Connect Directly to Santa's Workshop and Spread Holiday Cheer with the Canon U.S.A. North Pole PIXMA Application for Facebook®
MELVILLE, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Canon (News - Alert) U.S.A. Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today
announced the North Pole PIXMA app for Facebook, where parents can help
their children create a holiday wish to be sent directly to Santa's
workshop in the North Pole and watch it be printed on a Canon PIXMA
printer using cloud technology.
The Canon North Pole PIXMA app will provide a unique and interactive
experience allowing parents to help their children to write, draw or use
pre-selected images to create their holiday wish. Once the wish has been
customized, it is sent through the cloud to Santa's workshop, where
users will be shown a video of Santa receiving their wish printed on a
Canon PIXMA printer. Bringing smiles to children and parents alike, the
video features a cast of iconic holiday characters, including North Pole
workshop elves, the Abominable Snowman, Mrs. Claus and Santa.
"Through the North Pole PIXMA app, Canon enthusiasts can further tap
into the magic of the holidays and fully experience the ease of use of
Canon PIXMA printers," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president
and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon
U.S.A. "The new Canon PIXMA printers featuring cloud technology allow
for our consumers to print what matters most to them quickly and
conveniently to almost anywhere."
In addition to easily sending wishes to Santa, Canon PIXMA printers with
cloud technology give users the ability to print photos and documents
directly from popular cloud services including Facebook, Twitter®,
Flickr®, Dropbox®, Photobucket (News - Alert)® and EVERNOTE®.
