New MAXIFY SoHo Printers
Canon has announced a significant update to its SoHo (Small office, Home office) and small business print portfolio with the launch of MAXIFY.
The new range of business inkjet printers designed to support the demand from small and home offices for high-volume colour printing.
Canon's new MAXIFY inkjet printer range consists of four multi-functional devices (MFDs), the MB2050, MB2350, MB5050 and MB5350, as well as one single-function printer, the iB4050.
The MAXIFY range provides small business customers with connected devices that produce professional quality colour printing and high-quality copying, scanning and faxing whether in or out of the office at a competitive price point.
Mark Robinson, Market Business Developer at Canon UK and Ireland, said: The ability to print anywhere – directly from mobile or tablet, or even from a range of cloud storage providers through dedicated mobile printing applications – means that SMEs can take the office with them like never before.
The devices in the range have been designed to support home office environments, with the print capacity varying from 1,000 to 15,000 pages per month.
Claimed print speeds are 23ipm for mono and 15ipm for colour. The MB5350 features Canon's new Single Pass two-sided Scan functionality, which allows both sides of the document to be scanned simultaneously.
The MAXIFY printers use a new Dual Resistant High Density ink that has been designed specifically for the range.
The new ink is specially formulated for business documents and is water, friction and marker resistant for extra durability, according to Canon.
Canon claims the MB2050 and MB2350 produce up to 1,200 black-and-white pages, while the small office MB5050, MB5350 and iB4050, produce up to 2,500 mono pages before cartridges need to be replaced.
WiFi connectivity allows the printers to deliver wireless printing from mobile devices. Canon's MAXIFY Cloud Link offers printing from and scanning directly from the printer screen to cloud storage providers such as Evernote, Dropbox, OneDrive and Google Drive.
In addition, Canon's MAXIFY Printing Solutions App delivers similar functionality via a smartphone or tablet. The printers are also compatible with mobile printing solutions such as Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print.
The MAXIFY printers also feature Canon's scan-to-email function, which allows users to save time and send scanned documents and images as email attachments directly from the printer.
The new Canon MAXIFY printer range will be available in Ireland from October 2014.
