requirements. The elegant, compact imageRUNNER ADVANCE 6075/6065/6055 models deliver powerful performance including rapid print, copy and colour scan functionality as well as the ability to effectively manage documents and produce finished output, boosting productivity and reducing costs. As with the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 8000 Series, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 6000 Series models include a powerful high-speed single pass duplex scanning unit.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE 6075/6065/6055 models also feature a maximum paper capacity of up to 7,700 sheets and can support up to 80 lb. Cover media, while handling paper sizes up to 11 x 17-inch. High-volume office environments utilizing the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 6000 Series can enjoy flexible in-line finishing capabilities such as multi-position stapling, booklet-making, post-process document insertion and C/Z- folding capabilities.

Advance Simplicity

Similar to the imageRUNNER ADVANCE Colour models, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 8000 Series and 6000 Series monochrome models employ a host of new technologies designed to improve the end-user experience while also streamlining workplace efficiency. In addition to the space-saving imageRUNNER ADVANCE design profile, the new models incorporate a Full Colour SVGA TFT Control Panel, with a customizable user interface, Main Menu keys for easy access to popular functions and a Quick Menu key to help simplify workflow and share frequently used jobs or functions within a workgroup using one-touch buttons. Also included on all models is remote notification of low-supply inventory and "on-the-fly" paper or toner replacement, ensuring that high-volume jobs can run without interruption.

Advance Quality

The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE models utilize "pO" toner in conjunction with the 8 beam laser technology employed in Canon's black-and-white imagePRESS line to faithfully reproduce detailed images and text, display ultra-smooth gradations and ensure toner is evenly distributed across the page throughout the entire print run. For detail-oriented projects, the new models also provide true 1,200 x 1,200 dpi resolution and Auto Gradation Adjustment for smooth, accurate, consistent output.

Advance Workflow

With a new design and improved technologies featured throughout the imageRUNNER ADVANCE lineup, the inclusion of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE Essentials package gives device managers an additional level of functionality and customization. Utilizing the components of imageRUNNER ADVANCE Essentials, device or fleet administrators are able to streamline their document workflow and maintain higher levels of monitoring and device control, which are critical aspects of light production and high-volume office environments seeking to improve efficiency and reduce overall document management costs. Additionally, all new models support Canon's MEAP technology, allowing for greater integration with customer's business processes and with leading third-party software applications.

Advance Responsibility

Guided by our corporate philosophy of kyosei, Canon has a long-standing commitment to the environment, green technology and reducing carbon footprints through every phase of the product lifecycle. Through its Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) System, Canon has lowered CO(2) emissions by focusing on each stage of the product lifecycle, including manufacturing, energy-use and logistics. All imageRUNNER ADVANCE models employ certain components fabricated with 100 percent recycled plastics from retired products as well as bio-based plastics - a plant-derived compound that replaces certain petroleum-based plastic parts. In addition, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE models have a low-energy consumption of 1 watt or less in Sleep Mode and exceed the European Union RoHS Directive standards.
