Auckland, NEW ZEALAND – 4 March 2024: Canon New Zealand today announces a trio of 11-colour plus chroma optimiser inkjet models for the large-format imagePROGRAF Series, the new imagePROGRAF 60-inch PRO-6600, 44-inch PRO-4600 and 24-inch PRO-2600 models.

Designed for photography and fine art, the new imagePROGRAF PRO line features the newly developed LUCIA PRO II¹ pigment ink designed to help improve the image quality from previous imagePROGRAF PRO Series models while also enhancing resistance to light. Improved black density on art paper was achieved by changing the formulation and material of matte black ink and the colour gamut of the dark region was expanded by the adoption of a newly designed image table. The new ink set can also work to help produce and preserve prints as a crystalline wax has been added to the ink, giving the printed surface better resistance to abrasion-caused scratches on glossy and semi-glossy media. The reformulated Chroma Optimiser is designed to give the surface a clear coat of transparent ink that helps suppress bronze phenomena and reduce uneven glossiness.

The new series includes a newly developed ink sensing system which periodically monitors the accuracy of the ink ejection and automatically maintains optimal ink placement position on the page to ensure high image quality. The intelligent media handling function automatically detects the paper type, width and estimated remaining amount of paper, plus it completes the paper feeding process in a shorter time than previous models. The automation of this process will help ensure stable operations even in the absence of skilled or experienced personnel. The addition of LED interior lights allows users to preview prints and semi-translucent ink tank covers allows users to monitor ink tank status.

Yoshinori Moritaki, General Manager Product Marketing at Canon Oceania comments, “The imagePROGRAF PRO Series models offer outstanding performance and versatility delivering exquisite print and impeccable details while providing excellent light resistance. The PRO models recreate expressive prints while also reproducing a wide colour gamut range that helps produce excellent image quality. The announcement of this latest series shows our on-going commitment to empower our customers with the tools and capabilities needed to deliver high-quality content for photography and fine art projects.”
