Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging
Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. "These additions to the imagePROGRAF line

paper weights and types. We expect a variety of organizations, such as
architectural firms and educational institutions to benefit from the new
features and advance the way they operate as a result."
Intelligent, Cloud-Enabled Workflow
The imagePROGRAF iPF MFP M40 family of devices includes the latest
version of SmartWorks MFP Software, helping to simplify the entire
scan-to-print, file and cloud process for users of all experience
levels. The new devices help users gain more control over their
workflow, providing users with access to more editing functions than the
prior models, such as invert, mirror, and black and white point
adjustments and customizable default scanner and printer settings. The
new iPF MFP devices also include Canon's Direct Print & Share, a
cloud-based software solution that enables the viewing, sharing and
printing of files from almost anywhere in the world, with 5GB of free

The printers include a number of other software applications that
empower application versatility including:
PosterArtist Lite poster creation software that helps users at any
skill level to create professional posters
Accounting Manager feature which collects printer job information such
as media consumption, media type and output size, allowing users to
obtain printing costs to track in-house usage or for sharing with
Print Plug-in for Microsoft (News - Alert) Office helps users of any skill level to
create large-format printouts of documents, images or illustrations
that were created by Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint programs.

The M40 scanner comes equipped with a SingleSensor assembly technology
that helps produce seamless images without gaps or breaks. The new
technology incorporated into the scanner helps provide consistent and
more accurate color, as well as greater detail in the shadows and
highlights. Full width image capture, as opposed to time-delayed
scanning of separate sections, means less risk of misalignment of scan
data as well.
