LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. -- January 14, 2013

Designed for busy workgroups that demand efficient workflow in a compact
space, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 series of color multifunction office
systems from Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, allows
users to gather, organize and disseminate information to help them meet the
unique needs of their office environments.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 Series is built on the next-generation
imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform. Launched last year, this platform is designed to
be the core of digital business communications where imaging technology, cloud
connectivity, and mobile solutions converge. Each new model brings a variety
of enhancements to the design, workflow, control, performance and
environmentally conscious attributes.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2230 and imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2225 produce up to 30
pages-per-minute (ppm) and up to 25 ppm output, respectively, for both color
and monochrome letter-size prints, while featuring a scan rate of up to 51
images per minute. Both models have a maximum paper capacity of 2,270 sheets
and can handle up to 12” x 18” paper. With the ability to access and leverage
the capabilities of other connected imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices, these models
can not only serve as a stand-alone multifunction device in a small or remote
office but also as an addition to an existing fleet of devices in an
enterprise setting.

“With the ability to integrate hardware and software solutions, the
imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 series allows organizations to customize their
devices to best fit the way they work,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and
general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A.
“These intelligently designed, highly flexible systems can be easily updated
or added as the needs of the business change and integrated with other devices
to strengthen and grow fleet environments.”

Advanced Design

With an intuitive interface displayed on a seven inch, full-color, tiltable,
high-resolution TFT screen, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 Series helps users
accomplish tasks quickly and effectively. The main menu provides instant
access to commonly used functions, and on-screen quick menu buttons can be
customized to meet specific departmental or user needs. Fitting in a space as
small as 34” x 27”, its compact size is achieved with innovations such as
Canon’s space-saving vertical toner transfer technology and the availability
of an optional internal staple finisher that provides professional-quality
output without adding to the footprint.

Advanced Workflow

Like all imageRUNNER ADVANCE models, the C2200 series can serve as a digital
communications hub, integrating enterprise applications, connecting to certain
cloud applications, linking to other devices in a company’s fleet, and giving
users the ability to work efficiently from anywhere. With drag-and-drop
functionality, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE Desktop Quick Printing Tool allows
users to print, fax and convert files to PDF format without opening the native
application. These new models are also equipped to take advantage of several
mobile and cloud-based solutions – customizable for different needs and price
points – that enable users to securely print and scan from a variety of mobile
devices such as laptops, iPad® tablets and iPhone® or BlackBerry® smartphones.

To help automate complex business processes, Canon offers MEAP-Web to allow
applications to be developed via web services with integration on the device
through the imageRUNNER ADVANCE Web Access software option. This allows
in-house developers, partners and integrators to build customized solutions
that leverage information from back-end enterprise applications such as ERP,
CRM, and content management systems.

Advanced Control

As security and control become increasingly important, Canon provides tools to
easily configure a system, migrate settings, safeguard data and track
resources. With new imageWARE Enterprise Management Console plug-ins, an
entire fleet of imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices can be centrally monitored for
usage information, updated with the latest firmware, and configured with new
applications and settings.

With Canon’s server-less Advanced Anywhere-Print (AA-Print) solution that
includes a login application called Universal Login Manager, users can print
to a connected Canon device and retrieve their documents after authentication
at any supported Canon device on their network, and IT administrators can
track usage and enforce printing controls when needed. Each model is also
equipped with a tamper-resistant security chip, which protects passwords and
encryption keys. In addition, the standard HDD Data Erase and HDD Lock
features help protect information even after the hard drive is removed.

Advanced Performance

The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 series incorporates Canon’s state-of-the-art
imaging technology for reliable delivery of crisp, clear output. In addition,
fast and consistent processing speed is delivered through Canon’s advanced
imageCHIP architecture that features two dedicated processors that work
together to accomplish multiple tasks simultaneously. These models also
feature a new Quick Startup mode that allows users to get started in as little
as seven seconds from Main Power Off.

To further enhance productivity and flexibility of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE
C2200 series, a variety of paper feeding, finishing, printer, security and
accessibility options are available for an additional cost, including a
booklet finisher, an external staple finisher, and an additional cassette
feeding unit.

Advanced Responsibility

Users will benefit from energy-saving and environmentally conscious features
built into the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 series. The new models have a low
Typical Energy Consumption (TEC) value and consume very little energy during
sleep mode. Print drivers are defaulted to duplex documents, encouraging
two-sided printing to reduce waste. Organizations can further control their
resources through intelligent device management solutions that help optimize
the use of toner and paper. In addition, the combination of fusing
technologies and low melting point toner helps lower overall energy
consumption.

Maintaining Canon’s commitment to lowering environmental burdens, the new
models employ components fabricated with 100 percent recycled plastic from
retired products. They also include bio-based plastic, a plant-derived
compound that replaces certain petroleum-based plastic parts.

Availability

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2230 and the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2225 are available
through Canon authorized dealers and Canon Solutions America, Inc. at
manufacturer's suggested retail prices of $9,660 and $6,615, respectively*.
