CANON U.S.A. INTRODUCES THREE HIGH-QUALITY PIXMA OFFICE ALL-IN-ONE PRINTERS AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE
LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., February 7, 2012 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the addition of three PIXMA Office printers to the lineup: the MX512 Wireless1 All-In-One (AIO), MX432 Wireless1 AIO and the MX372 AIO. These new print, copy, scan and fax models help continue this tradition and are designed to provide users with the confidence that the final output will match the original concept.
Available for both new wireless models is the Canon Easy-PhotoPrint mobile app2, for use with compatible Apple and Android smart phones and tablets, allowing documents to be scanned on the printer and sent directly to a compatible device. Users can print PDFs of documents that were created with the app directly from compatible devices, whereas in the past only photos could be printed.
With 802.11n Wi-Fi capability, the PIXMA MX512 and MX432 Wireless Office AIO Printer models are capable of a high-speed network transfer rate. Setting up a wireless network can be easily accomplished with the press of one button when using Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). Canon U.S.A. offers its award-winning service and support online for all of its consumers looking to set up any of its wireless products at http://www.usa.canon.com/wirelesshelp. Here, customers have access to video tutorials and manuals to assist in setting up a wireless printer.
“With many people making the decision to work from home, it is more important than ever to have a printer you can rely on to produce high-quality prints no matter the project,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “Canon has recognized this trend and will continue to make products designed to satisfy the needs and wants of the end user.”
When making the decision on which printer to purchase, an important factor that users look for is overall ease-of-use. Taking this into account, Canon has developed the FastFront system and an exposed user interface included on all three new printers. Located on the front of the printer, the FastFront system allows users to open the front panel of the printer to easily access both the ink and paper for easy replacement. Each printer utilizes the two-cartridge ChromaLife 100 ink system3 – one black cartridge and one color cartridge– providing high-quality prints on plain paper, while still delivering high-quality photo prints. With the exposed user interface, the user can scan or copy important documents without having to worry about the document blocking the control panel and buttons required to perform the task.
Unlock Your Printing Creativity
Full HD Movie Print4 software has been included on all three models, allowing users to produce clear images of frames from videos captured on compatible HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital cameras. With Easy-PhotoPrint EX software, consumers can unlock their creativity with a variety of fun filter effects such as Fish-Eye, Miniature, Toy Camera, Soft Focus and Blur Background. An added bonus included with these new printers is exclusive printable content through CREATIVE PARK PREMIUM5 website. The content on this site includes projects users can print to enjoy with their family, such as Eric Carle greeting cards and photo frames as well as calendars to keep track of important business meetings and appointments.
