Digital imaging and printing solutions provider Canon Marketing (Malaysia) has unveiled a new range of printers for the small and home office market in Malaysia.

Canon Marketing (Malaysia) director of consumer system products division Donny Ling said the models - PIXMA E600, the premium Home AIO PIXMA MX897, the new inkjet range MX517 and MX377 as well as the FAX-L170 laser fax machine - include ink efficiency, fax security, and PIXMA Cloud link capabilities.

"Efficiency is of utmost importance for any business operations and especially so in a home office business environment. With that in mind, the printers launched today are designed to be the perfect home office companion," said Ling.

"[For example] one of the key time-saving features of the PIXMA E600 is the fully-integrated ADF [automatic document feeder] that holds up to 30 sheets of documents at a time, allowing users to automate tasks like high-volume copying and scanning. With the ADF's help, users can save time and concentrate their attention on other tasks," he said, adding that the PIXMA E600 comes with a dedicated high-capacity black ink cartridge that can print up to 800 pages per refill.

"Meanwhile, The Premium 5-In-1 Home Office Printer - PIXMA MX897 - is a great asset to any home office set-up with its easy operations, PIXMA Cloud Link, mobile printing feature and Quiet mode that can be used to reduce its noise levels and maintain a home office's tranquillity," said Ling. "Users will find the PIXMA MX897 easy to use with its 3.0" LCD display and Dual Function Panel (DFP) that has large and easy to press keys and only the appropriate buttons for each function are lit so that users will never be daunted by a large amount of irrelevant controls." 

"Another nifty feature in the MX897 is the Canon PIXMA Cloud Link where users can connect straight to the Canon Cloud Server by using the printer's 3.0" LCD screen and browse through various templates to print useful stationeries when required," he said. "Users can also connect to their online photo album and print out photos, all without the use of a personal computer. The MX897 further lessens the dependence of computers with its mobile printing capabilities. Using either iOS or Android devices, users can connect to the printer via wi-fi to print photographs and pdf documents directly from their mobile devices or scan images and documents directly into their mobile devices.
