The very light-volume production segment represents a substantial business opportunity. It is the second largest market segment in terms of annual unit sales, only surpassed by the office segment (which is the main target market for Canon’s imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices). With the addition of the imagePRESS C650 to Canon’s product portfolio you now have a dedicated, competitive offering to tap into this vast business potential. Its sweet spot is light volume production with a color print volume ratio above 55%.
From enterprises combining office type printing and the production of previously outsourced high quality marketing collateral to franchises where space and budget are top concerns, the imagePRESS C650 positions you to offer a production grade engine at a budget friendly investment to a whole new market of prospects.
The imagePRESS C650 will ship standard with the imagePRESS Printer Kit, which offers the ease of use required in demanding business operations. Its processor is powered with Canon’s MEAP® platform, which offers advanced scanning applications, cost recovery, document distribution, and much more. For those environments that require additional processing power and color management tools, the imagePRESS Server G100 (powered by EFI Fiery Technology) is available as an option.About Canon U.S.A., Inc.:
