Four new printers launched among brand’s flagship technologies packed in slim body designs.
Canon, one of the world’s leading corporations in imaging technology, last week unveiled four new large format printers at an event entitled “Canon Ignite – Explosion of Future Technology” in Ho Chi Minh City.
They include the 24-inch imagePROGRAF TM-5200 and imagePROGRAF TM-5205 and the 36-inch imagePROGRAF TM-5300 and imagePROGRAF TM-5305 models.
All belong to the company’s imagePROGRAF TM line designed specifically for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), a key segment in Vietnam. Indeed, according to the Japan External Trade Organization, in Vietnam, enterprises with total revenues below $8.6 million account for more than 95 per cent of the country’s total and contribute 49 per cent of national GDP.
The segment is set to revel in the advanced technologies the TM Series offers, which includes advanced power and cost management and security features normally reserved for enterprise-grade printing solutions. The TM Series packs all of this power within a perfect-size printer, ideal for smaller offices where space is frequently at a premium.
Specifically, business and education industries and design, construction and production companies that require the highest printing quality and speed will be vital target segments for the product line. Equipped with LUCIA TD 5-colour pigment inks and operating at only 44 decibels (dB), TM printers will bring industry-leading experience to users and empower higher productivity with less distracting-noise in the workplace.
“The TM Series is an exciting addition to our Vietnam business offering,” said Mr. Hiroshi Yokota, Canon Marketing Vietnam’s President and CEO. “The SME segment is a driving force in Vietnam’s economic growth, and an area in which Canon has been able to always delight Vietnam with products that meet exceed the price, space and performance requirements of the entrepreneurs that lead these businesses.”
“Today, customers in many business and public-sector environments want to produce high quality large format prints on demand and need to keep external costs down,” said Mr. Pieter Kraan, Canon’s Head Regional Wide Format Printing Division, General Manager. “From that, we identified an opportunity to create a product optimized for businesses with lower print volumes who can still benefit from having their own large format inkjet printer. With high configuration and incredible speed, these printers make it easy to produce high-quality, true-color prints at the best cost and minimal noise.”
