Canon today announces the launch of three new web-connected All-in-One inkjet printers to lead the refreshed Pixma home range. Pixma MG5550, Pixma MG6450 and Pixma MG7150 bring a new level of connectivity to home printing, providing direct access to cloud services and social networking sites.
The new Pixma Printing Solutions app is compatible with all three devices and allows users to control their Pixma printer from virtually anywhere in the world via a tablet or smartphone. It mirrors the services available on the printer, so content can be printed from online albums, social networking sites and cloud storage sites, as if they were using the device’s own TFT display. Remote access to PIXMA Cloud Link also allows the user to check real-time ink levels and access the printer’s online manual.
Each model is equipped with a TFT colour LCD display. The Pixma MG5550 features a 6.2cm display, Pixma MG6450 a 7.5cm and Pixma MG7150 an 8.8cm touchscreen display with an Intelligent Touch System, which guides the user through the system for even easier use without a PC.
Pixma MG6450 and MG7150 allow easy photo printing direct from a memory card. They also feature Wi-Fi PictBridge capability, which enables easy photo printing direct from Wi-Fi PictBridge-enabled cameras without the need for any cables. All three models also have efficient energy-saving features, such as auto two-sided printing and copying, and an Auto Power On feature, which automatically turns on the printer when a print job is sent.
Also announced are three new inkjet printers. The new Pixma MG2450 and MG2550 offer print, scan and copy functionality and come in stylish new finishes. The Pixma MG3550 is available in three stylish colours and features Wi-Fi connectivity, supports smartphone and tablet printing and is capable of producing photo lab quality prints.
All the new Pixma printers include Canon’s flagship software My Image Garden, a one-stop platform that combines all Canon Pixma software in a single, easy-to-use interface, and ensures effortless navigation between printing and scanning functions. It includes Canon’s Full HD Movie Print for creating photo prints from movies taken on Canon compact cameras, video cameras or DSLRs.
