Having seen the release of the first models in the new imageRUNNER Advance photocopiers platform, 2009 was a very big year for Canon. But 2010 has been equally eventful. In April, came the launch of the new imageRUNNER 2500 monochrome photocopiers series – giving small and medium-sized businesses productive, cost-effective printing, copying and scanning in a robust and compact package. Then later in the spring, Canon announced two further imageRUNNER Advance ranges, the Canon imageRUNNER Advance 6000 and Canon imageRUNNER Advance 8000 photocopiers, providing the very highest standards of professional monochrome digital printing for medium-larger sized workgroup environments, Central Reprographics Departments (CRD’s) and the light production sector. Canon went on to release several new production printers within the imagePRESS range during summer and finally September saw the last models in the imageRUNNER Advance series released onto the market, the Canon imageRUNNER Advance C2020/30 colour photocopiers, for the highest quality small to medium-sized office printing. Here, we bring you all the most important developments from the world of Canon photocopiers from 2010 and look forward to the year ahead.

Canon Europe recently commissioned a report into businesses’ and organisations’ print management activities, discovering that on average businesses are losing an estimated 17,000 Euros a year, amounting to around 663 billion Euros across Europe as a whole; all this mainly on account of poor or inadequate print management. In the grip of the worst of the recession, back in August 2008, newspapers widely reported that in a desperate effort to stem the tide of some of these irrecoverable losses associated with poor print management, organisations as prominent as Citigroup were imposing quite draconian-sounding rules on their staff members’ printing, completely banning colour copying for internal meetings and removing photocopiers from any locations in which they weren’t deemed absolutely ‘essential’. But without adopting such a strong-arm approach, what should organisations more concerned about printing costs in the medium and longer term do to ensure they’re not pouring money down the drain and further contributing to environmental damage. Below, we offer-up three more considered suggestions as to how any organisation can go about improving its print management and reducing its printing costs.
Canon 'Scan-and-Print' - Scanning to and Printing from Canon imageRUNNER Advance Photocopiers/MFP's 'on the Cloud'!
Wednesday, 10 November 2010 08:00
Canon and Canon Marketing Japan recently launched a new scan and print application for the Canon imageRUNNER Advance photocopiers/MFP line-up. The new application will enable Canon imageRUNNER Advance users to scan documents directly from their photocopiers/copiers to Google Docs and Microsoft SharePoint Online, two of the market-leading solutions for document storage and document collaboration. Users will also be able to print from these applications to their Canon imageRUNNER photocopiers/copiers, on-the-cloud (when mobile). Scan-and-Print, which will be available to owners of Canon imageRUNNER Advance for free, was first launched in Japan around mid-December, and will later be released globally, first in the US and then in European, other Asian and Australian markets.

Earlier this year Canon Copiers reported on Canon’s amazing research and development achievements, with the company’s successful development of bioplastic parts for photocopiers, MFP’s, network printers and the likes, alongside its partner company, Toray, one of the world’s leading polymer material developers. Well now, Canon and Toray have taken that development effort one step further and were able to announce last week the successful full-scale manufacture of the largest ever exterior copier/photocopier part made from part plant-derived organic bioplastic. The part, which will be incorporated into the build of select imageRUNNER Advance copiers/photocopiers/network printers/MFP’s, also manages to achieve the world’s highest standards in flame retardance.
