Canon announced the latest additions to the extensive lineup of A3 and A4 color and monochrome laser multi-function devices (MFD) – the imageRUNNER ADVANCE (iR-ADV) DX C3900i series, iR-ADV DX 8900i series, iR-ADV DX 4900i series, iR-ADV DX C359i, iR-ADV DX 619i, imageRUNNER (iR) 2900i series and iR C3326i. Building upon Canon’s current imageRUNNER ADVANCE and imageRUNNER offerings, the new MFDs are ideal for today’s diverse work environments, providing businesses with excellent functionality from productive workflows to preventative security measures.
“Canon continues to push forward innovative devices for an increasingly evolving work environment. The latest range of imageRUNNER ADVANCE and imageRUNNER devices integrate technologies that allow businesses to work more efficiently, safely, and securely,” said Mr. Kenichiro Kitamura, Director of Office Imaging Products (OIP). “With Canon’s business solutions, we help simplify business complexities while enabling business agility and digital transformation.”
Safeguarding Business Data against External Threats
The iR-ADV and iR MFDs provide a range of preventative security measures that is increasingly important in the current digital workplace. Verify System at Startup and McAfee Embedded Control verifies the integrity of the system and checks for any tampering from startup to operation, preventing attacks from malware or unauthorized modifications.
Depending on the type of abnormality detected during startup, the device can automatically reboot to recover, minimizing downtime. Notably, the iR-ADV MFDs also support Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 to safely encrypt critical data stored on the MFDs, further protecting it against malware.
Boosting Workplace Productivity
Designed for optimal ease of use, the MFDs share similar features on the user interface (UI) across iR-ADV and iR devices, providing a consistent experience. Smart Timeline feature displays the history of the last 10 settings used, helping users save time spent on repetitive operations. The MFDs also provide users with the ability to customize preferences, offering personalization of initial display screen, display language and frequently used functions. Users can streamline repetitive operations, significantly improving productivity.
Managing Prints Usage
With businesses shifting to cloud-based solutions, the new MFDs lineup works seamlessly with Canon’s proprietary uniFLOW Online, a cloud-based print management solution that helps businesses manage their print environments. uniFLOW Online provides businesses with central control by tracking print, scan, and copy usage. Administrators can review the information within the uniFLOW Online Dashboard and identify potential areas for cost reduction. The solution also helps strengthen security by preventing unauthorised access with device authentication.
The MFDs are now available for ordering through authorised Canon distributors and dealers.
