Canon Europe has launched its new 12-colour 60-inch large format professional inkjet printer to complete the award-winning imagePROGRAF PRO series. The PRO-6000 offers unsurpassed photo printing with a 12-colour ink system, dual-roll printing for excellent productivity and a space-saving design.

The PRO-6000 is consistently superior in print quality

The wide colour gamut of the PRO-6000 enables photographic output of exceptional quality, which is now available in 60 inches. Ideal for advertisements, graphics, and posters for indoor and outdoor use, the PRO-6000 features the newly developed LUCIA PRO pigment ink and transparent Chroma Optimiser ink for printing with excellent colour expression, superior black reproduction, good gloss characteristics and suppression of bronzing. Thanks to Canon’s unique input-output technology and Crystal-fidelity feature, photos look as accurate printed as when they were captured, thus meeting the demands of the most critical photographers and graphic arts designers.

Unbeatable efficiency and productivity

The newly developed Multifunction Roll System enables unattended use for multiple purposes using different media types with a single printer. In addition, simultaneous loading of the two types of black ink allows loss-free and automatic ink switching across various media. With a powerful L-COA PRO high-speed image processing engine, the new PRO-6000 is capable of processing large volumes of high-res images and data with ease. As a result, the new device enables poster-quality printing at a faster speed of current imagePROGRAF 12-colour models. Full connectivity and Wi-Fi functionality ensures optimum productivity for busy environments through seamless integration with existing networks. The compact design of the PRO-6000 also makes it ideal for space-pressed print operations and other businesses that had forgone the introduction of a large format printer.

Hiroaki Shirakawa, LFP Product Management Manager, Canon Europe, states: “The imagePROGRAF PRO series is dedicated to a high balance between print quality and productivity. Efficient media handling, and high-speed uninterrupted printing to support high-volume output are fast becoming fundamental requirements for both print-for-pay and print-for-use environments. As an imaging company, we understand the importance of fine detail and precise colours to professional users. For discerning photographers and graphic artists, the stunning quality output and powerful technology of our 12-colour devices is unmatched by the competition. Naturally, we are very excited to have completed the PRO suite of printers and to begin rolling out the new imagePROGRAF PRO-6000 this year.”

Award-winning landscape photographer Andy Farrer has always been a fan of printing his own work, but when he had to outsource larger work than his Epson A2 printer could produce, he found that the prints were decidedly better quality than his own.

Keen to discover how his printed images could be improved, Andy found that the prints came from a Canon Wide Format machine. After taking in a Canon PRO2000 for trial and review, he was so impressed that he purchased a 44” PRO-4000 and 17” PRO-1000 for cut sheet work, outright, and set up a printing studio to add a profitable new revenue stream to his photography business.

For Andy, the Canon printers have brought a whole host of benefits such as improving print quality, lowering printing costs and making the whole printing process quicker and easier, with great features such as zero-waste black ink switching.

Canon have been working closely with Aston Martin and Hackett London to provide the ultimate in capture-to-print workflow during a recent advertising campaign photoshoot.

Aston Martin and Hackett London are both prestigious, luxury British brands who take pride in the quality of the products that they manufacture. It was therefore no surprise that they engaged with world renowned fashion, beauty and portrait photographers Clive Booth and Bill Waters who, aided by Canon Europe, delivered a truly best-in-class project to reflect their brand values.

A 12 ink Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 was a key part of the photoshoot, allowing Clive to immediately print captured images and show Hackett the colour-accurate proofs, instilling total confidence as to how good they would look once the finished ‘Look book’ was produced in volume using a Canon C10000VP Digital Press.

Keith Cooper of Northlight Images has produced a thorough review of the PRO-2000, please see a quote from his summary below:

“The summary would be that this is Canon’s best large format printer yet, with the reformulated ink set with the Colour Optimiser (gloss coat) showing improvements on many papers over the previous models.

The new inks and printer produce better quality black and white prints with minimal fine tuning and adjustment. Changes are subtle but noticeable if you compare a black and white print with the older printers under artificial light.

The printer is appreciably bigger and heavier than the old iPF6400, but has the capacity for larger ink cartridges, up to 700ml. It also has an internal hard disk as standard”

LONDON, 04 March 2015 – Canon Europe, world leader in imaging solutions, has today announced a new range of imagePROGRAF PRO large format professional inkjet printers. The new imagePROGRAF PRO-2000 and imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 are designed to bring stunning image quality to professional photographers and fine art applications, while the new imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S and imagePROGRAF PRO-6000S deliver fast and reliable printing to high-volume print service providers that require photo quality prints such as posters, banners and canvas.

Superior image quality for professional users
The 12-colour PRO-2000 and PRO-4000 enable the full clarity and texture of photographs taken with a Canon EOS camera to be perfectly reproduced. Thanks to Canon’s unique input-output technology and Crystal-fidelity feature, photos look as accurate printed as when they were captured. Available in two sizes (24” and 44”) the PRO-2000 and PRO-4000 feature an attractive black design with an accentuated red line, denoting the link with Canon EOS digital cameras. The new devices use newly developed LUCIA PRO pigment ink to meet the demands of the most critical photographers and graphic artists, as well as transparent Chroma Optimiser ink to improve print performance on gloss paper.

Mathew Faulkner, European Marketing Manager for Wide Format Group, Canon Europe says “At Canon, we understand the importance of fine detail and precise colours to professional users. Images shot on even mid-range cameras can be very high resolution, and with the ability of today’s image editing software, this demands a highly accurate and colour-consistent output. The powerful technology of the new PRO-2000 and PRO-4000 models, not only provide incredible image reproduction, but the small footprint makes them ideal for any office, studio or design department.”

Unbeatable efficiency for print service providers
Also available in two sizes, (44” and 60”), the PRO-4000S and PRO-6000S boast an ergonomic compact design, which is ideal for time and space-pressed print operations in graphic arts, advertising and creative sectors. With a powerful L-COA PRO engine capable of processing large volumes of high-res images and data with ease, the new devices enable poster-quality printing at twice the speed of current imagePROGRAF 8 colour models. Full connectivity and Wi-Fi functionality ensures optimum productivity for busy environments.

Mathew Faulkner continues, “Whether for PSPs or in-house print departments in retailers or educational facilities, the trend towards more operational efficiency and on-demand printing is undeniable. There is a growing requirement not only for high quality imaging, but for ease of use and efficient media handling, as well as high-speed and uninterrupted printing to support high-volume output. These fundamental tools require a powerful and dependable large format printer. The PRO-4000S and PRO-6000S deliver speed, accuracy and colour vibrancy, making them ideal for both print-for-pay and print-for-use environments.”

The new devices feature Canon’s unique dual roll technology to support continuous paper feeding and take-up of printed output, while direct printing from a USB memory stick enables fast and easy prints. The imagePROGRAF PRO series is further improved by the new precision 1.28” wide print head and high-capacity ink tanks for fast, uninterrupted printing.

The new imagePROGRAF series will be available across Europe from the middle of 2016
