Canon U.S.A. Updates Large Format Printers to Improve Convenience and …

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Apr 02, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging and office solutions,
today unveiled four new 36-inch imagePROGRAF large format models –the
iPF765, iPF765 MFP, iPF760, and iPF760 MFP — which make printing large
format technical documents more efficient for design and engineering
professionals working in personal and small workgroups. Each device has
a new horizontal stacking basket for 24” x 36” plots, ensuring prints
stay organized and flat once they have been printed. To create a
one-piece solution, the imagePROGRAF MFP printers are equipped with a
new integrated stand, allowing the printer and scanner to be attached.
In addition, both new imagePROGRAF iPF765 models have a 250 GB hard
drive (of which 32 GB is dedicated file-processing memory) to streamline
the workflow for a networked environment or for those printing
larger-sized files with complex images.

The new, versatile Canon imagePROGRAF printers are optimized for use by
professionals in a variety of different markets including Computer-Aided
Design (CAD); Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC);
Geographical Information System (GIS) and other technical document
professional areas to produce large technical documents or posters in
color. The included software utilities are highly valuable to users in
the retail signage industry as well as general office environments. The
ability to quickly print technical documents up to 2400 x 1200
dots-per-inch (dpi) with precise lines can provide a tremendous
professional advantage for organizations that rely on this speed and
accuracy to stay relevant in a competitive market.

Both the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF765 MFP and iPF760 MFP imaging systems
provide a wide range of features and workflow solutions making for an
extraordinary value to many different types of printing environments. In
addition to the new integrated stand, both models feature the ability to
use a new swivel monitor mounting system for easy maneuvering of the
monitor toward the front of the printer. Each printer ships with the
most-recent SmartWorks MFP software which has all the tools a customer
needs to easily print, copy, scan or edit large format technical
documents. The system also features a Ci C40 color scanner with a
40-inch scan width for A0, D and architectural E-size scans and true
600dpi optical resolution.

“The update to the imagePROGRAF printers represents Canon’s dedication
to companies in the large format printing market,” said Sam Yoshida,
vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging
Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “Canon has taken an award-winning solution
in the imagePROGRAF series and listened to our customers on how we could
improve it. With the flatbed stacking we have now enhanced the user’s
productivity and efficiency making these devices a natural fit to meet
customer demands.”

The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF765, iPF765 MFP, iPF760 and iPF760 MFP
printers are designed with the everyday workgroup in mind, with an easy
installation option against a wall to save precious space in an
organization’s workspace. These ENERGY STAR-certified models maximize
productivity and ease-of-use with media loading and ink replacement from
the front of the machine and a sub-ink tank system that ensures
uninterrupted printing.

All four Canon imagePROGRAF models ship with Printer Driver (PC only)
Optimization Module for AutoCAD and also have a new interface lock
system that enhances the security functions and provides an option for
administrative control to determine who can have access. Enhanced
accounting functions are also included to collect printer job log
information such as client ID, ink and media consumption, media type and
output size. Users are able to efficiently and easily obtain estimated
printing costs from this technology as an easy way to track in-house
usage or for billing customers. A Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office
also ships with all new models, enabling users of any skill level to
create large format printouts of documents, images or illustrations that
were created by Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint programs.

The Canon imagePROGRAF models are scheduled to be available in mid-April
through Authorized Canon Dealers, Premier Partner Resellers and
Authorized Distributors.

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) is $4,995 for the
iPF765 printer, $8,995 for the iPF765 MFP printer, $4,495 for the iPF760
printer and $8,495 for the iPF760 MFP printer.
