Canon and EFI have announced that they will be working together to develop mobile printer ink technologies.

The firms' first steps will be to develop a print solution integrating EFI's Fiery-based imagePass and colourPass controllers into Canon's imageRunner advanced range of devices.

This will then allow consumers to use EFI's mobile print technology to produce documents on the imageRunner machines directly from their iPads, iPhones and iPod touch products.

Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager at Canon, said: "The combination of Canon’s imageRunner advance technology with EFI’s direct mobile print solution creates an easy, intuitive way for Apple device users to automatically discover a Fiery-based printer on their Wi-Fi network and print with the touch of one button.”

Recently, Laserfiche launched its iPhone app which allows people to easily upload pictures and photos onto printer ink devices.

The new technology also lets consumers copy, move, rename, print, email and delete documents from the palm of their hands.
