Designed for commercial, franchise, in-plant and transactional printers, the imagePRESS C850 is equipped to handle a variety of media options, including heavier, coated or textured stock, at an outstanding level of reliability and performance.
Providing fast turnaround, the imagePRESS C850 has print speeds of up to 85 letter-size images per minute, duplex, long-sheet printing for paper up to 30 inches. It also features new in-line finishing options like multifunction die punching, creasing and booklet trimming, as well as the new PRISMAsync Color Print Server for more flexibility in color correcting and superior print quality.
"We're so pleased to hear that the imagePRESS and its built-in PRISMAsync workflow solution are working out so well for SFX," said Peter Kowalczuk, President, Canon Solutions America.
