Niagara is a result of customers, industry experts and Canon development teams working together to shape development priorities and various aspects of product concepts and processes. IWCO Direct, one of the largest providers of direct marketing solutions in the United States and a Canon client, was one such participant in the Niagara Project.“I expect Niagara to help inkjet expand into new segments because it will offer a practical sheetfed solution that produces high-quality results on the same media we use in our offset work,” said Dave Johannes, vice president of digital print and mailing operations at IWCO Direct. “Besides offering the potential to help reduce our overall operating costs, what really excites me about Niagara is that we will be able to leverage many existing in-line finishing options.” PRINT 13 Preview Canon will preview Niagara as a technology showcase at PRINT 13 (Booth #502), being held in Chicago’s McCormick Place, September 8-12. The first Niagara-based digital presses are expected to be launched by Canon in the first half of 2014. About Canon U.S.A., Inc.
