Canon announced three imageCLASS D1300 Series laser multifunction digital copiers for SMB workgroups. The imageCLASS D1370, D1350 and D1320 models provide convenient copy, print, scan and fax (excluding the D1320) functionality in a fully networkable device. Ideal for multi-user environments, the copiers feature a variety of technologies found in many high-end commercial copiers to maximize office efficiency, including “Department ID Management” control, which allows network administrators to monitor and control device usage, and a 50-sheet Duplex Automatic Document Feeder that provides two-sided copying, printing, scanning and faxing to help reduce paper costs and increase productivity. Expandable up to 1,050 sheets of paper in a variety of sizes, the D1300 series copiers deliver quick copy and print speeds of up to 35 pages per minute (ppm), simplex and 17 ppm, duplex. All three models deliver a first print time of six seconds or less.
The D1320 is a step up from its predecessor, the D1120. For users that are on the go, this device offers the ability to scan PDFs and image files to a USB flash drive or even to “direct print” images from the same pocket device.
A step up from the D1320, you have the ability to send and receive faxes with the D1350. This model uses a built-in 33.6 Kbps Super G3 fax modem. This machine includes fax features such as 19 one-touch speed dial numbers, 181 coded speed dial numbers, memory capacity of up to 512 sheets, and duplex faxing.
The next step up is the D1370 which adds Canon’s Send Lite feature that allows you to scan digital document information and send it to e-mail addresses and network folders as compressed PDF files for additional office efficiency. It also adds the secure print feature which can be an excellent solution for professionals in the medical field as well as law firms. It asks a user to simply enter a unique PIN code during printing to ensure confidential document handling. Canon D1370 also supports PCL 5e/XL 3.0 and PostScript 3 Emulation languages in addition to Canon’s host-based UFR II LT language to provide printing versatility
