MELVILLE, N.Y. -- February 27, 2013

With the notion of maximizing production efficiency in mind, Canon U.S.A.,
Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced two new imageFORMULA
production document scanners, the DR-G1130 and DR-G1100. These scanners have
been designed to generate both high-speed and high-quality imaging, while
being able to withstand the day-to-day rigors of production-level scanning.
They allow for companies to improve flexibility and efficiency, maintain
business continuity, and increase overall productivity.

“Canon knows there is a demand for reliability when it concerns
production-level document scanning for businesses,” said Sam Yoshida, vice
president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A.
“These new imageFORMULA document scanners will provide companies with the
flexibility, and the reliability to help reduce production costs and save
time, all while consistently delivering outstanding speed and robust image

Enhanced Speed and Performance

Recognizing the need for high performance in the work place, Canon, has
increased performance capability and production levels over previous
imageFORMULA production document scanner models. The DR-G1130 scans up to 130
pages-per-minute (ppm)^1, while the DR-G1100 scans up to 100 ppm, ^1
conveniently scanning both sides in a single pass, and can scan in color,
grayscale or black-and-white. For added productivity, both the DR-G1130 and
DR-G1100 feature an Automatic Document Feeder that can handle up to 500 pages.

The Flexibility to Maximize Efficiency and Reliability

Businesses have a common goal to invest in a product that will contribute to
the overall office performance. The imageFORMULA DR-G1130 and DR-G1100 are
ideal for high-volume scanning environments to help save time and money. With
the Advanced Feeding Mechanism, the imageFORMULA DR-G1130 and DR-G1100 have
been specifically engineered to help reduce labor-intensive tasks such as
pre-sorting different forms of media. Whether you are scanning business cards,
long, thick or thin documents, both production document scanners are flexible
and reliable enough to handle a variety of document types. Additionally, the
DR-G1130 and DR-G1100 both have the ability to detect double feeds to help
prevent a paper jam for added workflow efficiency.

The DR-G1130 and DR-G1100 feature an intuitive-control panel so users can
easily access scanner settings, and conveniently initiate user-programmable
jobs for “one-touch operation.” Plus, the scanners are equipped with a
motorized paper feed tray that adjusts to the height of the batch, as well as
a flexible-paper feed and output guides for maximum efficiency. Couple this
with the aforementioned ability to handle a variety of document types and
users will be able to experience and deliver unattended batch scanning;
optimizing workflows and increasing efficiencies.

Keeping it “Green”

Canon prides itself on the Company’s efforts in the “green” movement, keeping
environmental safety and stability at a premium. Both the DR-G1130 and
DR-G1100 production document scanners are members of Canon’s Generation Green
program. Both models meet and adhere to ENERGY STAR® guidelines laid out for
energy efficiency, as well as the EU RoHS and WEEE directives for reduction of
hazardous substances and waste products.

scanners are available immediately through authorized Canon resellers for a
