PHILADELPHIA--Oct. 27, 2004-- Scanvec Amiable, announced today a major new business initiative. Scanvec Amiable has developed a software and hardware system for the color copier market which will be distributed by Canon Sales Japan. This system, called Pingo is designed to expand a color copier to a fully networked digital printer. Canon Sales Japan has signed a distribution agreement with Scanvec Amiable to sell Pingo with their CLC 1100 series.
Pingo Accelerated RIP Server expands the line-up of exclusive controllers for the CLC 1100 series. Pingo is a turn-key, hardware and software solution, designed to expand the Canon CLC copier into a full-color digital network printing suite. Pingo delivers fast, accurate, yet affordable, color printing results for a large variety of file types, and its characteristics are an excellent cost performance solution.
Thanks to Pingo's unmatched ease-of-use, both novice and advanced Canon CLC users can now effortlessly boost their productivity with Pingo's high quality, fast printing rates and color accuracy. Featuring the robustness and dependability of Linux and a complete client/server RIP and Print system, Pingo's services are client agnostic, seamlessly compatible with both Windows and Mac work environments.
"Introducing Pingo is a major milestone for our company; as a provider of RIP based solutions, releasing a color copier controller takes us to another level in the market," states Dr. Ramon Harel, CEO of Scanvec Amiable. "We value and are proud of the relationship with Canon and I believe we have a bright future with Pingo."
