Panabiz showcases Canon image PROGRAF models for CAD, AEC, GIS markets

Panabiz International Limited has introduced the Canon image PROGRAF large format printer range with optional MFP capabilities which will deliver more efficient printing and scanning of large format technical documents for design and engineering professionals.

The new, versatile Canon image PROGRAF printers are optimized for use by professionals in a variety of different markets including Computer-Aided Design (CAD); Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC); Geographical Information System (GIS) and other technical document professional areas to produce large technical documents or posters in colour for Graphics artists.

The software utilities that are included are highly valuable to users in the retail signage industry as well as general office environments. The ability to quickly print technical documents up to 2400 x 1200 dots-per-inch (dpi) with precise lines can provide a tremendous professional advantage for organizations that rely on this speed and accuracy to stay relevant in a competitive market.

Offering outstanding print quality Canon LUCIA EX pigment ink, professionals can achieve high quality and performance in such printing applications as colour or monochrome photography, industrial design and high-quality poster production.

The 12-color, 8-colour & 5-colour systems, utilized by various models, cover a reproducible color gamut. With its new pigment materials and structure, Canon's LUCIA EX inks set achieve greater shadow details, deeper black density and overall scratch resistance.

This ink system works in conjunction with the high-density print head featuring Canon's FINE (Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) technology with 2,560 nozzles for each colour: cyan, magenta, yellow, black, matte black, photo cyan, photo magenta and gray.

An additional notable feature in the new imagePROGRAF models is a built-in colour calibration function which compensates for color variations caused by factors such as age and environmental affects, enabling consistent color representation across multiple large-format printers or when printing multiple copies.

Enhancing productivity & performance, two important attributes users look for when making the decision to purchase a large format printer are high-quality output and overall speed.

With new Fast and Economy print modes, speeds can be achieved up to twice as fast as the conventional models, helping to enhance overall productivity while also reducing ink consumption by approximately 50 percent. The imagePROGRAF models are capable of handling the documents ranging from a B0-sized (39.37" x 55.67") to A1-sized (23.39" x 33.11") documents. These printers come with a hard drive capacity making it possible to reprint the required number of copies at any time with or without a computer.

These easy-to-use imagePROGRAF large format printers have been designed with the workflow of professionals in mind. Raster image processors (RIPs) from a variety of developers are supported for print proofing, design, commercial photographic printing and other applications.

The Canon imagePROGRAF printers allow users to establish a tailored proofing system from a range of usage applications, with all of the new models supporting RIP’s released by vendors including: GMG, CGS, EFI and ONYX. This further supports a range of print applications such as proofs, designs, and commercial photos, allowing designers, photographers and other professional users to print without changing preferred workflows.

When working on a project in the photo lab, studio or agency it is important to have images printed as good if not better than when first captured. Helping to make this process a little easier is the inclusion of a print Plug-In for Adobe Photoshop providing further support for the proofing, photo and 64-bit printing environment. When edited in Photoshop, 16-bit Adobe RGB images can be processed directly to the machines preserving the images wide gamut and smooth gradation. There is also a print plug-in provided for Digital Photo Professional allowing for direct printing of high-quality RAW images helping to preserve overall image quality.

"At Panabiz, we not only see the importance of providing our customers the tools necessary for delivering outstanding document imaging solutions but also having a high-quality devices to print the output," said Diwakar Yadavalli, General Manager, Panabiz International Limited. "The introduction the Canon imagePROGRAF models further solidifies our position to providing high-quality equipments that are easy to use and available at an affordable price."
