The imageRUNNER 2545i is ready to handle your office prints with UFR II LT, PCL5e/6 and PS (emulated) printing and 10/100 Base-Tx Ethernet connectivity.

Standard duplexing capability provides users with the ability to copy/print their documents on either one or two sides of paper, saving paper, toner, and energy.

Documents up to 11"" x 17"" can be scanned in color or black and white at resolutions up to 600 x 600 dpi. These files then can be imported into TWAIN-compliant applications on the desktop through Canon's Color Network ScanGear software.

In addition to Color Scanning, the imageRUNNER 2545i includes Color Send technology standard, giving users the ability to send their scanned documents directly to various destinations such as e-mail addresses, USB memory media, or even a particular folder on their network or computer. Includes support for PDF High Compression technology for efficient handling of color image data, and Searchable PDF technology to add OCR data to your scanned documents to make the most of documents.

LDAP address book support allows for browsing the corporate address book for easier scan-and-send operations, while also reducing address book maintenance.

The imageRUNNER 2545i gives IT managers control and helps drive cost out of operations with a variety of tools including the standard Remote User Interface, support for Canon's imageWARE Enterprise Management Console application, and Canon's Generic PCL6 driver to simplify driver deployment.

Designed with Canon's RAPID Fusing System to deliver exceptional image quality with less heat and energy to operate, while also allowing fast warm-up times.

On-the-fly toner replenishment keeps your office productive, so print and copy jobs keep running while the toner is replaced.

ID Card Copy mode provides a simple way to copy both sides of an ID card onto a single page.

An optional Super G3 fax board delivers the ability to transmit faxes at impressive speeds, without the need for a separate fax machine.
