o LASER SHOT LBP7680Cx delivers fast, high quality and reliable printing to the office using Canon’s On-Demand Fixing System
o imageCLASS MF5980dw provides businesses with a robust set of features in a compact MFD footprint

Sydney, 31 October 2011: Canon Australia today announced the launch of two new desktop laser solutions targeted for small to medium businesses (SMBs) up to workgroups in larger business environments:
- The LASER SHOT LBP7680Cx is the first models in Canon’s new LBP ADVANCE range, which are designed to integrate directly into the business’ existing print solutions.
- The new imageCLASS MF5980dw combines the convenience of a multi-function device (MFD) with printer command language (PCL) and Adobe postscript, which eliminates the processing load from the business’ print server

LASER SHOT LBP7680Cx - the ideal business workhorse

The latest LASER SHOT LBP7680Cx is equipped with a host of features and technologies that deliver fast, high quality and reliable printing. With Canon’s Multifunction Embedded Application Platform (MEAP) environment, the new LBP7680Cx can be connected directly into the business’ back office systems and integrated with a range of MEAP applications such as uniFLOW.

With its single management platform, uniFLOW complements the MFP’s central role, enabling businesses to get a grip of cost and security, while providing a boost to worker productivity. uniFLOW allows businesses to issue print usage reports and attribute the associated cost to a department or user level. Awareness of the financial impact of printing increases dramatically, while simple options such as setting all printers to black and white and duplex by default also help to significantly reduce paper usage to lower costs across the business.

By adopting Canon’s unique On-Demand Fixing System, the LBP7680Cx provides businesses with low stand-by power consumption of less than 23 watts on average, together with quick start-up - with first page out in less than 16 seconds - helping to save time and money.

imageCLASS MF5980dw - full-featured MFD with a compact footprint

The MF5980dw is the first MFD in Canon’s imageCLASS line-up to have Wi-Fi connectivity. Businesses can benefit from eliminating unnecessary network cabling; doing away with the need to lay additional cables or placing the MFD in specific positions in the office.

Designed to deliver robust performance to meet the needs of even a large enterprise environment, the MF5980dw boasts integrated Printer Command Language (PCL) and genuine Adobe Postscript support to seamlessly fit into the existing print environment of even large enterprises

When cartridges need to be replaced, Canon’s all-in-one cartridge system means that users can swap it themselves without the need for a technician. As each cartridge contains the toner, photosensitive drum, transfer belts and waste toner, each time a cartridge is changed it is the equivalent to performing a periodic maintenance. Businesses will benefit from increased up-time and productivity, while service issues and total cost of ownership are also reduced over the course of the MFD’s life time.

Fast and energy efficient, the imageCLASS MF5980dw is capable of copy and print speeds of up to 33 pages per minute (ppm). The MF5980dw is also energy star certified and consumers only 2.3 watts of power in sleep mode, helping your business keep electricity costs down.

“Technology will be at the heart of business change over the next 10 years. It’s imperative that Canon’s customers have access to features and technologies that allow them to keep pace with the way their businesses are changing, particularly in light of the widespread phenomenon of technology consumerisation in the workplace,” said Jeff Peake, product manager - laser, Canon Australia.

“Every business strives to increase productivity, as it seeks to do more with less. If you don’t embrace change or adopt new technologies to enable new ways of working, then you’ll never know if you could increase your productivity.”

The LASER SHOT LBP7680Cx and imageCLASS MF5980dw are now available from October, 2011.
