Canon U.S.A. Introduces an Entire New Line Of imageRUNNER Networked Office Systems At Its 2001 Digital Solution Forum
Canon U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Canon Inc., introduced a new line of imageRUNNER Networked Office Systems at the Canon Digital Solution Forum, the Company's annual showcase of technological leadership and future strategic vision.
Spanning a range of speeds that address the needs of mid and high-volume customers, the new models on display include the imageRUNNER 85 for production printing environments, the imageRUNNER 7200 for high-volume corporate departments, and the imageRUNNER 3300i for mid-volume workgroups.
Canon imageRUNNER 85 Production Printer
The imageRUNNER 85 is an 85 page-per-minute (ppm) black-and-white production printer with a robust set of document throughput and finishing capabilities designed to enhance overall productivity. The print engine of the unit can support a monthly print volume of up to 400,000 impressions, and is intended for use within Host-Based Print Central Reprographic Departments, Print-for-Pay establishments, and distributed Print On Demand environments in mid-to-large size corporations.
From a document-finishing standpoint, the imageRUNNER 85 offers several options, all of which include single and multi-position stapling of up to 100 sheets as standard. Automatic saddle-stitch booklet making, 2 and 3-hole punch, and support for Z-folding and document insertion are all available via optional accessories. For print jobs of extended length, an optional 3,500-sheet paper deck brings total on-line capacity to 7,650 sheets. The imageRUNNER 85 can also print on pages with tabs for generating reports and other documents requiring chapters.
Standard PCL5e, PCL6, and PostScript printing at 600 x 600 dots-per-inch (dpi) resolution and 256 grayscale can be accessed through the printer's 10/100 Ethernet connection. Token Ring connectivity is optional, as is the Canon imagePASS-M1 Print Controller, which is ideally suited for applications that require the handling of true Adobe PostScript 3 files, large complex graphics, and variable data output. For confidential printing, a standard 100-user mailbox allows users to send jobs to the imageRUNNER 85 and hold them at the device until the correct password code is input on the control panel.
Canon imageRUNNER 7200
The imageRUNNER 7200 is a 72 ppm black-and-white digital copier with optional network printing and/or scanning capabilities. For consistency in product offerings, the connectivity, software, and document finishing tools available with the imageRUNNER 7200 are identical to other imageRUNNER 8500 devices, enabling organizations to significantly reduce system training time. The imageRUNNER 7200 targets high-volume corporate departments, and can also be utilized in Central Reprographic Departments, and Print-for-Pay and Print On Demand environments.
The imageRUNNER 7200 engine supports a monthly print volume of up to 350,000 impressions, with superior output quality at 600 x 600 dpi and 256 grayscale resolution. With optional 10/100 Ethernet network connectivity and printing support, the device can also perform scanning and true multi-tasking through a robust combination of intuitive software drivers and control panel features.
An internal 10.2 GB Image Server and 192 MB of RAM allows the imageRUNNER 7200 to scan up to five copy jobs in Copy Reservation mode. A Job Build mode allows a user to combine up to 100 simplex and duplex originals using either the document feeder or platen glass. The same memory can also be used for a Confidential Mail Box function, which allows up to 7,700 scanned or printed documents to be stored in 100 user-named mailboxes. A 100-sheet automatic document feeder, two 1500-sheet paper trays, and two 550-sheet user adjustable paper cassettes that can handle paper from statement size to 11`` x 17'', and 17 lb. Bond to 110 lb. Index, are standard. A 3,500-sheet paper deck is optional.
The imageRUNNER 7200 maintains Canon's leadership position in bringing comprehensive finishing functions to the corporate office. Several options are available, all of which include single and multi-position stapling of up to100 sheets as standard. Automatic saddle-stitch booklet making, 2 and 3-hole punch, and support for Z-folding and document insertion are also available through additional accessories.
Canon imageRUNNER 3300i
The new Canon imageRUNNER 3300i builds on the current available imageRUNNER 3300 by fully leveraging Canon's IP Architecture and the inclusion of Canon's Universal Send Technology. Canon IP enables the imageRUNNER 3300i to serve as a central hub for the distribution and management of corporate information, helping eliminate barriers to communication between paper and digital formats. At the core of the device is a 33 ppm digital copier/printer/scanner with optional faxing capability.
Canon's Universal Send technology, standard on the 3300i model, allows users to scan and distribute documents simultaneously via e-mail, Internet fax, standard fax, local area network, shared file server or database, to an unlimited number of recipients in a single operation.
With a large color touch screen LCD display, the imageRUNNER 3300i supports 1200 x 600 dpi and 256 grayscale resolution, automatic duplexing, 10/100 Ethernet connectivity and PCL5e, PCL6, and PostScript 3 printing as standard. Several finishing options, including a multi-position stapler/stacker, and a saddle-stitch finisher for V-fold booklet making, are available. Cascade Copy and Remote Copy functions allow users to split copy jobs across multiple IP-enabled imageRUNNER 3300i units. A Remote User Interface function allows access and management of the device over the Internet.
Availability and Pricing
The imageRUNNER 85, 7200, and 3300i are expected to be available in the Second Quarter of 2002 through Authorized Canon U.S.A Dealers and Canon Business Solutions locations. Pricing for the products and their related accessories will be made available at the time of launch for each model.
The new line of Canon imageRUNNER products are being demonstrated at the 2001 Canon Digital Solution Forum being held in the Tampa Bay Convention Center, December 5 - 7, 2001.
