NOTA DE PRENSA DE CANON USA
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y.–Oct. 6, 2003– Canon U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Canon Inc. today announced the launch of its imageRUNNER 3320N/3320i and imageRUNNER 2220N/2220i Series, a powerful quartet of advanced multifunction imaging systems incorporating Canon’s unique MEAP(Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform) architecture. Designed to support the demanding needs of small-to-mid-sized departments and corporate workgroups, the imageRUNNER 3320N/3320i and imageRUNNER 2220N/2220i Series offer the ability to embed multiple customized, simultaneously active applications within the device to maximize user-friendliness and streamline document workflow.
«Canon considers the inclusion of MEAP architecture a key workflow differentiator for our customers,’ said Dennis Amorosano, director and assistant general manager of the Integrated Business Systems Division of Canon U.S.A. «We launched the Canon MEAP architecture in a mid-range line of MFP models last May to help businesses improve productivity and reduce costs. With the imageRUNNER 2220/3320 Series we’re proud to offer the same extensive customization capabilities and powerful network connectivity to an expanded array of business users, including smaller enterprises and corporate workgroups.»
The compact, energy-efficient imageRUNNER 3320N/3320i and 2220N/2220i are 33 page-per-minute (ppm) and 22-ppm(*) digital black-and-white copier-based MFPs, respectively. All offer Canon’s superior image quality and support true 600 x 600 dpi resolution, 1200 x 600 dpi interpolated copy resolution, and 2400 x 600 dpi interpolated print resolution. The operation and programming capabilities of the imageRUNNER 2220/3320 Series are quick and intuitive, and offer multiple points of control: at the device, from a desktop, or using Canon’s standard full-color, touch-screen user interface panel. All four models ship standard with Ethernet network connectivity and a Canon-designed Printer Kit with support for PCL 5e/6 and PostScript 3(TM) emulation page description languages.
Continuous innovation has been the hallmark of Canon’s extensive line of multifunction products, and the company has long been recognized as the market share leader in the digital imaging marketplace(**). Canon MEAP architecture is a unique, open, Java-based development platform for Canon imageRUNNER MFPs that permits unprecedented application design flexibility for customers. Ushering in a new era of office automation, MEAP architecture resides as a functional capability on the imageRUNNER, enabling Canon, third-party developers and customers themselves to develop applications that automate and control any aspect of document workflow right from the user interface, without the need for a separate workstation or other hardware.
Through Canon’s Universal Send network scanning and distribution capabilities, and integration with eCopy’s suite of document distribution solutions, the imageRUNNER 2220/3320 models serve as a centralized office communications hub for information sharing and knowledge management across an extended enterprise.
Canon’s Universal Send network scanning and distribution capabilities, standard on the imageRUNNER 2220i/3320i models, make collaboration an affordable reality for smaller businesses and workgroups. Users can scan and distribute information to multiple destinations, including individual or groups of e-mail and Internet-fax addresses, internal mailboxes and network or host folders and Super G3 Fax destinations(***)(optional), as well as to document management applications such as Canon’s imageWARE application. New Universal Send network capabilities include the ability to preview a document prior to sending and to register up to five LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) servers for access to company-wide email addresses. Each imageRUNNER 2220i/3320i also will ship standard with a 10-user version of the eCopy Desktop software (optional with 2220N/3320N models).
eCopy’s ShareScan OP software, expected to be available later this quarter, extends document distribution functionality on 2220 and 3320 models through its extensive support for third party applications including e-mail, LAN Fax, and document management software. Unlike previous versions of eCopy ShareScan, ShareScan OP will run embedded within imageRUNNER 2220/3320 Series models, eliminating the need for external hardware, and strengthening already robust enterprise level management capabilities in the software.
Building upon the award-winning design of previous imageRUNNER devices, the imageRUNNER 2220/3320 Series offers productivity enhancements and exceptional multifunction performance including a 250Mhz processor, 256MB RAM and a 10GB hard disk as standard equipment. Each model also ships standard with a Document Feeder and Image Reader (scanner). New features include user authentication (both Simple Device Login and Single Sign On) and a host of productivity-enhancing copy features, such as Scan-Once-Print-Many, Copy Reservation, Automatic Trayless Duplexing, Cascade/Remote Copy, Page Numbering, and Forms Composition.
The imageRUNNER 2220/3220 Series will be available in October 2003 through authorized Canon U.S.A. dealers and Canon Business Solutions locations at the suggested retail prices below:
— imageRUNNER 2220N, $8,910
