Canon U.S.A. Introduces Canon Print Service, Mobile Print Solution for Android Version 4.4 (KitKat) and HP Slate Devices

Delivers Easy-to-Use Solution for Current and Future Customers to a Variety of imageCLASS, PIXMA, imageRUNNER, and imageRUNNER ADVANCE Systems

MELVILLE, N.Y., July 7, 2014 - Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced Canon Print Service, a mobile print offering that enables users to print from any Android version 4.4 (KitKat) enabled devices as well as select HP Slate devices to select Canon models. Canon Print Service works on top of Android's recently announced printing framework and enables users to print their business documents, personal documents and photographs to Canon printing systems over a wireless network. The addition of Canon Print Service to Canon's mobile solutions portfolio expands easy Android device printing support.

Canon Print Service is an ideal solution for existing and new Canon customers, as users who already own compatible Canon systems don't need to upgrade their printers, nor download new driver software. Users will enjoy printing with options, including paper size, number of copies and orientation, to name a few.

"As the growth in mobility among individuals and businesses around the world expands exponentially, Canon U.S.A. continues to deliver to our customers the technology they need to remain productive and successful," said Junichi Yoshitake, senior vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. "With the release of Canon Print Service, we are demonstrating our commitment to existing Canon customers especially by offering them a valuable solution they didn't have when they originally bought their product."

The Android KitKat plug-in can be downloaded from the Google Play Store at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.co.canon.android.printservice.plugin.

The HP Slate plug-in can be downloaded from the Google Play Store at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.co.canon.android.print.printserviceplugin.g.
