MELVILLE, N.Y., September 28, 2017 – Canon U.S.A., Inc.- Latin America Group, a leader in digital imaging solutions, announces the launch of the latest addition to the imagePROGRAF PRO Series product line, the 11-color plus Chroma Optimizer 60-inch PRO-6000 Large-format printer. This printer is unique in that it is the only 60-inch, high-end, high-quality ink jet printer in the market today.
Ideal for professional photography and fine art reproductions, the imagePROGRAF PRO-6000 printer is designed to exceed expectations for image quality, color consistency, and productivity. Empowered by a unique Canon-to-Canon workflow that links images captured with an EOS Digital Camera and printed with an imagePROGRAF PRO Series printer, known as Crystal-fidelity, this printer can produce spectacular large-format output that maintains all of the color, texture, contrast, and emotion captured in the original image.
Expanding the PRO Series line-up, the new 60-inch 11-color plus Chroma Optimizer imagePROGRAF PRO-6000 model features the same print head, LUCIA PRO ink, L-COA PRO image processor, and sleek sturdy design as the rest of the PRO Series models. Highlights that set this printer apart from the crowd include its 60-inch print width, 11-color plus Chroma Optimizer ink set, that offers spectacular image quality for the fine art and photographic markets, as well as feeding from a standard Multifunction Roll System. The standard Multifunction Roll System is a versatile media handling system that enables either two rolls of media to be loaded at the same time, or for the unit to be configured as a bi-directional media take-up unit.
When used as a second media roll, the Multifunction Roll System can be used to load glossy media on one roll and fine art media on the other and seamlessly print to both without the user ever needing to manually switch the media. The Multifunction Roll System, with Canon’s innovative media handling system, enables a roll of media to be loaded into the printer without directly touching the media with your hands. Simply set the media in the roll holder and lightly rotate the flange to enable the leading edge of the media to be automatically fed. This avoids potential damage or creasing of the media upon loading.
Further enhancing the user experience with this new imagePROGRAF PRO Series printer is the intuitive software solution, Print Studio Pro. With a focus on quality and ease of use, Print Studio Pro is a plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop®, Adobe Lightroom®, Adobe Photoshop Elements® 2 and Canon Digital Photo Professional. This software will help to dramatically improve fine details and gradations for a highly accurate reproduction of the original captured image and easily exports files directly to the printer. Workflow and utilities solutions that come standard with the printer include:
