Device Acts as Communications Hub With Universal Send Upgrade
NEW YORK CITY, April 23, 2002 -- Danka Business Systems PLC (NASDAQ: DANKY) today announced that it will integrate the new Canon imageRUNNER 7200 Networked Production System into its printing solutions for large workgroups and departments, as well as central reprographics departments.
"In addition to the excellent image quality and reliability offered by Canon’s imageRUNNER family, the iR 7200 offers a 10 gigabyte internal server and innovative office communications functions," said Todd Mavis, Danka’s U.S. group president and chief operating officer. "These features provide our customers with productive new ways to share documents that augment paper output and are consistent with our Danka @ the Desktop strategy."
The imageRUNNER 7200 combines 72 page-per-minute output speed with a duty cycle of up to 350,000 impressions per month as part of a flexible solution for black-and-white scanning, copying and printing. The copier can function as a flexible standalone unit or as a networked digital multifunction device. It offers up to six online paper sources with an overall capacity of 7,650 letter-size sheets, with the lower two paper cassettes supporting tab creation and insertion.
A comprehensive array of finishing options includes: collation, 2- and 3-hole punching, stapling, Z-folding, post-process document insertion and saddle-stitched booklet making.
The iR 7200 supports two controllers: the Canon Network Multi-PDL Printer Kit-B3 for text documents or predominantly PCL5e/6 jobstreams; or the imagePASS-M1 Print Controller, which is designed for complex jobstreams involving Adobe PostScript documents and graphics-intensive files.
Universal Send Functionality
This platform supports Canon’s Universal Send upgrade, which (when combined with eCopy Desktop Software) equips users to scan documents and deliver them to multiple destinations simultaneously. This capability can improve workgroup efficiency and reduce distribution costs.
Documents can be scanned at up to 55 pages a minute and sent as email attachments in TIFF, Multipage TIFF or PDF formats and as fax transmissions over the Internet. Files can also be routed to a variety of networked devices, including a server or centralized database, and to 100-user mail boxes that are included as part of the imageRUNNER 7200 platform.
"This device exceeds standard multifunctionality by offering enhanced storage and sending features, in addition to traditional copy, scan, and print functions," said Mavis.
The imageRUNNER 7200 ships standard with Canon’s remote user interface, which allows users to enter the IP address of the device from a standard web browser and gain instant access to device status, job management functions, and user mail boxes--without the need for any additional software.
These new systems can be integrated with Danka @ the Desktop to better manage document workflow, improve productivity, and lower overall document production costs. Danka @ the Desktop includes software, hardware, and professional services from Danka to solve the DocuMess.
