L-COA Image Processor
Print more in less time, at a lower cost:
It’s a Winning Formula.
Advanced Canon technologies are seamlessly integrated into a single, exceptionally
efficient production printing system
engineered to produce more high-quality
work, at a lower cost and in less time.
EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY WITH
UNPRECEDENTED SPEED
Two large, 1.07-inch high-density printheads eject tiny 4pl droplets of ink through
30,720 nozzles to produce high-quality
output up to 2400 x 1200 dpi with unprecedented speed. An innovative ink channel
configuration accelerates print efficiency by
distributing the eight colors of ink across
the two print-heads for better ink coverage
with each pass—and greater productivity—
without sacrificing image quality.
HIGH-CAPACITY 80GB HARD DRIVE
Canon’s imagePROGRAF S-Series printers
are equipped with an extra large 80GB hard
drive that improves productivity by relieving
the workload from an operator’s host computer while providing more capacity for data
storage and retrieval so multiple copies and
reprints can be made without resending job
files. Additional job management and security features supported by the hard drive
further enhance workgroup efficiency.
HIGH-SPEED IMAGE PROCESSING
Driving data to the printer and optimizing
output functions is Canon’s advanced
L-COA processor. This intelligent high-speed
processor manages the high volume of data
required for display quality large-format
graphics and directs the print engine with
speed and accuracy.
REDUCED INK CONSUMPTION
The Economy Color Mode produces highresolution 1200 x 1200 dpi output on
coated and uncoated media while reducing
ink consumption from 10% to 20%.
*Up to 42" wide
MINIMIZE MEDIA WASTE
The Roll Media Preview helps the operator
determine if media waste can be reduced
by automatically rotating a print image 90˚.
Without the need to confirm rotation settings or selecting the orientation, now users
can take advantage of media saving opportunities more easily.
DURABLE LUCIA PIGMENT INKS
Each of the S-Series printers feature
eight colors of LUCIA ink (Cyan, Photo
Cyan, Magenta, Photo Magenta, Yellow,
Black, Matte Black, and Gray) for a vibrant
color gamut with a depth and tone that’s
ideal for commercial graphics applications.
RELIABLE, WORRY FREE INK SYSTEMS
The large 330ml and 700ml ink tanks
available for the iPF9000S and iPF8000S
printers supply a sub-tank system so inks
can be replenished on-the-fly for longer,
uninterrupted print runs. The 130ml ink
tanks for the iPF6000S printer can be
replaced mid-print, without corrupting the
image or needing to resend the print file.
All models include an ink-level detection
system that helps ensure that ink is
always available.
BORDERLESS PRINTING*
Borderless printing reduces trimming and
offline finishing requirements. Output that’s
ready to use straight from the printer
means that more jobs can be completed
in less time.
LOW TOTAL COST OF OPERATION
Engineered for efficiency and reliability
imagePROGRAF S-Series printers draw only
190 watts of power during use. These lowmaintenance workhorses are equipped with
self-cleaning, long-life print-heads that
further reduce the total cost of operation.
Intelligent Quality Control
Canon knows that there’s little room for
error in the highly competitive production
printing marketplace. That’s why S-Series
printers come equipped with some of the
most advanced quality control functions
available in the industry.
BUILT-IN CALIBRATION FOR PRECISION,
CONTROL, AND SUPERIOR RESULTS
When it comes to producing accurate
reprints or managing output across multiple
printers, the S-Series’ built-in calibration
function helps to ensure that you’ll get
the results you expect.
Unlike the complex and time-consuming
color calibration normally required in
professional settings, a single process
enables these printers to be easily reset
back to the original, optimal factory settings
across all the printer’s media types in just
minutes. This easy-to-use feature helps
compensate for adverse environmental
conditions while providing a predictable
platform for color management and
consistent color reproduction.
KYUANOS: CANON’S NEXT-GENERATION
COLOR MATCHING PLATFORM
Once again at the forefront of the industry,
Canon has developed Kyuanos, a new highprecision color matching engine. This underlying technology enables new functionality,
such as Ambient Light Adjustment, and
supports richer color expression across a
wider spectrum of input and output formats.
MEDIA ROLL DETECTION SYSTEM
Avoid mismatching media types or running
out in the middle of a job. The media roll
detection system verifies the media type
loaded and tracks how much is remaining
on the roll. Media information is automatically printed (in text and bar code) directly
on the roll before it’s removed from the
printer. The next time the roll is loaded, the
system will read the bar code and apply
the information.
