Delivering new colour
capabilities to the light production marketplace, Canon Canada Inc., a leader
in digital document imaging, today introduced the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9075
PRO and C9065 PRO multifunction products.

“These new imageRUNNER ADVANCE models will provide high-speed colour and
black-and-white performance, exceptional print quality, advanced finishing and
media support, solutions integration and reliability,” said Mason Olds, Senior
Vice President and General Manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon Canada Inc.

“The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9075 PRO and C9065 PRO models will open up new
opportunities for digital colour printing in light production environments.”

Building upon the company’s recent success in the production marketplace,
these new models round out Canon’s digital colour solutions portfolio to help
meet the growing needs of a vast array of production users, from small copy
centres and quick print shops to high-end commercial print environments.

“Canon’s success in the production space has been largely based on its
ability to deliver a depth and breadth of quality products that are unrivaled
in the market,” added Olds. “The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE is no exception.
With a smaller footprint and cost that is easy to justify, these new models
from Canon will bring an outstanding level of quality and functionality to
this class.”


Built using an entirely new system and hardware platform, the new
imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9075 PRO/C9065 PRO models will be ideal for high-volume
colour environments, including Central Reprographics Departments (CRDs) and
Print Service Providers.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9075 PRO will produce letter-sized output at up
to 75-pages-per-minute (ppm) in black-and-white and 70 ppm in colour, while
the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9065 PRO will operate at up to 65 ppm in both
black-and-white and colour.

Incorporating a 10.4-inch upright full colour LCD control panel, the new
imageRUNNER ADVANCE models will have a new customizable user interface to help
define and simplify specific user workflows and allow users to be more
productive and efficient.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9075 PRO/C9065 PRO will also have robust and
flexible paper and media handling capacities. Through a variety of optional
hardware accessories, the new models will have a paper capacity up to 9,300
sheets and will support sizes up to 13 x 19.2-inches and with a weight up to
300gsm (110 lb. Cover). Coated Paper and Tab Paper are also supported.

The new models will come standard with Canon’s Ultra Fast Rendering II
(UFRII) printing technology, as well as optional Adobe PostScript 3 and PCL
5c/6 capabilities. For high colour intensive users, there will be new
imagePASS and ColorPASS print controller options available.

The new models will provide true 1,200 x 1,200 dots-per-inch (dpi) print
resolution. The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9075 PRO and C9065 PRO will deliver
exceptional output image quality, yielding smooth, vivid and well-defined
images by virtue of the new architecture and technologies.

Both models will utilize a new, high-capacity Single Pass Duplex Document
Feeder with scan speeds up to 200 images-per-minute (ipm) for black-and-white,
two-sided and letter-sized documents. In addition to fast output and scan
speeds, the new models will be available with a number of robust finishing
solutions, including multiple folding options, professional punching and
booklet trimming.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9075 PRO/C9065 PRO models are expected to be
available for customer delivery in the fourth quarter of 2009 through Canon
Authorized Dealers and Canon Canada’s Business Solutions Division.
