  • imageRUNNER series shows up global competition

    Canon’s imageRUNNER Advance series of multifunction printers (MFPs) is showing up its sector’s competition, claiming five accolades in the latest Buyers Laboratory LLC (BLI) Awards.

    The imageRUNNER Advance 6275, C5235, C5240 and C5250 won [northern] Summer 2013 ‘Pick’ awards in a range of A3 MFP categories while the imageRUNNER Advance C5255 Series earned an ‘Outstanding Achievement’ award for energy efficiency.

    Honoured with four bi-annual ‘Pick’ Awards in multiple speed bands for both colour and monochrome, Canon’s winning devices in the A3 MFP categories were praised for their superior reliability, measuring among the best in BLI’s comprehensive evaluations over the past 6 months.

    George Mikolay, BLI senior product editor for A3 MFPs said, “It’s a great accomplishment that combined, these devices produced more than half a million impressions with no service calls and just two misfeeds among them.”

    “Not only can users count on dark, sharp text and bold solids in black output, but they should have no qualms about using any of these engines for higher-quality brochures and marketing materials,” he said.

    Exhibiting significantly lower than average energy consumption during BLI’s environmental testing, the imageRUNNER Advance C5255 Series offers speeds of 55 pages-per-minute (ppm) in black mode and 51 ppm in colour mode for the A3 copier-based MFP market. In addition, this device recorded faster than average recovery times from sleep mode and offers job review and proof modes to reduce paper and consumables waste, features which contributed to its five-star overall rating.

    “Canon is honoured to be recognised as market leaders and these awards are a testament to the quality and ingenuity of our products,” said Jeremy Plint, assistant general manager of Marketing, Canon Business Services. “In a very competitive field, we are proud to stand ahead of our competition with the four ‘Pick’ awards to our name in the A3 MFP category.

    “Founded on the principles of environmental sustainability, Canon’s eco-friendly products are proven to be at the forefront of our industry in terms of both quality and performance. The imageRUNNER Advance C5255 is the perfect example of our commitment to our environmental vision,” he said.

  • Canon’s new imageRUNNER on offer at PacPrint

    Canon Australia is providing PacPrint punters with a sneak peek of its new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9200 Pro Series on its stand #3018 at the quadrennial trade show that opened this week in Melbourne.

    The C9200 Pro Series is the latest in Canon’s imageRUNNER ADVANCE product line and the company says it offers excellent light production credentials coupled with features such as image capture, user interface personalisation, usage tracking and access control, mobile and cloud connectivity and a server-less log in solution.

    The new press’s print speed is 80 ppm in black and white and 70 ppm in colour, deliverable from a 9,300 sheet paper capacity. According to Jeremy Plint, assistant general manager, Canon Business Services Australia, the new unit is a good fit for workplaces looking to streamline their print operations.

    “Work environments have evolved quite dramatically in recent years, fundamentally changing the technological landscape and the way we work,” says Plint. ” Canon is addressing the need for businesses to streamline their workflows and optimise processes with world class technology designed to provide greater efficiencies and productivity.”

    Included in the unit’s improved workflow features is the ability to replenish toner and media whilst printing for continuous, tight-turnaround operation. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9200 PRO also incorporates Canon’s on-demand fixing technology, making it operational from power-up in 31 seconds.

    The model also incorporates the latest EFI controller with a choice of two Fiery system 10 powered RIPs – an Imagepass A2 onboard RIP for light production environments, such as copy shops and CRDs, and Canon Colourpass external RIP for a small, new-to-digital commercial production environment looking to increase productivity.

    “With environmental sustainability high on our agenda, the imageRUNNER C9200PRO is ENERGY STAR qualified devices which offer a very competitive TEC rating, whilst CO2 emissions are almost negligible,” says Plint.
