Canon Direct Print & Scan for Mobile App Now Available For Android Devices20 Jun, 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, created 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: http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.canon.cusa.meapmobile.android
