Canon Introduces Two New Large Format Printers
Canon U.S.A., Inc.has announced two new large format printers – the imagePROGRAF iPF710 and imagePROGRAF iPF610 – for Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) applications as well as general office large format printing. The new Canon imagePROGRAF iPF710 and iPF610 printers feature the Company's five-color dye/pigment Reactive ink system and utilize Canon's L-COA image processor to instantly interpret advanced image-algorithms for incredible print speeds. The combination of the L-COA image processor and Reactive ink technology help to rapidly produce crisp and clear text and precise, intricately detailed line drawing while retaining line accuracy at ±0.1%. The new iPF610 is capable of creating an A1/D-sized print (23.4" x 33.1") in just 31 seconds on plain paper in fast mode while the iPF710 can produce A0/E-sized output (33.1" x 46.8") in only 55 seconds on plain paper in fast mode, all in full color.
Printing on 36- and 24-inch wide media, respectively, the iPF710 and iPF610 are geared for CAD and GIS applications and support widely available HP-GL/2 and HP-RTL page description languages to ensure compatibility with virtually any CAD and GIS applications. The printers also come with the AutoCAD imagePROGRAF HDI Driver and imagePROGRAF Printer Driver 2007 compatible with Windows and Macintosh operating systems for easy operation. Free Layout for Windows (Auto Layout for Mac) feature within the printer driver enables nesting of several smaller drawings or documents on a larger sheet, saving paper and effort to lay them out manually. Other new features include quiet operation and a large illuminated LCD control panel with instruction illustrations.
