A Closer Look at The All-New Canon PIXMA Lineup
Business owners will want to take note of the all-new PIXMA line-up. The PIXMA TS9170, TS8170, TS5170 photo all-in-one printers and the PIXMA TR8570 office all-in-one printers introduce a unique feature that marries technology with a human touch, bound to delight home and business users alike.
Message in a
Businesses can now convey their season’s greetings to their customers beyond just a graphic print or a photo. The new Message in Print app enables messages to be embedded within photos, enabling a digitally immersive experience to printed material.
This is more than just a simple text overlay customization – photos can now carry voices, sounds and animations by embedding them through the app. Recipients simply have to view the photo via the Message-in-Print app, and experience a whole new way of interacting what was previously a static medium.
Maximising Work Productivity with the PIXMA TR8570
The PIXMA TR8570 helps businesses work more efficiently and cost-effectively. With the ability to load paper in two directions (rear tray and cassette tray), users can switch easily between two paper types.
Those that do need to print a large number of documents can fill both trays with A4 plain paper for a combined paper capacity of up to 200 sheets. The PIXMA TR8570 features a time-saving Automatic Document Feeder that can load up to 20-sheets of documents for scanning or copying purposes.
Moreover, businesses can now enjoy lower costs of print by using the XL cartridge on the PIXMA TR8570 office printer.
The Document Removal Reminder
The Document Removal Reminder function helps remind business users print safely and securely. When a document is left on the scanner glass after a scan or copy, a notification on the LCD panel along with an audio alert prompts the user to them.
This helpful function minimizes unwanted information from being left unattended on the printer, compromising the security of the company.
Vivid and Vibrant Colours
For businesses that require accurate colour reproduction, Canon’s new 6-ink system delivers a precise, expanded colour gamut. With the new Photo Blue ink in the 6-ink systems for the PIXMA TS9170 and TS8170, graininess is minimised, while the finer details are revealed.
The end result is a vibrant, stunning print that matches what users have on-screen – perfect for companies such as advertising or graphic design agencies that require accurate output.
With Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, users can stay connected to PIXMA printers via the Canon Print Inkjet/SELPHY app.
Besides enjoying the convenience of printing on-the-go, users can now receive status alerts — such as low-ink notifications or when the paper tray needs filling up — once they are within the printer’s Bluetooth discoverable range.
With the increasing use of mobile smartphones as a business communications tool, such seamless connectivity will help streamline operations in the office.
