Lake Success, N.Y., January 5, 2010
- Wouldn't it be great to be outside, sitting on the deck, watching the
birds fly by while drafting a business proposal rather than be stuck at
a desk, bound by printer wires? Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital
imaging, today announced the latest additions to the PIXMA Wireless1
Office All-in-One (AIO) series, the perfect remedy to ensure the view
is not obstructed by a window shade. With added features ranging from
sleek, stylish designs to improved functionality, these new models
would be a great addition to any home office or expanding business
looking to upgrade their equipment.
addition, Canon U.S.A. is partnering with renowned organization and
time management expert, Julie Morgenstern, to offer advice and tips on
effectively utilizing PIXMA AIO printers to help balance work and home
schedule demands. The addition of these new products further builds
Canon's commitment to providing quality and easy-to-use products which
help improve overall workflow.
"Providing consumers with the
necessary tools to help achieve the goals they have set out for their
business is something Canon strives to do," said Yuichi Ishizuka,
senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group,
Canon U.S.A. "We feel that these new PIXMA products will provide
consumers with the means to complete their work in a quick and easy
manner, while not sacrificing the professional quality they require."
The Canon PIXMA MX870, MX350 and MX340 Wireless1
Office AIO printers come equipped to handle roughly any assignment.
With an innovative design and the ability to print images and documents
from almost anywhere, the printers can be set up in almost any part of
the home office or small business environment. From printing large
presentations outlining new business objectives to creating
professional quality images of a family vacation, the Canon PIXMA
Wireless Office AIO printers answer the needs of business during the
day while helping preserve the family's memorable moments at night.
to help increase overall work productivity, the PIXMA Wireless Office
AIO products feature a new and improved operation panel enabling users
to perform basic functions by simply pressing the Mode key. Users can
easily select an operation to perform and navigate through menus and
functions easier than ever before. A new addition to these printers is
the Auto Document Fix feature which simultaneously helps deliver
easy-to-view scan results for easy sharing and repurposing while
sharpening and blackening document text to increase readability. When
scanning documents, such as magazines or newspapers, Auto Document Fix
removes the background and the show through from the other side of the
page making it easier to view.
The Auto Photo Fix II feature can
be found on all the new models launched today as well. This feature
helps correct common photo errors, such as underexposed images, helping
users get the most out of them. Whether looking to enhance photos from
a sunny family reunion or a dark auditorium from a child's play, Auto
Photo Fix II can assist with features such as Multi-Zone Exposure
Correction, improvements in overall face detection, scene analysis,
plus brightness and saturation correction. For Apple iPhone users, the
Canon Easy-PhotoPrint EX for iPhone (iEPP) application is available for
free on the App Store and compatible with the new Wireless AIO printers
allowing images to be printed quickly and easily shared with friends
Included on each PIXMA Wireless Office AIO printer
is the ability to print up to four separate documents on the front side
of one page of paper helping to improve organization and decrease
consumption. This eco-conscious feature helps to reduce paper usage by
limiting unnecessary printing while also improving business processes
by helping to decrease the amount of time it takes to prepare large
presentations. Further adding to paper reduction is the Easy-WebPrint
EX (Windows only)2 software which helps make printing
documents from the Web amazingly simple. The included Auto Clip feature
lets users select a specific part of a Web page to print rather than
having to print the whole page, thus helping to further conserve paper.
With the emergence of cyber technology, it is more important
than ever for businesses to be able to protect their documents and
information from being compromised. Each of the new Wireless Office AIO
printers can help protect PDF's by restricting access to printing or
editing files without the proper authorization to help keep those
high-priority documents more secure.
