Canon has announced four new PIXMA TS-series and TR-series Wireless Home Office All-in-One (hereafter referred to as AIO) printers and two new home scanners: the PIXMA TS9520, PIXMA TS8220, PIXMA TS6220, and PIXMA TR4520 AIO printers and the CanoScan LiDE 300 and CanoScan LiDE 400 Color Image Scanners. The most notable addition to their line is compatibility with Amazon Alexa. All of the devices respond to voice commands such as “Alexa, start ‘Canon Printer’ and ‘print a coloring page’”. Additionally, you can also confirm their printer’s status, such as remaining ink levels, using voice commands. Canon plans to include support for such Google Assistant-enabled devices as Google Home towards the end of 2018, so if your smart home uses that interface you're not going to be left out to dry for long.
So what can you expect from the new devices? Let's take a look at each of them.
The PIXMA TS9520 printer offers premium quality and functionality benefits to print, copy and scan both documents and photos beautifully including 11 x 17 inch documents. The printer also features an enhanced multipurpose tray, enabling users to print on select materials other than paper, such as disc labels, providing a variety of home office output functions all in one machine.
The PIXMA TS8220 printer is a compact business and home office 3-in-1 option for speedy operations, redesigned with a mirrored finish to create a printer that fits in seamlessly with any home décor. The printer features a 4.3-inch touch panel display for a streamlined user experience as well as 45 built-in patterns for customized prints. Similar to the TS8220 model, the PIXMA TS6220 3-in-1 printer features high-speed document printing for producing text, graphs and images with vivid clarity and 35 built-in patterns to create customized prints. In addition, like the other TS models, the TS6220 also features individual ink tanks so the user only replaces the ink that is needed.
Canon’s 4-in-1 compact business and home office inkjet printer, the PIXMA TR4520 supports automatic copying of multiple sheets with an automatic document feeder (ADF). In addition, the printer can copy both sides of an ID card or card-sized documents automatically, and can fax documents.
All four printers include two-sided printing, copying, scanning, Wi-Fi® capabilities and hybrid color-ink systems.
New additions to the Canon scanner lineup, the CanoScan LiDE 300 Color Image Scanner and CanoScan LiDE 400 Color Image Scanner are lightweight and portable for families on the move. Powered by USB and featuring an advanced Z-lid expansion top, both scanners allow easy scanning, especially of thick documents up to 1.5 inches high, like magazines and books.
The PIXMA TS9520 printer has an estimated retail price of $249. The PIXMA TS8220 and PIXMA TS6220 printers have an estimated retail price of $199 and $149, respectively, and the PIXMA TR4520 printer has an estimated retail price of $99.
