MELVILLE, N.Y., August 30th, 2021 – Aligning with the company’s commitment to delivering high-quality solutions built to support today’s work environments, Canon U.S.A., Inc. – Latin America Division, a leader in digital imaging solutions, is excited to introduce the availability of the new imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX C478iF Series.

The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX C478iF/C478iFZ models are capable of printing up to 50 pages per minute (ppm) in the imageRUNNER ADVANCE lineup.

Through a combination of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX C478iF Series’ intuitive ease of use, advanced scanning functionalities, easy-to-implement cloud-ready capabilities1, and a foundation of strong security features2, these compact models can help enable and support customers in their digital transformation initiatives – whether employees are working from the corporate office, home office, or a combination of both.

These new models also support the Canon PRINT Business app, allowing users to perform many functions simply and conveniently from their compatible smartphone or tablet. This includes support for the app’s remote operation feature, which allows the user to control the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX user interface from their smartphone or tablet without having to touch the control panel.
