Take a more detailed look into the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000
New – LUCIA PRO pigment ink
LUCIA PRO pigment ink is newly developed for the imagePROGRAF PRO series to deliver printing with wide colour gamut, excellent colour expression, superior dark area reproduction, low graininess, and good gloss characteristics.
New – advanced precision print head
The new imagePROGRAF PRO series 12-colour, fully integrated print head enables even faster printing with exceptional print quality. At a compact 1.28” wide, it enables efficient, high-precision ink ejection without discrepancies.
New – image processing engine
imagePROGRAF PRO series printers feature a re-designed processing engine: L-COA PRO. It combines the latest and most advanced Canon image-handling algorithms with a newly-developed, application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) for processing high resolution images and data – delivering the very best print quality at high speed.
New – rigid platform for best quality
imagePROGRAF PRO series printers feature a brand new mechanical platform. The highly innovative chassis structure provides an exceptionally rigid frame that can maintain a precise distance between the print head and media – virtually eliminating oscillation for high-precision ink placement with minimal inter-colour discrepancy.
Dual roll unit
The optional dual roll unit provides either additional paper roll or functions as a media take-up unit for printed output. Media take-up can be performed with the printed surface either on the inside or on the outside.
imagePROGRAF PRO series printers use transparent Chroma Optimiser ink to improve high quality print performance on gloss papers.
Consistent colour reproduction is achieved between print jobs, compensating for any variation due to differences among printers or changes over time.
Crystal-fidelity output quality
The full structure, clarity and texture of photographs shot using Canon’s EOS digital cameras can be faithfully reproduced on paper, in unique Crystal-fidelity quality, using Canon’s Print Studio Pro plug-in.
Great selection of software
The software bundled with imagePROGRAF PRO series printers support a wide range of large-format and advanced printing solutions, with features to optimise the efficiency of printing environments. More importantly, the software is fully cross-platform, supporting both Windows and Apple Macintosh computers.
