Canon launched he PIXMA MP800R, and the PIXMA MP830 models.
The PIXMA MP830 Office All-In-One
Incorporated into the sleek design of the PIXMA MP830 Office All-In-One is a printer, copier, scanner, and fax capable of creating long-lasting photographs as well as color and black and white documents. It is a next generation All-In-One device designed for desktops, but with business in mind.
Calling upon its award-winning copier-manufacturing heritage, Canon's new MP830 AIO is a productivity powerhouse with exceptional speed and efficiency. The MP830 unit provides users with an automatic document feeder (ADF) that can copy or scan both sides of a document automatically. The Auto Duplexing feature permits two-sided copying/scanning, without the need to manually turn over pages and re-feed the document. Customers are able to print two-sided documents automatically as well. What's more, the ADF is capable of handling up to 35 sheets of letter-sized paper for copying, scanning, or faxing. For large volume print jobs, the PIXMA MP830 Office All-In-One features a two way paper feed with a capacity of up to 300 sheets of letter-sized paper. On-unit control options include an Auto Exposure Copy function that can alter the density and contrast of a document, an improved PDF creation function (compared to previous software versions) when the unit is in scanning mode and a "push scan" option that makes it easy to send an image to a computer as a file or an email attachment.
When used as a document printer the PIXMA MP830 Office All-In-One shifts into overdrive, generating vibrant black and white documents at a rate of up to 30 ppm and brilliant color documents at up to 24 ppm. In copy mode, the PIXMA MP830 Office All-In-One tops out at up to 29 copies-per-minute (cpm) (monochrome) and up to 24-color cpm. Canon even designed the unit's color Super G3 fax(6) with speed, and ease of use in mind. It includes features that allow users to receive up to 250 incoming pages; one-touch speed dialing (eight numbers) and a coded speed dial function that can store up to 100 locations.
The PIXMA MP800R Photo All-In-One
The PIXMA MP800R Photo All-In-One helps to deliver the efficiency and peace of mind required by any home or office that has welcomed the wireless revolution. The MP800R unit is ideally suited for customers who wish to print over their wired (Ethernet) or wireless (WiFi IEEE802.11b/g) networks(7). Utilizing WPA - the latest wireless security technology that helps make users wireless printing more secure - the PIXMA MP800R Photo All-In-One easily generates high quality photos and documents, scans documents at up to 2400 x 4800 dpi, and can share data over multiple PCs.
PIXMA MP800R Photo All-In-One users can also adjust scanner settings and check the machine status remotely. The printer fulfils prints jobs in the order it receives them, so a networked family can use the machine at the same time from different computers and different areas of the house.
Among the unit's high-function photo features are the quick and easy one-touch photo reprint button, a scanner platen capable of accommodating two 4 x 6-inch photos at once and a built-in 35mm positive or negative film scanner capable of capturing up to six 35mm negatives/positives, or four mounted slides. The scanner is so advanced it automatically adjusts the alignment of the images by up to ten degrees to straighten images.
Users can also take advantage of the PIXMA MP800R Photo All-In-One's automatic image editing features. Providing functions as basic and essential as cropping and trimming, the unit also helps brighten faces, correct backlit situations, and reduce image grain. Users can also renew treasured old photos with functions that reduce dust, scratches and help correct fading.
What's more, users can correct red eye, adjust color, and apply creative photo effects when printing directly from one of the unit's memory card slots. Even prints taken from low-resolution camera phone images can have their typically jagged appearance improved by employing the unit's on-board Image Optimizer technology.
In stores beginning in mid-March, the new PIXMA MP830 Office All-In-One and the new networking PIXMA MP800R Photo All-In-One carry an estimated selling price of $299.99 and $399.99, respectively.
