All models in the series are equipped with automatic duplex printing, reducing paper consumption for sustainability and also helping businesses save costs.
All three multifunction printers are equipped with a 50-sheet capacity Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), capable of fast single-pass scanning and digitising two-sided documents effortlessly at up to 100 images per minute (ipm) in monochrome and 80 ipm in colour. The ADF feature empowers businesses to digitise and manage vast amounts of paperwork swiftly and efficiently.
Versatile Connectivity and Enhanced Security
Canon's laser printers are designed to blend seamlessly into modern office environments. Equipped with ethernet and wireless connectivity, users can enjoy wireless printing from mobile devices and facilitate network printing for shared use in offices. The versatile connectivity capability ensure flexibility and convenience, catering to the evolving needs of small businesses and large offices.
The new printers are also productivity enablers for businesses as they are connected to cloud solutions, with support for Google Drive, Dropbox and OneDrive for printing and scanning. Enterprises with a Microsoft Azure subscription can also enjoy seamless connectivity with Microsoft Universal Print support.
Data communication between printer and host devices is protected with enhanced security features, including TLS 1.3 to eliminate data eavesdropping and spoofing. On top of that, the Verify System at Startup authentication process also reinforces the integrity of the printing architecture in offices, preventing tampering or unauthorized modifications.
Ease of Use for Seamless Operation
The imageCLASS LBP248x and MF460 series are equipped with 5-inch colour LCD touchscreen with Application Library support.
