Melville, NY—Canon USA launched the Pixma G-series MegaTank printers: the Pixma G1200 single-function printer; G2200 all-in-one printer; G3200 wireless AiO printer and the G4200 wireless AiO printer.
This new line of printers is geared for high print volume environments within home offices, dorm rooms or anywhere consumers need a low-maintenance printer with connectivity.
“Our Pixma G-series printer models offer smart design inside and out,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon USA, Inc. “Expanding the line of Pixma printers with the added benefit of a built-in refillable ink tank system highlights Canon’s commitment to continuing to enhance the printing experience in businesses and in the home with genuine Canon print reliability.”
Using new pigment and dye hybrid inks, each of the G-series MegaTank printers features a front-facing, built-in refillable ink tank system. The system is designed to make it easy for users to monitor ink levels and also refill when needed. Paired with the ink bottle’s spill-resistant tops, the system provides clean usability at home and the office.
The new hybrid integrated system of replenishing ink was developed to be cost effective and offer a higher page yield than the prior generation of Pixma printers. According to specs, the black ink provides up to 6,000 pages per bottle and the total color ink combination provides up to 7,000 pages.
The G-series printers’ refillable ink bottles offer 135 ml in the black bottle and 70 ml in each color ink bottle. In addition, the printers’ initial installation setup time frame (for ink installation only) is approximately six minutes.
A key feature of the G-series printers is their overall size. Rather than having bulky side-mounted refillable tanks, all of the printers have an integrated front-facing refillable ink tank system. Furthermore, the G2200 MegaTank all-in-one printer provides users with the option to print and scan.
The G3200 and G4200 printers have similar functionality, and the G4200 model offers an LCD screen and fax option. The Pixma G4200 printer also features an automatic document feeder to copy and scan multiple documents without having to load them one page at a time.
Pixma G-Series MegaTank Print Speeds
Each G-series printer offers print speeds up to 8.8 images per minute (ipm) in B/W and 5 ipm in color. They can also produce a borderless 4×6-inch photo in approximately 60 seconds. In addition, the printers offer a maximum color resolution of 4,800×1,200 dpi.
With Wi-Fi capabilities, both the G4200 and G3200 wireless AiO printers permit users to print from almost anywhere. By using a smartphone and the Canon Print app, users can access Pixma Cloud Link to print photos and documents from online social platforms and services, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Photobucket, Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive, as well as from Canon Creative Park.
The G4200 and G3200 printers also support Google Cloud Print for printing from Gmail and Google Docs on a compatible mobile device. They can also print from the Google Chrome browser for Mac, Windows, Linux and Chrome computers.
