Maximizing uptime and user access means Canon TX-series printers are always working for you

We all know the frustration that can come with getting different devices to “talk to” one another. Hardware incompatibilities, out-of-date drivers, creating work in one app only to have to export to another… These all create unnecessary inefficiencies in a project’s path from conception to completion. Canon imagePROGRAF TX printers are specifically designed to make accessing and managing files—and then printing them with precision and beauty—as quick and painless as possible. This is not only due to Canon’s leading-edge hardware, but also a user-friendly software suite and myriad connectivity options.

Smooth-operating software

The primary way users interact with imagePROGRAF TX printers is via Canon’s Direct Print & Share software, which has been fully optimized for speed and ease of use. It enables printing of numerous file formats, including PDF, JPG, TIFF, and HP-GL/2, without having to switch between dedicated apps for each—a benefit for high-volume workflows. Likewise, “hot folder” printing allows users to print with pre-defined settings by simply dragging files to a desktop shortcut. Direct Print & Share also features a variety of enhancements for cloud-based sharing and storage, giving multiple remote operators real-time access to printable files.

And more included software facilitates further efficiency:

  • PosterArtist: Canon’s powerful design app helps you create professional-quality large format posters in four simple steps, and instantly share them with colleagues via the cloud.
  • Device Management Console: Allows administrators to monitor and manage multiple networked printers—to efficiently troubleshoot problems, replenish ink and printing media, and more.
  • AutoCAD Module: An AutoCAD-optimized driver means users can print directly from a variety of compatible AutoCAD software.

No missed connections

Just as straightforward software ensures a streamlined experience for imagePROGRAF TX users, support for a variety of remote-printing options helps to alleviate common pain points while ensuring your organization’s workflow can accommodate on-the-go employees.

In addition to cloud-based sharing and printing made available through Direct Print & Share, the TX series also features an expanding range of options allowing users to print from mobile devices—including iPads, via Apple AirPrint. And users who are onsite but without a dedicated workstation can print PDFs and JPEGs directly from any portable drive connected to the printer’s USB port.

Another simple yet elegant connectivity solution? TX-series printers are fully Wi-Fi enabled, saving you the hassle of fiddling with unwieldy cables and allowing multiple users to connect to the printer with fewer restrictions.
