As home office working becomes the new way of life, Canon U.S.A., Inc. unveiled the Canon PIXMA TR150 wireless printer, as well as its optional battery for portability. The Canon PIXMA TR150 printer, when paired with the optional battery (sold separately), provides a lightweight portable option for quality printing needs for the out of the office business professional. These models were launched in Europe earlier this month.
“With their time-consuming schedules, today’s business professionals require products that are easy to use and produce high-quality documents,” said Kazuto Ogawa, President and Chief Operating Officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The new Canon PIXMA TR150 printer can help business professionals in and out of the office to conduct business efficiently, leveraging Canon print technologies and features, including an OLED screen and Wi-Fi connectivity.”
Canon describes it as perfect for a business on the move with the improved battery and ability to print more pages than before. The Canon PIXMA TR150 with battery encompasses fast and accessible charging through either the AC power adaptor or the bundled USB Type-C cable using a compatible in-car charger, power bank or laptop.
Building on Canon’s heritage for easy-to-use printers, the PIXMA TR150 features a 1.44” mono OLED high-resolution screen, providing real-time ink levels and battery life indication (for PIXMA TR150 with battery) for easy navigation and complete visibility. Unique to this mobile printer, the PIXMA TR150 can store up to five pre-saved custom templates which the user can print directly from the screen without the use of a laptop, PC or smart device, and can quickly produce core documents with speeds of 5.5 ipm for colour and 9 ipm for mono.
Fast and functional, the PIXMA TR150 with battery employs quicker charging (2 hours 20 minutes via the AC adapter) and the ability to print up to 330 pages from a single full charge. For enhanced usability, an easy attach-detach battery function ensures no tools are required which is ideal for when working on the go.
The PIXMA TR150 is compatible with iOS and Android, users can print wirelessly via the Canon PRINT app or print from popular cloud services such as Google Drive and Evernote with the PIXMA Cloud Link.
For those needing to make copies of documents on the move, Smartphone Copy can be used to easily take photos of documents and send directly to print. Users can also print using Mopria for Android, AirPrint for iOS or Windows 10 Mobile without having to download any additional apps.
Users without a router can simply click the dedicated Wireless Connect button and initiate a 1-to-1 connection with the printer to their smart device.
The hybrid ink system facilitates quick delivery of high-quality text and graphics, including last-minute presentations, charts and graphs when on the road. The system boasts a pigment black cartridge for sharp text, and a combined dye based four-colour cartridge (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) to achieve vivid photo prints with up to a 100-year album life. When running low on pigment black, the ‘save black ink’ mode allows for economical printing by reducing the use of black ink, so users are never caught short.
Capable of producing A4 borderless prints and the rear feed able to hold 50 sheets of plain paper, this model is perfect for pop-up shops needing to create vibrant point of sales materials at the touch of a button.
Planned to be available in late March 2020, the Canon PIXMA TR150 printer will have an estimated retail price of $199.99 (€181.73) and the optional battery will have an estimated retail price of $99.99 (€90.86).
