About BrightQ™ Pro

BrightQ™ Pro is the official Linux and UNIX solution for Canon imageRUNNER MFP devices, including support for the advanced features of imageRUNNER printers.

BrightQ™ Pro provides native PostScript device drivers for the Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX and FreeBSD operating systems. Installation is a breeze with our easy to use graphical software installer and printer configuration tool.
