Key features of the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6300

The iPF6300 A1/24” printer incorporates Canon’s latest LUCIA EX 12-colour pigment lightfast ink system to deliver outstanding accuracy, rich colours and exceptional versatility by addressing the exacting needs of production and proofing environments as well as the specialist photography applications.  A new formula of pigments offers excellent colour reproduction and increases the colour gamut by around 20% over previous LUCIA versions.  The Canon ink system coupled with improved image processing technology delivers prints with denser, sharper blacks and smooth colour gradations, and finest photographic details in the shadow areas.  The new inks are designed with an innovative polymer structure that results in greater scratch resistance and protection from colour fading while also reducing bronzing to ensure durable, stable output. The ink system also delivers higher print registration accuracy for precise text and fine lines which allows the iPF6300 to function as a precise proofing device.

Producing 2400 x 1200 dpi resolution, the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6300 prints A1 gloss in only four minutes. Canon’s L-COA image processing technology combined with Gigabit Ethernet compatibility ensure stunning high speed reproductions enabling fast data transfer even for data-heavy files or high volume print jobs.  The iPF6300 also features Canon’s Advanced Colour Calibration system ensuring the most stable colour reproduction attainable.  Canon’s unique colour calibration feature uses a built-in colour density sensor to optimise print output ensuring consistent and accurate colour reproduction.

Designed to work seamlessly with numerous third-party RIP vendors, the iPF6300 supports production, photography and proofing applications.  Improved software compatibility with ICC profile-based colour management systems (CMS) and support with third party RIP vendors add to the versatility of the iPF6300.  Compatible ICC profiles of popular media types from Hahnemuehle, Ilford and Sihl can be downloaded. Paper settings can be added and adjustments can be made to enhance the precision quality of your output with third party media.

A large, bright LCD screen makes the iPF6300 easy to operate with clear menu-driven controls for all functions.  The built-in cost management software makes it easy to track the cost of jobs and enables ROI calculations to be made over time.  Borderless printing means no need for offline trimming, saving time and money and Automatic Skew Correction enables unattended printing by automatically adjusting for any skew in orientation and feeds the paper/media correctly. A thoughtfully designed fan system ensures the quietest of operation.

A range of intuitive and powerful software applications are included with the iPF6300, ensuring usability in corporate environments as well as specialist printing environments.  Enhanced Print Plug-Ins for Adobe Photoshop and Digital Photo Professional, Digital Photo Front Access and the imagePROGRAF Printer driver are included with the iPF6300.


More on Canon imagePROGRAF proprietary technologies

Canon ImagePROGRAF large format printers use a number of advanced Canon proprietary technologies.  FINE™ (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print-head technology and dual print head design features a total of 30,720 nozzles into just two 1” high density print heads. Bi-directional printing design of the ImagePROGAF printers means print times are significantly faster than conventional print systems which require multiple passes for each line to compensate for uneven droplet size and placement on the paper.  An innovative ink-nozzle manufacturing method results in precisely uniform 4 picoliter droplets resulting in 2400 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi) resolution.  Ink placement and accuracy is also enhanced by the redesign of the mechanical structure of the imagePROGRAF iPF6300 by making the device resistant to any vibrations caused during scanning.

anon’s unique LUCIA EX pigment, lightfast ink system incorporates 12 colours and superfine 4-pl (picoliter) ink droplets ensuring a wide colour gamut, smooth gradation, reduced graininess and reduced bronzing.  A new formula of pigments offer excellent colour reproduction and increases the colour gamut by around 20% over previous LUCIA versions.  Canon’s LUCIA ink system delivers exceptionally accurate colours by including both RGB and CMYK.  The 12 colour ink system enables economical printing because there is less need to blend colours (such as magenta and yellow to create red) and so less ink is required.  Two grey inks are included, further reducing the need to blend colours and keeping costs down.

The High Precision Photo mode feature is available for the very finest results required by artists and photographers.  Specific technology controls ink placement according to the ink’s characteristics resulting in superb contrasts and detailed graduation in dark areas.  Brilliant black and white photography reproduction is achieved with a combination of black, matt black, grey, and photo grey inks, allowing for incredible lifelike photography with exceptional detail, opening the door to numerous applications including wedding photography, christenings and the fast growing lifestyle portrait work.  The new inks are designed with an innovative polymer structure that results in greater scratch resistance and protection from colour fading while also reducing bronzing to ensure durable, stable output for over 100 years.  The new ink system also delivers higher print registration accuracy for precise text and fine lines which allows the iPF6300 to function as a precise proofing device

Canon’s advanced L-COA (Large Format printer Common Architecture) image processor delivers faster high-quality output and print optimization.  L-COA helps your printer carry out the most complex print jobs – where files can often exceed 200MB – with ease

Kyuanos, a next generation colour management system is featured in the imagePROGRAF printer driver and the optional PosterArtist 2009 software.  Kyuanos technology delivers output suitable for different viewing conditions such as fluorescent lights, incandescent lights, or sunlight

Kyuanos offers an extended colour space for 16-bit and 32-bit formats that allows for maximum input and output performance without colour space restrictions. This enables the reproduction of exceptionally vivid colours with rich gradation Users can select the type of lighting under which a print will be displayed; the colours in the final print are then automatically adjusted to ensure that the displayed result looks just the way the photographer intended

Canon’s Advanced Colour Calibration is a powerful colour calibration system ensuring the most stable colour reproduction attainable.  In conventional systems, changing print heads may cause a minute variation in print output, due to the density characteristics of the print head.  With Canon’s Advanced Colour Calibration, a multi-sensor measures variations in density on a printed calibration chart and then automatically applies any appropriate adjustments to ensure an exact match for long–term consistency.
