Color imageRUNNER LBP5970 model is a full-color desktop laser beam printer
that allow users to output up to tabloid size color and black-and-white
documents for their workgroup needs.
The imageRUNNER LBP desktop printers are equipped with standard duplexing
to save paper costs, and employ Canon's RAPID fusing technology - to reduce
energy consumption and eliminate long warm-up times. The imageRUNNER LBP
devices are network-ready, and support Canon UFR II technology for improved
printing productivity while maintaining consistent imageRUNNER print driver
operability. Furthermore, each model incorporates familiar utilities like
Remote User Interface (RUI) and imageWARE Enterprise Management Console,
while including several security advancements to protect confidentiality.
The Color imageRUNNER LBP5970 model operates at up to 31 pages per minute
(letter) in monochrome and up to 30 ppm (letter) in brilliant color.
Powerful Processing Engine:
The Canon imageRUNNER LBP Series is powered by a system architecture that
is similar to the current imageRUNNER line, and provides unparalleled
speed, power and functionality. Fast processing of large and complex documents
is further enhanced through expandable onboard memory. Whether 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 LBP5960 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
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 LBP5960 and LBP5360),
and PCL 5e/6 (imageRUNNER LBP3460).
RAPID Fusing System:
The long wait for printed output is over since the Canon imageRUNNER Series
requires no warm-up time from standby mode to produce documents fast.
The power of the RAPID Fusing System is inside each model, which
uses a special fixing film and ceramic heater unlike traditional roller-fixing
devices. RAPID Fusing System provides exceptional image quality
with zero warm-up time and reduces first print-out time, while requiring
less heat and energy consumption.
Next Generation Toners:
The Color imageRUNNER LBP5960 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 System.
4-In-1 Laser Scanner:
The Color imageRUNNER LBP5960 requires less valuable desktop space, yet
is able to produce larger format double-sided color documents with ease.
The new 4-in-1 laser scanner in the Color imageRUNNER LBP5960 uses four
individual lasers aimed at one polygon mirror from different angles to
expose each beam to the drum. This remarkable design is responsible for
the compact size of the device because it does not need a separate laser
scanner for each image drum.
Short Vertical Paper Path:
The Color imageRUNNER LBP5960 features a remarkably short vertical paper
path, resulting in short first print-out times of 7.5 seconds (monochrome)
and 9.0 seconds (color). The short path also contributes to the extremely
compact size of the device.
All models in the Canon imageRUNNER LBP Series are remarkably compact
and feature front-load access to consumables such as drum, toner, fuser
and paper supply. This enables the devices to be conveniently placed either
on top of or below a desk, in a corner, or in previously unusable space.
Advanced 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 LBP5960.
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.
