Canon USA Rolls Out Seven Pixma Wireless, All-in-One Inkjet Printers, Adds More AirPrint Support


Melville, NY—Canon USA introduced enhanced printers for its Pixma line: the Pixma MG7720, the MG6800 series and the MG5700 series of wireless, all-in-one (AIO) inkjet printers. Also announced was AirPrint support for additional Pixma printers.

Engineered for high-quality photo and document printing and creative applications, each new model connects to wireless networks easier than before for quick printing from the Canon Print Inkjet/Selphy application with compatible smartphones and tablets. They also include copy and scan functions. And all utilize new genuine Canon inks, to provide “deeper blacks and more vivid reds in photos” and more visual impact for printing documents on plain paper than previous models. Another improvement is a reduction in the initial setup time of the printers, as compared to predecessors.

New features include the ability to print images directly from any Instagram feed, while Canon Easy-PhotoPrint+ and Creative Park web applications can be accessed from smartphones/tablets to share and edit photos using cloud technology. Plus, via the updated Canon Print Inkjet/Selphy app, all seven can print and scan images and documents to online social platforms and services, such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Photobucket, Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive. In addition, the models support Google Cloud Print for printing from Gmail and Google Docs on a mobile device, and from the Google Chrome browser.

“We are excited to announce these new Pixma printer models, including a new flagship model, that are ideal for anyone looking for a multipurpose printer with simple, direct wireless capabilities for easy printing of photos and documents,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon USA, Inc. “With an improved start-up process, new ink cartridges and an increase in compatible applications available making the printing experience more seamless, these printers cater to those that want to create high-quality prints at home or on the go.”

All of the models come with My Image Garden software with features designed to inspire creativity while empowering the sharing of images. My Image Garden provides Full HD Movie Print software to help users produce clear images of frames from videos captured on select Canon EOS digital SLRs, PowerShot digital cameras and Vixia camcorders.

Also featured are auto power on/off functionality, auto two-sided printing and PictBridge printing via wireless LAN for a direct connection to select Canon cameras.
