The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C9000S series of Canon short-run color digital presses is different because it has an integrated Océ PRISMAsync controller. The partnership between the two companies began when Canon acquired Océ in November 2009. In March 2011, the appearance of the "S" versions of the imagePress C6010 and C7010 digital presses featuring an integrated Océ PRISMAsync controllershowed that the partnership was a solid one.
The VarioPrint DirectPresses came about through joint development work by Canon and Océ on the equipment components. These monochrome presses, available in four different versions running between 95 and 135 pages per minute, are built on the new DirectPress technology. This is characterised by a drum composed of conducting surface tracks which can create a voltage pattern without the use of a light source. Apart from the print engine, the external paper source modules are Océ technology, while the scanner and the finishing modules are from Canon.
