Canon displays 12-colour iPF9000 at IISS, Mumbai
At the recently concluded India International Sign Show, Mumbai (June 1-3, 2007), Canon displayed imagePROGRAF iPF9000 large format printer. This 60” wide iPF9000 incorporates Canon’s 12 ink full colour pigment ink system. A new one-inch dual print head gives outstanding reproduction of 2400 x 1200 dpi, a 4 Pl droplet size and a total of 30,720 nozzles. Additional RGB colours ensure a wider colour gamut; grey and photo grey ensure better gradation, reduced granularity and high colour accuracy and consistency; whilst pigment ink ensures output that’s stable in lit conditions.
Eye-catching print quality makes the iPF9000 perfect for professional performance:
42” borderless printing with precise colour calibration produces posters and signs that turn heads. It can be used for fine art productions and photographic works.
Besides, it can handle a wide variety of media – plain paper, CAD, recycled, glossy, proofing, synthetic, poster, fine art, sign media, etc. To aid productivity further, users can even replace the ink tanks whilst printing so that print deadlines aren’t affected. The visitors to their stand were really impressed with the performance and features of this large format printer
