Mobile printing of documents and photographs helps drive a new level of efficiency and enables the great images shared on social networks to be wirelessly and conveniently printed and displayed in our homes," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies and Communications Group, Canon U.S.A.
Canon PIXMA Office AIO printers are designed with features to increase productivity and overall efficiency in the home office. The PIXMA MX922 printer features two front cassette trays enabling users to easily manage a range of printing jobs and maximize user productivity by enabling two media types to be loaded and ready at all times. The larger cassette tray conveniently holds up to 250 sheets of letter or legal-sized paper, while the other can hold up to 20 sheets of 4 x 6-inch or 10 sheets of 5 x 7-inch photo paper. Wireless printing will be that much more efficient, as users do not have to switch over and manually load paper when printing documents or photos. For large-volume jobs, the PIXMA MX922 printer has a 35-page Automatic Duplex Document Feeder while the PIXMA MX522, MX452 and MX392 models are equipped with a 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder.

Each new model also works with Evernote, a cloud-based service that allows users to take notes, save webpages, capture inspiration, share ideas and sync all that information across devices. Using compatible Canon printers, documents and papers can be easily scanned into Evernote via wireless or USB connection. Additional compatible printers are: PIXMA MG6320, MG5420, MG4220, MG3220, MG2220 and MP230.

In addition, images can be further customized with Fun Filter Effects, such as Fish-Eye, Miniature and Toy Camera. With Creative Park Premium users can access photos and illustrations, such as greeting card cover art and calendar images, and apply them to their own designs. The printers also offer a suite of post-editing tools and effects, such as Automatic Suggestion which allows users to sync a folder with the software to display images in a slideshow to help bring awareness to those that may have gone unnoticed.
