MELVILLE, N.Y. -- June 10, 2013

In response to the increase of mobile devices in the workforce and the demand
for print and scan capability from device users, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader
in digital imaging solutions, today announced the availability of the Canon
Direct Print and Scan for Mobile V2.0 mobile client app for Android™ devices
on Google Play™ and the Amazon Appstore™. The app provides Android users with
a mobile print and scan solution that easily integrates their Android devices
with MEAP (multifunction embedded application platform) -enabled Canon
imageRUNNER ADVANCE and imageRUNNER multifunction products (MFP).

In addition to providing the ability to print from and scan to Android
devices, the Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile V2.0 application
incorporates a variety of new features including:

  *Authentication and tracking – by integrating with Canon MFP authentication
    methods, the app allows tracking and monitoring of users’ mobile printing
    activity.
  *Web page printing – provides users the ability to print directly from a
    website to a compatible MEAP-enabled Canon MFP. (The app utilizes a
    built-in web browser that is able to render a web page within the app and
    output the previewed page to the MFP.)
  *Wireless Network Connection Automation – allows automated connectivity to
    wireless local area networks directly from the user’s mobile device.
    (System owners can permit users to seamlessly transition from the network
    currently activated on the user’s device to the network on which a nearby
    Canon MFP resides. For added security, an automated password can be
    configured and embedded into the application eliminating the need for
    users to individually enter a confidential company code in order to access
    the network supporting the MFP.)^2

Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile V2.0, coupled with a compatible Canon
imageRUNNER ADVANCE or imageRUNNER MFP, expands printing and scanning
opportunities for mobile users. Customers will now be able to easily print
from and scan to Android devices, and remotely manage Canon MFP print
finishing features and scan options (e.g., select paper sizes, select scan
resolution, enable duplex printing, choose color or black-and-white output,
select number of prints, collate and more).

The Canon Direct Print and Scan for Mobile V2.0 application is supported by
the combined functionality of two separate applications: 1) a MEAP application
that runs on a compatible Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE or imageRUNNER MFP and 2)
a mobile client app that resides on Android devices.

The mobile client app is available as a free download on:

Google Play:

Amazon Appstore:
