Canon Launches imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2025i


LONDON – Canon Europe announced the expansion of its imageRUNNER ADVANCE multifunctional device (MFD) color A3 range with the launch of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2025i.

The new device combines the cost efficiency, enhanced network security and environmental benefits provided by the full C2000 series with copy and print speeds of 25ppm to help increase office worker productivity.

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE platform continues to grow strongly in terms of sales and market share. Since its launch in October 2009, the successful platform has achieved sales of more than 100,000 units globally. In Q1 2011 Canon’s A3 color devices out grew that of the overall market, with sales in 30-49ppm segment more than doubling.

The Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2020i also demonstrated “flawless reliability” in BLI’s 35,000-impression durability test. Following extensive independent testing, BLI rated the device as an “outstanding performer” with “excellent reliability and exceptional ease of use.”

The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C2025i offers the same outstanding quality, usability, security and seamless integration in customer environments as the existing models, with an extremely small footprint. Its advanced design architecture reduces running costs and maximizes uptime, while features like secure print, data encryption, digital user and device signatures, as well as hard disk removal, allow customers to better secure the integrity of business documents and information. 

The new MFD also offers environmental benefits, such as fast warm up speeds of 38 seconds or less and very low power consumption (1.5W) in sleep mode. Other features include a 5.7” TFT VGA Color Touch Screen, print resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi, paper capacity of up to 2000 sheets, and the ability to handle A5R to SRA3 paper formats.

In response to increasing customer demand, the full C2000 range can now be equipped with mailbox functionality through MailBoxLite; a newly developed MEAP application that allows users to store documents in a personal mailbox on the multifunctional device. This is particularly suitable for workgroups and departments where the device is shared by multiple users and located away from the users’ desks. MailBoxLite enables users to choose when they collect their documents from the device, limiting the number of trips to the printer and the security risk associated with uncollected documents.
