Canon delivers a remarkable 60" printer that fits the needs
of any professional printer looking to create captivating
images from capture to output.
This extraordinary 60"printer incorporates the new 12-color pigment
system with LUCIA™ ink plus the new L-COA controller and dual print
head system. Together, these technologies put the power to produce
vivid and breathtaking output right at your fingertips. Designed for
quality, reliability, and simplicity, the iPF9000 is the answer for any
professional looking to create high-quality prints.
The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9000 takes large-format color production to the next level. The 12-color pigment system with LUCIA inks
was designed to expand the spectrum of color for environments
from photography to design. The new L-COA controller intelligently
processes the data and directs the rapid printing process to the two
ultra high-density, high-quality, and high-speed print heads. The
included software suite makes the iPF9000 an innovative, out-ofthe-box printing solution that can be utilized by all types of digital
professionals. The imagePROGRAF iPF9000 printer is the result of
accumulated knowledge from Canon’s photography, imaging, and
printing technologies, all of which have been brought together to
provide the next generation of printers.
All that’s needed in one printer—
brilliant color, exceptional speed, and maximum productivity
LUCIA Pigment Inks
The imagePROGRAF iPF9000 features a newly developed,
12-color pigment ink system designed to expand the color
reproduction range by providing an extremely wide color gamut
for vivid accurate colors and fine precise details. The expanded
color gamut produces brilliant colors to more accurately match a
broader spectrum of colors. The two levels of gray provide a
perfectly neutral monotone output that surpasses expectations.
Also, the utilization of automatic switching between regular
black and matte black eliminates the wasted ink and time spent
swapping out ink tanks. The combinations of these 12 inks
produce exquisite results.
Along with the printer's unique ability to print in unprecedented quality and speed is the software suite that makes
the iPF9000 an ideal solution for professionals. Stunning
quality prints can be created right out of the box, with software that's just as innovative as the printer itself.
Digital Photo Print Pro – DPPP simplifies advanced
functions such as red-eye correction, dust removal, skin tone
improvement, and many other features.
Printer Driver 2006 – The imagePROGRAF printer driver
2006 works with both Windows® and Macintosh® operating
systems, offering exceptional, high-quality prints through
easy usability and accurate color. Features such as Nesting
and imageRUNNER® Scan-To-Print are included.
Engineered for speed and advanced image production, the
iPF9000 model boasts Canon’s new L-COA controller, a dual
print-head system with FINE technology, and a 40GB hard drive.
The L-COA print controller intelligently processes print data and
directs the two high-precision, high-density (30,720 nozzles)
print heads to lay down ink with extraordinary speed and
accuracy. It’s so smart, it’s simple. A single chip optimizes the
printer’s capabilities and accelerates processing while the dual
high-density one-inch print heads—each with 15,360 nozzles—
deliver smooth yet beautiful gradations on every print. The
onboard hard drive allows for print jobs to be saved for future
Print Plug-in for Photoshop® – This application was
designed to enable direct printing of 16-bit RGB images
directly from Adobe Photoshop 6/7/CS/CS2.
