. August 17, 2010 . 0 Comments

Canon U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announced the addition of the new PIXMA MG8120 and PIXMA MG6120 Wireless1 Photo All-In-One (AIO) printers with a new, ground-breaking Intelligent Touch System improving the overall user experience with new technologies that have not been seen before in desktop printers. In addition to the new Intelligent Touch System, these PIXMA printers feature Full High Definition (HD) Movie Print2 for capturing memorable moments and other upgrades which will improve functionality and print quality. The addition of these printers further solidifies Canon’s commitment to providing award-winning, innovative products which limit the amount of time it takes to complete a project while maintaining the high quality users have come to expect from a Canon PIXMA product.

Designed with ease-of-use in mind, the new Intelligent Touch System is a game changer for overall printer usability. Consumers will find it easier and quicker than ever to navigate through menus and perform everyday tasks with back-lit touch sensitive buttons and a new light guidance system eliminating buttons not in use thus reducing opportunities for mistakes. In the early onset of touch technology, many products utilized resistive touch technology which relied on pressure being applied to the touch surface in order to get the desired result. The new Canon PIXMA MG8120 and MG6120 Wireless1 Photo AIO printers use the fast and responsive capacitive touch technology which picks up on electricity in the users body when a finger glides across the touch surface designed to provide for seamless navigation through menus and other desired commands. This same technology is utilized in many of today’s popular smartphones and when combined with the light guidance system, consumers will be surprised at how tasks can be accomplished quicker than ever before.

The new Full HD Movie Print provides consumers with a new alternative for preserving many of those memorable moments which in the past may have been rather challenging to catch. When using compatible HD Canon EOS and PowerShot Digital cameras, consumers can print individual frames of movies captured from scenes such as a child blowing out a candle on their first birthday cake or of a couple dancing on their wedding day. The days of missing those special moments can now be considered a thing of the past. With Full HD Movie Print consumers can be confident the scenes captured on a camera whether through still or movie capabilities, can be shared for years to come. 3

“Canon has always been at the forefront of providing consumers with products that are not only of high quality but easy to use with an innovative design and user-interface” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “The addition of the new Intelligent Touch System along with Full HD Movie Print will provide consumers with a unique user experience which further separates Canon from the competition”

The new Canon PIXMA MG8120 and PIXMA MG6120 Wireless Photo AIO printers will also feature the recently upgraded versions of Auto Photo Fix II, Easy-PhotoPrint EX and Easy-WebPrint EX to further enhance the printing experience. Auto Photo Fix II, which helps correct common photo errors, has been improved with enhanced light-source recognition and color-cast correction resulting in an increase in the overall image quality of printed images. With Easy-PhotoPrint EX images can now be searched for and used from Flickr providing further flexibility to consumers interested in printing high-quality photos, albums and stickers from computers without having to launch an internet browser.

Easy-WebPrint EX (Windows® Only) 4 upgrades include a new Fit-to-One-Page button for easy printing of text and images from websites. This button is especially useful for applications such as printing a restaurant’s various menus or multi-page articles. This new software will also provide for printing of multiple web page clips in a booklet format for easy handling and improved organization while images can be inserted into the print layouts allowing users to personalize their information even further.
