Canon Unveils Six New Entry-Level Multi-Function Devices Tailored To The Needs of Modern Offices
Combining exceptional mobile connectivity and security, the latest imageRUNNNER A3 and A4 monochrome multi-function devices help businesses optimise performance
SINGAPORE, 14 OCTOBER 2019 – Canon today announced six new additions to the imageRUNNER (iR) multi-function device (MFD) line-up, comprising four A3 monochrome MFDs, the iR2645i, iR2635i, iR2630i and iR2625i, as well as two A4 monochrome MFDs, the iR1643i and iR1643iF. Built to meet the needs of modern-day offices, the entry-level MFDs help businesses increase productivity with seamless mobile connectivity, supporting a wide range of mobile printing solutions including Canon PRINT Business, Google Cloud Print™, Apple® AirPrint™ and Mopria® Print Service.
“Accomodating a mobile workforce, embracing cloud technology and securing valuable business data are key in managing today’s offices,” said Toshiaki Nomura, Director, Regional BIS Sales & Marketing, Canon Singapore. “Our new imageRUNNER MFDs are designed to fulfill the requirements of modern offices. Equipped with uniFLOW Online Express, Canon’s cloud-based print management solution, the MFDs help businesses track and assess print, copy, scan, and fax usage, as well as allocate costs to departments accurately. The MFDs are also capable of safeguarding the confidentiality of business data with strong security features, such as Verify System at Startup, Encrypted PDF and Device Signature PDF, effectively prevent unauthorised device access and protect scanned documents.”
Engineered to Excel in Modern Office Environments
Comprising iR2645i, iR2635i, iR2630i and iR2625i, the highly efficient iR2600i series offers remarkable print speeds of up to 45 pages per minute (ppm), and various smart capabilities to improve user convenience and productivity in modern offices. Incorporating a unique Forced Hold Print function, the MFDs allow users to preview and edit print settings before finally releasing temporarily held print jobs. This helps to reduce paper wastage from accidental prints, and save users the hassle of re-submitting print jobs.
Supporting greater security, the new iR2600i series proactively deters data breaches by integrating with third party Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system to provide insights into potential threats. Featuring a new Syslog protocol, the MFDs send device information to the SIEM system for monitoring, and upon detection of abnormal activities, the system sends real time alerts to administrators for immediate threat analysis and prevention.
Aimed at providing users with greater ease of use, the MFDs present a new user interface (UI) known as the Home Screen on a large 7-inch colour touchscreen LCD. The UI offers a new Timeline feature which displays shortcuts for past or repeated scan and copy jobs, helping users avoid the inconvenience of repetitive operations. The MFDs also provide users with the ability to customise preferences, offering personalisation of initial display screen, display language and frequently-used functions for added convenience.
Set to Aid Businesses Streamline Document Workflows
Pre-installed with Application Library, the new iR1643i and iR1643iF host a range of shortcuts designed to help users streamline workflows and work faster. Users can customise the MFDs to automate routine tasks according to specific work requirements, and convert multiple steps into a one-step operation for achieving maximum efficiency. The productive MFDs also feature a swift printing speed of 43 ppm, and high-capacity paper feed of up to 2,300 sheets to help busy offices breeze through heavy workloads. Built with a 5-inch colour touchscreen LCD, the MFDs provide a great user experience with easy navigation across the intuitive UI. The display of simple icons in a clean layout and smartphone-like virtual QWERTY keyboard provide users with superb ease of use.
The imageRUNNER 2645i, 2635i, 2630i and 2625i, as well as 1643i and 1643iF will be available at authorised Canon distributors and dealers from October 2019 onwards.
