Canon launches new premium office All-In-One printers
Canon has announced the launch of two new premium All-in-One printers ideal for home office environments. The PIXMA MX715 and PIXMA MX895 come with enhanced functionality and connectivity features to make printing from smartphones and tablets easy.
Replacing the PIXMA MX885 and PIXMA MX870, the new PIXMA models are stylish in design and feature fast colour document print speeds. A range of business orientated features deliver improved productivity, including high-speed fax capabilities, a 35-page Duplex Auto Document Feeder (DADF) and Auto Duplex printing.
Enhanced Business Productivity
The new PIXMA MX715 and PIXMA MX895 are designed with the home office user in mind and boast fast print speeds for quickly creating documents and graphics. The models produce ISO speeds of 12.5ipm for black and white documents and 9.3ipm for colour prints, and can produce an A4 copy in just 14 seconds. Canon FINE print head technology ensures photolab quality; a 1pl ink droplet size and 9600dpi print resolution produces documents and images with smooth gradations and fine detail.
For quick and easy scanning, copying and faxing of multiple page documents, both models feature a flatbed scanner, boasting 2400dpi high-resolution scanning and a 35-page Duplex Auto Document Feeder. The models also offer versatile media handling with two-way paper feeding and a self-opening paper tray.
The PIXMA MX715 and PIXMA MX895 also come with eco features. New ECO Settings software allows users to save paper through Auto Duplex printing, which enables automatic double-sided printing for greater efficiency. Minimal ink wastage is also ensured through the five separate ink tanks, which can be changed individually when they run low to reduce printing costs.
Connect and Share
The new PIXMA MX715 and PIXMA MX895 are designed to enable easy printing from smartphones and tablets with new connectivity features. Built-in Wi-Fi capability allows for scanning and copying from virtually anywhere in the office, and with Canon’s Easy Photo-Print App, PC-free printing and scanning from mobile iOS™ or Android™ devices is also quick and easy. In addition, with direct access to the cloud, users can even print their favourite photos directly from online albums, including CANON iMAGE GATEWAY and Picasa Web Albums, using the Online Album Photo Print function via the PIXMA Cloud Link. The new PIXMA printers also include a range of print-ready templates, including calendars, envelopes, stationery, memos and other useful resources, which are all available at the touch of a button with Web Template Print.
The new models include a range of features to enable easy operation. Quick Start ensures the printers can start operating swiftly after powering on, for easy and quick printing on demand. Both models feature a large TFT display to easily preview and select documents and photos directly from memory cards; the MX895 features a 7.5cm display whilst the MX715 has a 6.2cm display. The new Dual Function Panel, from which the user operates the printer, features LED-lit dual purpose keys. Only the keys needed for the function being performed are lit up, for greater ease of use.
A comprehensive suite of intuitive software for photo and document printing and scanning comes as standard on the new MX devices. Smart and efficient web printing is enabled through Easy-WebPrint EX, which allows multiple web pages to be clipped and then combined on one page, to minimise paper and ink wastage.¹
Easy Photo-Print EX software means users can impress friends and family by creating and printing perfectly formatted photo albums and calendars. The software also offers a range of editing options, such as Red Eye Correction and Digital Face Smoothing.
The new PIXMA printers also support Full HD Movie Print, which gives users the ability to capture and print beautiful still images from Full HD video footage shot on Canon’s range of Digital SLRs or Canon Digital Still Cameras. Multiple still images from movies can also be combined to give a sense of motion to prints with the Merge Frames feature.
The PIXMA MX715 is available from April 2012.
