New generation laser printer with improved integration
Anil Jagpal, European Marketing Manager for Laser, Business Imaging Group, Canon Europe says, “No two organisations’ print and imaging demands are the same. In fact, requirements can vary wildly between teams, functions and roles. A balanced deployment, which includes devices of different functionalities and sizes, is the most effective way to address an organisation’s specific output and capture requirements. Our new generation of smart laser printers play a central role in our ability to provide a balanced print solution to suit the needs of any business.”
Following the successful launch of a new generation of laser printers in 2011, with the colour laser i-SENSYS LBP7680Cx and LBP7660Cdn, Canon has developed the new black and white i-SENSYS LBP6600 series. Built on a consistent architecture with Canon’s imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform, the i-SENSYS LBP6680x and LBP6670dn provide many of the same high-level imaging features normally associated with the imageRUNNER ADVANCE range, such as support for Adobe PostScript.
Compatibility with uniFLOW, the industry’s first single platform to manage print and scanning processes, allows organisations to effectively manage their print processes. Print costs can be controlled and managed through cost management features, which include print accounting.
Advanced integration with the LBP6680x
Advanced integration is made possible through embedded MEAP technology on the i-SENSYS LBP6680x. Enhanced security features, such as secure release, user authentication at the device and job selection; provide controlled access to sensitive documents and information.
Enterprise-level functionality with i-SENSYS LBP6680x and LBP6670dn
The i-SENSYS LBP6680x and LBP6670dn also bring high-level print functionality to small workgroups and small businesses as a standalone, desktop device.
The new SFPs enable staff to work more productively, with print speeds of 33 pages per minute (ppm), the ability to print double-sided documents, and a quick and easy to navigate five-line LCD control panel. They are also capable of producing high-quality documents, printing at a resolution of 1200x 1200 dpi.
Organisations will also benefit from reduced print downtime. Efficient device management, through eMaintenance, enables the remote servicing of devices and the close monitoring of consumables ensures that toner and paper supplies never run low.
To help minimise energy consumption, both the LBP6680x and LBP6670dn have also been designed with the environment in mind, with an auto shut-off feature, the option of two-sided printing as standard and class-leading low energy consumption levels of 1.3kWH/week.
Anil Jagpal continues, “The two new LBP i-SENSYS models mean that Canon now offers both black-and-white and colour laser printers with security, cost management and device management features that are consistent with the successful imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform. We offer an advanced print solution for any sized organisation; whether you are an IT manager looking for an integrated balanced deployment of print solutions or small business that wants to benefit from enterprise functionality from a single device.”
i-SENSYS FAX-L150 and FAX-L170
In addition to the new i-SENSYS LBP devices, Canon is also announcing the launch of two new black-and-white i-SENSYS fax devices, the FAX-L150 and the FAX-L170. The FAX-L170 features an in-built handset and both models include a 5-line LCD display, compact footprint, low power consumption and UHQ image processing. The new fax devices are ideal for companies where Fax is critical to business processes or for small businesses that require a combination of fax and print functionality.
