Canon Empowers Businesses with Entry Level Large Format Scan-to-Copy/File Systems

Friday, November 06, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

MELVILLE, N.Y. - Having the tools to grow your business is essential in today's economic climate. Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announced an industry benchmark by offering two affordable large format scan-to-copy/file systems, the imagePROGRAF iPF770 MFP L36 and the imagePROGRAF iPF670 MFP L24. This new series of economically priced, user-friendly Multi-Function Printers (MFPs) require a minimal learning curve and offer intuitive software solutions. The new L-series complements the current iPF MFP M40 imaging systems which provide more advanced functionality for higher volume scanning and editing capabilities.

Designed for workplaces where space is at a premium, both models feature a lightweight, compact design with a minimal office footprint. Equipped with a 36-inch scanner and printer, and requiring little to no user experience, the imagePROGRAF iPF770 MFP L36 MFP is a reliable large format copying solution for lowvolume architecture, engineering and contracting businesses. Equally as straightforward as its larger counterpart, the imagePROGRAF iPF670 MFP L24 MFP features a 24-inch scanner and printer to provide small businesses and educators with the tools to easily scan, copy and print documents.

"Regardless of the business's income or an employee's level of experience, Canon provides affordable and intuitive systems to meet the large format scanning needs of nearly any type of business," said Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "As the entry-level counterpart to the iPF MFP M40, these new imagePROGRAF devices can inspire companies to perform their own large format scanning, and feel confident they have the tools needed to archive, print and distribute maps, technical documents, and renderings along with anything else that needs to be saved."

Simplified User Experience

The economically priced L-series solutions feature imagePROGRAF printers with five-color dye/pigment ink with a Sub-Ink Tank System and top media loading system. Featuring a simple, integrated control panel, the new L-series scanner provides an intuitive scan-to-copy interface, allowing users to operate the scanner with the push of a button. Building upon the success of the imagePROGRAF iPF MFP M40 systems, the scanners also include SingleSensor Technology* for more consistent, accurate color replication.

With scan modes ranging from Draft to Best, the scanners allow users to easily regulate image quality. Additionally, both models feature a selection of commonly used print features including the cost savings Economy Print Mode and the ability to auto crop borders while also allowing users to control the number of copies and adjust brightness and exposure as desired. These systems also include software solutions such as PosterArtist Lite, Direct Print & Share1, Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office® and the imagePROGRAF Print Utility App2.


These new imagePROGRAF devices are available now to order for a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $5,995 for the imagePROGRAF iPF770 MFP L36 and an MSRP of $4,095 for the imagePROGRAF iPF670 MFP L24. These systems will be available to ship later this quarter.**
