Kuala Lumpur, 19 October 2023 - Canon Marketing Asia (“Canon”), proudly hosted a momentous regional product launch event to introduce its eagerly awaited successor models of the successful TM series large format printers.

The event underscored Canon’s resilience and adaptability in the face of challenging times, reaffirming the company’s commitment to providing innovative solutions that meet the evolving needs of businesses in the region.
Set against the backdrop of JW Marriott Hotel in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, this grand affair was organised by Canon Singapore Pte Ltd and Malaysia was selected as the central hub to debut the all-new TM series which is Canon’s hero model of large format printers. Canon brought together its authorised partners and global staff from an extensive array of countries, including Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the Philippines, India, and other nations within the region.

With fully front-accessible operations, users can print with convenience from the front, making it more accessible and user-friendly. Borderless printing capabilities across various paper types and sizes provide endless creative possibilities to ensure top-notch printing that operates up to 28% faster than its predecessors. The introduction of a new magenta ink colour gamut elevates print quality, delivering unparalleled vibrancy and precision in every detail.
The launch featured a multifaceted agenda that encompassed keynote presentations from esteemed speakers from Canon’s Business Imaging Solution department that shed light on the latest advancements in large format printing technology. After the anticipated launch ceremony, all partners had the chance to touch and try out the new products and explored the variety of applications through demonstration.
