New features include improved initial set-up time, direct printing from Instagram and new ink formula
MELVILLE, N.Y., August, 18, 2015 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced enhanced printers for its PIXMA printer line: the PIXMA MG7720, the PIXMA MG6800 series and the MG5700 series of Wireless1 Inkjet All-in-One (AIO) printers. Ideal for high-quality photo and document printing and creative applications, each model can connect to wireless networks easier than in the past for quick printing from the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY2 application with compatible mobile and tablet devices. Catering to the wants and needs of the everyday user, each model can also be used to create additional copies and scan important documents for archiving purposes as well. All of the printers utilize new genuine Canon inks, which provide deeper blacks and more vivid reds in photos for easy printing at home, and provide more visual impact for printing documents on plain paper than previous models.
To further expand upon the usability and effectiveness of the Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY application and PIXMA Cloud Link3, new features include the ability to print images directly from any Instagram4 feed, so special moments can live beyond the screen. In addition, Canon Easy-PhotoPrint+5 and Creative Park web applications can be accessed from compatible smartphones and tablets to share and edit individual photos using cloud technology as well. Also, documents can be printed from SlideShare and users can send scanned documents directly to OneNote®6.
Improving upon initial setup time as compared to predecessors, users can install the printer drivers approximately 30 percent faster with the PIXMA MG7720 printer. All seven models also have an improved wireless printing experience for compatible smartphone and tablet users through the updated Canon PRINT Inkjet/SELPHY application, and can easily print and scan images and documents to several of the most popular online social platforms and services, such as Facebook®, Twitter®, Flickr®, Photobucket®, Dropbox®, Evernote®, Creative Park, Google Drive™ and Microsoft® OneDrive™. In addition, these models support Google Cloud Print™, for printing from Gmail™ and Google Docs™ on a compatible mobile device, and from the Google Chrome™ browser for Mac®, Windows®, Linux® and Chrome OS™ operating systems.
