SINGAPORE - Canon today announced the launch of the first models in the newest generation of imageRUNNER ADVANCE (iR-ADV) A3 multi-function devices (MFDs) (iR-ADV 6255 / 6265 / 6275). The new iR-ADV comes in Titanium White and Damson Black to complement the increase in contemporary-designed offices with an emphasis on clean lines and neutral colour palettes.
"The needs of the modern workgroups are constantly changing, and Canon strives to be at the forefront of the industry. Our new generation series features a high level of connectivity and personalisation. These features were designed to create a user-centric platform to help users simplify workflow and increase their productivity at work," said Vincent Low, Director of Business Imaging Solutions, Canon Singapore.
Brilliance in Simplicity with Personalisation
The new generation of iR-ADV is designed around large workgroups, allowing for a high level of personalisation that begins with picture log-in for user authentication and the gateway to access My ADVANCE, a one-step approach to user customisation and enhanced security.
In an environment where employees of different nationalities work together, the new feature in the iR-ADV MFDs enables users to customise the default settings on the initial display screen to suit their preferred language, input their frequent document imaging tasks and even their own address list.
In this instance, My ADVANCE enables a user working on various projects to create secure Group Address lists accessible only to authenticated group members through the personalised Address Book on the new iR-ADV MFDs. The new level of personalisation is designed to enhance convenience for the user, allowing them to save time from searching and selecting specific users and minimising the chances of sending mail to unintended recipients with the same name.
These days, users demand interfaces that are easy to use, and the enhanced iR-ADV with the 10.1-inch touchscreen interface offers an intuitive experience with smartphone-like functionalities such as 'swipe and pinch.'
Intelligent Features Drive Productivity and Sustainability
The innovative Intelligent Recovery system on the new iR-ADV series detects users who are in proximity and achieves a quicker start-up from sleep mode for users' convenience. Even in the presence of possible users, the device will return to sleep mode after 30 seconds if it is not in use, thus optimising savings gained from power consumption.
The environmentally friendly ECO-staple is also an optional external finisher in the new iR-ADV series. This feature enables users to bind a maximum of five sheets of paper together staples-free and also facilitates easy shredding of documents without having to remove staples beforehand, thus improving workflow efficiency as well.
With connectivity vital for workers in the digital age, the latest iR-ADV series is further enhanced with standard Wi-Fi connectivity function, allowing users to print and scan wirelessly from their smart devices.
Reinforced Security for Confidence
The new user authentication system with picture log-in also helps to bridge security and control gaps, enabling better management of user access, where administrators would be able to isolate certain functions to specific users.
With the new iR-ADV devices, comprehensive Hard Disk Drive (HDD) security comes standard with features such as HDD Data Erase, HDD Password Lock and HDD Encryption which is FIPS 140-2 validated. These security features automatically overwrites and erases data as soon as the job is complete, thus reducing the risk of compromising sensitive information.
The Forced Details Output function lists specific information (date and time, user identification, device IP and serial number) on every printed page to facilitate higher security and control of printed documents. This is especially important when required to track the source of the printed document for a user who may have left behind confidential information.
The new monochrome iR-ADV 6255/6265/6275 series is now available at authorised Canon distributors and dealers in Singapore.
