Canon USA, Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, has announced the new imagePROGRAF PRO Series printer models including PRO-6100, PRO-4100, PRO-2100, PRO-6100S and PRO-4100S. These large-format solutions offer new innovative technologies for fine art, photographers, and production signage users.
Building on the success of previous PRO Series, these new printers feature a ‘first-of-its-kind’ intelligent automatic media feeding and media reading system, which allows the operator to move away from the printer after placing the roll in the machine, removing the need to feed the roll or select the media type. After the roll is loaded into the machine the media is automatically fed while the built in multi-sensor measures the surface reflection and media thickness to identify the media type.
The device features a new technology in which it can automatically detect the media length as well, without the need to print a barcode as with Canon’s previous devices and as with current third-party devices. These new models also have the ability to print borderless on all standard and custom widths, an ideal time and cost-savings feature built to benefit print professionals.
The new PRO Series is designed to provide customers with an easy-to-use experience that values time as well as productivity. Built with an intuitive, upgraded 4.3 inch touch-screen operation panel, this series provides users with better operability and visibility. For added usability, the three main functions, media switching, feeding and cutting, are conveniently hard buttons on the front of the product’s interface to contribute to better media handling and save users the hassle of having to navigate through multiple functions. The printers have all been updated with a transparent clear window designed to allow end users to easily see whether printing has begun, and check printed images and the printing size.
