Canon launches smart, reliable and affordable multifunctional printers for small workgroups

LONDON, 2 May 2016 - Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, today announces the launch of the imageRUNNER 2204 series, expanding Canon’s award winning A3 multifunctional range with three black and white A3 models.

The new models are designed to handle the workloads of busy small workgroups with a 60,000 page duty cycle as well as fast and efficient black and white print, copy and colour scan at up to 22 ppm.

A new 8.89 cm touch screen and backlit display offers class-leading simplicity and the kind of ease of use available on higher end models to speed up every day operations and workflow. The user interface, driver and labels are all available in a wide range of languages and a customised home screen further simplifies use and access to key workflows. To help manage documents more efficiently, Canon’s MF Toolbox solution provides scan to email and folder with powerful OCR and compression capabilities whilst the ID Card Copy function simplifies copying of identification documents onto a single side of paper to save time and reduce waste.

Francis Thornhill, European Office Marketing Manager at Canon Europe, comments: “Businesses today are increasingly looking for operational efficiencies. The new models combine smart capabilities with affordability and Canon’s renowned reliability to help businesses handle documents faster and focus on their business priorities”.

The imageRUNNER 2204 model delivers core print, copy and scan functionality with the added benefit of a full toner included in the box¹ with yield of up to 10,200 pages.

For more demanding environments, the imageRUNNER 2204N also adds new levels of easy connectivity with ethernet and Wi-Fi as standard as well as support for mobile printing and scanning. Canon’s eRDS (Embedded Remote Diagnostic System) supports automatic toner management, diagnostics and meter collection to remove back-office burdens from customers. For open or shared spaces, access and use of the devices can be controlled through Dept ID authentication. For document intensive environments an optional automatic document feeder and double-sided printing saves time and waste.

At the top of the range, the imageRUNNER 2204F also adds fax and automatic document feeder as standard.

The imageRUNNER 2204 series will be available across Middle East and Africa from the June 2016.
