From professional photographers to graphic designers, they openly share what they need and want in a printer, like stunning, black-and-white prints with deep blacks, detailed gradations, and a wide color gamut that accurately reproduces even the most difficult colors.
The Canon imagePROGRAF 60" PRO-6100, 44" PRO-4100, and 24" PRO-2100 professional large-format printers offer an 11-Color plus Chroma Optimizer ink system that does it all. Enhanced to include intelligent technology for advanced media handling, these are the best large format printers Canon has ever engineered, distinguished by a bold red line.
The LUCIA PRO 11-Color plus Chroma Optimizer ink system can satisfy the demands of the most critical photographer or graphic artist. A dense droplet placement provides a broad color gamut and the Chroma Optimizer provides improved gloss uniformity for superb color and anti-bronzing.
Incredibly accurate color reproduction, outstanding image clarity, and enhanced detail in darker areas help distinguish each print. On fine art papers, deep black density renders even the nest shadow detail for a print that becomes a work of art.
The microencapsulated LUCIA PRO ink set is tightly arranged on the paper with each print head pass— creating a wide color gamut. The Blue and Magenta inks have been formulated to render brilliant color when printing vibrant landscapes while the Black inks can capture the nest detail in the darkest areas of your images, bringing them to light.
At the heart of the imagePROGRAF PRO Series printers is a 1.28"-wide print head with 18,432 nozzles. Using one print head as opposed to two, the PRO Series is able to achieve faster print speeds.
Ink ejection conditions are precisely checked with sensors, so if a clog is detected, another nozzle automatically provides backup. In addition to helping prevent wasted prints due to clogging, this also helps reduce the frequency of nozzle cleaning required.
On other brands of printers, switching from Matte Black to Photo Black consumes a significant amount of ink and time. The PRO Series is designed to work seamlessly when changing paper types. Matte Black and Photo Black inks have their own dedicated nozzles, so no switching is necessary. You can print on fine art paper then glossy paper with no worries, no changes, and no waste.
All PRO Series devices include a built-in multi-sensor to help ensure color consistency, not only from one print to the next, but also from one PRO Series device to another. With the included Device Management Console Software, calibrate and monitor up to 50 PRO Series devices with ease on both Canon and non-Canon media, helping to ensure highly consistent color.
Producing the correct color is paramount when printing high- quality, archival work. The built-in Color Calibration function uses a multi-sensor to read color density and automatically calibrate the printer, so that the last print can look as stunning as the first.
The Multifunction Roll System — standard with the PRO-6100 and optional for the PRO-4100/PRO-2100 printers — can be used in two different ways. First, you can load a second roll of a different media type and size at the same time, allowing automatic switching from matte to gloss paper without interrupting your workflow. Or second, you can configure the printer as a bi-directional Take-up unit.
This high-precision control engine performs the high-speed processing of massive amounts of image data, generates the printing data, and controls the optimal ink layout for the purpose of achieving high-resolution prints.
The unibody structure was engineered to provide a strong platform for stable print head scanning, resulting in precise ink droplet placement. Now it's easier to achieve the perfect combination of speed and high-quality printing.
Available in 160 ml, 330 ml, and 700 ml ink tanks, you’re now given the flexibility to purchase ink based on your printing needs. You can purchase 700 ml Photo Black ink tanks for all those monochrome images and 160 ml Magenta ink tanks for the occasional sunset image. This gives you the power to purchase ink based on the color frequency at which images are printed.
The Sub-Ink Tank System works to remove all the ink in the tank before having to replace it, helping to eliminate any wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced on the y, without stopping the printer. This is extremely useful during long print jobs.
