Business Wire

MELVILLE, N.Y. -- May 06, 2013

Developed to extend the award-winning Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform to
businesses seeking an advanced workgroup print solution, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a
leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the imageRUNNER ADVANCE
500iF/400iF monochrome multifunction office systems. Offering seamless
integration with other imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems, the easy to deploy, easy
to manage Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE 500iF/400iF models deliver operational and
solutions consistency with the imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform. The compact,
high-speed multifunction office systems allow customers using black-and-white
single-function printers (SFPs) and MFPs in the 40-55 page-per-minute (ppm)
range to implement a flexible print solution that offers the ability to
increase fleet cohesiveness across a network.

“The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE 500iF/400iF models are ideal solutions for any
business, especially those offices that require full-scale workflow support
that is consistent across their business – whether in the local office or
across the fleet,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Canon
U.S.A. “These new models will allow organizations of any size to leverage
innovative mobile and cloud-based solutions^1 as well as track and manage cost
effectiveness, all while advancing productivity, collaboration and ease-of-use
in the workplace without sacrificing space.”

Representing the most compact imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs yet in Canon’s lineup,
the imageRUNNER ADVANCE 500iF and imageRUNNER ADVANCE 400iF feature
black-and-white print speeds of up to 52 ppm and 42 ppm (letter),
respectively. Both are able to scan up to 52 letter-sized images-per-minute in
color and black-and-white. Each MFP has a standard paper capacity of 650
letter- or legal-size sheets that can be expanded to 2,300 sheets with the
purchase of up to three optional 550-sheet paper cassettes.

Requiring an installation space of just 31” x 22”, these new devices can fit
into a variety of office environments where saving space is important, or
where printing of larger size paper formats is not required. More small- to
medium-sized workgroups, executive offices, satellite offices, medical
practices, law firms, and schools can now benefit from Canon’s imageRUNNER
ADVANCE solution platform. These devices can also serve as a cost-effective,
small-footprint addition to an enterprise fleet with the ability to co-exist
with other imageRUNNER AVANCE MFPs that are managed across a network.

Like all imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs, these new models are designed to be the
core of business communications where imaging technology, cloud connectivity,
and mobile solutions converge. Building upon the established design, workflow,
control, performance and responsibility attributes of the previous generation,
some of the new features and capabilities found in the imageRUNNER ADVANCE
500iF/400iF include:

  *Performance Improvements: With the new “Quick Startup Mode” it only takes
    approximately seven seconds from turning on the main power until the key
    operation on the touch panel display becomes available, while maintaining
    standby electricity use of less than 0.5W.
  *Intuitive Design: With two menus available on the seven-inch, full color,
    tiltable, high resolution TFT screen, users have instant access to the
    main options but can also save frequently used features to a second menu.
    For added customization, administrators can organize and control the
    on-screen layout and display to feature a preferred order of features and
    display customized company graphics.
  *Workflow Support: The new models support Canon’s MEAP (Multifunctional
    Embedded Application Platform) and MEAP Web platforms, allowing expanded
    integration within business workflow applications, including a variety of
    mobile and cloud printing solutions. The award-winning imageRUNNER ADVANCE
    Desktop Quick Printing Tool makes it easy to drag and drop documents to
    quickly print, fax and bind using standard and customized document
    templates.
  *Enhanced security: A Hard Disk Drive Erase function, available on prior
    systems as an option, is standard on these new models. It helps protect
    sensitive information by overwriting latent images after each task. An HDD
    Lock function, also a new standard feature, helps protect 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, helps
    protect data that crosses through the network.
  *Managed Document Services Support: The new models offer both platform and
    operational consistency with larger imageRUNNER ADVANCE systems. This
    means customers can implement advanced workflow and managed services tools
    across their MFP fleet without sacrificing space or having to learn a new
    workflow. The new models also support more plug-ins for imageWARE
    Enterprise Management Console than the prior models, resulting in
    higher-level and more convenient integrated device management. A variety
    of plug-ins are supported, including ones that allow service providers to
    manage the migration and deployment of device settings, conduct firmware
    updates, and manage devices in an intranet environment within the same
    application.
