Delivering new color capabilities to the light production marketplace, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital document imaging, introduced the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9075 PRO and C9065 PRO multifunction products.
"These new imageRUNNER ADVANCE models will provide high-speed color and black-and-white performance, exceptional print quality, advanced finishing and media support, solutions integration and reliability," said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A, Inc. "The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9075 PRO and C9065 PRO models will open up new opportunities for digital color printing in light production environments."
Building upon the Company's recent success in the production marketplace, these new models round out Canon's digital color solutions portfolio to help meet the growing needs of a vast array of production users, from small copy centers 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 Yoshida. "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."
