High-Speed Printing: L-COA processor - Output an A1 size drawing in approximately 28 seconds*. When you need to keep projects moving forward and meet deadlines, this kind of speed is critical. Powering these incredible print speeds is Canon's L-COA (Large Format Printer COmmon Architecture) print controller, driving the imagePROGRAF print engine to lay down ink with exceptional speed and precision. This unique, high-speed processor enables the print system to process large volumes of data while optimizing output of complex high-colour GIS images and architectural renderings for maximum readability and colour accuracy. (*When printing in fast mode on plain paper. Includes paper-cutting time.)
Space-saving, Environmentally-conscious Design - This printer was designed to be space-saving and environmentally conscious. This printer carries a small footprint with fully front-accessible operation for flush wall installation that fits into almost any environment. And loading roll media is simple with built-in loading guide rails and an automatic roll feeder. Made with less plastic and reduced CO2 emissions, this model has earned ENERGY STAR qualification, and draws only 140 watts of power during use.
Productivity: Print Longer without Interruption Canon's unique sub-ink tank system means you can replace ink on-the-fly without stopping the printer. For long print runs, a high-capacity media basket comes standard with this printer. And its highly durable self-propelled dual rotary cutter allows for even faster printing of multi-page jobs.
Precision Printing: High-Density PF-04 Print Head - Engineered for speed and advanced image production, this printer boasts Canon's latest print-head technology to lay down ink with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The new PF-04 print head incorporates a new nozzle shape to reduce satellite ink, producing cleaner lines and text, and minimizing mist. The high-precision, high-density print head, with a total of 15,360 nozzles, lays down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets that produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output with fine lines that are accurate to Â±0.10% and as thin as 0.02mm.
Print Job Accounting Manager Keep track of costs and allocate consumable expenses to projects more easily with the Print Job Accounting function. This management tool allows you to track print jobs by user to calculate ink and media costs, and the number of pages printed.
Economy Print Mode - Reduce total ink consumption by utilizing the Economy Print Mode for producing draft prints on select media. This feature regulates the use of all inks to produce quick check plots while minimizing the cost per print.
Reactive Ink System - Ideal for technical - as well as office - applications and posters, Canon's breakthrough 5-color dye/pigment Reactive Ink technology utilizes four highly colourfast dye inks for producing bold, expressive colour, plus two channels of matte black ink for printing precise lines, smooth curves, and small text on technical and office documents. Now with a new magenta ink for richer, more vivid reds, this ink system is ideal for both GIS drawings and posters. These Canon inks provide superior adhesion to media, scratch and marker resistance, and ensure minimal "bleeding" between colours and text. Even small text printed on coloured backgrounds or on uncoated technical papers is crisp and legible.
HDI Driver - With the Canon HDI Driver for AutoCAD application, the driver creates a vector graphical representation of the printed data. Here, points are defined and a curved line is calculated mathematically in order to achieve precision. The HDI Driver creates a graphically accurate drawing of the printed data.
Canon Printer Driver - This WindowsÂ® and MacintoshÂ® drivers incorporate simplified page setup options, one-touch borderless printing, expanded colour settings, and much more into a printer driver that is intuitive and easy-to-operate while still giving even the most advanced users the tools needed to stay productive.
The Real Preview feature ensures users that the print setting and the layout on the roll paper is correct by providing real time preview, allowing users to change the print setting even after clicking on "print." The Free Layout feature enables nesting and custom layouts of images or files of nearly any type (available for both Windows and Mac driver).
The imageRUNNER Enlargement Copy feature built-in to the printer driver lets users transfer data from their Colour imageRUNNER device with Universal Send to the imagePROGRAF printer - all with the touch of a button - enabling users to easily create posters from hard copy documents.
PosterArtist Lite Canon's included PosterArtist Lite poster creation software gives users the ability to quickly and easily create professional large format prints. Users simply follow the program's four (4) easy steps to create posters that can be used in applications such as Office presentation, Trade shows, Retail Signage, and much, much more.
