MELVILLE, N.Y. -- April 29, 2013

Offering faster black-and-white print speeds, shorter warm-up times, more
standard system features, improved finishers and greater energy efficiency
than the multifunction systems they replace, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in
digital imaging solutions, has introduced the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9200 PRO
Series for central reprographic departments (CRD) and light production
environments and the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C7200 Series for high-volume office

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9280 PRO features output speeds of up to 80
pages-per-minute in black-and-white and up to 70 ppm in color, and the
imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9270 PRO provides up to 70 ppm in black-and-white and up
to 65 ppm in color. Both models offer the most advanced finishing and media
support and highest levels of image quality within the imageRUNNER ADVANCE
line to meet the needs of CRD environments, short-run print-for-pay
businesses, and high volume offices looking to bring work in house.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C7270 and C7260 feature speeds of up to 70 ppm and up
to 60 ppm in black-and-white and 60 ppm and up to 55 ppm in color,
respectively, and will suit the needs of high-volume color office
environments. These models can serve as an upgrade path for mid-volume MFPs
with faster speeds, more robust paper handling and finishing, and more
flexible media support. Both models give large departments within an
enterprise the ability to handle higher print volumes quickly, helping to
realize faster turnaround time and productivity efficiencies.

”Work environments in many industries have changed tremendously in recent
years, with disruptive technologies changing the way we work in a fundamental
way,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing,
Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “Canon is addressing the need
for streamlined workflows and optimized business processes with
state-of-the-art devices that provide powerful performance and productivity.”

The new models are built on Canon’s next-generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE
platform, designed to be the core of business communications where imaging
technology, cloud connectivity, and mobile solutions converge. It builds upon
the established design, workflow, control, performance and responsibility
attributes of the previous generation, with new capabilities to further
enhance the user experience, streamline document workflows, and merge
technologies together to optimize business processes. Some of the new features
and capabilities include:

  *Shorter warm-up times: The Induction Heat-RAPID fusing system reduces
    warm-up time to approximately 31 seconds from sleep mode compared to up to
    six minutes for the previous models. In “Quick Startup Mode” it only takes
    seven seconds from turning on the main power until the key operation on
    the touch panel display becomes available.
  *Improved energy efficiency: The combination of fusing technologies and pQ
    toner help lower overall energy consumption by minimizing power
    requirements and reducing energy use during warm-up and standby modes. All
    models achieve best-in-class Total Energy Consumption (TEC) ratings, meet
    ENERGY STAR® standards, and have received an EPEAT^® Gold rating (EPEAT is
    the definitive global registry for greener electronics).
  *Enhanced security: A Hard Disk Drive Erase function, previously only
    available as an option, is standard on the new models. It protects
    sensitive information by overwriting latent images after each task. An HDD
    Lock function, also a new standard feature, protects data stored in the
    HDD from being accessed by a PC after removing it from the device. IPsec,
    another previously optional feature that’s now standard, protects data
    that crosses through the network.
  *Improved image quality: Canon’s propriety ZIMA chip and Dot-Screen
    technology, which until now were only available on the company’s
    imagePRESS line of digital production presses, allows for smoother and
    higher-quality copy reproduction of output for general business documents
    (text/photo) and contributes to increased smoothness in highlights.
  *Flexible in-line finishing options: A wide variety of finishing devices
    are now available to help improve productivity, including a staple
    finisher, booklet finisher, 2/3-hole punch, and insertion/folding options
    for all of the new models, plus a professional puncher, booklet trimmer,
    and folding unit for the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9280 PRO/C9270 PRO.


C7270/C7260 models are available through Canon authorized dealers at
manufacturer's suggested retail prices of $52,500, $42,000, $36,750 and
$29,400 respectively*. More information on these models and the entire
next-generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform can be found at
