New Products Offer Speed, Convenience and Reliability in a Compact Design..
Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announced two new laser multifunction devices – the imageCLASS MF4450 Black & White Laser Multifunction Printer and the imageCLASS D550 Black & White Laser Multifunction Copier – providing small or home office users easy-to-use, high-performance, black-and-white multi-function devices with advanced features necessary to tackle the daily, document output needs of businesses.
Canon’s imageCLASS MF4450 and imageCLASS D550 are compact, user-friendly products with an easy to navigate five-line LCD, offering a convenient solution for any home or small office. An added advantage is the Push/Pull Scanning feature providing businesses with the flexibility of initiating a scan from a PC or directly from the device, increasing convenience and saving time. Additionally, these products require minimal maintenance and incorporate the Canon Single Cartridge System, which combines the toner and drum in one easy-to-replace unit, resulting in excellent image quality retention and eliminating the complication and warehousing of separate toner and drum consumables.
“We are refreshing our laser multifunction portfolio for small and home offices looking to leverage big-office technology in a single device,” said Jim Rosetta, vice president and general manager, Imaging Systems Group, Canon U.S.A. “With the introduction of these multifunction models, Canon continues to demonstrate our commitment to provide a more streamlined, cost-effective business solution without the complexities of multiple devices.”

The imageCLASS MF4450 is equipped with a 250-sheet front-loading paper cassette that blends seamlessly into the unit, while the 35-sheet automatic document feeder works for both copying as well as scanning. Combining the high optical color scanning resolution of 600 x 600 dpi with a 24-bit depth produces exceptional quality for the end-user.
Canon’s imageCLASS D550 Laser Multifunction Copier possesses speeds of up to 26 ppmI at a fast first print time of six seconds*.
