Innovative Design, Flexible Capabilities

Quick access to important documents and files is critical to a successful
business environment. The wireless^1 functionality in the Canon PIXMA MX922
and MX452 Wireless Office All-In-One Printers helps users to easily manage
print jobs from virtually anywhere in the home or small office. To help
increase productivity and reduce overall printing costs for large-volume jobs,
the PIXMA MX922 printer has a 35-page Automatic Duplex Document Feeder while
the PIXMA MX452 printer is equipped with a 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder.
The PIXMA MX922 printer also utilizes a high-capacity 250-sheet paper cassette
to help limit the disruption of reloading paper. The sleek, compact design can
easily fit in most home offices and handle a range of printing jobs, including
CD or DVD projects due to the Direct Disc Print capabilities, which removes
the need for additional and often times expensive software solutions for
printing labels. The PIXMA MX452 printer incorporates the FastFront loading
functionality to help employees save valuable time with quick and easy paper
and ink cartridge loading without having to open the printer lid.

The Color imageCLASS MF8580Cdw and imageCLASS MF4890dw laser multifunction
printers feature wireless^1 capabilities and convenient print, copy, fax and
scan functionality in a fully networkable device. The Color imageCLASS
MF8580Cdw printer features a new seven-line color LCD Display and delivers
high-quality color output. Additionally, the MF8580Cdw printer is equipped
with Secure Print to help ensure confidential documents end up in the right
hands. Users also have the ability to send scanned documents and forward
received faxes to a recipient through e-mail or file server. The MF4890dw
printer features a tiltable control panel and the Quiet Mode^2 feature helps
reduce operation noise for users who want quiet printing, copying and faxing
to avoid disturbing their colleagues.

Using the free downloadable Canon Mobile Printing app^3 for select imageCLASS
models and the Canon Easy-PhotoPrint application for wireless PIXMA models,^4
users ^ can conveniently print a variety of file types directly from many
mobile devices, including Apple and Android devices.

document scanner helps make it easy to manage and organize information. It can
handle a variety of items, such as receipts, business cards, bills and

converted into digital information that can be searched, stored, and shared.
In addition, when connected to the optional WU10 Wireless Adapter & Battery
Pack, this scanner works wirelessly not only with Windows and Mac, but also
with compatible mobile and tablet devices using the free downloadable Canon
