New Canon PIXMA TS All-In-Ones for Home Use Feature Six-Ink System, ‘Message in Print App,’ More
Canon U.S.A. today introduced five new PIXMA TS-series Wireless color inkjet All-In-Ones for home users, the PIXMA TS9120, TS8120, TS6120, TS5120, and TS3120, which it says provide a host of new features, including a new six-ink ink system for enhanced photo printing; Bluetooth connectivity for wireless printing and scanning; and the new, interactive Message in Print app. The Message in print app will soon be available for users of compatible Apple iOS devices in the fall of 2017, and enables users to embed messages, video, and other content in photos (see below).
The new All-in-Ones provide print, copy, and scan, and are geared for home users, including tech enthusiasts and crafters.
The TS9120 ($199.99 MSRP), TS8120 ($179.99), TS6120 ($149.99), TS5120 ($99.99 MSRP), and TS3120 ($79.99 MSRP) incorporate popular features from Canon’s previous series of PIXMA TS All-in-Ones, including cloud-printing via a compatible smartphone or tablet using the Canon PIXMA Cloud Link, high-resolution scanning, and support for a variety of paper sizes and types.
The new TS9120 and TS8120, like previous flagship models, provide “super-sized” 5.0″ and 4.3″ LCD touch-panel screen to allow users to select copy, scan or print, as well as two-way paper feeding, and two-sided automatic duplex printing.
The Message in Print App for compatible Apple iOS devices provides unique personalization when sharing photos. The user embeds a code onto a customized photo through the app, prints, and then sends it. The app allows embedded messages to appear on the screen of the recipient’s device when holding it over the received printed photo. Messages can range from videos or photos with animation and background music, and may include text, dates, location information, and URLs. The result combines a physical photo with an enhanced digital component such as music or video.
The TS9120 and TS8120 also feature upgrades such as:
- Six-way color ink system with a new Photo Blue ink designed to reduce graininess that can be found in bright-colored prints from blues to whites.
- Direct print allows users to print photos directly from a compatible SD card or from a digital camera without connecting to a computer.
- Disc-label printing allows users to print directly onto BD/DVD/CD labels.
Specifications for the new All-in-Ones include:
- Print a bordlerless 4′” x 6″ in approximately 17 seconds.
- Print speed rated at 15 (black)/10 (color ppm).
- Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and Mopria mobile-printing support.
- 100-sheet front paper tray, and 100-sheet rear paper tray.
Depending on model, connectivity includes: Hi-Speed USB port, wired Ethernet network interface, PictBridge (LAN/Wireless LAN), Wi-Fi Wireless 802.11b/g/n and memory-card slot.
The All-in-Ones are available in various colors: the PIXMA TS9120 is available in a gray, gold, or red; the PIXMA TS8120 in black, white, or red; the PIXMA TS6120 and PIXMA TS5120 in black or white; and the PIXMA TS3120 in white.
