Canon U.S.A. Announces New Home Office Printer Powerhouse, the PIXMA MX892 … – Virtual

Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today
announced the PIXMA MX892 Wireless1 Office All-In-One (AIO)
printer as the flagship model in the award-winning family of Canon PIXMA
office printers. Designed with the home office user in mind, this print,
copy, scan and fax machine has a variety of connectivity options for
easy printing of documents and images from the cloud and other
compatible portable devices. The addition of this new model to the Canon
PIXMA Office AIO printer lineup helps continue the tradition of
providing users with high-quality results and versatility to help
increase productivity.

Canon has designed the PIXMA MX892 Wireless Office AIO printer to help
home-office users easily access and print materials through utilities
such as Google Cloud Print2 and PIXMA Cloud Link. Google
Cloud Print will enable Gmail messages, file attachments and select
Google Docs to be sent to the printer for printing from any computer,
tablet, or smart phone. For those registered with Google’s PicasaWeb
Albums3, there is PIXMA Cloud Link so users can print photos
directly from their online albums. The printer also provides direct
access to a wide range of printable templates, such as stationary and
calendars, so photographers can get creative with their images.

Adding to the printer’s connectivity options is the Canon
Easy-PhotoPrint (EPP) mobile app, for use with compatible Apple and
Android smart phones and tablets, where documents can be scanned on the
printer and sent to the device. Users can also print PDFs of documents
that were created with the app directly from these devices4.
The Canon PIXMA MX892 Wireless Office AIO printer will also have 802.11n
wireless capability allowing for a high-speed network transfer rate and
easy sharing on a network. Setting up a wireless network for multiple
users to quickly share information can be accomplished with the press of
one button when using Wireless Protected Setup (WPS). An Ethernet port
has also been included as an alternative when wireless is not available,
allowing for a hard line connection for easy sharing with multiple users
as well. Canon U.S.A. offers its award-winning service and support
online for all of its users looking to set up any of the new wireless
products at www.usa.canon.com/wirelesshelp.
Here, customers have access to video tutorials and manuals to assist in
setting up a wireless printer.

“With users increasingly utilizing the cloud to store important
documents and images, it is imperative to provide an easy way for these
materials to be printed easily when they are needed,” said Yuichi
Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging
Technologies Communications Group, Canon U.S.A. “The variety of
connectivity options supported by the PIXMA MX892 Office All-in-One
printer allows the flexibility to do just that, and provides the users
with the comfort of knowing that the end result will be high-quality.”

Productivity at its Best

The Canon PIXMA MX892 Wireless Office AIO printer utilizes the
ChromaLife 100+ system5 with five individual ink
tanks producing superb quality for presentations and memorable images at
a maximum color resolution of 9600 x 2400 dpi6. When the
latest task includes creating a family photo album, the printer allows
you to easily view images on the 3-inch LCD screen and can generate a 4”
x 6” borderless photo7 in approximately 20 seconds8.
The scanner capabilities feature an incredible resolution of 2400 x 4800
dpi to help ensure the duplicate copy will be equivalent to the
original. Further adding to the functionality of the machine, is the
capacity to provide print output at approximately 12.5 images per minute
(ipm) for black-and-white documents and approximately 9.3 ipm for color9.

A major concern for home office users is being able to scan oversized
documents to be distributed at important meetings. With the Canon
exposed user interface, scanning or copying of large sized documents can
be accomplished without interfering with any buttons needed to perform a
task. Further adding to productivity is the Dual Function Panel, which
makes navigating through menus and functions a very smooth process. When
switching between the fax function and either print, copy or scan
functions, the keypad will switch from the standard numbers to a
directional keypad thus making the printer look sleek, clean and easy to
use.

The Canon PIXMA MX892 Wireless Office AIO printer comes with additional
features which can help increase productivity and conserve paper usage.
With Advanced Media Handling capabilities such as a 35 sheet Duplex Auto
Document Feeder that allows for quick two-sided copying and scanning in
addition to Auto Duplex printing, users can perform other tasks while
the printer handles the bulk of the workload. The printer also has two
paper feeds which can hold a maximum of 150 sheets of plain paper each,
helping ensure paper will not run out unexpectedly while working. With
the two paper feeds, there is the option to load one tray with standard
paper and the other with specialty paper so the user will not have to
re-load when changing types of print jobs and save time.

Let Creativity Shine Through

For those interested in customizing photos, Easy-PhotoPrint EX software
is available for this feature-packed printer with a variety of fun
filter effects such as Fish-Eye, Miniature, Toy Camera, Soft Focus and
Blur Background. Full HD Movie Print10 software has also been
included, producing clear images of frames from videos captured on
compatible HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital cameras. An added bonus is
exclusive printable content through CREATIVE PARK PREMIUM11.
The content on this website includes family projects such as Eric Carle
greeting cards and photo frames as well as calendars to keep track of
important business meetings and appointments.

The Canon PIXMA MX892 Wireless Office AIO printer will have an estimated
selling price of $199.9912.
