Business Wire

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. -- February 15, 2013

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced today new
additions to the Company’s imagePROGRAF large format solution lineup with the
new imagePROGRAF iPF MFP M40 imaging systems. The new models offer an
affordable solution that help provide fast, high-quality, large format image
capture-to-output. Enhancements include smarter, more versatile and
cloud-enabled workflows that help users produce precise image quality, with
double the scanner optical resolution of previous versions.

The new iPF M40 system lineup includes new features that broaden its appeal
beyond the CAD/AEC markets. New models** include:

  *44” wide iPF825 MFP M40 system with two media feed rolls
  *44” wide iPF815 MFP M40 system with one media feed roll
  *36” wide iPF765 MFP M40 system with 250 GB hard drive and flat stacker
    basket
  *36” wide iPF760 MFP M40 system with flat stacker basket
  *36” wide iPF750 MFP M40 system with traditional basket stand

“Business environments today require more than a traditional large format
printer; this new input to output solution allows for versatility and helps
improve workflow efficiency at an affordable price,” said Sam Yoshida, vice
president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group,
Canon U.S.A. “These additions to the imagePROGRAF line meet our high standards
for quality, while accepting a broader range of paper weights and types. We
expect a variety of organizations, such as architectural firms and educational
institutions to benefit from the new features and advance the way they operate
as a result.”

Intelligent, Cloud-Enabled Workflow

The imagePROGRAF iPF MFP M40 family of devices includes the latest version of
SmartWorks MFP Software, helping to simplify the entire scan-to-print, file
and cloud process for users of all experience levels. The new devices help
users gain more control over their workflow, providing users with access to
more editing functions than the prior models, such as invert, mirror, and
black and white point adjustments and customizable default scanner and printer
settings. The new iPF MFP devices also include Canon’s Direct Print & Share, a
cloud-based software solution that enables the viewing, sharing and printing
of files from almost anywhere in the world, with 5GB of free storage available
if users sign up for Google’s cloud services*.

The printers include a number of other software applications that empower
application versatility including:

  *PosterArtist Lite poster creation software that helps users at any skill
    level to create professional posters
  *Accounting Manager feature which collects printer job information such as
    media consumption, media type and output size, allowing users to obtain
    printing costs to track in-house usage or for sharing with billing
    customers
  *Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office helps users of any skill level to
    create large-format printouts of documents, images or illustrations that
    were created by Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint programs.

Enhanced Input-to-Output Image Quality

The M40 scanner comes equipped with a SingleSensor assembly technology that
helps produce seamless images without gaps or breaks. The new technology
incorporated into the scanner helps provide consistent and more accurate
color, as well as greater detail in the shadows and highlights. Full width
image capture, as opposed to time-delayed scanning of separate sections, means
less risk of misalignment of scan data as well.

Additional new features of the M40 scanner include:

  *Fits documents that are up to 42” wide; image scanning up to 40” wide –
    Captures true full bleed 36” prints
  *Easy document feeding – Straight paper feed for less wear and tear on
    documents
  *Fast scanning speed

       *Max. speed of 3 inches per second in monochrome
       *Max. speed of 13 inches per second in color

  *USB 3.0 interface – Up to ten times faster than previous USB2 speeds
  *Scan documents up to 2.0 mm thick
  *1200dpi scanning versus previous 600dpi for crisper, cleaner scans

These new imagePROGRAF models are scheduled to be available in February
through Authorized Canon Dealers and Premier Partner Resellers. The
manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) †† of the systems are $11,495 for
the iPF825 MFP M40 system, $9,795 for the iPF815 MFP M40 system, $8,995 for
