Canon Marketing Philippines, Inc. launched the imageRUNNER ADVANCE Series, a new range of intelligent document imaging devices that blends hardware, software, and strategic services to help businesses advance in today’s demanding markets. This dynamic new series draws on the long heritage of Canon’s award-winning imageRUNNER product line for large-sized and medium-sized corporations.
The new ADVANCE series, a new generation Canon multifunctional device (MFD), is designed to meet the evolving needs of today’s users by enhancing work efficiency and security while helping manage and customize workflows for better operational performance. A truly advanced business partner!
Advanced Usability: Customizable user interface
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE Series has been redesigned to simplify workflows and seamlessly integrate the device with nearly any work environment. This new series features a full color SVGA TFT control panel with an 8.4” x 10.4” multicolor screen for wide viewing angles. Its new “slide-and-tilt” to upright capability allows users to adjust the control panel to a comfortable and accessible position.
Users can also customize the interface by logging into their own account, then selecting the onscreen background, and reorganizing the onscreen buttons that best fit the way they need to work.
Advanced Efficiency: New file exchange format
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE series has taken the revolutionary step to integrate the Office Open XML (OOXML) file format to its system. This new series enables users to simply scan documents then quickly convert them into editable files. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE scans hard copies then converts a scanned image into the digital and editable OOXML format, which can be opened using Microsoft PowerPoint. This enables users to edit the file and reuse graphs and pictures. This sophisticated new function eliminates the time-consuming process of manually recreating an entire PowerPoint file.
In addition, Canon continues to partner with Adobe by integrating its world-renowned features into the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE Series. The new series supports True Adobe PDF and PDF Reader Extensions® formats, which can identify the style and format of scanned PDF documents, making them searchable and compatible with the Windows search operating system.
Users can also create mark-ups and add comments using sticky notes directly on the scanned document, thus eliminating the need of purchasing extra software. The Optimized PDF for Web function further enhances productivity by significantly shrinking file size, boosting display speed, and saving bandwidth, thus reducing user frustration during the download process.
Advanced Security: Multi-protection system
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE Series also offers improved document security by introducing the highly secure Adobe LiveCycle Rights Management ES, a system that provides controlled access to scanned PDF documents. Users can assign fully editable usage rights – such as reviewing, copying, editing, or printing – to policy-protected PDF files with a preset password.
The policy can also control access periods, disable the print-screen function, and add a secure watermark to printed documents to protect critical business data. The Advanced Document Scan Lock can likewise embed hidden password in a hard copy document and restrict unauthorized copying or scanning of that particular document. All these features provide a powerful new level of security for confidential documents.
Advanced Responsibility: Stronger environmental focus
Canon is committed to the environment and the advancement of green technologies in every phase of the product life cycle. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE models are designed to be the smallest and lightest in their class, and are the first Canon devices to make use of 100% combined bio-plastic and recycled plastic parts.
By examining every stage of the manufacturing, energy-use, and logistics processes, the new series is expected to reduce CO2 emission by over 30% compared to previous models. Meeting and achieving the ENERGY STAR standards, the new series achieves up to 75% reduction in overall power consumption by using a white LED array instead of standard Xenon tubes. Canon also uses its Proprietary Image Sensor technology versus traditional CCD sensors and uses new fusing technologies that reduce power consumption to as low as 1W in Sleep Mode. With these eco-friendly credentials, there can be no doubt that the imageRUNNER ADVANCE is one of the market’s most energy-efficient multifunction printers.
The Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE Series is designed to address the ever-growing needs of users, administrators, and business decision-makers to better manage and customize workflows while also accomplishing more tasks in less time and achieving higher levels of quality. True to its name, it is an advanced business partner for a new era of productivity, efficiency, and security.
The Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE comes in a number of models, namely C9075 PRO, C9065 PRO, C5051, C5045, C5035, and C5030.
