Canon imageRUNNER LBP5280 and LBP3480 Desktop Laser Beam Printers – robust printers for SMBs and Enterprise Workgroups

By Databazaar Blog

Canon_imageRUNNER_LBP5280_LBP3480

The imageRUNNER LBP5280 and LBP3480 are Canon’s latest additions to their imageRUNNER line of printers. These desktop models have been designed to meet the printing needs of small and medium sized businesses and enterprise workgroups. The LBP5280 is a color printer while the LBP3480 prints only B&W.

Both models incorporate the RAPID Fusing System which provides exceptional image quality and needs almost zero warm-up time, besides consuming less heat and energy. Fast processing of complex print jobs is boosted by the scalable 768 MB RAM. The LBP5280 is capable of print speeds of up to 21 ppm (Letter) in both B&W and Color. The LBP3480 is faster with speeds of up to 35 ppm (Letter). Standard Automatic Trayless Duplexing is part and parcel of both models, so you can print on both sides of the paper and reduce paper consumption.

Though the standard print resolution is 600 x 600 dpi, you can get crisp sharp text and image output that is equivalent to 2400 x 600 dpi. The 5-line scrolling LCD and user-friendly control panel enables quick and easy navigation and lets you view toner and paper levels as well as status at a glance.

You can connect USB memory devices and USB cards to the two USB ports that are located at the front and back of the printer to facilitate USB-direct printing. With this feature you can directly print PDF, JPEG, TIFF and XPS file formats without using a PC. The Secure Print, Mail Box Print and Email Print features are available with the use of the optional SD card.

The front loading design for paper, toner, fuser and drum makes these printers compact and easy to maintain. You can integrate these printers on the network with imageRUNNER ADVANCE MFP systems and set up workflows to route print jobs and inbound faxes to your LBP printers thereby reducing the number of fax lines.

The LBP5280 and LBP3480 printers can be easily managed using Canon’s scalable imageWARE EMC utility that facilitates centralized management of printers and multifunction devices from Canon as well as other vendors.

Canon PIXMA PRO-1 - the essential tool for the professional photographer

By Databazaar Blog

Canon_PIXMA_PRO-1

The Canon PIXMA PRO-1 professional inkjet printer redefines print quality and precision. This printer features the new LUCIA 12-ink system which combined with the FINE print head delivers stunning pictures that are very close to the originally captured image. The five monochrome inks deliver dramatic grayscale photo prints and the enhanced black densities deliver a wider range of shades especially in the darker areas of the image.

According to Canon, the PIXMA Pro-1 can deliver an 11" x 14" print in approximately 2 minutes and 55 seconds thereby enhancing productivity. The Optimum Image Generating (OIG) system used in the PIXMA Pro-1 delivers superior balance of color production, tones and uniform glossiness. The Chroma Optimizer controls ink height over the print to maintain the natural integrity of the picture.

The two-way paper feed for standard papers and the dedicated manual feed for easily loading thick paper, ensure a smooth workflow by eliminating wastage due to skewed prints. The large individual ink tanks of the LUCIA system are 2.5 times larger than conventional ink tanks; so you spend less time replacing inks and more time printing.

The PIXMA Pro-1 has the built-in capability to print onto printable DVD, CD and Blu-Ray discs and jackets. It also supports computer-free printing by allowing you to directly plug-in your compatible digital camera, DV camcorder or camera phone. The Easy-PhotoPrint Pro plug-in software is compatible with Digital Photo Professional (ver. 2.1 or later), Adobe® Photoshop® CS, Adobe® Photoshop Elements®, and Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®.
