WHAT’S NEW
From 24” to 60”, the Canon imagePROGRAF iPFx400S Series of printers shares the same
technology, making it a truly uniform solution for large-format production printing.
FLEET MANAGEMENT
With the introduction of the SU-21 Spectrophotometer
and the Color Calibration Management Console
to the imagePROGRAF S Series printers, you can
achieve color management and control from a
centralized location, streamlining your workflow
like never before. Create calibration files using
the SU-21 Spectrophotometer and share them
across a fleet of iPFx400S Series printers for
unbelievable control.
MULTI-SENSOR
The enhanced multi-sensor featured in the
iPFx400S Series of printers helps improve density
detection accuracy as compared to the previous
line of iPF S Series printers. Along with the included
software solutions, the new multi-sensor helps
achieve color consistency across all the new
iPF 8-color models.
SU-21 SPECTROPHOTOMETER
The optional SU-21 Spectrophotometer for the
iPF6400S printer provides the foundation for
advanced color management and remarkable
color consistency.
SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS
Introducing three exciting software solutions:
• Color Calibration Management Console
helps centralize and maintain an efficient color
management system;
• An enhanced Print Plug-in for Adobe®
Photoshop®, which hosts a Gallery Wrap
Feature for creating canvas wraps; and,
• Direct Print & Share, Canon's cloud-based
portal solution for sharing files.
LARGE-CAPACITY INK TANKS WITH
A SUB-INK TANK SYSTEM
The 24” iPF6400S printer now has the capability
to utilize 300ml ink tanks, which is more than
double the capacity of the standard 130ml ink
tanks. The 44” iPF8400S and 60” iPF9400S
printers have an option for 330ml and 700ml
tanks! The sub-ink tank system, available for the
first time on a 24” 8-color printer, gives the user
the ability to change ink tanks on the fly, without
stopping the print run.

CENTRALIZED COLOR MANAGEMENT IN
MULTIPRINTER PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENTS
With the addition of the iPF8400S and
iPF6400S printers to the iPF9400S printer, the
imagePROGRAF iPFx400S Series allows for color
management and consistency, without sacrificing
speed. For the first time on an S Series printer,
you have the ability to create custom color profiles
using the iPF6400S printer with the optional
SU-21 Spectrophotometer, and these profiles
can be shared across any other iPFx400S Series
printer in your fleet. These new features help
you stabilize color accuracy across the entire
workflow, while providing consistency across
all iPFx400S Series devices to help ensure the
correct print comes out every time.
Canon provides a variety of features designed
specifically to improve access, administration,
and operation of a fleet of printers. These
features include:
• Color Calibration Management Console
• Optional SU-21 Spectrophotometer
Execute right from your own desk.

The SU-21 Spectrophotometer device includes:
• A fully automated mobile carriage for the sensor,
allowing for media of different thicknesses to be
loaded and used with the device.
• A single-piece, user-switchable backing plate
that contains both white and black backings,
unique to Canon’s solution.
• User-switchable UV blocking filter that can
be switched on or off according to paper type,
eliminating the need to purchase individual
sensors for each stock.
• Scan speed of up to 10 inches per second.
• Built-in Multi-Sensor

OPTIONAL SU-21 SPECTROPHOTOMETER
FOR iPF6400S PRINTER
This easily installable solution attaches directly
onto the front of the iPF6400S printer and
provides the foundation for advanced color
management across all iPFX400S Series printers.
• The ability to generate color calibration charts
using non Canon branded media—allowing
users to expand their workflow options.
COLOR CALIBRATION MANAGEMENT CONSOLE
The Color Calibration Management Console
(CCMC) allows for centralized management of all
networked iPFx400S Series printers in a single
system, from one easy-to-use software tool. This
unique feature enables color calibration targets
created using the iPF6400S printer with the
optional SU-21 Spectrophotometer to be linked
across the entire line of 8-color imagePROGRAF
iPF printers in your fleet. The administrator can
then monitor and manage each printer from a
remote location, from almost anywhere in the
world!* Linking color calibration targets among
multiple printers allows for color calibration of
custom media to be performed on any iPFx400S
Series printer, whether or not it’s equipped with
an SU-21 Spectrophotometer.
BUILT-IN MULTI-SENSOR
Designed to support precise calibration and color
matching, the multi-sensor uses a three-color
LED and an enhanced condenser lens. The sensor
enables accurate recalibration of the device.

BORDERLESS PRINTING
All iPFx400S Series printers feature true
borderless printing, helping to reduce the
requirements needed for trimming and off-line
finishing. This also makes the iPF9400S the
only 60” large-format printer to accommodate
true 60” borderless printing.
FAST AND ECONOMY PRINT MODES
Canon’s Fast Print mode helps you minimize your
per-print cost by producing 1200 x 1200 dpi output
while reducing total ink consumption by 10% to
20%.** And for quick check plots, utilize the Fast
Print mode with the Economy Printing option to
help reduce total ink consumption by up to 50%**
on select media!
HIGH-CAPACITY INK SYSTEM WITH SUB-INK TANKS
The iPFx400S Series printers feature a large ink
tank capacity of 130ml or 300ml for the iPF6400S
printer and 330ml or 700ml for the iPF8400S
and iPF9400S printers. The sub-ink tank system
enables ink tanks to be replaced on the fly,
without stopping the printer.
**When compared to Standard mode.
