"As a marketing services provider, I'm always looking for technologies
that will help me offer new solutions and value added services to my
clients, yet I don't want to maintain several separate pieces of

that can help our clients expand their customers' production printing
needs," said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing,
Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. "While many digital
presses address the growing market trend toward shorter print runs and
faster turnaround times, our new color imagePRESS offerings can also
meet the demand customers still have for the image quality and output
options once only achieved by offset technology."
Wider Variety of Aplications
Since first introduced in 2006, Canon's imagePRESS line of digital
presses has been adept at producing marketing collateral, direct mail
pieces, newsletters, and other similar output on paper sizes from 7.2" x
7.2"up to 13" x 19". With enhanced media handling capabilities and
optional accessories available for the new imagePRESS series, a wider
range of applications are enabled:
A new Professional Booklet Maker enables the imagePRESS to
produce up to 30-sheet (120 pages) saddle-stitched booklets with a
professional square fold spine. Previous versions only supported
A new Ring Binder allows the imagePRESS to produce
professionally bound manuals and books in-line, requiring less bindery
equipment and fewer manual touches to create a finished piece.2
Late Stage Job Editing
Clients deploying the imagePRESS C7011VPS/C6011VPS/C6011S models will
benefit from PRISMAsync v3.1, the latest version of the company's
production management software that includes several new capabilities
that provide greater control of the workflows that are prevalent in
commercial printing environments, such as:
Extended Job Manipulation allows operators to make changes to a
job even after it has been submitted to the print controller, helping
to reduce the need for operators to push back on pre-press to
re-submit the job. In addition, color management settings are applied
whenever the media type is changed to help ensure output consistency
and optimal image quality.
DocBox and Page Programming allow pre-press departments
to assign jobs to specific operators who can then store work in their
own folder for future use as well as make simple adjustments to
specific pages within a document at the imagePRESS control panel.
Variable Data Printing enhancements that give operators the
ability to print specific records of a VDP job by defining the records
at the control panel. In addition, record-based jam recovery helps
ensure that all records of a job are printed.
The imagePRESS C7011VPS/C7011VP series of digital color presses will be
available for customer delivery through Canon Authorized Dealers and
Canon Solutions America at the manufacturer's suggested retail price
(MSRP) starting at $104,790.** For more information please visit www.usa.canon.com.
