Improved efficiency, security and cost savings for enterprises
imageRUNNER ADVANCE, Canon’s successful next generation imaging platform, is available on 32 models following the launch in 2009. A number of these devices have since won industry awards, including BERTL and BLI ‘Winter Picks’ awards in 2011. To date, more than 170,000 imageRUNNER ADVANCE¹ units have been sold in Europe and more than 440,000 worldwide, for use in small offices up to large corporate reprographics departments.
The new additions to Canon’s smart multi-function range, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4025i, 4035i, 4045i and 4051i, provide a greater choice of A3 print speeds, from 25, 35 and 45ppm, including a new high-speed 51ppm printer.
imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000 series benefits from simple and seamless integration into customer environments as well as with core software solutions, such as uniFLOW, Therefore and e-Copy. This makes the new MFDs ideal for busy workgroups and smaller departments within enterprises of all sizes, which require high quality black-and-white A3 printing with improved efficiency, security, cost savings and reduced environmental impact.
Assisting productivity in the workplace, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000 series allows for easy operation at the device with an intuitive and customisable 21.3cm SVGA colour touch-screen. Processing larger jobs is quick and efficient with duplex scanning, flexible media handling and a maximum paper capacity of up to 4980 sheets. Advanced finishing options also make producing quality printed materials in-house even easier. With the ability to integrate tightly with a range of capture and document management software solutions, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000 series can improve the efficiency of the complete document workflow process.
Controlling and reducing print costs is easy with the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000 series. The new MFDs integrate with uniFLOW to provide the ability to assign cost centres, set restrictions, re-direct print jobs and set up detailed tracking and reporting, to carefully manage print costs.
Enhanced security, allowing businesses to have extra control over the way that sensitive information is handled and printed, is also possible through uniFLOW Data Loss Prevention (DLP). In addition, authentication options, secure print, mailbox and address filtering, as well as encryption and other security hardening options ensure businesses can meet important compliance requirements, which is particularly important for insurance, financial and legal professions.
The new MFDs have also been designed to help businesses to reduce their environmental impact. Featuring recycled materials and bio plastics, the efficient devices use as little as 1 watt in sleep mode to reduce energy use. They feature low Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC)² ratings and are ENERGY STAR® qualified.
Matthew Wrighton, Office Imaging Product Management & Strategy, Canon Europe, adds: “With the addition of the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices, Canon now provides a complete portfolio of A3 multifunctional devices which provide our customers with extra choice on speed, price and functionality with broad integration, to suit the specific needs of any business.”
“The success of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE range has been proven through the high level of demand we have seen from our customers, which is illustrated by our strong share of the A3 black-and-white market, which reached 21% in Q4 2011³. We are delighted to be adding a new high-speed device to the range with the 51ppm imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4051i, which will continue to help businesses to be more productive whilst producing high-quality results.”
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000 series will be available from May 2012.
