KEY FEATURE

Key features of the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8300S

The iPF8300S 44” large format printer features Canon’s unique LUCIA EX 8-colour pigment lightfast ink system and improved image processing technology delivering superb print quality, excellent reliability, exceptional versatility and added productivity. The imagePROGRAF iPF8300S delivers a wider colour gamut, smoother gradation, deeper dark tones and sharper blacks as seen with the iPF6300, IPF6350 and iPF8300 and features higher print speed and broad workflow compatibility as well as lowering the total cost of ownership. A wider colour gamut enables the iPF8300S to be used in applications that require greater precision, and a colour profile designed for poster production adds to its versatility. Improved scratch resistance and reduced bronzing combined with higher print registration accuracy for precise text and fine lines means superb quality.

Producing 2400 x 1200 dpi resolution, the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8300S prints up to 63.5 SQM /HR using Economy, Fast mode with uncoated plain 80gsm media.. Productivity is improved through a new mirrored nozzle layout and the option to print in Fast mode, which enables the print speed to be as much as doubled, while still maintaining a level of print quality that rivals that in standard mode. When turn around is time critical, for posters and point-of-sale (POS) items, this feature is a major advantage. The iPF8300S also features Proof, Image and Economy modes, enabling the user to decide what level of image quality is needed when printing. Proof mode produces sharper text and lines, making it ideal for high precision proof printing, while Image mode enables high-precision printing of text and lines without a reduction in speed, making it a good choice when placement accuracy is less important than speed. Economy mode reduces ink consumption by almost 50%, making it convenient for producing posters for internal use or checking layouts during test printing.
A number of new Alert features have been designed to improve productivity. The iPF8300S features Hot Swap high capacity ink tanks of both 330ml and 700ml capacity, replaceable during a print job. An audio notification alerts when ink tanks need to be replaced, Email notifications can be sent to a computer or mobile phone when jobs are finished, when errors occur and when it’s time to replace consumables, helping to minimise downtime.

Compatible with a broad range of RIPs enables users to integrate the imagePROGRAF iPF8300S into existing workflows. The imagePROGRAF iPF8300S incorporates a number of productivity tools including a built-in 160GB hard disk enabling the storage of large print jobs easily accessible from the printer’s large, bright and easy-to-use LCD panel. Gigabit Ethernet compatibility enables fast data transfer, even for data-heavy files or high volume print jobs.

A host of features make the iPF8300S easy to work with, even without extensive training, making it ideal for non-print businesses looking at bringing the printing of posters and display material in-house. The printer driver can be tailored to suit the user’s level of expertise and control of the print can be done from the large, bright LCD operation panel on the front of the printer. Together with the help of Canon’s Print Plug-In for Microsoft Office and PosterArtist Lite software, which is bundled with the IPF8300S, even users unfamiliar with design can create professional-looking posters, display items, presentation charts and other large format documents. In just four simple steps you can create professional looking posters, banners and signs using a variety of templates, high resolution, royalty-free images and clipart with PosterArtist Lite.
For designers and photographers, the Canon Print Plug-Ins for Adobe Photoshop and Digital Photo Professional makes printing high-precision images easy. Photoshop and Digital Photo Professional are 64-bit compatible and the Photoshop Plug-In has been enhanced to include CMYK, as well as RGB. The imagePROGRAF Printer Driver includes an “Easy Mode” which uses Canon’s pre-defined settings for speed and simplicity of use. Switch to “Advanced Mode” and adjustments can be made for customising drying times, colour settings and managing ICC profiles. Page set-up allows customised page sizes if required and best-fit option for each media is selectable. Select the watermark feature to protect the rights of your images. For enhanced workflow, pre-defined settings can be created using hot folders. A maintenance facility allows you to adjust media feed, do a nozzle check, clean the print heads, check the queue and carry out other time saving features.

More on Canon imagePROGRAF proprietary technologies
Canon imagePROGRAF wide 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 and outstanding photo-quality print performance.

Canon’s unique LUCIA EX pigment, lightfast ink systems incorporate 8 colours and superfine 4-pl (picoliter) ink droplets ensures a wider colour gamut, smoother gradation, reduced graininess and reduced bronzing. LUCIA EX ink system has an innovative polymer structure that results in exceptional scratch resistance and protection from colour fading, while reducing bronzing to ensure durable, stable output. Specific technology controls ink placement according to the ink’s characteristics resulting in superb contrasts and detailed graduation in dark areas. The LUCIA EX ink system also delivers higher print registration accuracy for precise text and fine lines which allows the iPF8300S 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.
