LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. -- November 05, 2012

Providing more features and faster output speeds than its predecessors, the
new LASER CLASS 650i fax-centric multifunction device from Canon U.S.A., Inc.,
a leader in digital imaging solutions, offers small businesses and enterprise
workgroups easy faxing, convenience copying, network printing, and color
scanning and sending capabilities in a compact, desktop design. With the
ability to leverage the same management utilities available for Canon’s
imageRUNNER® and imageRUNNER ADVANCE solutions, the LASER CLASS 650i is also
an ideal solution for enterprise fleet and managed print services (MPS)
environments where advanced device monitoring is required.

“This new LASER CLASS model gives small businesses and enterprise workgroups a
full-featured, fax-centric MFP solution that maximizes productivity and
usability in a compact size,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general
manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “For larger
offices that already utilize Canon’s expansive range of enterprise equipment,
the LASER CLASS 650i is a perfect complement to the fleet of larger models. It
provides a fully integrated and easy-to-use solution for workgroups or
satellite offices.”

Beyond offering basic and advanced fax features such as job forwarding, faxing
from a PC, reception restriction from unwanted senders, memory lock reception
and additional security and administrator-controlled functions, the LASER
CLASS 650i also provides the performance of a multi-function device,
ultimately enhancing end-user productivity. The new unit provides standard
convenience copying and network printing (including Canon’s UFR II LT, PCL and
PostScript Emulation) at speeds up to 35 pages-per-minute; document scanning
at up to 29 images-per-minute; and the ability to send scanned color documents
to one or multiple destinations via e-mail, network folders, or USB memory
media. It also features auto-duplexing capabilities to scan and output
double-sided documents.

The easy-to-use control panel on the LASER CLASS 650i features a five-line,
back-lit LCD, along with a solution key area for one-touch access to functions
such as scanning to a PC, secure print release, which requires a password to
release a document; and Eco Copy, which helps save paper by automatically
printing 2-up, two-sided documents. For easy fax operation, 19 one-touch
buttons are provided as well as 181 coded dial locations. Network operations -
including printing, sending, and device monitoring - are enabled by the
standard wired and wireless LAN (b/g/n) capabilities.

Canon’s patented RAPID Fusing system is employed to deliver less than
11-second warm-up time, less than six-second first print out time, and low
energy consumption that contributes to the model’s compliance with ENERGY
STAR® program requirements. The standard paper capacity for the LASER CLASS
650i is 250 sheets from the standard cassette plus 50 sheets from the stack
bypass. For longer continuous operation, the paper capacity can be expanded to
800 sheets with the purchase of the optional 500-sheet paper feeder.

The LASER CLASS 650i is available through Canon authorized dealers and Canon
Business Solutions at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $1,095. The
optional 500-sheet Paper Feeder FP-44 has an MSRP of $299.
