New Canon PIXMA MG7120 and MG5520 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printers Offer Robust Cloud Connectivity for Fast and Easy Access to Online Content
MELVILLE, N.Y., August 22, 2013 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced two PIXMA Wireless1 Inkjet Photo All-In-One (AIO) printers, the PIXMA MG7120 and MG5520, featuring a new cloud-based PIXMA Printing Solutions (PPS) app2. With this innovative and user-friendly platform, users can access the cloud directly from their compatible printer, mobile device or tablet and easily print and scan images and documents directly from several of the most popular online services such as Facebook®, Twitter®, Flickr®, DropboxTM, Picasa Web AlbumsTM, Evernote®, Photobucket®, Canon iMAGE GATEWAY3, Creative Park Premium and Creative Park.
The Canon PPS app offers a unique way to interact with the cloud to unlock important images and documents that otherwise have been trapped on mobile devices and popular online services. Free for users of compatible iOS and Android mobile phones and tablets, the app allows users to wirelessly print from a mobile device or tablet with wireless capability from almost anywhere. After registering with PIXMA Cloud Link, users can log into the cloud function of the app, and then can access their images and documents on the above-mentioned online services to print using intuitive menus determining paper type, size and whether to print bordered or borderless images. PPS enables users to print multiple document formats including Word, Excel, jpeg and pdf, without having the original software loaded on a device. For added functionality, users can access the PPS cloud platform through the menu selections on the PIXMA MG7120 and MG5520 printer’s interface as well.
When using the cloud service of PPS, users with compatible iOS and Android-enabled devices can send and share images and documents to keep friends and family updated on their latest adventures. Now grandparents who live in San Francisco can receive images of their grandchild’s dance recital from New York directly on their home printer, so they can feel as if they were there in the crowd. Also, users can easily access and print documents and presentations to prepare for an important meeting the following day.
“As today’s lifestyle is increasingly mobile-focused, consumers are eager for easy-to-use tools that not only help make printing easier and more convenient – but will also provide more opportunities to express creativity and connect with loved ones,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “With the introduction of innovative platforms like PIXMA Printing Solutions, Canon looks to provide users with convenient connectivity and access to online content quickly and easily.”
The mobile version of the app also provides convenient access to the user interface of compatible printers, such as the ones announced today, to check ink model number information, online printer user manuals and other important printer information.
PPS not only allows for images and documents stored on compatible mobile devices2 to be easily printed, it also provides access to the scanner interface on a printer to scan directly to a compatible mobile device, as long as they are connected to the same network as the printer. Stored images can be printed directly from mobile devices as well, as long as they are connected to the same network as the printer. For added convenience, iOS users can upload commonly used documents into the PPS app through the iTunes application program to be printed when needed.
