"Developing high-quality, yet affordable printers that produce excellent output is always a top priority for Canon," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. "We are excited about the addition of these PIXMA Photo AIO printers, especially with features we feel consumers will enjoy."
In today's world, it is more important than ever for consumer products to have a variety of connectivity options so users can quickly and easily access their information. Through the support of Wi-Fi connectivity, the Canon PIXMA MG4220 and PIXMA MG3220 Wireless AIO printers allow users to print from almost anywhere. The PIXMA MG4220 model provides access to the Canon PIXMA Cloud Link for easy printing of images and documents stored online. As part of this feature, the printer supports Google Cloud Print™1 for printing from Gmail™ and Google Docs™ on a mobile device and from the Google Chrome™ browser for Mac, Windows, Linux, and Chrome computers. For registered users of Picasa Web Albums, users can wirelessly access photo albums directly through both wireless printers without the use of a computer. All users will have access to exclusive printing templates including stationery, envelopes, memos, calendars and many others. In addition, both wireless models work in tandem with the Canon Easy-PhotoPrint mobile app3, for use with compatible Android and Apple smartphones and tablets, providing easy printing of photos and PDFs of documents.
Unlock Your Photos
Canon has created two exciting solutions to unlock your images, "My Image Garden"3 software and the "Print Your Days" Facebook4 application, for users to get the most out of their images and empower the sharing experience. With "My Image Garden" software, photos stored on computers can be easily organized into three categories: Calendar, Event and People. With Calendar View, images can be sorted by the dates they were captured while with Event View, images captured at a special event can be easily stored in a separate folder and accessed to share with friends and family. For People View, once a person's likeness has been registered with the software, Image Assorting Technology and Face Recognition technology is utilized to automatically upload a specific person's image to their respective folder for easy access.
A noteworthy feature of the software is an Automatic Layout function, where multiple images can be selected and based on the priority given to each image, the appropriate layout is selected to create a beautiful keepsake image. There is also an Automatic Suggestion feature where photos stored on a computer are automatically created into various appealing collages and calendars to appear in a desktop slideshow to help bring awareness to those images that may have been forgotten and should be printed.
An additional feature of the software is My Art for customizing photos through various templates including collages, greeting cards, calendars, stickers, disc labels and paper crafts. "My Image Garden" also features Full HD Movie Print5 to produce clear images of frames from videos captured on compatible HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital Cameras and VIXIA Camcorders, in addition to Fun Filter Effects such as Fish-Eye, Miniature and Toy Camera for further image customization.
With social media sites increasingly becoming the gatekeepers for images from special occasions and events, Canon developed the "Print Your Days" Facebook application where users can print one single photo or combine a maximum of five images into one collage from their Facebook photo albums. Designed with a simple and intuitive layout, users can select the paper size (A4, 8.5 x 11, 4 x 6, 5x7 or 8 x 10-inches), design the layout of images for the collage, add text boxes and utilize photo effects.
