The L-COA1 print controller intelligently processes the print data to implement high-speed processing in order to accurately lay ink down for optimal image quality. Combined with Canon's dual print head design and the most ink nozzles per color in the industry, the L-COA controller helps achieve print speeds of under three minutes for 16.5" x 23.4" (A2) size prints, at 1200 x 1200 dpi on a glossy photo paper.
(*Print speeds noted here are bench-mark testing results conducted by Canon Inc. The testing conditions are as follows: The print time is measured from the start of printing until the image is exited out from the printer. These tests were conducted with a Pentium® 4 3.2GHz CPU running Windows XP, 1GB RAM, USB 2.0, from Adobe Photoshop 7.0, ISO/JIS-SCID No.5 (bicycle chart) enlarged to 410mm x 512.5mm, using printer driver default setting.)
