This article presents information on the Laser Shot printer developed by Canon. The printer boasts about its speed, which is 18 pages per minute. It uses Automatic Image Refinement technology to produce quality prints. Zero warm-up time and a first print in less than 10 seconds gives the Laser Shot one of the fastest first prints of any printer in its class. The device also has advanced print driver and smart compression architecture. Unlike traditional printers that rely heavily on use of memory for data processing, Laser Shot rasterises the print job and compresses the data before transmission to the printer function. This reduces the amount of memory required in the printer and eliminates the common print processor bottleneck, feeding the print engine fast enough to keep it running at full speed via its universal serial bus interface. It also employs an intuitive graphic user interface, which allows control of all printer variables from the Windows desktop. The sound-assisted interface allows users to see the printer as an extension of their computer for seamless integration between applications and print jobs. Laser Shot accepts A4 transparencies, envelopes and plain paper.
