Canon Australia strengthened its range of inkjet printers with the addition of a new A3+ professional photo desktop printer – the PIXMA PRO-200, and two new home office all-in-one devices – PIXMA Home Office TR8660 and PIXMA Home Office TR7660.
Designed to meet the needs of professional and enthusiast photographers, the compact PIXMA PRO-200 A3+ professional photo desktop printer expands the range of colour reproduction achieved by its highly acclaimed predecessor – the PIXMA PRO-100S – while realising the same printing capabilities and configurations.
The PIXMA PRO-200’s enhanced range of colour reproduction is achieved via a new 8-colour dye ink system which enables high-image quality and high-productivity printing of artistic photographs. The newly developed magenta and black ink contribute to an expanded colour gamut for reds and blues and more faithful reproduction of blacks while also improving black densities, Canon explained.
The PIXMA PRO-200 pairs its capability to print standard high-grade A3+ bordered colour prints in approximately 1 min 30 secs with improved media capabilities. This includes the ability for professional photographers to print on a range of photo paper surfaces and finishes up to 0.6 mm thickness in addition to producing panorama size prints and gallery wrap support functions.
The PIXMA PRO-200 is compatible with Canon’s Professional Print & Layout PC software which enables faithful reproduction of photos captured using EOS series cameras and supports various software and application extensions including the Media Configuration Tool PC software utility, and image editing software such as Digital Photo Professional and Adobe Photoshop.
The PIXMA PRO-200 features three connectivity methods, Wi-Fi, ethernet, and USB.
The Canon PIXMA PRO-200 will be available from authorised local dealers from mid-November 2020. Pricing will be set at dealer discretion.
Both the new PIXMA Home Office TR8660 and the PIXMA Home Office TR7660 can print, scan, copy and fax, with each function within easy reach via the printers’ large LCD colour touch screen displays and simple to navigate interfaces.
Both printers are equipped with an Auto Document Feeder (ADF) that allows a maximum load of 20 pages, and makes continuous document reading possible when using copying and faxing functions to improve business efficiency.
Both printers are capable of quick print speeds of approximately 15.0 ipm for B&W documents and 10.00 ipm for colour files. Furthermore, both printers maintain the compact design synonymous with the Canon home printer range, measuring approximately 438 mm (W) x 351 mm (D) x 190 mm (H) in size when stored.
Canon’s new home office printers come with improved Wi-Fi connectivity. For iOS and Android devices, Canon’s Wireless Connect button enables easy printing via users’ smartphones. Available for iOS devices only, Canon’s QR Code Direct Connection enables users to scan the QR code displayed on the printer’s LCD screen to create a direct connection, negating the need to input information such as the printer’s SSID8 or various passwords.
The new PIXMA home office TR8660 is also equipped with an SD memory card slot to enable users to print images directly from the memory card, further streamlining printing.
The Canon PIXMA Home Office TR8660 and PIXMA Home Office TR7660 printers will be available from authorised local dealers from September 2020. Pricing will be set at dealer discretion.
