Posted April 06, 2018 12:32:00By April 06th, we will be seeing the first images of the new Canon Pixma scanner.
While the PIXMAST scanner has been available to consumers in the US and Canada for a while now, it is the first product to be made by a Japanese manufacturer, and we expect to see this machine debut in Japan sometime in the next few weeks.
The PIXMAX is the same printer we’ve seen at the heart of the Pixels family, but the scanner is not the same as the PX100, the PY100 or the PXL1000.
While these are all scanners that can be used for scanning paper, the difference between the PxMAX and PXL is that the PXXMAST will be manufactured in the Japanese city of Fukuoka, while the PXT100 will be made in Tokyo.
The PXMAST is expected to ship in early March.
According to the Canon spokesperson, the new PXMAX will be able to scan 100,000 dots per second.
The scanner can scan 50,000 to 80,000 points per second, and it can do an image depth of 100 microns.
The size of the print will be around 16.4 x 12.5 inches (42 x 28 centimeters), and the price tag is expected at $6,000.
The only differences between the scanner and the PXY100 are that the scanner will be thinner and lighter, and that the sensor will be an FFT (field-effect transistor) instead of the typical SFF (sensor-focusing) method used by many scanner manufacturers.
The two scanners will use the same software, with the PxxMAST using the proprietary MDA-LAPIS software.
The new PXXMAX scanner is expected be released sometime in early April, and the exact date will depend on availability.
We’ll have to wait and see what this scanner is capable of, and whether or not it will be a success in the print shop market.
The Canon PXMax scanner is coming to Japan soon, so expect to start seeing more images of this printer in the near future.
