Not to be outdone by its neighbor booth, Samsung Electronics, Canon U.S.A. has its best and brightest products out on the show floor accompanied by Cirque du Soleil dancers amid a bright and colorful landscape in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
In the world of Canon, the printer group introduced five new office inkjet printers on Wednesday morning before CES 2011 opened and four of the five were on display at their booth including the Pixma MX882 Wireless Office All-in-One, the Pixma MX420 Wireless Office All-in-One , the Pixma MX410 Wireless Office All-in-One and the Pixma iX6520 Inkjet Business Printer.
As we previously reported, the Canon PIXMA MX882 Wireless Office AIO is the flagship of the new office lineup with four devices in one compact footprint: print, scan, copy and fax. The Pixma MX882 features a 3-inch LCD with the new Dual Function Panel in lieu of the standard control panel in hopes of making navigation a simpler process. The Dual Function Panel centers on a keypad that switches from standard numbers to a directional keypad depending on the need of the user.
Other features include print speeds up to 12.5 ipm in black and 9.3 ipm in color with a print resolution up to 9600 x 2400 dpi, a ChromaLife100 ink system with five individual ink cartridges, a 35-sheet ADF, automatic duplexing, a built-in memory card reader and a front side USB port.
The Pixma MX882 Wireless Office All-in-One has an estimated selling price of $199.99. Check out our hands-on video of the MX882 from the show room floor!
The Pixma MX420 Wireless Office All-in-One is the next step down from the MX882 with a similar black design and four devices but with a smaller 2.5-inch LCD and traditional control panel we’ve seen previously on Pixma Office AIOs. The MX420 also offers print speeds up to 8.7 ipm in black and 5.0 ipm in color with a print resolution up to 4800 x 1200 dpi, a 30-sheet ADF, built-in memory card reader and a two cartridge ink system for $149.99
The Pixma MX410 and the Pixma MX360 are the entry level models at $99.99 and $79.99, respectively, and they share almost identical spec sheets – print speeds up to 8.7 ipm in black, 30-sheet ADF, two cartridge ink system, etc. – except that the MX410 offers wireless connectivity while the MX360 solely offers a USB connection.
However, you will be able to tell the two apart because Canon is shipping out the MX410 with the same glossy black design seen on the MX420 and MX882 while the MX360’s gray design is similar to the previous generation Pixma Office AIOs.
The last, but not least, release is the Pixma iX6520 Inkjet Business Printer. This single function wide format printer features print speeds up to 11.3 ipm in black and 8.8 ipm in color with a print resolution up to 9600 x 2400 dpi. It can print 11 x 17 inch documents and 13 x 19 inch photos.
