Canon Press Release

Canon U.S.A. Introduces Five Large-Format Printers Offering Precise Color Management And Excellent Image Quality

LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., September 12, 2012 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging and office solutions, today unveiled five imagePROGRAF large-format printers - the iPF9400, iPF9400S, iPF8400, iPF6450 and iPF6400 - that deliver superb color quality, color consistency and output speeds. Designed for use by photographers, artisans, proofers and print for pay users, the imagePROGRAF models help complete the lineup of professional imaging products offered by Canon. With a variety of enhancements made to both quality and speed, users will experience increased productivity - while benefitting from the built-in tools which make managing small and large printing fleets convenient and more cost-effective.

“Canon has developed a unique and innovative solution to provide color consistency across the entire series of new imagePROGRAF models to meet the needs of photography and graphics professionals,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “The introduction of this new line of imagePROGRAF printers solidifies Canon’s commitment to providing imaging professionals with the necessary tools to showcase their work.”

The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9400 (12-color, 60-inch), iPF8400 (12-color, 44-inch), iPF6450/6400 (12-color, 24-inch) and iPF9400S (8-color, 60-inch) printers offer improved color stability designed for precise, ultra high-quality print performance with increased speed and productivity. All of these models utilize Canon’s LUCIA EX pigment ink set, an enhanced multi-sensor and advanced printing technologies specifically developed to produce prints with an enhanced color range and improved durability. The imagePROGRAF iPF9400S and iPF9400 printers can now handle 60-inch borderless printing and now have a more affordable price when compared to previous models as well.

Each of the imagePROGRAF models has been upgraded in comparison to previous generations by integrating several new features and functionalities to help customers achieve the ultimate in color consistency. These tools include:

Multi-Sensor: A new, enhanced multi-sensor has been incorporated for improved density accuracy and stability over previous models. The sensor, along with the included software, helps to achieve color consistency across all new imagePROGRAF 12-color models.

Color Calibration Management Console: Using the calibration function equipped in the new line of imagePROGRAF devices, it is possible to execute and monitor the calibration status of multiple printers on a network from one PC.

Media Configuration Tool: This software allows the user to update and customize the printer and drivers with new Canon and custom media information.
Adding to the versatility of the imagePROGRAF printers is a sub-ink tank system which minimizes waste. The ink cartridges can also be replaced while the printer is running allowing for the print job to continue, which helps to improve the workflow of the end-user. This system is further enhanced for the imagePROGRAF iPF6450 and iPF6400 printers with a new 300ml tank size that will provide increased cost-savings.

Canon has also worked to help increase overall usability of each printer with a variety of new software features, including:

Gallery Wrap feature: Allows users to easily create gallery wrap prints for framing along with creative options that expand the output possibilities
Adjustment Pattern Setting: Users can print multiple versions of an image with different color setting in order to choose the color that most matches what is needed
Tint and Tone Adjustments: Controls the four monochromatic shades allowing a user to create even more expressive blacks with smooth gradations, especially in darker areas

The 12-color, 24-inch Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6450 printer has the option to add an onboard spectrophotometer for advanced color management including the ability to obtain color consistency across multiple iPFX400 series printers. The SU-21 Spectrophotometer also helps reduce operating costs by automating color management and is highly adaptable to user system environments.

The spectrophotometer device includes:

A fully automated mobile unit for the spectrophotometer for a wide range of media of various thicknesses to be loaded and used with the device
A specialized backing plate that has black and white strips on it and is user switchable
User-switchable UV blocking filter that can be turned on and off according to paper type
A scan speed of 10 inches per second
Expandable workflow options due to the ability to perform color calibration with third party media
2010 XRGA measurement standard compliance

The new Canon imagePROGRAF models are scheduled to be available in September through Authorized Canon Dealers and imagePROGRAF Premier Partners and will have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $11,995 for the iPF9400, $9,995 for the iPF9400S, $5,995 for the iPF8400 printer, $3,695 for the iPF6450, $2,995 for the iPF6400 and $1,795 for the SU-21 Spectrophotometer.

  1. If you buy one of these, be sure and get the extended warranty. We just spent more than the cost of the machine to repair our iPF8300 that was just a year and a half old. Not exactly what I'd call durable and I used to be a Canon fan.
