By FocusM |   |  Lifestyle

Canon, a world leader in digital imaging, introduced the new PIXMA TR150 portable wireless printer designed for on-the-go business professionals. With direct printing from smartphones, a USB-charging battery pack, and the ability to store user-designed form templates in device memory, the PIXMA TR150 promises true PC-free operation combined with robust performance for all high-quality documents needs.

“It has become the new norm for people to work from remote locations, especially during the Movement Control Order (MCO). Having the right equipment under such circumstances are vital for businesses to run effectively,” said Sandy Lee, Head of Consumer System Products Division at Canon Marketing Malaysia. “The new PIXMA TR150 mobile printer is easy to use as it produces high-quality printouts, leveraging on Canon's print technologies and features.” she added.

Ultra-portable with impressive set of features

The compact and slim profile of the PIXMA TR150 allows it to slot easily into a carry-on bag or briefcase. A high-contrast 1.44” OLED display adorns the top panel, making it easy to change print settings without a connected laptop whilst displaying information such as remaining battery levels, ink levels, as well as on-location Wi-Fi signal strength.

A common Kensington security slot (K slot) is located at the side of the printer body, for an extra anti-theft deterrent when working with the device outdoors, or in hot-desking work environments.

The printer achieves plain text document printouts at up to 9 images per minute (ipm) and up to 5.5 ipm for colour documents. An added bonus is its ability to print A4 images on glossy papers up to A4 borderless sizes - especially useful for creating glossy cover sheets for important client proposals.

Customised Print Template

The ability to store up to 5 customised print templates in device memory truly sets this printer apart from all others. It enables business professionals to work more productively by storing frequently-used form templates for instant reprints, without the need to ever reach for a laptop or mobile phone.

Ink Systems Designed to Suit Different Printing Needs

The printer is powered by two ink cartridges: a pigment-based black ink cartridge, and a colour ink cartridge. This Canon Hybrid Ink system achieves flexibility in printing text and line documents with great precision and contrast, while retaining the option to deliver photo-realistic images on plain paper or glossy papers – perfect for producing an impressively sleek glossy cover page to finish off an urgent client presentation.

Print from Anywhere

The battery pack can be charged using an AC adapter or a USB-C cable, both included in the package. Even when the battery is depleted, a mere 10 minutes of emergency charging by AC power will restore 36 pages of printing performance into the device, never compromising on productivity even after prolonged periods of non-usage. The TR150 also supports dual-band Wi-Fi on the 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz bands, and also Wireless Direct technology that allows printing from smartphones directly without the need for a router or connection to an infrastructural network.

Different ways to connect wirelessly

The Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY app for iOS and Android allows you to print copy and scan effortlessly using your smartphone or tablet, directly access cloud services and even remotely check printer status, remaining ink levels, or access online user guides. The TR150 also supports Apple AirPrint, Mopria and Canon Print Service (Android plugin) for direct printing.
