Canon has announced a new A3+-sized single-function document inkjet printer - the Pixma iX6870.
Equipped with LAN and Wi-Fi connectivity capabilities, the printer comes with the flexibility of high-capacity cartridge, and employs a 5-color individual ink cartridge system with Photo Black ink that improves color contrast performance. Businesses can opt for a higher yield black cartridge that can accomplish up to 800 pages (based on A4 document printing).
With a print speed of approximately 14.5ipm (monochrome), and 10.4ipm (color) in A4 sizes, it delivers on quality with the ability to print with precise microscopic 1 pico-letre (pl) droplets and supports up to 9,600 x 2,400 dpi. It can also print a 4- x 6-inch photo in 36 seconds.
Supporting up to five users, the wireless-enabled PIXMA iX6870 offers print-from-anywhere mobility when paired with the Google Cloud Print service. Users can now print on-the-go from their mobile devices via the Gmail or Google Docs application, or from a web browser on desktops or laptops running on Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Chrome platforms.
The Pixma Printing Solutions app for the iPhone, iPad, or Android devices offers a one-stop solution for printing and scanning images and documents from mobile devices. It provides users access to the printer's Remote UI, allowing them to check on details such as ink cartridge model codes, monitor remaining ink levels, and even initiate regular maintenance functions such as print-head alignment and cleaning.
The new Cableless Setup solution integrated into the app allows easy set-up in secured wireless environments, eliminating the need to install any utility programmes on host PCs. When users connect to the printer via a wireless access point, the PIXMA Printing Solutions application simplifies the passphrase authentication process down to the level of composing a text message on a mobile device.
Users can also gain access to the exclusive Solutions Template service, granting them the ability to download attractive and useful templates for personal or office use. These templates include restaurant menus, notices, brochures, and even posters, which are commonly printed in A3 sizes.
The Pixma iX6870 is now available at Canon’s authorized dealers for S$399.
