Copier / Device Integration

  • Canon Gen3+ (MEAP) (version 1.0.0)*:
    • PaperCut MF now provides a new solution for supported Canon MEAP 3rd generation devices. This solution offers job tracking, secure print release, Integrated Scanning, the ability to allocate accounts, and change print jobs settings at the device. This is now the primary Canon embedded solution.
      Note: Existing Canon (MEAP) PaperCut licenses cannot be used for this new solution. A new MEAP licence from Canon will be required. MAC-6211
  • Canon (MEAP) (version 1.7.1)*:
