The new models are from the PIXMA G series.
The printers, the PIXMA G1400, PIXMA G2400 and the PIXMA G3400, are said to be “capable of printing up to 7,000 colour and 6000 black pages from a single set of ink bottles” reported Zawya. A continuous ink supply system (CISS) is a new feature of Canon’s refillable ink tanks, which “offer volume printing” and “reduces ongoing ink expenditure”.
The G1400 is a single-function printer while the G2400 and G3400 are MFPs, and all three have high print speeds and a technology that prevents air getting into the ink feed tubes. The company noted that “for prints with high levels of detail” the 4,800 x 1,200dpi print engine “offers smooth gradations and fine detail”.
The four compact refillable ink tanks face forward, so that it is clear when they need refilling, and the bottles are “designed so that topping up is quick and mess free”. The G3400 is WiFi-enabled and can be used with smartphones or tablets with “full compatibility with Canon’s new PRINT app”, and has cloud compatibility with a range of services. All of the printers come with Canon’s My Image Garden Software.
Somesh Adukia, B2C Sales Director for Canon Central and North Africa (CCNA), commented: “The demand for cost effective all-in-one office inkjet printers has significantly increased in Egypt for offices where high yield printing is the norm, or home users who enjoy printing all their best photographs. These printers offer genuine value and low cost printing, with an unrivalled page number output for ultimate productivity. We are happy to cater to this growing segment and take forward Canon’s vision of providing cutting-edge technology to business and home-office users.”
Adukia also spoke about Canon’s partners in the region, and pointed out how important the “channel partners” were to the company’s success, stating: “As the first-point for market feedback, our partners provide us valuable insights on customers. By listening to them and working with them, we will continue to expand our business in 2016. We see strong growth opportunities in the region and we will continue to add value to all our stakeholders during 2016.”
