New Canon Wide-Format Color-Inkjet Printers
Canon U.S.A. today announced its new imagePROGRAF large-format, five-color 24-inch TA-20 and 36-inch TA-30 printers. Canon says its ink-jet TA Series printers offer end-users Canon’s high-quality software in a cost-efficient, easy-to-use solution, with an eye for small businesses and first-time large-format print users.
The multi-purpose imagePROGRAF TA Series is designed for printing posters, technical documents, and designs. These new devices provide users the ability to print on water-resistant media for outdoor signage by using Canon’s high yield TD pigment ink. Unlike printers that use dye ink, Canon says the TA Series uses pigment ink that can produce posters that can be used for up to six months outdoors, with no lamination needed when using Canon’s water-resistant media! With the ability to print border-less images on all paper sizes, Canon says these models help eliminate the need for manual cutting. And with wireless connectivity, users can print from anywhere in the office.
The TA printers also include Canon’s free poster-creation software, PosterArtist Lite, which enables users to design and print professional posters. These devices also come standard with a layout software enabling users to easily nest images minimizing paper waste and can print directly from Microsoft Office applications.
The TA Series can print a 24×36 inch document or poster in as fast as 27 seconds, on plain paper using Fast (Q5) mode. The series’ air-feeding system offers end users high quality, consistent printing which is designed to help increase productivity by helping the paper to remain straight to reduce wrinkles and paper jams.
“In order to evolve in the competitive large-format inkjet market, it is important for companies to develop productive, user-friendly solutions intended to meet customer and market demands,” commented Shinichi Yoshida executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With the new TA Series, users now have access to a printer complete with a full set of ink and software suite for a streamlined customer experience that is ready right out of the box.”
The TA printers ship standard with a total of 330 ml ink, which Canon says is 164-percent more ink than the comparable HP device, and 157-percent more ink than the comparable Epson device currently offered.
Designed for small businesses and home offices, Canon says the TA-20 and TA-30 devices are compact, quiet printers created to fit into small office spaces and cause less disruption in the workplace. To benefit overall user experience, these models feature a cost-efficient economy print mode, which allows for 40-percent less ink usage than standard mode. They also provide an on-the-fly ink tank technology that gives users the ability to replace ink during printing, helping to reduce the amount of media and ink wasted.
Other features include instructional videos to help entry-level users get the greatest knowledgeable value from their device. Users are able to access these informational videos by scanning the QR code displayed on the printer’s operation panel on their smart phone.
