Océ Expands Desktop Printer Lineup with New Canon Color and Black & White Models

 TRUMBULL, CONN. May 14, 2012 – Océ, an international leader in digital document management, today announced that Océ North America Document Printing Systems is now selling the Canon Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 and Canon imageRUNNERLBP3480 desktop laser printers. These compact and affordable desktop printers can serve as a stand-alone device in a small office or enterprise workgroup or integrate within a fleet of imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs for greater office integration and convenience.

"Featuring a compact design, low energy consumption and innovative technology, these new Canon imageRUNNER laser printers offer an incredible value to any office environment," said John Reilly, President, Océ North America, Document Printing Systems. "These products deliver a blend of productivity, security and convenience to offices looking to bring greater reliability to their offices or support their existing imageRUNNER multifunctional systems."

With the Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 and the imageRUNNER LBP3480 models, device operation has never been easier. A five-line LCD features on-screen navigation and animations to help users set up their devices and complete tasks. Replacing toner and paper can be done through the models' front panels and files can be printed directly from a front-facing USB port. Both printers also feature Canon's pioneering Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform (MEAP) functionality, which allows users to run programs directly on their printers and easily communicate with Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFPs.

When combined with Canon software applications, greater device tracking and management is possible with the Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 and the imageRUNNER LBP3480 models. When imageWARE Enterprise Management Console software is used with the devices, administrators can remotely monitor the status of an entire fleet of MFPs. With imageWARE Remote software, Océ can securely monitor device usage and status to ensure greater device uptime, so users can focus on their core tasks. For enterprise businesses, these models can easily integrate with NT-WareuniFLOW software to help manage overall output activities including statistical data gathering and secured printing.

"We are excited to offer the Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 and imageRUNNER LBP3480 to Océ's customers," said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. "The newest additions to the lineup offer users a small-format, low-cost device with advanced features that fit into practically every printing workflow."

To allow users to further increase productivity, the Color imageRUNNER LBP5280 model outputs color and monochrome documents at up to 21 ppm (letter), while the imageRUNNER LBP3480 produces crisp black & white prints at up to 35 ppm (letter). For greater cost control, the models feature automatic duplex printing to reduce paper consumption and an energy consumption of just 1 W in Deep Sleep Mode helps users decrease their electrical costs.

The new printers strengthen Océ's MPS and Managed Document Services value delivering to customers consistent, fully integrated and easily managed print solutions. Using available tools such as imageWARE Enterprise Management Console, uniFLOW, (now available as an embedded MEAP application), and unified print drivers, monitoring, report generation, managing and efficiently using the MFP and printer fleet has never been easier. By utilizing MEAP – Canon's pioneering embedded application development platform – these two new printer models extend the value of customers' investments by bringing MFP workflows to the desktop printer.
