The 44-inch imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 printer is designed to exceed expectations for image quality and color consistency in a large format printer. The use of new a 1.28-inch wide 12-channel integrated compact print head, LUCIA PRO ink set plus Chroma Optimizer, a high-precision mechanical platform and the L-COA PRO high-speed image processing engine achieves a balance between exceptional print quality and speed.
Canon's technologies and innovations establish the foundation for an ultra-high quality photography imaging solution that is available only from Canon. Powered by a Canon-to-Canon workflow that links images captured with an EOS Digital Camera and printed on an imagePROGRAF PRO Series printer, the result is a solution that delivers prints that capture the moment and emotion of the original image. The overwhelmingly high print quality produced by this input to output solution is called Crystal-fidelity.
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 finest 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 finest 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, like previous imagePROGRAF 12-color models, 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 to prevent wasted prints due to clogging, this also helps reduce the frequency of nozzle cleaning required.
NO SWITCHING OF BLACK INKS
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 changin gpaper 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 abuilt-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,ensuring 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 looks as stunning as the first.
MULTIFUNCTION ROLL SYSTEM
The Multifunction Roll System—standard with the PRO-6000 and optional for the PRO-4000 and PRO-2000 printers—can be used in two different ways. It can enable you to load a second roll of a different media type and size at the same time so that you can automatically switch from printing on matte to gloss paper without interrupting your workflow, or the unit can beoperator-configured as a bi-directional Take-up unit.
EFFORTLESS MEDIA LOADING
Loading media on a Canon large-format printer has never been easier than on the imagePROGRAF PRO Series printers. Simply set the roll holder in the printer, rotate the roll holder handles, and let the media automatically feed into the printer. There's no need to touch the paper, helping to decrease the risk of creasing and blemishes.
HIGH-CAPACITY INK TANKS
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.
