Canon U.S.A. Announces Mobile Scanning App for Home and Office Users
MELVILLE, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Canon (News - Alert) U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today
announced its Canon Mobile Scanning for Business App for iPhone®
and iPad®, adding mobile scan workflow capability to Canon's
already extensive support for mobile office users and consumers. Canon
Mobile Scanning for Business enables users in homes and offices to scan
jobs from a supported imageCLASS multifunction printer (MFP) directly
into their compatible iPhone (News - Alert) or iPad device to support a user's
portability, distribution or backup needs.
The Canon Mobile Scanning for Business app is compatible with select
Canon imageCLASS desktop laser MFPs, including the
MF4770n/MF4880dw/MF4890dw, MF5950dw/MF5960dn, MF6160dw/MF6180dw,
MF8280Cw/MF8580Cdw and D1320/D1350/D1370 MFPs.1 Users can
initiate scans in JPEG (individual files for each page) or PDF form (one
multi-page file) directly through the app's user-friendly interface.
"Today's mobile workers need real-time fingertip access to their
documents, including those originating in hard copy form," said Sam
Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging
Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. "The new Canon Mobile Scanning for
Business App gives mobile users more flexibility and control to help
manage their documents on the go."
The Canon Mobile Scanning for Business App features the following tools:
Intuitive MFP Communication
The app can search for and identify compatible Canon MFPs within a
wireless broadcast range - and automatically save these devices for
future use. If the Canon MFP cannot be found within a wireless broadcast
range, users can manually enter the IP address of the compatible Canon
device to list it as one of their available scan devices. Once
discovered, users can easily toggle between compatible devices to
initiate scan jobs from multiple MFPs.
Wide Range of Compatibility Aims to Provide a Satisfying End-User
The app supports devices running iOS 5.1 or later and is available for
the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, the New iPad (4th
Generation), iPad (3rd Generation), iPad 2, the original iPad
and the iPad Mini.
Opportunity to Choose Scan Settings Helps Optimize Workflow
A variety of built-in scanning options empower users to enhance control
and performance. Users can tailor scan resolution, paper size, file
fomat, color mode and two-sided (duplex)2 scanning directly
from the app. Additionally, users can instruct the app to initiate scan
jobs from either the platen glass or via the auto document feeder.
Scanned File Distribution Capability
Once an original is scanned from a compatible MFP, users can opt to save
the file to built-in local application storage (Camera Roll, My
Documents) for later retrieval, attach it to a pre-set email address for
distribution to colleagues, open it into another iOS application via the
OpenIn feature for further management or open it into the Canon Mobile
Printing app to quickly print the file through a compatible MFP (users
who have not previously downloaded the free Canon Mobile Printing
application for iOS will be automatically directed to the App StoreSM.
Extensive Device Menu
Users can access a built-in device menu for each discovered MFP that
provides device status, model name, IP address and MAC Address
information, as well as direct links to support information and also the
device's remote user interface (web portal), which gives the user even
greater accessibility and capability to manage the equipment.
App support is expected to expand to include select imageRUNNER and
imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices in the near future. For product
