Canon announces two new imagePROGRAF large format Printers for graphic arts Professionals
Canon U.S.A. today announced two new large format printers – the 44-inch imagePROGRAF iPF8300S and 24-inch imagePROGRAF iPF6300S. These two 8-color large format printers feature similar technology found in the award-winning 12-color iPF8300, iPF6350 and iPF6300 printers, including Canon’s LUCIA EX ink set. With Canon LUCIA EX pigment ink, professionals can achieve high quality and performance in such printing applications as color or monochrome photography, industrial design and high-quality poster production. The Canon iPF8300S can produce a B0-sized (39.37″ x 55.67″) output in approximately 80 seconds while the Canon iPF6300S can deliver an A1-sized (23.39″ x 33.11″) document in roughly 35 seconds. The new Canon S-series printers have doubled their hard drive capacity compared to earlier models now with 160 GB, making it possible to reprint the required number of copies at any time with or without a computer.
These new additions to the imagePROGRAF lineup broaden Canon’s offering to the graphics arts, photo and production markets by setting a new standard for the category by providing an optimal balance of high productivity and exceptional print quality. The 44-inch Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8300S will be available for approximately $4,995 while the 24-inch imagePROGRAF iPF6300S for approximately $2,995. Both models are expected to begin shipping in April.
