New generation of Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE
New generation of Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE creates exceptional user experience to increase productivity and efficiency in the workplace. Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE comprises outstanding V2 technology for brilliant images and best-in-class green technology.
Canon announced the launch of the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i series, the first A3 colour multifunction device in the line following the initial introduction of the new generation of imageRUNNER ADVANCE monochrome series earlier in April 2016. The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i series will include the models imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5560i/C5550i/C5540i/C5535i, which supports vivid and vibrant colour (V2 Colour) for printed documents, and has smart technology features to boost productivity for the modern office.
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i series features remarkable print speeds of up to 60 (A4) or 32 (A3) pages per minute, for both colour and monochrome. It also comes with a high degree of user presets as well as a high operational reliability with HDD security features to meet the diverse environments of mid-sized to large enterprises.
“The needs of the workforce have rapidly evolved, and we too, have constantly revamped our products to match the needs of the workforce,” said Vincent Low, Director & General Manager of Business Imaging Solutions, Canon Singapore. “The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i series is a strong opportunity for businesses to leverage Canon’s technologies and witness for themselves the benefits it brings.”
Exceptional user experience drives workplace productivity
Designed for users who are on the lookout on how to enhance their productivity levels, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i series is equipped with a capacitive 10.1 inch touchscreen panel with expanded functionalities. The intuitive interface enables authorised users to customise their user menu and create shortcuts simply by using the drag and drop function. Users are also able to view their documents on the panel before they store to a memory media or print them.
Another function that is new to the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i series is the Force Hold Printing function. It allows users to preview and edit print settings before releasing the temporarily held print jobs at the device. Unintended output options such as incorrect quantities and finishing can be rectified prior to printing, therefore reducing paper wastage and saving users the hassle of re-submitting print jobs. Individual preferences can also be integrated across the new generation of imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices via My ADVANCE Synchronisation. With this, users are assured of the same settings across the same fleet of print device.
Mobility and flexibility without compromising security
Businesses in pursuit of a more agile and interconnected workforce demand seamless connectivity in their work environments. The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i series comes standard with Wi-Fi connectivity via Direct Access Point and the updated Canon Print Business App allow users who rely on their mobile devices for work to enhance their efficiencies. Users are now able to connect their mobile devices to the imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices for printing and scanning and release print jobs directly from their smartphones.
With the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices, comprehensive HDD security comes standard with features such as HDD Data Erase, HDD Password Lock and HDD Encryption which is FIPS 140-2 validated.
Equipped with the Intelligent Document Feeder, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i series is designed to effectively handle documents for the smart-offices. Common bottlenecks faced by users in the course of document digitisation, such as double-feeding of originals and scanning of blank pages can be easily resolved by Multi-sheet Detection and Skip Blank Originals respectively. The time taken to process and organise documents is consequently reduced for a more productive workplace.
Eco-friendly design fosters business sustainability
Canon innovates with sustainability in mind – Canon has been awarded the Green Label Certification for the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5500i series. This certification is awarded by the Singapore Environment Council to companies which carry products with outstanding environmentally friendly traits1.
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform is designed with a strong consideration for sustainability. With the new Sleep ECO mode, only the necessary components for the user’s selected function (scanning, copying or printing) are roused from sleep recovery mode and thus, enabling even higher levels of energy conservation and savings2.
Through its Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) System, Canon has also lowered carbon dioxide emissions by focusing on each stage of the product life cycle, including manufacturing, energy use and logistics.
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5560i/C5550i/C5540i/C5535i are now available from Canon Singapore and at all Canon authorised Imaging Solution Partners.
