New Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX MFDs Empower Businesses to Accelerate Digital Transformation
A perfect hub for connecting businesses to digital transformation, the comprehensive MFD lineup provides hybrid workplace with efficient digitisation and flexible cloud connectivity
SINGAPORE, 7 June 2021 — Canon today announced the launch of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE (iR-ADV) DX 6800i series, a productive range of A3 monochrome laser multi-function devices (MFDs) complementing its colour counterpart, the iR-ADV DX C5800i series launched earlier in February 2021. Ideal for businesses looking to accelerate digital transformation (DX) in the new normal, the comprehensive monochrome and colour MFD lineup meets varied user needs, while delivering efficient digitisation, flexible cloud connectivity and well-rounded security to support both office and remote work in the emerging hybrid workplace.
“The hybrid workplace brought about by the pandemic is quickly becoming the norm, and more businesses are digitally transforming their operations to enable agile collaboration across different functions in the office and remotely,” said Katsuya Tode, Assistant Director, Regional BIS Sales & Marketing, Canon Singapore. “With the addition of the iR-ADV DX 6800i series, our wide-ranging monochrome and colour MFDs are capable of meeting diverse needs, helping businesses to digitise efficiently, collaborate in the cloud securely, and create a sustainable work environment for the hybrid workforce while driving optimal productivity.”
Efficient Collaboration in the Hybrid Workplace
A perfect partner for accelerating digital transformation, the iR-ADV DX 6800i and C5800i series offer swift digitisation with an industry-leading scan speed of up to 270 images per minute (ipm), and works seamlessly with uniFLOW Online, a cloud-based print management solution to speed up digitisation. Based on pre-configured workflows, the solution’s Filing Assist automates batch scanning, naming, filing and routing of documents to various cloud destinations quickly for further processing. The flexible cloud connectivity allows in-office and remote workers to collaborate with ease, while the automated process eliminates time-consuming and error-prone manual filing for greater productivity in the hybrid workplace. The series also come equipped with uniFLOW Online Express, a simple cloud-based solution that helps track device usage, and prevents unauthorised access with device authentication.
Strong Defence Against Security Breaches
Operating with digital workflows in the hybrid workplace requires stronger endpoint security. From document, network to device security, the iR-ADV DX 6800i and C5800i series adopt a holistic approach in strengthening its defence against security breaches, and incorporate a wide range of security features to safeguard businesses against cyber threats. Notably, the series use Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 to safely encrypt critical data stored on the MFDs, and comply with Common Criteria (CC) Hardcopy Devices Protection Profile (HCD-PP) certification, an international evaluation standard for information security. McAfee Embedded Control, a standard security feature on the MFDs effectively blocks the execution of unauthorised applications, and prevents tampering of existing firmware to better protect businesses against malicious attacks.
Safe and Eco-friendly Work Environment
When paired with Canon PRINT Business App, the iR-ADV DX 6800i and C5800i series provide peace of mind with contactless operation. In-office workers can easily access the user interface of MFDs on their personal smartphones, and process jobs without touching the shared MFDs to minimise surface contact in view of the current pandemic. In addition to workplace safety, the series helps businesses drive sustainability with eco-friendly fusing technologies and sleep mode features to lower power consumption, upholding Canon’s commitment to implementing good practices that protect the environment.
The latest iR-ADV DX 6800i series will be available at authorised Canon distributors and dealers in June 2021, while the iR-ADV C5800i series is available from February 2021.
