Ink supplies maker Canon has unveiled two new premium all-in-one machines intended for use in home office environments.
The Pixma MX715 and the Pixma MX895 and are claimed by the manufacturer to offer a range of advanced connectivity features and should be suitable for producing business documents and items such as colour photos.
Both models offer scanning, copying and faxing functionality in addition to printing, with the machines including a flatbed scanner with high resolution 2,400 dots per inch scans and a 35-page automatic document feeder.
Canon also promises users will be able to achieve high print quality for documents, graphics and photos thanks to the firm's FINE print head technology. This offers 9,600 dots per inch resolution and small droplet size that can create smooth gradations and fine detail to deliver lab-quality outputs.
The five individual Canon ink cartridges could also help to lower running costs, as users will only need to replace the tank that has run out and not the whole set, which minimises ink wastage. Other eco-friendly options include automatic duplexing to cut down on the amount of paper used.
Both the Pixma MX715 and MX895 are also designed to make it easy to print documents directly from mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets due to its range of connectivity options.
"Built-in Wi-Fi capability allows for scanning and copying from virtually anywhere in the office and with Canon's Easy Photo-Print App, PC-free printing and scanning from mobile iOS or Android devices is also quick and easy," Canon stated.
This could be valuable to many users, as it was recently stated by Kodak in a feature for Digital Arts Online that mobile printing offers greater convenience and flexibility to individuals.
The models also come with a range of photo editing and will be available across Europe from April.
