"Making History, Continuing Innovation"

From the moment the tip of a soldering iron came into contact with a syringe needle filled with ink more than 30 years ago, Canon has helped to establish the standards for image output. Ground-breaking advances continue to be made as PIXMA products produce superb print quality on both plain and photo papers.

Pursuing the highest quality input and output

The "X" in the PIXMA logotype design expresses the Canon approach. This "X" symbolizes the close link between input and output. As one of the world's only manufacturers with technical capabilities from the input through output stages, Canon will continue to deliver products that can print extremely precise input with some of the highest quality and outstanding speed.
The three types of DNA back the
PIXMA commitment


EOS Digital DNA:
Photographic Technology - This is the EOS Digital DNA from Canon's starting point: cameras.

imageRUNNER DNA:
Copier Technology - PIXMA image processing is conducted through the incorporation of advanced digital color-copier technology.

Inkjet Printing Technology DNA:
Print Head Technology - This is the Inkjet printing technology DNA. Canon's print head technology, which helps place Canon among the leaders of the worlds inkjet printer manufactures serves as the foundation of PIXMA.

FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering)
Power + Precision = Superior Quality

Canon engineers created what would become the core of Canon PIXMA inkjet printing - FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) Technology. The FINE print head ensures all the ink is pushed out in a single ejection for consistently great performance and amazing accuracy when printing pictures.

Dual Color Gamut Processing Technology
Even second generation copies are printed beautifully

This technology faithfully reproduces copies as they are seen with the naked eye. Compression precision in the compression area (area outside the range of the PIXMA printer's color reproduction capability) has been improved for even more faithful reproduction. Moreover, due to the Text and Image Separation Technology and the Hybrid System of dye color ink and pigment-based black ink, copies on plain papers look great.

Measuring Print Speed
In 2009, the International Standards Organization implemented a print standard for inkjet printer document print speeds which is a universal measure utilizing three types of standardized test documents in "real world" conditions - one, four page Excel document, one - four page Word document and one-four page PDF document. This new standard allows customers to better understand printer speed claims, helping them to select the best product to fit their needs.
