Japanese photographic and digital imaging solutions provider, Canon, recently introduced three new models to its imageRUNNER ADVANCE (iR-ADV) A3 colour series - the iR-ADV C3320, C3325 and C3330.
According to Canon, this new series is designed to bring the benefits of vivid and vibrant colours, improved user friendliness, and enhanced productivity to help small and medium sized business workgroups better collaborate among themselves and compete in the market.
The iR-ADV C3300 series feature a new engine that offers both efficiency and reliable high quality output. Instrumental to achieving this outcome is Canon's new V² (Vivid & Vibrant) imaging technology that enables workgroups to produce professional-looking colour documents in-house that deliver consistently strong brand impact, on-demand, and helping them stand out from the competition.
"Marketing materials and coloured documents must create maximum business impact and help companies stand out. As a market leader in the imaging space, we recognise that need and with the launch of the new colour iR-ADV series, we are confident that companies can enjoy quality printouts at an efficient cost of ownership," said Melvyn Ho, Senior Vice President, Domestic Operations Group, Canon Singapore Pte. Ltd.
Eco-, user- and energy-friendly
A new compact Inner Finisher combines both traditional stapling and eco-stapling in one to reduce waste as well as to simplify recycling and shredding.
The iR-ADV C3300 series also have an optional 3-in-1 Inner Finisher. On top of the normal stapling finish, users can leverage the Staple-on-Demand feature to staple their original documents together after scanning or printing, without needing to walk back to their desks. Meanwhile, the environmental-friendly Eco-Staple option enables users to bind a maximum of five sheets of paper together staples-free. Employees can then easily shred documents without having to remove any staples, improving workflow efficiency.
In addition, the iR-ADV C3300 series offer an onscreen Walkthrough Video, providing step-by-step instructions to guide users through consumables replacement with the choice of English, Chinese, or Japanese languages. Canon said that it intends to introduce more languages to ensure maximum user-friendliness across the region. With this new feature, employees need not spend additional time and effort on guesswork in troubleshooting, thus allowing them to focus on business that really matter.
Users also stand to enjoy improved cost efficiency as the administrative and management burden of print is removed through automatic toner management, remote diagnostics and automatic meter collection. The new devices also consume less than one watt of energy during sleep mode and are Energy Star certified, which gives them some of the lowest TEC ratings in the office device industry, claimed Canon.
Added security features for complete protection
This series is equipped with a Reminder LED light on the automatic document feeder that flashes upon scan and copy jobs completion. This reduces instances where employees leave confidential documents behind and prevent information leaks.
