Today the commercial printing industry is dominated by silver halide technology, but the future is inkjet technology. Meet Canon’s inkjet production photo printer, the DreamLabo 5000. The advanced technology of this printer will change photo production for good.

Canon’s Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) print heads combine high-precision jets with ink-spray technology for uniform coverage and pinpoint accuracy. The result is 2400-dpi resolution output featuring incredible detail and crisp, high definition text.

With the DreamLabo 5000, there’s no need for time consuming, manual calibration—sensors along the paper path can provide consistent color throughout a run. Whether it’s the bride’s dress or a corporate logo, stable color reproduction and less color cast can be realized.

The DreamLabo 5000 automatically adapts to your printing environment, thereby avoiding changes in internal humidity that can cause degrading ink and paper performance. The printer comes standard with its own onboard humidifier, helping to create optimum performance at all times.

The odors emanating from many print production machines can be irritating to the breathing of operators, nearby personnel, and even neighboring businesses. On the other hand, the DreamLabo 5000 uses no harmful chemicals and provides virtually odorless operation. This is an advantage inkjet technology has over silver halide technology.

The DreamLabo 5000 is strategically engineered to provide optimum productivity and low-maintenance operation. Dual paper rolls allow you to change a roll while the machine continues to operate, and the option for a total of 4 rolls provide maximum flexibility for running multiple jobs with various paper types. And ink reserve reservoirs allow ink tanks to be changed without interrupting the current print jobs.

Canon can provide a software development kit (SDK) that helps integrate the operation of the DreamLabo 5000 right into your existing workflow management software. Applications are available for most of the commonly used packages in the commercial photo processing industry.
