SMOOTH FLOW

Anti-clogging technology is designed to eliminate white lines for consistently high quality prints. Ink ejection conditions are precisely checked with sensors, and when a blockage is detected, another nozzle automatically provides backup and compensates to provide a smooth, even flow of ink.

In addition to reducing the possibility of printing failures due to banding, this also reduces the frequency at which head cleaning is required. By reducing unnecessary head cleaning you save valuable inks.

PRAISE FOR THE PRO SERIES

The Canon PRO-1000 is an excellent printer and an excellent value… (and) makes fantastic, professional-quality prints. Colors are rich and vibrant, and the black levels are very good. Prints have a wide dynamic range and images show great detail and depth.

A PHOTOGRAPHER’S OBSESSION

A PHOTOGRAPHER’S OBSESSION

I used to joke about being obsessed with photography, but this is just a different level.

THE OBSESSION EXPERIMENT

SEE WHAT A PHOTOGRAPHER OBSESSES OVER

We took a look inside a photographer’s obsession. World-renowned photographer Joel Grimes prints one of his most stunning photographs with the incredible new Canon imagePROGRAF PRO Series and has it scrutinized by his toughest critic – himself.

Just amazing detail in all of these things here… see the light coming across that shows the detail on his skin, even the hair on his hands is perfectly showing detail.

FEED THE VISION

Witness the beauty of intuitive user interface advances with our powerful new plug-in software. Professional photographers are able to completely customize and save multiple printing parameters and then recall those settings on-the-fly to align with their finely tuned expectations. By reducing the process of test prints you save time, ink and paper. This efficiency enhances productivity placing the focus on your prints, not set up.

Canon-in, Canon-out now has greater appeal because a contrast reproduction function in combination with the Digital Lens Optimizer (included in Digital Photo Professional) prints sharp, high-definition images without losing any of the qualities present when the image was photographed. Intuitive operation, flexible settings, enhanced integration all work seamlessly with your image editing software.

FOR PROS AND SCHOOLS

Manage multiple printers, regardless of location, for consistency. The Device Management Console allows you to monitor, control and calibrate your imagePROGRAF PRO Series printers remotely. The settings you establish here can be duplicated in another printer there.

Also accurately track the costs of every single job with Accounting Manager by accounting for every sheet of paper and the volume of ink needed for each print.

DETAILED GRADUATIONS

With 11-color inks, including a newly formulated blue and magenta, plus the Chroma Optimizer ink, produce superior printouts on which dark blue areas are clearly defined to express your printed photography with the power of nuance. Achieve a wider color gamut and richer details in darker shadowed areas for the finest details in nightscapes and sunsets. Also change media types from glossy to fine art paper seamlessly with a dedicated nozzle for Matte Black and Photo Black.

OUR PASSION HAS YIELDED A NEW BLUE COLOR FOR DETAILS IN THE SHADOWS

Blue has no dimensions, it is beyond dimensions, whereas the other colours are not. They are pre-psychological expanses, red, for example, presupposing a site radiating heat. All colours arouse specific associative ideas, psychologically material or tangible, while blue suggests at most the sea and sky, and they, after all, are in actual, visible nature what is most abstract.

HOLDS THE LINE

We excel at alignment, by design. The revolutionary Canon Air Feeding System prevents each page from skewing and improves the precision of ink droplet placement. A series of openings located on top of the platen vacuum-grips the paper flat during feeding. The skew correction function guarantees that all types of paper, including gloriously thick paper, can be printed without misplacement as it is held tight to the platen with a vacuum grip, even in environments with factors of temperature and humidity.

AIR FEEDING SYSTEM

This Air Feeding system creates a printing environment that holds a consistent height between the print head and the media being used. In a world of constant variables, the remarkable ink impact accuracy is just another factor in gorgeous prints. Be still my heart.
