Canon U.S.A. Introduce New imageClass MF Series MFPs For Small Businesses And Office Workgroups


Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of office imaging solutions, today introduced the latest additions to its award-winning imageCLASS product line, the imageCLASS MF7480, MF7470 and MF7460 laser multifunction products (MFPs). The new imageCLASS 7400 series provides ’big office’ workflow capabilities at a ’small office’ price tag, enhancing the productivity of burgeoning workgroups and busy small office environments.

The Canon imageCLASS MF7400 series performs printing and copying of letter-sized output at 25 pages-per-minute (ppm) with full duplexing capabilities for copying, printing, sending and faxing. This new imageCLASS series is designed for office environments where smaller office equipment is unable to handle the workload and large office equipment is not yet needed. The models accommodate sheet sizes up to 11 x17 inches for print, copy and fax capabilities. The imageCLASS MF7460 is the basic model in the series including all the functionality listed above, while the imageCLASS MF7480 and MF7470 models additionally provides built-in Ethernet providing network functionality for printing and scanning, and the MF7480 model also includes Canon’s Universal Send functionality.

“The new imageCLASS MF7400 series of MFPs offer Canon customers a variety of high-end office workflow tools in a reliable easy-to-use consumer device,” said Jim Rosetta, vice president and general manager, Imaging Filing Systems Group, Canon U.S.A., “The series provides customers with the right solution for their specific office needs to help them operate as efficiently as possible.”

Each model in the MF7400 series has full duplexing functionality for copy, print and fax as well as a 50-page 11x17 inch Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). The 50-page ADF facilitates rapid document scanning, copying and faxing of double-sided documents, helping to reduce office paper consumption. Each model is operated through a user-friendly VGA touch-screen interface. For those already familiar with Canon’s imageRUNNER product line, the imageCLASS MF7400 series is designed to provide high-end imageRUNNER functionality in a premier SOHO device.

The MF7400 series devices include copy, print and fax capabilities for paper up to 11 x 17 inches on both platen and ADF. All three models include two 250-sheet front-loading cassettes and a 100-sheet multipurpose tray. All three models also include a large touch-screen control interface for easy-to-use operation.

The imageCLASS MF7470 - a step up from the basic MF7460 model - incorporates full network connectivity for all MFP functions - print, fax and scan - making the device an ideal solution for multiple personnel offices. The MF7470 model adds the ability to perform scanning over the network with the ability to generate files in JPG, Tiff and PDF formats. The MF7470 also has the ability to perform network printing with both PCL5 and PCL6 support.

The imageCLASS MF7480 model includes all of the functionality of the MF7470, but also provides Canon’s Universal Send capabilities, which allows users to distribute scanned data to multiple destinations, including individuals or groups of e-mail and Internet Fax addresses, Fax destinations (requires Super G3 Fax single or dual line option), device Mail Boxes, network or host files and folders, and to document management applications, such as Canon imageWARE Document Manager.

Canon’s Universal Send helps customers improve their digital document distribution workflow when sending digital document information to e-mail addresses, network folders, mail boxes and Internet fax destinations.

All three of the models in the imageCLASS 7400 series bring added convenience with Canon’s Single Cartridge System only requiring one consumable to be stocked. This system utilizes one cartridge containing both the toner and drum unit, and is user replaceable. A full cartridge is included with the device with an approximate yield of 10,000 letter-sized pages (based on a five-percent density original).

The imageCLASS MF7480, MF7470, and MF7460 come with a standard one-year limited warranty at a suggested retail price of $4,995*, $3,995* and $2,995*, respectively, and will begin shipping to retailers in December 2007.
