Introducing the 60" iPF9400,
44" iPF8400, and 24" iPF6450/6400
large-format printers.
This expanded line-up is ideal for helping dedicated artisans and
demanding graphic professionals achieve extraordinary results.
For those who expect more from a largeformat printing system, Canon’s new lineup of 12-color, high-speed, high-resolution
solutions are optimized to produce exquisite
images for the Fine Art, Photography, and
Proofing markets.
Color consistency across all these
new printers is achieved with a color
management system that includes a new
multi-sensor, an optional Spectrophotometer
unit for the iPF6450 printer, and a color
imagePROGRAF iPF9400: This 60"-wide powerhouse
system prints incredible eye-popping images, is ideal for large
Giclée prints, can print up to 60" borderless, and includes a
media take-up roll that supports long print runs.
imagePROGRAF iPF8400: This highly versatile large-format
printing system delivers high-quality photo and fine art
printing on media up to 44" wide. Enhancements provide
exceptional quality with smooth gradations and prints at
faster print speeds than the previous model.*
imagePROGRAF iPF6450/6400: These 12-color, 24"-wide
solutions are optimal for proofing, photography, and fine art
printing. The iPF6450 printer, with a built-in 250GB hard
drive, has the option to add an onboard Spectrophotometer
(iPF6450 only), for advanced color management, including
the ability to obtain color consistency across multiple iPFX400
Series printers.

12-Color luCia eX iNK set
Canon’s LUCIA EX ink technology offers sophisticated
photographic expression with its brilliant range of
vibrant colors, smooth gradations, and incredibly fine
details. This ink set also has better scratch resistance
and reduced bronzing than previous ink.

TANK SYSTEM
The 24" printers now have the capability to utilize
300ml ink tanks, which more than double the
capacity of the standard 130ml ink tanks. The 44"
and 60" printers have an option for 330ml and 700ml
sizes! The sub-ink tank system now available on these
new printers gives the user the ability to change tanks
without stopping the print run.

A new feature has been added that can be accessed
via the popular Adobe® Photoshop ® program. This
new Plug-in gives users the ability to easily create

A new multi-sensor has been incorporated into these
iPF models for improved density detection accuracy
over the previous printers.* The new sensor, along
with the included software, will help achieve color
consistency across all these new iPF 12-color models.

All imagePROGRAF printers are engineered with speed
in mind. While improving image quality, the speed of
all the new iPF 12-color printers has been increased,
providing a shorter print time and increasing production
while maintaining exceptional print quality.

Color Quality
Canon’s LUCIA EX ink set, available across the new
24", 44", and 60" models, is designed for dramatic
photographic expression as well as detailed color
reproduction for exacting proofing applications. This
ink offers a brilliant range of vibrant colors, smooth
gradients, and incredibly fine details. This specially
formulated ink also offers better scratch resistance,
superb black reproduction, and exceptional color
stability compared to its predecessor.
Increased image manipulation options have been added
to the included software, giving users the ability to be
even more creative in their final output. New Tint and
Tone controls over the four monochromatic shades
allow users to create even more expressive blacks
with smoother gradations, especially in dark areas.
For discriminating photographers who realize that their
carefully crafted input is only a part of the final output,
Canon supplies them with seamless Input-to-Output
solutions. The included Print Plug-ins for Adobe
Photoshop and Digital Photo Professional enable
16-bit image processing to dramatically improve
the final output. Canon’s two advanced, one-inch
print-heads output a superfine 4pl ink droplet at up
to a full 2400 x 1200 dpi resolution to help reproduce
details with superior accuracy and clarity.

New Adjustment Settings
New controls have been added to the Printer Driver and
the Print Plug-in for Photoshop to give users increased
control over their output. The new Tone control in the
monochrome photo mode includes adjustments for
the following:
Soft Tone
Middle Tone
• Medium Hard Tone
• Hard Tone
• Strong Hard Tone
•
•
A preview is available
showing how the image
is being changed.
Tint control has been added to the Print Plug-in for
Photoshop. This new option gives users the ability to
affect the white space on an image to improve gloss
control of a black-and-white image.
Enhanced Processing Speeds
The printing process for printing on glossy and
proofing paper is now optimized for faster output while
maintaining high print quality. In the Highest quality
mode, the printing speed has been approximately
doubled compared with that of previous models,
and approximately 10% faster in other modes.

Color Accuracy
Optional Spectrophotometer for iPF6450
Color Accuracy refers to a device’s ability to not only
reproduce colors the same way every time, but also
ensure that the color’s output is, in fact, the color
that’s required in the image. The new imagePROGRAF
12-color printers include an upgraded, built-in multisensor designed to offer even more precise calibration
and color matching. Automatic color calibration is
finished quickly after a few simple steps on the printer’s
operation panel. A single color calibration performed
with one type of media can be applied to media in all
printing modes.
As an optional add-on to the iPF6450 printer, the
SU-21 spectrophotometer is essential for anyone
who’s looking for efficiency in the proofing industry.
This easy-to-install solution attaches onto the front
of the iPF6450 printer and provides the foundation
for an advanced color management system.
The SU-21 spectrophotometer device includes:
•
fully automated mobile carriage for the sensor,
A
allowing for media of different thicknesses to be
loaded and used with this device.
•
A single-piece backing plate that’s unique to
Canon’s device and has a black and a white
side on it.
•
User-switchable UV blocking filter that can be
switched on and off according to paper type; no
need to purchase individual sensors for each stock.
•
Scan speed of 10 inches per second.
•
he ability to generate color calibration charts is
T
possible for third-party-media, allowing users
to expand their workflow options.
•
Conforms to 2010 XRGA measurement standard.
Color Consistency
Color Consistency is a device’s ability to produce and
reproduce colors without a shift or change in tone,
hue, or density. An image printed on a device that’s
producing colors consistently will always look the
same any time that image is printed on that device on
the same media in the same mode. Canon includes
the multi-sensor to help ensure color accuracy and
consistency for a single printer when more than one
is being used in a printing environment.
Color Calibration Management Console
The Color Calibration Management Console (CCMC)
allows for centralized management of networked
printers in a system from one easy-to-use software
tool. This unique feature enables color calibration
targets created using the iPF6450 printer with the
optional SU-21 spectrophotometer that can be
linked across the entire line of new 12-color
imagePROGRAF devices. A printer’s administrator
can monitor and manage each printer from a remote
location. Linking color calibration targets among
multiple printers allows color calibration for custom
media to be performed on printers not equipped
with a SU-21 spectrophotometer unit.
