ARCHIVAL LUCIA INKS
•Portrait-quality
Canon’s specially formulated LUCIA pigment
inks have outstanding archival characteristics.
By coating each pigment particle with a
special polymer compound, Canon has
increased the ink’s resistance to fading and
scratching. These specially formulated inks
also improve image quality by reducing
graininess and bronzing—so prints look
great from every angle.

ENGINEERED FOR EXCELLENCE
The high-speed L-COA controller channels
output through two one-inch print-heads,
each with 2,560 nozzles per color for a total
of 30,720 nozzles. Superfine 4pl ink droplets
and print resolutions of up to 2400 x 1200 dpi
produce the delicate color gradation and the
high-definition expression required by fine art
applications and professional photographers.
SYSTEM CALIBRATION—SIMPLIFIED
Unlike the complex and time-consuming
calibration normally required in professional
settings, Canon offers a simplified process
that enables easy recalibration back to the
original, optimal factory settings across all
the printers’ media types.

FIVE-COLOR DYE/PIGMENT REACTIVE INK
TECHNOLOGY
Canon’s Reactive Ink technology utilizes four
highly colorfast dye inks—Cyan, Magenta,
Yellow, and Black—plus two channels of
pigment-based Matte Black. The inks are
specially formulated to improve both durability and clarity of the image. The Matte Black
ink is chemically engineered to react with the
Cyan ink to prevent “bleeding” at the border
between color and black output. This produces
clearer text and sharper lines—especially
when printing fine lines and small text fonts on
colored backgrounds. The ink’s chemistry also
improves adhesion to the media so images are
more durable than when printed with conventional inks.
TWO MATTE BLACK INK CHANNELS
Though these printers utilize five colors of ink,
Canon has dedicated a sixth ink channel to
Matte Black ink. This increases the rate at which
most text and line drawings can be output.
LOW TOTAL COST OF OPERATION
Canon’s imagePROGRAF printers are built for
low-cost operation. The Economy Print Mode
significantly reduces ink consumption while the
long-life print-heads deliver maximum reliability
to help keep maintenance costs down.
More Options –
More Productivity
Canon now offers even more hardware and
software options to this line of printers,
providing single-solution workflows to help
maximize productivity, increase efficiency,
and open new opportunities.
DUAL MEDIA ROLLS (iPF820 only)
Equipped with dual media rolls, the iPF820
printer eliminates the cause of many bottlenecks in busy printing environments. It can
automatically switch between different sizes
and types of media or print on the same
media to enable fast, consecutive printing
of jobs submitted by multiple users.
HIGH-CAPACITY STACKER
Add an optional high-capacity 36” or 44”
plain paper stacker for even greater efficiency. This stacker provides a sturdy flat
surface to off-load plain paper prints. It also
automatically stacks documents of mixed
output sizes up to 300 sheets, thereby
reducing–or even eliminating–operator
handling.
HIGH-SPEED, HIGH-RESOLUTION
LARGE-FORMAT SCANNING
Do you need to archive, reproduce, or
distribute large-format documents and
presentations from hard-copy originals?
Add a compatible high-speed, high-quality
large-format scanner to your imagePROGRAF
printer to create a complete multifunction,
scan-to-copy solution.
CAD|sTATION PS+
Available with the iPF820/810 PRO models,
this True Adobe PostScript® color RIP with
advanced job management and accounting
functionality has a client/server architecture
with the ability to set up an unlimited number of clients. CAD STATION PS+ simplifies
batch printing procedures, allows for faster job
throughput and includes advanced accounting

Alliance Partners
Canon’s Alliance Program for large-format
imagePROGRAF products was created to
identify, develop, and market software solutions that not only add value to Canon’s
products, but also address customer and
industry-specific needs in the marketplace.
A Canon Alliance Partner is a company that
has applied to be in the program and was
approved by Canon. The Alliance Program
provides a process in which the partner can
conduct compatibility testing with the products in our imagePROGRAF line, ensuring that
the product is compatible and the company’s
software solution enhances the value of the
imagePROGRAF printer. Although we are
highlighting the members of the Alliance
Partner Program, there are a number of
other vendors with customized solutions for
the imagePROGRAF line. Please check the
company’s Web site for more detailed compatibility information.
With a full line of Canon large-format printers
designed to be incorporated into a variety of
market segments, customers are assured
the best software to suit their needs. These
software solutions can be integrated into
a range of market segments, such as the
Proofing/Prepress, Photographic, CAD/GIS,
Poster/Signage, and Scan/Copy to address
customer-specific needs. Cost-tracking solutions are also available for those who would
like to monitor specific expenses associated
with making production pieces by providing
detailed reports of the information. These
software RIPs will add functionality to the
imagePROGRAF devices that are not available
in the native print driver. For example, they
will accept a broader range of file formats and
add features such as tiling, queue management, the ability to create ICC profiles, and
ink tracking capabilities. With this added
functionality, the imagePROGRAF printer
becomes a complete workflow solution.
Canon’s imagePROGRAF printers are commonly used for specific targeted applications
in the following markets. The partners selected
to work with Canon are leaders in some or all
of the markets shown in the chart below:
