Canon imageRUNNER 2530 MFP Wins BERTL 2011 Award - Best Monochrome Multifunction Printer/Photocopier

Canon Copiers have just heard the news of Canon's incredible haul at this year's spring BERTL Awards. And it's great news for the Canon imageRUNNER 2530, the monochrome photocopier which has already proved an enormous hit with many small/medium-sized businesses and office workgroups in the UK.


BERTL is the world-renowned Business Equipment Research and Testing Laboratories which provides product evaluations and comparisons on a wide range of imaging devices, including all the leading photocopiers and document management solutions. BERTL's assessments are based on the end-user's experience and the company prides itself on being able to test all major manufacturers devices. BERTL's analyses are published in its evaluation reports, vertical market research, comparisons data and on the news section of its website, available to all subscribers.

The BERTL Awards

To reinvigorate its focus on the needs of end-users, BERTL has moved away from its historical performance criteria - speed and feed productivity, simulated reliability tests and theoretical SRP pricing lists and broadened its range of considerations to take better account of the end-user and typical business dynamics. Workflow requirements, security considerations, document production needs and user group management are all factors which affect the functionality of a device in any given environment.

So the BERTL Award categories are now based more around device performance, within the real-world environments where they'll be deployed: desktop, workgroup, departmental and production.

The BERTL Award for the imageRUNNER 2530 MFP/Photocopier

In this year's selection, the imageRUNNER 2530 photocopier saw-off the competition to receive one of the most highly-prized accolades of all - the Award for Best Departmental Monochrome A3 MFP/photocopier.

Among the features that stood out for the judges, was the IR 2530's versatile media handling and flexibility, with its ability to print on media up to 34lb (126gsm) and paper sizes of up to 11" by 17".

The powerful Canon Custom Processor built on the imageCHIP LITE platform with 512 MB of memory increases the iR 2530's multifunctional capabilities.

Another feature which stood out was the iR 2530's ability to scan in full colour on monochrome and share documents instantly with Scan-to-email,scan-to-FTP,Scan-to-SMD,i-Fax and optional Super G3 Fax.

But it was the sheer range of features which really set the imageRUNNER 2530 photocopier/MFP apart from rival devices. BERTL judges really rated the Department ID Management,IPv6,SNMPv1,Mac/IP Address filtering,SMTP Authentication and POP Authetication before SMTP.

Also highlighted was the imageRUNNER 2530's security options, where Canon's uniFLOW Output Manager solution can be used.

Canon Copiers was truly delighted to hear the news of the iR 2530's success at the 2011 BERTL Awards. It has since emerged that a number of other Canon devices, including the imageRUNNER Advance C5051 and the imageRUNNER C1030 have also been honoured at the BERTL Awards, highlighting, if any confirmation were needed, that Canon is truly leading the way with photocopiers technology.

All Canon imageRUNNER and imageRUNNER Advance photocopiers are available to purchase or photocopier leasing at Canon Copiers.
