Canon Releases New PortAble and All-In-One Printers
Manila, Philippines — Canon Marketing Inc. launches three new PIXMA printers – the PIXMA iP100, PIXMA MX7600 and PIXMA MX850. The PIXMA iP100 is the perfect tote-worthy companion for the globetrotting executive, with its high-speed and professional printing features packed in a slim body. The PIXMA MX7600 and PIXMA MX850 answer the all-in-one printing needs of small-office or home-based professionals, be it printing in monochrome or in colour, scanning, faxing and networking.
Canon raises the bar for its PIXMA line with every model. “We are proud to introduce the revolutionary Pigment Reaction (PgR) technology with the PIXMA MX7600,” said Canon president and chief executive, Ramon G. Arteficio. “With this clear-ink-coat capability, the inkjet printer’s bleeding and show-through are eliminated, leaving a no curling even in heavily-coloured prints,” Arteficio continues.
PIXMA iP100 – A printer on-the-go
The new PIXMA iP100 is Canon’s latest portable printer in an ergonomic 322x185x61.7mm, 2-kg lightweight body, smaller than your average-sized laptop. The travelling executive can print both professional documents and high-quality photos wirelessly via infrared from a mobile phone, PC or PDA, or via an optional Bluetooth adapter (BU-30) that can further expand connectivity. Charging time is only two hours for the PIXMA iP100′s optional long-lasting battery, capable of printing up to 450 pages with every charge.
As the PIXMA iP100 is built for the executive-on-the-go, printing speed is not compromised in its compact design. Monochrome A4 projects can be printed in speeds of up to 20 pages per minute (ppm), and 14ppm for colour.It is also capable of fast printing on envelopes as well as most marketing collaterals. For photos, the PIXMA iP100 is capable of printing beautiful, borderless ones in 4×6″, 5×7″, and A4 with its Easy-PhotoPrint EX software.
It also boasts of 1,856 nozzles that enable precision printing over high speeds over a single pass without compromising quality of resolution. The PIXMA iP100 delivers stunning 9600×2400 dpi resolution, and ink droplets size as small as 1 Pico litre, for crisp, vibrant, accurate colours with smooth graduations. With its unique “Save Black Ink” feature, the PIXMA iP100 allows continued printing even when the black ink tank is empty. The printer combines the cyan, magenta, and yellow inks to create a composite black.
Canon raises the standard of business printing with the introduction of two All-In-One (AIO) Business Printers – the PIXMA MX7600 and the PIXMA MX850. Both printers are designed to deliver not only high speed and quality, but also a host of media handling options and networking features to boost productivity and efficiency.
The PIXMA MX7600 uses the revolutionary Pigment Reaction (PgR) technology. An innovative ink system that infuses the unique properties of pigment ink with a clear surface coating, PgR technology produces high quality prints on plain paper with laser-quality text, sharp, vibrant graphics and stunning photos to add a professional touch to your most important prints. This technology applies a film of “clear ink,” effectively turning plain paper into coated, and acts as a protective layer, making even plain-paper prints resistant to water spills. It also allows the ink to dry twice as quick, relative to other inkjet printers, without the curling, ink bleeding and “show-through” associated with most colour inkjet printing on plain paper. The PIXMA MX7600 does not only print well, it also prints fast at 28 pages per minute (ppm) for monochrome documents, 23 ppm for colour documents, and only 43 seconds for a stunning borderless 4×6″ photo prints.
Business users will find the PIXMA MX850 to be the perfect choice for their professional needs as it is capable of fast document printing and copying, as well as lab-quality photo prints. With the capabilities of microscopic 1 Pico litre ink droplet, a maximum resolution of 9600×2400 dpi, and print speeds of 31 ppm for monochrome documents and 24 ppm for colour documents, the PIXMA MX850 is an innovation for efficiency. The PIXMA MX850 boasts of borderless 4×6″ colour photo in just 21 seconds.
