Canon imagePROGRAF Graphic Arts
Canon imagePROGRAF printer models for the graphic arts combine Canon’s innovations in inkjet printing technology with features that can help photography professionals and print service bureaus be more efficient and profitable in producing photographic prints, posters, signs, and displays. All Canon imagePROGRAF printers for photography and graphic arts use LUCIA™ aqueous pigment ink technology for durable, long-lasting images. These printers can produce images up to 2400 x 1200 dpi. The models for photography professionals use larger ink sets for a wider color gamut and tonal range in color and black-and-white photography. The graphics-arts printers use fewer inks and balance great image quality with the need to be fast, efficient and profitable in producing higher print volumes. View More
Each Canon imagePROGRAF printer features high-nozzle-density printheads manufactured with Canon’s FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) technology to eject ink faster and more accurately. The complex print data that directs the printhead to fire the ink droplets is handled by Canon’s uncommonly fast L-COA (Large-format printer Common Architecture) processor. The Canon wide format inkjet printer models for professional photography and art reproduction have 12 inks. These printers blend eight colors (cyan, yellow, photo magenta, photo cyan, red, green, and blue) with black, gray, and light gray inks. The system automatically switches from a photo black to a matte black ink for certain types of art and photo materials.
For faster printing, the Canon imagePROGRAF S-series of graphic-arts printers use 8 inks (cyan, magenta, photo cyan, photo magenta, black, gray, and matte black). The affordable Canon imagePROGRAF SE printers for retailers, businesses, and schools uses 6 inks (cyan, yellow, magenta, red, black, and matte black) for eye-catching posters and displays. Each Canon wide format inkjet printer for photographic or graphic arts printing comes with software specifically designed to make it faster to convert image files into quality prints. With the Print Plug-In for Adobe Photoshop, you can print directly from Photoshop. The Print Plug-In for Digital Photo Professional software lets users of Canon EOS cameras process raw image data from the camera directly to the Canon wide format inkjet printer.
