Addressing the increased demand for professional and high-quality print jobs, Canon will showcase the new 44-inch imagePROGRAF iPF825 high-speed color production large format printer. One of two new models announced at Graph EXPO, the new dual-role, 44-inch model is designed for use within the Geographical Information System (GIS); Computer-Aided Design (CAD); Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC); Reprographics; and other Technical Document markets. In addition, Canon will display the 44-inch imagePROGRAF iPF8300, featuring Canon's 12-Color LUCIA EX pigment ink set and advanced printing technologies specifically developed to produce prints with an enhanced color range and improved durability. Designed for ultra high-quality print performance and increased productivity, the iPF8300 delivers the capability to accurately produce vivid output of consumers' most demanding projects.
Built upon the revolutionary imagePRESS platform, the new imagePRESS C7010VP was developed in direct response to customer feedback to help grow their businesses. Based on the ten areas of excellence that are most important to customers, the new model offers commercial printers, print-service providers and Inplant/CRDs the ability to work with an expanded array of media types as well as new features designed to enhance overall performance. Improvements in image quality, color consistency and versatility result from advanced technologies including a new internal sensor enabling better humidity control for more accurate toner distribution and greater color consistency, the ability to handle a broader range of media, up to 120 lb. cover weight and new finishing capabilities that increase the range of device output. New Saddle Finisher increases the maximum sheet count by 25 percent, allowing for stitching of up to 25 sheets of 13 x 19.2-inch paper for creation of 100-page booklets, dramatically broadening the scope of documents that can be produced. From proofing, to short run, to print-on-demand and even variable data printing, the imagePRESS C7010VP is an ideal and versatile solution.
