Enhanced document storage

To streamline document storage, the enhanced Mail Box feature allows each Mail Box to be personalised with a user name, password and document deletion period. Another improvement is the Copy & Store and Store & Print features that streamline workflows by enabling the user to simultaneously copy and store and store and print a document in
one scanning operation. With optional Universal Send installed, documents can be retrieved and distributed in file formats such as TIFF and PDF.

Maximise the power of the web

Support for the Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) protocol facilitates employee collaboration over the Internet. Users can communicate from remote locations by scanning and securely sending documents from an iR5055 or iR5065 device to a shared storage service1. Canon’s Web Access Software option2 allows documents on internet or intranet sites to be viewed directly from the device’s full-colour touchpanel display, and then printed with the desired setting.

Professional printing with confidence

The optional UFR II/PCL Printer Kit offers support for PCL 5e and PCL6 emulations, and includes Canon’s UFR II (Ultra Fast Rendering) print driver language for efficient processing between printer and driver. Users who prefer Postscript workflows can use the Postscript 3 driver.

Streamline your production workflow

Environments with higher bandwidth needs can add an imagePASS S23network print controller to their imageRUNNER configuration. With a 2.8GHz Intel Celeron processor, 80GB hard drive and 256MB of DDR SDRAM, this powerful tool makes light work of printing even the most complex pieces. It also gives users access to advanced options such as Hot Folders and Virtual Printers, and EFI Impose software to manage complex workflows with automated queuing.

Easy to monitor, manage and protect

Device administration can be a time consuming and costly activity, but with the powerful, yet easyto-use management tools available for the iR5055 and iR5065, managing your imageRUNNER device is a breeze. Whether you are running a large imageRUNNER fleet spread over multiple locations or managing a single device in a small office, these tools will make device management easy and efficient so you can focus on more important tasks.

Security is another major concern, especially for organisations that deal with sensitive information. With the iR5055 and iR5065, you can choose from a variety of document, device and data security features to help maintain security and meet your organisation’s compliance obligations. Your business can rest assured knowing only authorised personnel will have access to your imageRUNNER device and the data stored inside it.

Centralised device management

Canon’s imageWARE Management Console is a Web-based utility that facilitates centralised management of networked devices. Versatile and scalable, imageWARE Management Console enables remote management of imageRUNNER device settings, discovery of new devices using automated tasks, and device error notification via e-mail.

With the Device Information Delivery function you can specify which users have access to the device and its functions, replicate device settings and copy Address Books to multiple devices for easy management of devices across the network.

For even greater control, the preinstalled Remote UI utility provides the ability to track the progress of jobs in queues, monitor paper and supply levels, access Mail Boxes and edit Address Books.

Embedded remote monitoring software

Canon’s optional eMaintenance service is a remote device management solution designed to optimise the productivity of your imageRUNNER device and help save your business time and money. Using Remote Diagnostic System (RDS) software embedded in the iR5055 and iR5065 devices, eMaintenance allows a dedicated Canon server to collect automatic device meter readings and monitor maintenance requirements and device performance remotely.

Robust device security

Secured Print: Use this feature to set a password for highly sensitive or confidential files to ensure the job does not start printing until a password is entered at the device.

Department ID Management: By registering a Department ID and password for each department, this feature allows you to control costs by setting volume limits on copy, scan, and print jobs for up to 1,000 departments.

Single Sign On: This feature helps you control access to imageRUNNER functions by prompting users for the same username and password they use to access other network devices like their PC.

Advanced document and data security

Secure Watermark: This optional feature embeds text and background patterns on printed documents. These become visible if the page is reproduced, deterring users from copying sensitive information. 

DD Encryption Kit: This optional kit is Common Criteria certified and applies a powerful 128-bit data encryption algorithm to the data as it is written to the internal hard drive.

HDD Erase Kit: This optional kit uses three levels of disk overwriting to permanently remove data from the hard disk once printed, making it impossible to recover this data after completion of the print job.

Fast, secure and inexpensive Universal Send

Canon Universal Send is an optional feature that provides a fast, secure and inexpensive way to distribute documents in electronic form direct from an imageRUNNER’s touch-screen display.

This unique technology enables you to scan, save and send documents in common electronic formats including PDF and TIFF automatically. In one step you can scan a document and:

  • Email it to an individual or group
  • Save it on your network
  • Store it in an imageRUNNER mailbox
  • Send it as an iFAX over the internet
  • Send it to a folder on your desktop

Device Signature PDF

When you create a PDF with Universal Send, this optional feature embeds a digital signature within the PDF that allows the user to verify the originatingdevice.

User Signature PDF

Another Universal send option, this feature allows users to embed their own digital signature in a scanned PDF so that recipients can verify the source and easily determine if the document has been tampered with.

Find information fast

The Searchable PDF option makes it easy to find information later using Adobe Acrobat. Select searchable PDF to save a document as full-text searchable automatically.

Share information securely

Password protect documents before sending with the optional PDF-encryption feature, preventing unauthorised printing or editing. Tag and track documents with the Send ID feature.

Handy built-in mailboxes

imageRUNNER mailboxes are a convenient place to store things like frequently used forms for printing on demand. Set up to 100 mailboxes and store 6,000 pages of information.

Advanced mailbox features

Use the advanced features to edit and merge documents on the device before sending or printing. Use URL Send to reduce network congestion by sending a URL link rather than the document itself.

Technology that adapts to the way you work

MEAP or Multifunctional Embedded Application Platform is a unique software platform that enables applications to be installed and run on an imageRUNNER.

This breakthrough Java-based open-platform technology makes business more efficient by transforming the behaviour of an imageRUNNER to suit your organisation’s processes.

Put simply, MEAP is like an operating system for imageRUNNER devices. With it both customised and off-the-shelf MEAP applications can be installed on a device and accessed from its touch-screen display or built-in web browser.

Customise functions

With MEAP, you can customise the functions of an imageRUNNER and add-on devices like proximity card readers. As an example, you can use it to customise a device to deal with different documents in different ways automatically.

Automate processes

Depending on the application, MEAP can simplify complex document processing chores, automate tasks like document management and facilitate advanced functionality.
The potential for adaptation is virtually limitless.

Ready-made or custom applications

The versatility of the MEAP platform enables you or your choice of developer to create custom software applications specifically for your organisation. Alternatively, choose from a growing range of packaged MEAP applications from Canon. These include:

Secure Print for MEAP. This unique application protects sensitive information and reduces waste by requiring staff members to swipe their building access cards at an imageRUNNER to release their print jobs.

Secure Login for MEAP. With this application you can control access to the copy, scan, email and fax functions of an imageRUNNER. Detailed information about device usage is stored in a log for direct upload to a cost accounting system.

Secure Fax for MEAP. This application uses existing building access cards to control access to the fax function of an imageRUNNER. Connecting directly to your existing fax server, it also saves money as no fax card is required to send faxes from the device.

Canon Document Solutions software

Teamed with an imageRUNNER, these software applications simplify the way your organisation stores, accesses and distributes documents.

Each of Canon’s seven software categories includes a selection of applications to meet the requirements of any organisation. Most can be implemented straight from the box or customised to suit.
