Complex Made Simple

EMEA print service providers show significant demand for new Canon imagePRESS C800 Series

Canon EMEA has experienced a remarkably high level of demand for its new colour production cutsheet imagePRESS C800 Series since its launch at the ‘Canon For Business 2014’ event in Germany in May this year. Orders in Europe, the Middle East and Africa for the imagePRESS C800 have exceeded 900 units in a variety of configurations, with interest coming from print service providers (PSPs) and in-house print departments throughout EMEA.

Positioned between the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9000 Series and the imagePRESS C6011(S) in Canon’s colour digital press portfolio, the imagePRESS C800 Series produces high quality output at a market-leading level of productivity.

“This high level of interest and the significant number of orders we have already received for our new C800 series demonstrates that customers recognise the possibilities of such a versatile, productive and high quality device for their business,” commented Hendrik Verbrugghe, Marketing Director, Canon Middle East.

Feedback from participants in Canon’s lead customer programme has highlighted the quality of colour reproduction, flexibility and the high levels of productivity achievable as some of the key benefits contributing to the popularity of the new C800 series.

Since introducing the imagePRESS C800 Series to his department and using it for a host of applications, Mr Dörfel has been able to decommission two smaller printers, which has further reduced costs and increased efficiencies.

Comprising two models – the 70ppm imagePRESS C700 and the 80ppm imagePRESS C800 – the new imagePRESS C800 Series incorporates cutting-edge technology combined with new and enhanced proven technology from the flagship Canon imagePRESS C7011VP(S). This has enabled the C800 Series to deliver advanced levels of print quality, productivity and versatility in both commercial and in-house print environments.
