Detailed Features

Canon’s innovative iR C3220N offers an altogether better way of working in colour. As a multi functional network device, it enables you to print and communicate across your network while controlling workflow and colour printing budget.

Be cost effective in colour

The iR C3220N offers Canon’s brilliant colour technology with built-in cost control intelligence. Use Department ID Management to decide who uses colour and how often; utilise Canon Document Accounting Software to manage your colour budget centrally; produce all your documents by investing in a single machine that gives you workgroup-wide colour consistency.

Look better and work faster

The embedded print controller ensures brilliant colour quality and Canon’s unique S-toner gives prints a superb offset-like matt finish which is easy to mark in pen for editing and amending. Ultra fast print language and processing enables you to output at a ‘best in class’ 32 A4 colour prints per minute. You can click to scan, copy, send and print without moving to different devices.

Connect all the advantages of colour networking

As well as printing, you can send and share colour files across your network. Just scan in documents and send them to email addresses, databases, or even the company server and in any format you choose e.g. PDF, TIFF, MTIFF, JPEG.

Be perfectly in control

For IT Managers, the iR C3220N is configured to adapt to all network topologies seamlessly and Canon Network Utility Software enables simple setting up, management and control of your Canon network devices. For users, the intuitive User Interface reduces complex functions to simple steps.

Finish and collate documents automatically

With the iR C3220N you can choose from a range of built-in finishing options including saddle stitching and booklet-making. Print in any media up to 253gsm from postcard size to A3 and use Canon’s innovative iW Publishing Manager software to create and merge documents from different software applications with no time wasting manual collation.

Secure now and safe for the future

Use the advanced security features of the iR C3220N to protect confidential information and restrict usage of the device. And to make it a safe investment for the future, Canon has built-in a Java platform called MEAP, which enables potential future applications of the iR C3220N customised to your business.
