Features

Roll (optional) Cassette Manual Front Feed Manual Top Feed All media loading can be done from the front of the printer; there is no necessity for the user to go behind the printer in order to load paper. An automatic media switching feature has been added, keeping the workflow speed on par with the printer. Instead, media switching is done within the printer driver and doesn't require the user to physically go to the printer and change anything.
With the Canon HDI Driver, the driver creates a vector graphical representation of the printed data. Here points are defined and a curved line is calculated mathematically in order to achieve precision. The HDI Driver creates a graphically accurate drawing of the printed data.
