MELVILLE, N.Y. -- March 12, 2013

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today introduced
two new additions to its imageCLASS line – the Color imageCLASS MF8280Cw and
MF8580Cdw laser multifunction printers (MFPs). The new color machines expand
on the success of their popular predecessors with higher print resolutions,
user-friendly technology and mobile printing capabilities to help meet the
needs of small businesses, workgroups, home offices and consumers.

Developed to help increase productivity, the MF8280Cw and the MF8580Cdw allow
end users to print from virtually anywhere in their home or office^1. Both
machines support the current 802.11 b/g/n wireless protocol, allowing for a
cable-free, hassle-free solution for printing documents. In addition to
wireless capabilities, the new printers allow individuals to scan to or print
files directly from a USB. They are also compatible with Google® Cloud
Print^TM 4  and the Canon Mobile Printing app^2 for iOS®, providing users the
convenience of printing a variety of file types directly from their
smartphones and tablets.

In addition to a new intuitive seven-line color LCD display, users can easily
access the scan and eco-copy functions right from the control panel with the
simple solution keys. The MF8280Cw and MF8580Cdw are equipped with
password-protected Department ID Management, which allows device usage to be
monitored and controlled to help reduce costs. Energy consumption may also be
reduced with Canon’s efficient Energy Saver Mode, which uses as little as 2
watts of energy.

“To remain competitive in this market, home and office users need workhorse
products that produce professional quality output at affordable prices,” said
Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions
Group, Canon U.S.A. “The new Color imageCLASS laser multifunction printers are
high-performance machines that include necessary functions such as wireless
connectivity to help create an efficient work environment.”

Delivering on Canon’s standards for high-quality output, the Color imageCLASS
MF8280Cw MFP provides professional color results for important documents
ranging from office presentations to school reports, at speeds of up to
14-pages-per-minute (ppm)^3 in both color and black and white. Building on the
success of its predecessor, the MF8280Cw improves quality by utilizing
advanced imaging technologies such as Auto Graduation Adjustment and Pure
Black technology to help ensure accurate and consistent image quality. For
easy paper handling, the Color imageCLASS MF8280Cw multifunction printer
features a 150-sheet cassette, single-sheet multi-purpose tray, plus a
50-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF). For a lower cost per page, the
MF8280Cw has a high yield black replacement cartridge available.

The Color imageCLASS MF8280Cw MFP is expected to be available starting in
mid-April through retailers, resellers and Canon Direct at a minimum
advertised price (MAP) of $449.

Color imageCLASS MF8580Cdw Laser Multifunction Printer

Primarily targeting office users seeking an all-in-one printer that also
delivers high-quality color output, Canon’s Color imageCLASS MF8580Cdw MFP
outputs up to 21 ppm^3 in both color and black and white, while allowing users
the flexibility to print remotely. Helping to reduce paper consumption, this
printer ships with standard duplex (two-sided) printing out of the box; duplex
copying, scanning and PC faxing are also included, as are user-friendly
features such as a seven-line color LCD for easy navigation. For added
convenience, a user can send scanned documents and forward received faxes to a
recipient through e-mail or a file server directly from the printer. The
MF8580Cdw is equipped with a 50-sheet duplex ADF, 250-sheet front-loading
cassette, 50-sheet multipurpose tray, and an optional 250-sheet cassette for
extended print capacity. To help protect confidential documents, the MF8580Cdw
features Secure Print which requires users to enter a code to release their
print documents. The MF8580Cdw also incorporates PCL language support and a
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol  (LDAP) compatible Address Book which
helps facilitate quick and easy scanning and sending.

The Color imageCLASS MF8580Cdw is expected to be available starting in early
April through retailers, resellers and Canon Direct at a minimum advertised
price (MAP) of $599.
