The Series 4000 multifunction devices don't get more impressive than this discreet yet outstanding A3/A4 model. Its ability to dish out 51 pages per minute, while holding as many as 4,980 sheets at a time, make it the perfect choice for the ambitious workgroup. That 1200x1200dpi mono printing is of the highest quality, and the modular design means you can expand the device's functionality as you take in more work. The 4051i can juggle complex files with ease, while uniFLOW and MEAP allow you to take control of the printer's costs and expand its uses.

Fast and Large
The iR 4051i exceeds the 51 pages per minute mark, making it one of the fastest printers on the market. On the off-chance that the speed isn't sufficiently impressive, the large-format A3 prints will be likely to make up for it, and this device can pump out even the bigger size at a decent speed of 25 pages per minute. But that's very far from all there is to this masterwork from Canon. The modular design allows you to bolt on features when you're ready for them. Adding the optional colour image reader turns this into the most multi-talented of multifunction devices, complete with cutting-edge scan, copy and (as an option) fax facilities. And workgroups used to the tribulations of sending files to colleagues will love the ability to send files through email. The MFD effortlessly juggles numerous flexible file formats, and this ensures the file that lands on your desk will work - no matter how many thousands of miles it's had to travel.

Creamy Output
A high-flier like the Advance 4051i needs top-quality to satisfy the even higher ambitions of its users, and this is delivered impeccably in the creamy 1200x1200dpi output. You won't have to go elsewhere for that professional finish, either, as this MFD can be armed with a strong line-up of optional internal and external finishing tools that can staple, punch holes, and go the extra mile to create crisp booklets and brochures. And the excellent paper handling capabilities keep the pages coming. The Canon can stock 1,180 sheets as standard, but this already impressive number can be expanded to 4,980 with the help of additional cassettes and a vast 2,700-sheet side paper deck.

Tight Security
Canon wants you to use the iR Advance's features as often as you dare, and it wants you to be safe the whole time. So anyone looking to extract confidential data from this device will have to get past some of the toughest safety measures devised yet. These range from the watermarking of documents and the encryption and safe deletion of print jobs, to the choice of identification techniques - backed up by the Trusted Platform module, which encrypts login data. You can even add the HDD Data Encryption & Mirroring Kit for extra protection.

MFD Heal Thyself
Naturally, the 4051i has super-fast Gigabit ethernet support, while the numerous supported Page Description Languages include UFRII and PCL5e/6, with Adobe PS 3 available as an option. It also hosts the programmable MEAP, a fantastic way of coding new functions and facilities into the device that'll allow you to take the short-cut to success. You can also rely on the device to look after itself, letting Canon remotely monitor the health of your MFD through e-Maintenance, or using uniFLOW to build up an idea of whether people are making the best use of your fleet of printers - and restricting those who should be using less colour toner, for instance, or who should be making more frequent use of the double-sided printing. User friendly interface systems aren’t easy to craft, but Canon’s 8.4in tiltable touch screen makes the process seem very straightforward, allowing you to mine the full potential of the vast features set.

Stunning mono text and image quality mixed with a fine range of finishing tools. Throw in the sizeable paper handling, and this heavyweight model can transform ambitious workgroups.
