Canon Solutions America Expands Cloud-Based Color Management Solutions with
Introduction of COLORlynx Profiler

MELVILLE, N.J., May 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canon Solutions America,
Inc., a subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc. today announced the release of
COLORlynx Profiler, a cloud-based profiling solution designed to support the
Company's imagePRESS series of digital presses and imageRUNNER ADVANCE
multifunctional printers. The new COLORlynx Profiler offering extends Canon
Solutions America's COLORlynx brand to encompass all Canon color production
and light production color printers, as well as competitive color printers
from other manufacturers.

"Combining ORIS cloud-based software with Canon's imagePRESS and imageRUNNER
ADVANCE devices helps to ensure Canon Solutions America customers the highest
level of color quality, accuracy and consistency," said David Palmieri,
Director of Strategic Accounts & Business Alliances for CGS Publishing
Technologies International GmbH (CGS). "COLORlynx Profiler is a natural
extension of the COLORlynx solution and makes it possible for any customer to
easily maintain and diagnose color compliance for their digital presses or
light production multifunctional devices, anywhere in the world."

"With the introduction of COLORlynx Profiler, a greater number of customers
working with a wide variety of both Canon and non-Canon printers have the
ability to achieve professional level color management on a consistent basis,"
said James Sharp, Executive Vice President of Professional Services for Canon
Solutions America. "Since COLORlynx Profiler is cloud-based and accessible
from a web browser, it reduces the need for capital investments in computer
hardware, software and maintenance. For those customers needing advice or
assistance in selecting, maintaining, and correcting their color output, the
Canon Solutions America Professional Services team of production analysts
stands at the ready to help with this exciting new tool."

Using the Cloud

Canon Solutions America's COLORlynx Profiler uses patented technology to
enable remote management of single or multiple devices over a secure Internet
connection, with a local measurement device. ORIS color calibration algorithms
ensure that colors are accurately reproduced and the highest level of gray
balance stability is achieved.

COLORlynx Profiler's calibration profiles are generated and used directly in
the digital front end of the color devices to offer greater color stability,
ensuring color output is consistent and accurate for customers no matter where
the device is located. COLORlynx Profiler delivers output that matches the
customer's specifications, and the use of its color verification feature helps
to ensure that color accuracy is consistent. Additionally, the software allows
end users to enjoy superior gray balance output to increase their press
utilization and reduce overall downtime due to color inconsistency.
