“Canon’s new line of PIXMA printers complements life’s best moments through its ability to preserve and share memories on-the-go, with double the dynamism”, said Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore. Designed in a compact form to blend seamlessly into home offices or even parties, the stylish printers are superb for daily printing needs with the new Photo Blue ink in its six-colour ink system that guarantees vibrant and stunning prints.”

Changing The Way Memories are Captured in Print

Imagine a heartwarming birthday greeting that carries voices and sounds from an actual celebration, or a photo postcard of a concert that emits the very tunes being played at the performance. The new Message in Print app[1] makes all these possible. Allowing for personalised messages with animations or links to web videos to be embedded in any photo[2], the meaningful surprise can be delivered simply through viewing the photo via the Message in Print app.

True Colour Fidelity with Photo Blue for Beautiful Photos

Canon’s new 6-ink system delivers breathtaking colour reproduction with an expanded colour gamut. With the new Photo Blue ink in the 6-ink systems for the PIXMA TS9170 and TS8170, photos graininess are minimised to reveal finer details. With ink cartridges available in standard and XL capacities, small businesses can enjoy lower costs of print using XL cartridge on the PIXMA TR8570 Office All-In-One printer.

Seamless, Low Energy Connectivity[3]

With wireless connectivity, users can print and scan photos and documents directly from a mobile device, to deliver the convenience of printing on-the-go.

With Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, users can always stay connected to PIXMA printers via the Canon Print Inkjet/SELPHY app. Besides enjoying the convenience of printing anytime, anywhere, they can enjoy easy wireless printer setup, and receive status alerts such as low-ink notifications or when there is no paper in the tray, simply by being within Bluetooth discoverable range of the printer.

User-Intuitive Functions Packed into a Sleek Form

Equipped with a large 5” touch-screen display mounted on a tilt panel, users can enjoy a variety of creative filters to achieve special effects like monochrome and sepia in their prints, when printing from memory cards on the PIXMA TS9170.

Similarly, the PIXMA TS8170 and TR8570 feature an adjustable tilt panel that houses the 4.3” touch-screen LCD, making it perfect for consumers who want a versatile printer without needing to compromise on speed and productivity.

As a space-saving all-rounder, the PIXMA TS5170 features a 2.5” LCD on an adjustable tilt panel, which makes it easy to operate and view menu options.

Maximising Work Productivity

With the ability to load paper in two directions (rear tray and cassette tray), users can switch easily between two different paper types, such as plain paper and glossy photo paper. Those that do need to print a large number of documents can even fill both trays with A4 plain paper for a combined paper capacity of up to 200 sheets.[4]

The automatic duplex printing[5] function enables both time and cost savings through eliminating the need to manually reverse a previously printed stack. Additionally, the PIXMA TR8570 also features a time-saving Automatic Document Feeder that can load up to 20-sheets of documents for scanning or copying.

The Document Removal Reminder function is yet another useful feature for ensuring document security. When a document is left on the scanner glass after a scan or copy, a notification on the LCD panel and an audio alert prompts the user to remove their original document left on the scanner platen. The ID Card Copying function allows double-sided ID cards to be scanned onto a single printout, while retaining the original card size.
