Canon U.S.A. Launches imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 Series of Color Multifunction Office Systems
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Designed for busy workgroups that demand efficient workflow in a compact
space, the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 series of color multifunction
office systems from Canon (News - Alert) U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging
solutions, allows users to gather, organize and disseminate information
to help them meet the unique needs of their office environments.
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 Series is built on the next-generation
imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform. Launched last year, this platform is
designed to be the core of digital business communications where imaging
technology, cloud connectivity, and mobile solutions converge. Each new
model brings a variety of enhancements to the design, workflow, control,
performance and environmentally conscious attributes.
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2230 and imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2225 produce up
to 30 pages-per-minute (ppm) and up to 25 ppm output, respectively, for
both color and monochrome letter-size prints, while featuring a scan
rate of up to 51 images per minute. Both models have a maximum paper
capacity of 2,270 sheets and can handle up to 12" x 18" paper. With the
ability to access and leverage the capabilities of other connected
imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices, these models can not only serve as a
stand-alone multifunction device in a small or remote office but also as
an addition to an existing fleet of devices in an enterprise setting.
"With the ability to integrate hardware and software solutions, the
imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 series allows organizations to customize their
devices to best fit the way they work," said Sam Yoshida, vice president
and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon
U.S.A. "These intelligently designed, highly flexible systems can be
easily updated or added as the needs of the business change and
integrated with other devices to strengthen and grow fleet environments."
With an intuitive interface displayed on a seven inch, full-color,
tiltable, high-resolution TFT screen, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200
Series helps users accomplish tasks quickly and effectively. The main
menu provides instant access to commonly used functions, and on-screen
quick menu buttons can be customized to meet specific departmental or
user needs. Fitting in a space as small as 34" x 27", its compact size
is achieved with innovations such as Canon's space-saving vertical toner
transfer technology and the availability of an optional internal staple
finisher that provides professional-quality output without adding to the
Like all imageRUNNER ADVANCE models, the C2200 series can serve as a
digital communications hub, integrating enterprise applications,
connecting to certain cloud applications, linking to other devices in a
company's fleet, and giving users the ability to work efficiently from
anywhere. With drag-and-drop functionality, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE
Desktop Quick Printing Tool allows users to print, fax and convert files
to PDF format without opening the native application. These new models
are also equipped to take advantag of several mobile and cloud-based
solutions - customizable for different needs and price points - that
enable users to securely print and scan from a variety of mobile devices
such as laptops, iPad® tablets and iPhone® or BlackBerry (News - Alert)® smartphones.
To help automate complex business processes, Canon offers MEAP-Web to
allow applications to be developed via web services with integration on
the device through the imageRUNNER ADVANCE Web Access software option.
This allows in-house developers, partners and integrators to build
customized solutions that leverage information from back-end enterprise
applications such as ERP, CRM, and content management systems.
As security and control become increasingly important, Canon provides
tools to easily configure a system, migrate settings, safeguard data and
track resources. With new imageWARE Enterprise Management Console
plug-ins, an entire fleet of imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices can be
centrally monitored for usage information, updated with the latest
firmware, and configured with new applications and settings.
With Canon's server-less Advanced Anywhere-Print (AA-Print) solution
that includes a login application called Universal Login Manager, users
can print to a connected Canon device and retrieve their documents after
authentication at any supported Canon device on their network, and IT
administrators can track usage and enforce printing controls when
needed. Each model is also equipped with a tamper-resistant security
chip, which protects passwords and encryption keys. In addition, the
standard HDD Data Erase and HDD Lock features help protect information
even after the hard drive is removed.
The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 series incorporates Canon's
state-of-the-art imaging technology for reliable delivery of crisp,
clear output. In addition, fast and consistent processing speed is
delivered through Canon's advanced imageCHIP architecture that features
two dedicated processors that work together to accomplish multiple tasks
simultaneously. These models also feature a new Quick Startup mode that
allows users to get started in as little as seven seconds from Main
To further enhance productivity and flexibility of the imageRUNNER
ADVANCE C2200 series, a variety of paper feeding, finishing, printer,
security and accessibility options are available for an additional cost,
including a booklet finisher, an external staple finisher, and an
additional cassette feeding unit.
Users will benefit from energy-saving and environmentally conscious
features built into the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2200 series. The new models
have a low Typical Energy Consumption (TEC) value and consume very
little energy during sleep mode. Print drivers are defaulted to duplex
documents, encouraging two-sided printing to reduce waste. Organizations
can further control their resources through intelligent device
management solutions that help optimize the use of toner and paper. In
addition, the combination of fusing technologies and low melting point
toner helps lower overall energy consumption.
Maintaining Canon's commitment to lowering environmental burdens, the
new models employ components fabricated with 100 percent recycled
plastic from retired products. They also include bio-based plastic, a
plant-derived compound that replaces certain petroleum-based plastic
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2230 and the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2225 are
available through Canon authorized dealers and Canon Solutions America,
Inc. at manufacturer's suggested retail prices of $9,660 and $6,615,
respectively*. More information on these models and the entire next
generation imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform can be found at www.usa.canon.com/SimplyAdvanced
