The imageRUNNER LBP desktop printers are equipped with standard duplexing to save paper costs, and employ Canon's RAPID fusing technologyÃƒÂ¢ the needs of users are basic or more demanding, the imageRUNNER LBP Series offers a scalable solution to all environments.
Superb Image Quality
The imageRUNNER LBP Series produces output of unparalleled quality, regardless of the document. Users can print remarkably sharp and impactful presentations, architectural renderings, engineering diagrams or general office documents at high speed. The Color imageRUNNER LBP5970 utilizes an innovative compact 4-in-1 laser beam unit that reaches true 1200 dpi output* in super fine mode for enhanced image clarity and gradients, or fine mode for precise output at 600 dpi.
Consistent imageRUNNER Print Driver Architecture
The imageRUNNER LBP Series utilizes the same consistent printer driver that Canon developed for the imageRUNNER line. By standardizing the driver interface across the entire imageRUNNER series - from desktop to production devices - users need to only familiarize themselves with one universal set of print functions. Each intuitive tab in the printer driver provides graphical icons representing the device, as well as the page layout of the particular print job being submitted. Additionally, the Dynamic Configuration function of the printer driver always displays accurate information on the device's configuration options and installed paper to eliminate errors. The imageRUNNER printer driver is compatible with both Windows and Macintosh environments.
Powerful UFR II Print Controller
The Canon UFR II Print Controller is included in all three models in the Canon imageRUNNER LBP Series. This proprietary architecture has been consistently proven to deliver faster output than PCL or PS page description languages for complex documents that include images, graphics and text. The UFR II Controller achieves high-performance printing by automatically distributing data processing between the print driver on the user's desktop computer and the imageRUNNER LBP device. The intelligent architecture automatically determines the optimal balance of processing by analyzing the layout and graphic components of each page. This unique approach maintains exceptionally high print performance on office documents and PDF files. The print controller provides support for UFR II, PCL 5c (Color imageRUNNER LBP5975, LBP5970, LBP5960 and LBP5360), and PCL 5e/6 (imageRUNNER LBP3460).
RAPID Fusing System first print-out time, while requiring less heat and energy consumption.
Next Generation Toners
The Color imageRUNNER LBP5970 uses the new QF (Quick Fixing) Color Toner. This new oil-less toner has special properties that enable it to melt fast at low temperature and pressure to maintain fast output with Color RAPID Fusing SystemÃƒÂ¢anced Paper Handling:
The Canon imageRUNNER LBP Series features a standard auto-duplexing function that can save paper costs by printing double-sided documents with nonstop productivity. Using a trayless duplexing design, the imageRUNNER LBP Series assures high reliability of paper feeding in a very compact size. In addition, each model offers options that provide extra paper capacity for even longer continuous operation. Up to three optional 550-sheet cassettes can be installed on the Color imageRUNNER LBP5970.
The Canon imageRUNNER LBP Series has been designed to optimize productivity through the minimization of downtime. This is achieved through the front-load access to all customer replaceable components. When replacements are required, each toner cartridge and image drum can be replaced individually to improve operating cost effectiveness.
