Canon imagePROGRAF iPF685 Brochure
Simplify your workflow with the 36”
imagePROGRAF iPF785/iPF780 and
24” iPF685/iPF680 Large-Format Printers
The newest additions to Canon’s technical document
large-format printer line-up.
These printers aim to boost productivity
while staying true to some of their great
legacy features. Faster draft printing,
increased ink tank sizes, a new magenta
ink, and software enhancements
help make printing easier and more
convenient than ever before, while the
sub-ink-tank system, large on-board
hard drive,* and user-friendly assembly
all carry over to help ensure the printer
operates seamlessly into your workflow.
• Print speeds are capable of producing a 24” x 36” Arch
D-sized print in approximately 21 seconds in Economy Mode!▲
• In addition to the 130 ml ink tanks, 300 ml ink tanks are
compatible with these solutions to help lower ink costs
per print. Users also have the option to mix and match ink
tank sizes.
• A newly formulated Magenta ink helps improve the clarity
and vibrancy of red fine lines, text, and images.
• Allows for ink tanks to be changed on the fly, without
interrupting the print job.
• Canon workflow solutions feature familiar and new
favorites, such as a new mobile printing app,▲▲ Direct
Print & Share, Status Monitor, Media Configuration Tool,
Print Plug-in for Microsoft® Office, and more!

iPF785/780 models only.
App can be downloaded from iTunes ®.
The iPF785/780 and iPF685/680 printers offer speeds
that have never been seen before on previous Canon
imagePROGRAF large-format printer models. In their
fastest mode (Economy Mode), the 36” iPF785/780
printers are capable of reproducing 24” x 36” Arch
D-sized prints in approximately 21 seconds! The 24”
iPF685/680 printers can reproduce 24” x 36” Arch
D-sized prints in approximately 25 seconds!
A newly formulated Magenta ink helps improve the
clarity and vibrancy of red fine lines, text, and images
in many technical and poster prints. The color gamut
has also increased in the orange to red areas when
compared to previous models. From a productivity
perspective, the printers now support ink tank sizes
of 300 ml to help lower the cost per print. The included
sub-ink-tank system allows for users to use all the ink
that’s available in a tank before replacement is needed.
It also allows for on-the-fly swapping of ink tanks,
should one run out during the middle of a print job.
All four models include the flat stacker/basket,
previously seen on only the iPF76x Series models.
This feature provides the capability to neatly stack
up to twenty 24” x 36” plain paper prints and can
be enabled or disabled based on user preference.
* Available at the App Store. Compatible with iPad ® 2 or later, running iOS 6.1
or later. Data charges may apply. Printed output will be the same size as
original file. Mobile device and large-format printer must utilize the same
network. Printer must be connected to the same router that the mobile
device is connected to via wireless capability. Wireless performance
may vary based on terrain and distance between the printer and wireless
network clients. In order to print from imagePROGRAF Print Utility, user
must open his/her PDF file in another, supported iPad app. Then, the user
would select “Open In” and choose the Print Utility app.
Also included on the iPF785 and iPF685 models is a
320 GB hard drive, allowing for the storage of up to 500
print jobs, the creation of individual user mail boxes,
and improved print processing while falling under U.S.
Department of Defense requirements (DoD 5220.22-M).
Enhancements to the line-up of imagePROGRAF
software solutions will help improve printing workflow
and management.
imagePROGRAF Print Utility*
For the first time, a mobile app has been made
available for imagePROGRAF large-format printers.
This iOS-based app allows users to print PDF files
from their iPad®.
Direct Print & Share 2.0**
Canon’s cloud-based portal solution has been
updated to support additional WebDAV-compliant
cloud servers, along with HP-GL/2 data to allow for
the printing of JPG, TIFF, PDF, and HP-GL/2 files from
almost anywhere in the world! Also, a new “shortcut
print” button has been added. With this additional
functionality, hot folders can be created and set
up on your desktop. You can drag and drop your files
into the folders and your jobs will begin printing
automatically! Multiple folders can be set up for
shortcut printing, each with their own print settings
for custom printing applications!
Canon’s optional, added-value poster-creation software
has been upgraded for use with Direct Print & Share.
Various software improvements with variable data
printing and file structure have also been made for
easier use.
Status Monitor
This software can be used with all imagePROGRAF
devices and has been updated to include an “ink
purchase notification” function. This notifies users
when their ink supply is low and a purchase is needed.
** Your server must be compatible with a WebDAV-enabled cloud account,
including, but not limited to, Google, Carbonite, or Rackspace to take advantage
of the cloud functionality. Storage capacity, and any pricing thereof, is based
on the third-party cloud provider’s current offering, at its sole discretion. Your
cloud account is subject to the third-party cloud provider’s terms and conditions.
