Canon Introduces New Economical Poster Printers

New Canon Wide Format Inkjet PrintersCanon has introduced its new SE Series imagePROGRAF large format inkjet printers, geared toward poster and infographics printing. The new SE Series printers include the six-color 44-inch iPF8400SE Printer and 24-inch iPF6400SE Printer.

The SE Series includes a variety of features designed for efficiency and ease of use. Using the fast printing mode, the iPF SE Series can print an A1/D sized poster on coated paper in about one minute. The compact body design offers a small footprint, and the hot-swap ink tanks allow the inks to be changed while a job is in progress without stopping the print job.

An operator assistance function can also be set up on the device to provide messages that notify the user of needed routine services to help limit interruptions during print jobs.

The SE Series offers an Economy Printing Mode that decreases ink consumption. In this mode, overall color density is reduced to help cut ink consumption by up to 50 percent compared to the Standard mode.

The Canon Printer Driver provides a free layout (nesting) feature, allowing various print jobs to be placed on one sheet of media.

The SE Series also features PosterArtist Lite, which allows users to access pre-designed templates, royalty-free images, clipart, backgrounds, frames, text graphics, an image correction function that automatically corrects image colors, and a Cut Out function to remove selected areas of an image. A full version of PosterArtist is available for purchase, which includes additional pre-designed materials and advanced features such as Auto Design, Variable Printing, Design Check, Ambient Light Correction and Advanced Image Editing.

The Canon Printer Driver includes a new poster print setting, and Direct Print & Share, which offers cloud-based sharing capabilities, and several other management tools to help enhance set up and efficiency such as the Accounting Manager. The Accounting Manager helps track printing costs and includes a Media Configuration Tool for the quick and easy update of media information. Operating applications such as Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office Suite are also included.

Canon’s newly developed six-color ink system utilizes LUCIA EX features the traditional Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black and Matte Black inks, along with Red ink, which Canon says expands the color gamut beyond Canon’s imagePROGRAF eight-color models in the yellow to red regions to help produce vibrant, eye-catching posters.

Through Canon’s nozzle design, one printhead delivers six colors through six channels providing output from 15,360 individual nozzles. The LUCIA EX pigment ink system also helps ensure durable colors and scratch resistance for posters, retail graphics and other applications.
