Canon, Brother and Sharp have just introduced their latest printers
TechRadar reported on the launch of three new cloud-connected Canon PIXMA inkjet printers aimed at "image-focused" businesses and consumers, with Canon noting that the devices "simplify" printing as well as scanning and editing photographs.
The new machines – the MG7520, MG6620 and MG5620 – are all connected to the PIXMA Printing Solutions application, which in turn links to Canon's Easy-PhotoPrint application to allow users to "print documents directly from websites and applications". TechRadar gave the example of users "tapping on a Facebook photo", scanning it onto the printer, editing it and printing it "without connecting any cords".
Two other applications included are Canon's Cloud Link and PictBridge programs, which can be used to "share scanned documents via email" and "connect Canon digital cameras directly to the printers without the need for a computer" respectively. The MG7520 is said to be "top-of-the-line" from the new range, and features a dual front tray, direct disc printing and six ink tanks capable of printing 9600 x 2400 dpi color photos.
The MG7520 also includes a 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen and a range of different color choices for its exterior, including burnt orange, black, and white "with a mirror finish", and costs $199.99, whilst the MG6620 is available for $149.99 and the MG5620 for $99.99.
Twice.com shared the announcement of the value Brother SOHO (Small Office Home Office) monochrome laser printers, which includes the HL-2360DW, HL-L2320D, HL-2380DW, MFC-L2740DW, MFC-L2700DW and MFC-L2720DW machines.
The new models, Brother stated, "maintain the company's value suggested retail price points", with the single-function machines including a one-line LCD display that "prompts users with instructions for connecting to a wireless network", as well as automatic duplexing as standard alongside the Brother Web Connect interface for the MFPs, which allows users to "scan to and print from popular cloud services without the need of a computer".
The devices feature print speeds ranging from 27 ppm to 32 ppm, and contain a high-yield toner cartridge that can print up to 2,600 pages, in addition to a 250-sheet paper tray. Recommended retail prices are as follows: $149 for the HL-L2360DW; $119 for the HL-L2320D and the HL-L2380DW; $299 for the MFC-L2740DW; $199 for the MFC-L2700DW; and $249 for the MFC-L2720DW.
The MX-C301W, a desktop color MFP, was launched by Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), and features "flexible" workflow capabilities alongside a "compact footprint" designed to fit on a small desk, with wireless connectivity, a seven-inch touchscreen panel and print speeds of 30 ppm.
The printer also supports Sharp's OSA platform, which simplifies integration with partner network applications, as well as the OEM's Cloud Portal Office service, which offers document storage and sharing online. Its Sharpdesk Mobile free application also works with the printer, enabling "simplified" scans and prints from phones and tablets.
Security features include SSL encryption, confidential printing, secure faxing, and the ability to erase the hard drive's temporary memory by "overwriting encrypted data up to seven times", with the additional option to "overwrite all data" after a leasing period. The device is now available for both purchase and leasing in the US market.
Mike Marusic, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Operations at SIICA, stated: "More and more small businesses and workgroups are asking for high quality document capabilities that have the flexibility to connect with the latest technologies. The MX-C301W helps address this need with a desktop solution that not only provides business quality output, but is loaded with standard features, such as wireless connectivity, a touch-screen control panel and robust security protocols."
