Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced two PIXMA Wireless 1 Inkjet Photo All-In-One (AIO) printers, the PIXMA MG7120 and MG5520, featuring a new cloud-based PIXMA Printing Solutions (PPS) app 2. 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 ®, Dropbox TM, Picasa Web Albums TM, Evernote ®, Photobucket ®, Canon iMAGE GATEWAY 3, 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.
