Canon Unveils A New Photo Printer And Puts The Fun Into Printing with New Mobile App That Embeds Hidden Messages in Photos

    Manila, Philippines – Canon’s latest PIXMA all-in-one printer is accompanied by a new mobile app that is set to change the way we share photos forever. Beyond the obvious good looks, the new Message in Print app reinvents the way we remember favorite moments of friends and family, by embedding hidden messages inside photos for unexpected surprises.

    PIXMA TS5170 Photo All-in-One: This space-saving all-rounder delivers style and functionality at an affordable price. A 2.5” LCD on an adjustable tilt panel makes it easy to operate and view menu options, while automatic duplex engine and 2-way paper feeding ensures ease-of operation, whether it is the printing of high quality photos, school projects, and just scanning documents.

    Change the Way You See Printed Photos
    Imagine a birthday greeting that pops out from a photo of a child blowing out birthday candles, or a postcard of a concert jumping to a video of the actual performance. The new Message in Print app makes these all possible. The app allows the creation of personalized messages with animations, or links to web videos that can be embedded in any photo. All that is needed is to view the photo via the app to unlock the surprise!

    Stay Always-Connected and Receive Status Alerts
    With Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology, also commonly known as Bluetooth 4.0, users can interact with their printers on a level that was never possible before. With BLE, it is now possible to stay always-connected to PIXMA printers via the Canon Print Inkjet/SELPHY app . Users can enjoy easy wireless printer setup, and receive status alerts such as low-ink notifications or when there is no paper in the tray – simply by being within Bluetooth discoverable range of the printer.

    Load Paper in Different Directions
    The ability to load paper to be printed in two directions (rear tray and cassette tray) allows users to switch easily between two different paper types, such as plain paper and glossy photo paper. Those that do need to print a large number of documents can even fill both trays with A4 plain paper for a combined paper capacity of up to 200 sheets.

    Automatic Two-Sided Printing
    The automatic two-sided printing function saves consumers both time and money by automatically printing on both sides of paper without the need to reverse a previously printed stack.

    Document Removal Reminder
    The forgetful will find the Document Removal Reminder function incredibly helpful. When a document is left on the scanner glass after a scan or copy, a notification on the LCD panel together with an audio alert prompts the user to remove their original document left on the scanner platen.

    Copy IDs and Business Cards Easily
    The ID Card Copying function allows double-sided ID cards to be scanned onto a single printout - while retaining the original card size.
