Organisations in high-volume print environments empowered by Canon’s new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C7500i Series
Canon’s V2 colour and imaging technology promises outstanding colour prints and streamlined workflows
SINGAPORE, 15 NOVEMBER 2016 – Canon today unveiled the imageRUNNER ADVANCE (iR-ADV) C7500i Series, comprising the iR-ADV C7580i and iR-ADV C7570i, the newest models to join the new generation iR-ADV platform. These A3 multifunction office devices (MFDs) were designed for producing vivid and superior quality prints with a wide range of finishing options, best suited for high-volume print environments such as large offices, schools, universities or other self-service environments.
“We are excited to extend our imageRUNNER ADVANCE technology in high-volume print environments,” said Mr Vincent Low, Director and General Manager, Business Imaging Solutions, Canon Singapore. “With these new models, Canon seeks to help organisations achieve cost-effectiveness in their high volume colour prints and harness the convenient and security features available in our multifunctional devices.”
Delivering finesse in colour and print expertise
The new iR-ADV C7500i series employs the V2 colour profile as well as some of the proven engine and imaging technologies from the imagePRESS production space to render class-leading image quality. The Red Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (R-VCSEL) technology helps users to achieve crisp, clear colour prints with 2400 x 2400 dpi print resolution. The Consistently Vivid (CV) Toner is deployed for colour stability and brilliant images even on thicker paper type up to 300 gsm, uncoated, coated and textured paper types. In addition, the CV toner is designed for significantly higher yields from previous models, as well as greater drum yields. It also provides long-term stability of color reproducibility and image quality, without sacrificing speed in a high-volume print environment.
To many businesses, productivity is paramount. The iR-ADV C7500i series features several key productivity-enhancing improvements to help promote workflow efficiency, manage access and control with fleet management capability for multi-user environments.
Delivering Canon’s signature ease of operation to the digital business environment, the scan operation features have been enhanced. The standard “Skip Blank Originals” feature automatically detects blank pages when scanning originals and removes them from the generated file. This feature is especially useful when scanning two-sided originals when only some pages have content on the second side – creating more useful and accurate files.
As this series of iR-ADV is targeted at high volume multi-office users’ environment, it is important that the procedure to use and maintain the print device is simple and user-friendly. With Intuitive User Walkthrough videos, users can watch video demonstrations on common maintenance procedures such as how to replace the toner, staple cartridges, drum replacement and so forth. In addition, when working in sync with the Department ID feature, cost accounting by group usage can be generated for tracking purposes.
Diverse Finishing Options
Organisations that need to make use of a wide array of finished materials will benefit from the variety of new finishing options included in the iR-ADV C7500i series. A variety of finishing possibilities can be added to these models, including folding, hole-punching, document inserting, multi-position and saddle stitch stapling and booklet-making. In addition, users can make use of Staple-on-Demand and Staple-free Stapling features.
In order to help organisations control access to sensitive information, the iR-ADV C7500i series features a set of standard and allows for optional security capabilities. As part of the new generation iR-ADV platform, these MFDs include a standard Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Encryption function with FIPS140-2 validation. When activated, this function automatically encrypts data stored on the main unit’s HDD, thereby helping to restrict access to the customer’s data. The standard HDD Erase feature can be enhanced with an optional feature that allows you to schedule the timing and also create a confirmation report. The new series will also be able to ensure rightful access of authorised users through the user friendly picture log-in user authentication feature.
For enhanced additional security, it can integrate with the Canon Access Management System, which allows users to configure users' access rights on a feature by feature basis. The Access Management System plug-in is a simple solution that can be implemented today to provide effective cost control and heightened confidentiality.
The iR-ADV C7580i and C7570i are now available from Canon Singapore and at all Canon authorised imaging solution partners.
