Canon has announced the launch of four new four–in-one multi-function devices (MFDs) and a new colour single-function printer (SFP). The refreshed range has been designed to give partners an efficient and productive offering.
The new MAXIFY MB2150 series, MB2750 series, MB5150 series, MB5450 series and the iB4150 will replace the MAXIFY MB2050, MB2350, MB5050, MB5350 and iB4050 printers, bringing improved levels of efficiency, quality and choice to small business and home office customers.
The upgraded printers have also been designed to enable growing businesses to gain greater visibility of their printing habits, identify usage pattern and arm themselves with the information they need to control print costs. The range is suitable for flexible working and for office spaces where printers are shared by a team or small businesses. With built in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, MAXIFY devices allow printing to be shared between multiple PCs and wireless devices around the small office.
Compatibility with the Canon PRINT app allows users to connect to the printer, using a smartphone or tablet device for printing and scanning. Apple AirPrint and Android are supported as standard. Additionally enhanced mobile connectivity via the MAXIFY Cloud Link will be available on all models, enabling users to print from cloud based services such as Evernote, Dropbox, OneDrive, Concur and Google Drive, all without the need for a PC.
- The four-in-one devices offer fast scan, copy and fax alongside professional quality prints.
- Faster First Page Out Time (ISO-FPOT-MONO) of six seconds, and improved A4 print speeds of 24ipm for black-and-white and 15.5ipm for colour.
- The MAXIFY MB5150 and MB5450 feature Canon’s Single Pass two-sided Scan functionality.
- The MAXIFY range features high-capacity single ink cartridges.
To help partners address increased concerns around information security, the new devices feature enhanced security and network management options. Networking functions such as SMTP[i] and IP address filtering, reduce security concerns for scanning by making data pass through the users’ mail server, and limit user access by IP address.
The new Canon MAXIFY printer range will be available across Europe from July 2016.
