    UFR II Technology and Multiple Printer Languages for Fast and Efficient Printing

    The printers incorporate Canon’s proprietary Ultra Fast Rendering Technology (UFR II) for efficient printing by offloading some of the data processing tasks, such as the processing of images and half-tone graphics to the computer, taking full advantage of the computer’s constantly evolving processing speed and operating system performance. The processed data will then be highly compressed, resulting in a much smaller graphical file that dramatically reduces the printer’s processing time. Coupled with up to 1GB built-in memory, the printers can handle highly complex prints in a short time without the need for expensive memory upgrades. In addition, the printer comes with PCL and Post Script[5] printer languages to support printing of a wider range of documents.

     

    Auto-removal of Toner Cartridge Seal Design for Easy Maintenance

    With the auto-removal of toner seal, users just need to “plug & play”. When the toner installed to the printer, the seal will be removed automatically. It greatly simplify the toner cartridge replacement. The printer utilizes an integrated 2-in-1 Toner Cartridge which combines drum and toner cartridge in one easy-to-replace unit. This significantly saves the environment by reducing the number of consumables to make maintenance easier, save time and lower long-term operating costs.

     

    Convenient and Comprehensive Services that Meet Your Needs

    The printers include a Toner Status feature to remind users of the remaining toner so that a replacement can be made in due course.
