Press release from the issuing company

LAKE SUCCESS, NY Canon U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Japan-based Canon Inc. (NYSE: CAJ), today announced that the Canon imageRUNNER 210/330/400 Digital Imaging Systems, when used in conjunction with eCopy Inc. ShareScan 2000 Software with eCopier touch panel display, have received "Products of the Year 2000" awards from Imaging and Document Solutions Magazine. Combined, the solution was the sole digital copier/scanning software recipient this year. "Canon, having pioneered scanning on a digital copier platform over five years ago, is extremely pleased to be recognized today by Imaging and Document Solutions as providing one of the premier solutions available," said Dennis Amorosano, director of Copier and Networked Office Systems Division, Canon U.S.A. "Working with eCopy, we have jointly developed the most versatile and easy-to-use solution for converting and distributing paper-based and electronic information in corporate environments." According to Imaging and Document Solutions Magazine, "Canon and eCopy made sense of copier-based scanning last year by adding touch-screen control and image viewing to multifunction digital copiers. By combining the ShareScan 2000 package from eCopy with flexible imageRUNNER digital copiers from Canon, you can scan to network-based applications, e-mail or the Web with easy control and certain knowledge of what you are sending." The Canon imageRUNNER/eCopy ShareScan 2000 with eCopier touch panel display enables customers to use an imageRUNNER 210, 330, or 400 multifunction system to scan and distribute paper documents electronically by e-mail, network or IP Fax, or scan paper documents directly to their desktop. Documents such as contracts, invoices, sensitive legal documents, blueprints, and artwork can easily be delivered with substantial savings in time and money compared to traditional fax, overnight courier, or interoffice mail services. The product is fully compatible with Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 95/98 operating systems, and a wide variety of network environments such as NT Domains, Novell NetWare, and Unix. The partnership between eCopy, Inc. and Canon U.S.A, Inc., established in 1996, has resulted in extensive distribution and marketing agreements with Canon's Networked Office Systems Division. Since then, both companies have worked closely to educate dealers and customers about the eCopy/Canon solution, and how the related technologies continue to converge for a single solution for moving paper documents in a digital world.
