Canon U.S.A., Inc., Introduces New imagePRESS Lite C170 Shade Multifunction Printer

The company leverages its expertise in color imaging through technologies such as the R-VCSEL imaging laser, Multi DAT and translucent CV toner in the imagePRESS Lite C170 printer. These technologies are paramount in the imagePRESS C910 and C10010VP series and can help users create vivid images with minimal effort. Because of the company’s commitment to sustainability, Canon has implemented environmentally conscious features in this product, as evidenced by ENERGY STAR® certification, EPEAT Gold and low TEC (Typical Electricity Consumption) ratings.

The imagePRESS Lite C170 and imagePRESS Lite C165 models are built with many of the same platform elements as the MFP family (imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX), including features that optimize the efficiency of internal copying, printing and scanning activities in many environments such as real estate offices , Legal departments, religious groups, and nonprofits. All models in the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX and imagePRESS Lite families use a common source code for firmware development. This Unified Firmware Platform (UFP) enables version upgrades to existing models of the same generation. UFP enables a higher value proposition for the device over time, with feature improvements and cross-model consistency. Due to its MEAP (Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform) compatibility, the imagePRESS Lite C170 series can be integrated with many Canon and third party solutions, including the award-winning uniFLOW online cloud output management solution.

This new lightweight production printer gives users the ability to work with a wider range of media to bring printing to life. It is equipped as standard for printing on materials with a size of up to 350 g / m² and offers the possibility of printing on long sheets of up to 51.2 inches with optional accessories. The imagePRESS Lite C170 is designed to make it easier for users to meet fast turnaround times and deadlines. It is equipped with fast print speeds and enables users to print up to 70 letter pages per minute (ppm) in color and 80 letter pages per minute in black and white.

“We have had tremendous success with the imagePRESS Lite C165 because our customers appreciate the print quality and efficiency of this solution,” he said Patrick Flesch, President of the Gordon Flesch Company. “As one of the largest Canon distributors, the Gordon Flesch Company is excited to add the imagePRESS Lite C170 to its portfolio and to offer customers a product that is specifically designed to meet their business needs through a range of high quality features.” ”

The imagePRESS Lite C170 series can also be connected to the new Canon imagePRESS Server M10 V2 and L30 V2 controllers, equipped with EFI Fiery® technology, to provide tools that help users improve performance, the hallmark of the Company and be able to produce complex documents of high quality.

Like the imageRUNNER ADVANCE DX models, the imagePRESS Lite C170 Series offers security features that enable users to protect confidential information1 and support regulatory compliance2 in high-end office and lighting production environments. Once activated, the McAfee Embedded Control feature blocks the execution of unauthorized applications through intelligent whitelisting3.

“At Canon, we are committed to providing solutions that are equipped for a wide variety of applications to help our customers meet their daily business and customer needs,” said Shinichi Yoshida, Canon’s executive vice president and general manager USA, Inc. “Designed with efficiency, ease of use, quality and control in mind, the imagePRESS Lite C170 Color Multifunction Printer is an excellent solution to help users improve their internal creativity and printing capabilities.”
