Canon U.S.A. Announces Expanded Laser Printer Lineup with Two New imageRUNNER …

With the needs of small businesses, enterprise workgroups, and Managed
Document Services in mind, Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in imaging
solutions, today announced the expansion of its printer lineup with the
launch of two new laser printers. The Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 and the
imageRUNNER LBP3480 each provide compact color and monochrome printing,
respectively, while also delivering low energy use, excellent usability,
ease of management, and exceptional integration with Canon’s imageRUNNER

Powerful and effective as standalone desktop printers, each model is
designed to seamlessly integrate with and complement Canon’s imageRUNNER
ADVANCE MFPs workflow. Through a common tool set including imageWARE
Enterprise Management Console, uniFLOW, and unified print drivers, small
businesses, enterprise workgroups and Managed Document Services
customers and providers can create a cohesive, consistent, and easily
managed printing solution. Utilizing MEAP – Canon’s pioneering
application platform – the two new models extend the value of customers’
investments by bringing MFP workflows to the desktop printer. The first
of several MEAP applications for the models will be uniFLOW, allowing
users to easily release secured print jobs from the highly flexible
uniFLOW document output server without the need for release station

“The economy has driven companies to be flexible and to invest
intelligently in printing solutions that save time, energy and money,”
said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing,
Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “The newest additions to
the imageRUNNER lineup have been developed with these needs in mind, and
bring a small-format, low-cost device with advanced features that fit
into practically every printing workflow.”

The Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 and the imageRUNNER LBP348 fully supports
imageWARE Remote and Canon’s innovative Content Delivery System.
imageWARE Remote, Canon’s eMaintenance solution, allows Canon Authorized
Dealers to proactively and securely monitor usage, relay status, and
even report errors, saving customers valuable time and resources. The
Content Delivery System allows service providers to deliver remote
firmware and software updates to customers with limited or no business
interruption. The standard DeviceLink integration can also automatically
route inbound faxes from an imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFP to the new printer
models, making receiving faxes both more convenient and secure, while
cutting costs by reducing the number of fax lines an organization needs.
The combination of these management and collaboration tools, combined
with MEAP technology, brings advanced MFP solutions and features to a
small-format desktop printer.

Ease of Use and Convenience

To increase ease of use and simplify operation for general users, the
two new printers are equipped with a 5-line LCD. The panel features
on-screen navigation with a scrolling display to facilitate device use
as well as animations to help guide operations. The aforementioned
imageWARE Remote, CDS, and Device Link streamline usage for
administrators and users alike. For added convenience, both models
include popular features from the imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs lineup
including: USB Direct Print, allowing users to print documents from a
USB drive without a computer; and Encrypted Secured Print, enabled with
the optional SD Card. The optional SD card also enables Mail Box storage
for frequently used jobs and Email Printing, allowing a user to simply
send an email to the printer to print the message and supported attached

Low Environmental Impact

Although the new devices are a powerful and productive addition to any
printer fleet, they can also help support customers’ environmental
goals. The Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 and imageRUNNER LBP3480 desktop
printers follow Canon’s environmentally conscious design philosophy and
offer class-leading low energy usage, meeting all ENERGY STAR and RoHS
requirements through the eco-conscious design. Canon’s patented RAPID
Fusing Technology is employed for fast warm-up, and each model uses a
very low 1W of power in sleep mode. Beyond these energy-saving features
each model avoids hazardous substances in the manufacturing process and
uses plant-based bioplastic for certain parts. Canon also provides free
return of spent toner cartridges to its state-of-the-art, zero landfill
cartridge recycling facility.
