Canon Announces New imageRunner Advance 6500 and 8500 Pro Series

10 Feb, 2016

USA - February 9, 2016- Canon, provider of imaging solutions, has announced a new range of monochrome multifunctional devices (MFDs) for busy offices and in-house print rooms. Designed to help address business concerns around organisational costs, security, and employee productivity, the imageRunner Advance 6500 and 8500 Pro series include a range of enhancements to reduce the total cost of documents, secure information and improve workflow.

90 per cent of the total cost of documents is hidden and relates to the cost of handling and publishing documents as well as managing devices. The imageRunner Advance 6500 and 8500 series reduces these hidden costs through easy management and operation as well as powerful document capture and publishing capabilities.

By far the greatest hidden cost of print is associated with the cost of handling and integrating documents into digital workflows. The new devices combine powerful scanning capabilities and Canon's solutions platform to integrate and streamline paper processes. Users can capture, archive, process, and share information directly from the device to almost any location and format.

A common and intuitive graphical menu across the range combined with a new WVGA capacitive touchscreen display offers the same simple operation as a smartphone or tablet. New personalisation capabilities automatically tailor the home screen, language, personal workflows, address books and settings to each user. Video assistance and automatic detection of media size and misfeeds speeds up tasks while newly added motion sensors remove waiting times and reduce power consumption.

The addition of Mopria support, PDF printing and WIFI as standard as well as optional NFC support extends Canon’s already comprehensive mobile working offering.

A robust design, flexible media handling, and versatile finishing options allows businesses to produce professional-looking documents and bring print volumes in-house without the costs of outsourcing or manual finishing.

Through support for industry IT standards as well as centralised and remote management capabilities, the new devices are designed for service-based print solutions that remove the management burden of print from businesses.

The new devices support the latest security standards including HDD secure erase, IPSec and HDD total drive encryption certified to FIPS 140-2 standard. A newly added security policy function groups all settings into a single place, simplifying the management and application of security settings and policies.

Also standardised is the Universal Login Manager software providing a unique combination of user-based authentication, personalisation, function control and reporting. For larger businesses, seamless integration with uniFLOW software provides a single, centralised solution to control user access and all the elements of printing and scanning across an entire fleet.

Both imageRunner Advance 6500 and 8500 Pro series will be available across Europe from 1st March 2016.
