Canon provides new opportunities to partners with three new A4 colour imageRUNNER models

Canon UK, the imaging solutions provider, has extended its print portfolio and creating new opportunities for partners with the addition of three compact and feature rich A4 colour multifunctional devices (MFDs), the imageRUNNER C1225iF, imageRUNNER C1325iF and imageRUNNER C1335iF.

Francis Thornhill, European and UK Product Marketing Manager at Canon Europe, comments: "Demand for affordable colour A4 MFDs continues to grow and with the addition of these new compact models, Canon offers enhanced growth and profit opportunities for our partners with one of the most extensive print portfolios on the market."

Creating new opportunities with Canon A4 colour

The new devices offer cost effective colour printing thanks to print engine technology inherited from the successful imageRUNNER ADVANCE C250/ 350 series. This is the first time Canon has used separate toner and drum technology on the colour imageRUNNER range to reduce waste and achieve greater efficiencies in printing and support partner profitability.

The imageRUNNER C1300 series is designed for busy small workgroups and offices with print volumes of 1000 to 6000 pages per month and supports "click" service contracts, offering a significantly lower running cost and Total Cost of Ownership than its predecessor, the imageRUNNER C1028 series.

In addition to lower running costs, the new imageRUNNER C1300 series feature new technologies, consistent across the imageRUNNER ADVANCE range, that allow partners to benefit from lower service costs and higher margins. With a quick setup guide built into the device and an image reader for scanning coming as standard, installation of the new models can be completed in just a few minutes. Users can also replace drums easily, which can save on partners' time and associated costs.

The imageRUNNER C1300 devices also support an enhanced range of service management tools which now includes remote batch configuration and firmware updating capabilities for the first time on the imageRUNNER range. In addition, a new Remote User Interface service reduces time at the device for technicians. These enhancements support remote service capabilities and allow partners to easily manage and service the entire fleet remotely, making the new devices highly suitable for fleet deployments.

The devices also allow partners to offer additional document output control to customers thanks to embedded compatibility with uniFLOW management software, which helps to recover, allocate or control print costs as well as reduce the risk of print related data breaches through My Print Anywhere secure release and Card reader support. Finally, native support for industry standards such as PCL and Genuine Adobe PostScript helps partners integrate the devices into customer IT environments without complication.

Francis Thornhill continues: "With enhanced management capabilities and lower running costs, the imageRUNNER C1300 series will also assist partners to reduce of their infrastructure costs in MPS operations by implementing a balanced deployment of lower-priced A4 alongside core A3 models to meet the specific print volumes of any office space."

As an alternative to the imageRUNNER C1300 series, the imageRUNNER C1225iF is designed for users expecting lower print volumes of 1000 pages or less per month. The imageRUNNER C1225iF is perfect for IT resellers without a service operation thanks to maintenance free operation, one year manufacturer's warranty as well as user-replaceable consumables and a simple installation process. It also delivers excellent value for money out of the box, with up to 12 months colour printing toner included as standard[i]

New value as standard

The new devices are packed with features and provide businesses with great value for money. In addition to fast colour printing, copying, scanning, fax and send functionality, they also feature a new "touch and swipe" operation 8.9cm colour graphical display, as well as Genuine Adobe PostScript 3 support as standard.

Specially tailored to provide reliable high quality colour printing, the latest imageRUNNER models feature new V2 Vivid and Vibrant technology, which is unique to these devices and allows users to produce professional-looking colour business documents that deliver greater impact to help businesses stand out from the competition.

The new printers are also the first imageRUNNER devices to support the Mopria mobile printing standard and come with extensive connectivity options to support mobile working, from support for AirPrint, printing and scanning from USB memory key, as well as Canon's own Mobile Printing and Scanning apps. Enhancements to security features, such as native secure print as well as the ability to scan directly to a range of destinations and in a variety of file formats, including searchable and compact PDFs, offer great value to customers as standard.

With a robust design capable of a maximum duty cycle of up to 50,000 pages, the new models produce impressive high-quality colour prints time after time. The imageRUNNER C1225iF and C1325iF deliver speeds of up to 25ppm while the imageRUNNER C1335iF produces prints at up to 35ppm.

The imageRUNNER C1225iF, C1325iF and C1335iF will be available across Europe in March 2015.
