Canon U.S.A. (Melville, NY), a leader in digital imaging solutions, has unveiled its imagePress Lite C170 Colour Multifunction Printer (MFP). Joining the OEM’s imagePress Lite C165 printer as a series, these solutions are designed to help streamline efficiency and sustainability (while utilizing security features) to create high quality output to support an organization’s internal printing needs. Delivering streamlined workflows for both office environments and print centres (while incorporating many imagePress technologies to help users achieve enhanced print quality on a broad range of media), the imagePress Lite C170 “is designed to help meet today’s essential industry and business demands,” said the company. Canon leveraged its expertise in colour imaging into the imagePress Lite C170 printer through technologies such as the R-VCSEL Imaging Laser, Multi D.A.T., and Translucent CV Toner. Paramount in the imagePress C910 and C10010VP series, these technologies help users produce vibrant images with minimal effort. Canon also implemented environmentally conscious features into this device as proven by its Energy-Star certification, as well as EPEAT Gold and low Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) ratings.

The imagePress Lite C170 (and imagePress Lite C165 models) are designed with many of the same elements as the imageRunner Advance DX Office MFP line of products – including built-in features to help streamline efficiency for in-house copy, print and scan operations in environments such as real estate offices, legal departments, faith-based groups and non-profit organizations. All models in the imageRunner Advance DX and imagePress Lite families utilize a common source code for firmware development. This Unified Firmware Platform (UFP) allows for version upgrades to existing models in the same generation. UFP also allows for an increased value proposition of the device over time with feature improvements, as well as better consistency across models. Due to their MEAP (Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform) compatibility, the imagePress Lite C170 Series can integrate with many Canon and third-party solutions, including the award-winning uniFlow Online cloud-output management solution. The new light-production printer can print on stocks up to 350 gsm an on long sheets up to 51.2” with optional accessories, at up to 70 letter pages per minute (ppm) in colour, and 80 letter ppm in black and white.
