New Canon imageRUNNERs
By Jon Robinson
Two updated models have been added to Canon’s imageRUNNER line, first introduced in 1999. The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE includes models C9075 and C9065, designed for light-production environments, which are to be released by the end of 2009.
The 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 ADVANCE C9065 PRO will operate at up to 65 ppm in both black-and-white and colour. Both new models print at 1,200 x 1,200-dpi print resolution.
Through various, but optional hardware accessories, the new models can have a paper capacity of up to 9,300 sheets, while supporting sizes up to 13 x 19.2-inches and with a weight up to 300 gsm (110 lb. Cover). Coated paper and tab paper are also supported.
The new models include Canon’s Ultra Fast Rendering II (UFRII) printing technology, as well as optional Adobe PostScript 3 and PCL 5c/6 capabilities. For colour-intensive users, there will be new imagePASS and ColorPASS print controller options available. Both models will utilize a new, high-capacity Single Pass Duplex Document Feeder with scan speeds of up to 200 images-per-minute (ipm) for black-and-white, 2-sided and letter-sized documents.
