New Canon Refillable Ink Tank Printer Expands Lineup of Printers Delivering Low Cost High Volume Printing for Home Offices and Small Businesses

PIXMA Ink Efficient G4000


SINGAPORE, 13 October 2016 – Canon, a world leader in digital imaging, proudly unveiled the latest addition of the PIXMA Ink Efficient G series Refillable Ink Tank printer with integrated ink tank design. The wireless*1 multi-function G4000 allow users to enjoy high volume printing, copying and faxing at extremely low running costs.

High Volume Economical Printing
Large ink bottles using Canon genuine inks deliver incredibly high page yields that will satisfy even the most demanding of home and home office users – up to 6,000 pages of black and white documents, and 7,000 pages of colour documents, and all without the need to make repeated ink cartridge replacements.

The printer makes full borderless printouts on plain paper or glossy photo papers up to A4 size. Thanks to the Canon Hybrid Ink System that combines the benefits of pigment black ink and colour dye inks, the printer delivers crisp presentation-ready documents and vibrant photos, making it a versatile performer compared to all pigment or all dye ink systems.

Integrated Ink Tank System and Quick Printer Setup
Designed for space-conscious users, the PIXMA Ink Efficient G4000 integrates the ink tanks within the printer body. Compared to competitor printers with large ink reservoirs mounted alongside printer bodies, the PIXMA Ink Efficient G4000 presents a highly compact chassis that allows users to observe remaining ink levels easily.

Printer setup for first-time use takes only 6 minutes, including the ink charging process. This presents significant time savings to getting the printer ready for operation, compared to competitor printers in the same class which can take up to 20 minutes or more.

Setting up the printer in a wireless environment is also easy for first-time printer owners, with guided instructions through the 2-line text LCD display. The printer also supports direct wireless connectivity so users can connect and print or scan by using just their mobile devices, without a wireless router.

Spill Resistant Ink Bottle Design
Users will find that PIXMA Ink Efficient G4000 ink bottles open easily without the need to prise open tin foils and pop caps, while unused ink is safely stored without worry of leakage with the secure screw-down cap. The ink bottle tips are also engineered to fit the printer ink tank openings, ensuring easy ink flow during ink refills, and preventing unintended splatter and mess.

Multiple Productivity Features
An integrated Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) allows users to feed up to 20-sheets of document originals for making copies of a multiple page document stack. Users can also choose to digitize the document images into PDF or JPEG formats and transfer the images to the PC for archival.

The printer features a new Document Removal Reminder function that reminds users when a document has been left forgotten on the scanner glass after a scan or copy operation. When a document is detected on the scanner glass following a minute after the last operation, an audio alert combined with a message on the LCD display will be triggered, minimizing the possibility that confidential documents are seen by unintended parties.

With the new ID Card Copy feature, users can scan and copy both sides of an ID card easily while retaining the original ID card size. For businesses that handle transactions involving copies of ID cards for verification purposes, this makes it easy to make duplicates, file and archive.

Mobile Printing with Cloud printing
The PIXMA Ink Efficient G4000 combines the advantages of wireless connectivity with mobile printing, making it easy to communicate with mobile devices such as Apple iPhones, iPads and Macbooks via AirPrint. The Canon Print Service plugin for Android OS offers similar driverless printing functionality for phones and tablets running Android OS.

Documents and photos can also be printed from data stored on local device memory using the Canon Print Inkjet/SELPHY mobile app for iOS and Android OS devices, or from social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, or file storage services such as Dropbox and Google Drive via the Canon PIXMA Cloud Link service.
