One of the many advantages of digital copiers is their ability to be connected to a network and serve as an office printer, scanner or fax machine. The Canon IR4570 is a 45-page-per-minute digital multifunctional copier capable of being connected to a network. Once connected, the IR 4570 produces prints at full engine speed and affords users advanced printing options, such as double-sided printing, stapling and collating.
