New Canon Wireless Printer Pairs with Smartphones to Offer Mobile Document Scan and Copy

SINGAPORE, 13 November 2017 – Canon, a world leader in digital imaging, today introduces the PIXMA TS207 and TS307. The TS307 stands out for being the first-ever wireless*¹ printer designed to deliver high-quality printing, document scan and copy, by harnessing high-resolution camera optics found on modern smartphones.

"The latest PIXMA printers strike a fine balance between versatility and affordability for home and small offices." said Mr. Satoru Takeda, Vice President of Regional CII, Canon Singapore. "In catering to smartphone users, the PIXMA TS307 is designed in a thoughtful way to bring about absolute convenience. Document scans and copy in high resolution can be made directly through smartphones, without the hassle of using PCs or laptop."

PIXMA TS307: When paired with a smartphone and the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app, the TS307 transforms into a multitasking workhorse, producing high-resolution scans of A4 documents or pages from books. A stylish grid surface doubles as a slip-resistant document scan table, where documents or books can be placed flat before image capture with a smartphone camera. Document edges are automatically detected, images are optimized in-app for brightness and contrast seamlessly before printing. Alternatively, images can be converted to PDF format and saved to the local library of the mobile device, cloud service, or sent over email.

The PIXMA TS307 is also equipped with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for easy wireless setup, as well as one-touch access point mode connectivity for connecting with mobile devices easily in the absence of wireless routers. AirPrint and Wireless Pictbridge connectivity round up the suite of powerful wireless connectivity options for this affordable, yet versatile printer. 

The PIXMA TS207 succeeds previous generations of printers in the same class, delivering superior performance coupled with style. A glossy-grid textured surface breaks out over the printer exterior for a touch of sophistication while offering protection from fingerprint smudges. Alongside crisp text and strong colours for documents on plain paper, the printer also produces borderless 4R photos effortlessly.
