The new ink system consists of four dye color inks and a 2-channel matte black pigment ink. Doubling the matte black is used for maximum black density and speed. When printing, four of the colors may be applied at the same time, since matte black or black is automatically selected based on the media type selected in the printer driver. Matte black will be used when printing on plain or matte media whereas the dye-based black will be used when printed on coated or glossy paper.
Offers two-way paper feeding Roll Cut Sheet (front loading) The roll loading has to be done from the back of the device as opposed to the iPF500 and iPF600. The minimum media thickness is 0.07 mm and the maximum media thickness is 0.8 mm for either roll or cut sheet. In regards to the roll size, the maximum outside diameter is 150mm. The roll core can be either 2" or 3".
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. 1L-COA = Large format printer Common Architecture
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.

This Windows® and Macintosh® driver incorporates advanced black and white control, simplified page setup options, 1-touch borderless printing, expanded color settings, and much more into a printer driver that is intuitive and easy to operate, but still gives even the most advanced users the tools needed to stay productive. For Windows users, the free-layout feature enables nesting and custom layouts of images or files of nearly any type. 14 preset document profiles (examples are Poster, CAD, Photo) Automatic print quality options dependent on print application and media Improved preview of Document and Printer settings Borderless printing Saturation and Gray adjustment Easy Long Print Input profiles Easy setting/Advanced setting Print Priority CAD color (thicken fine lines) Black ink printing Switching the number of passes 1,200 dpi rendering Free layout feature Edit using Poster Artist Enhanced profile settings Scan to Copy - iR enlargement copy

Full-fledged, high-quality document and CAD/GIS renderings take advanced technology. Our newly-developed print head has two nozzle lines instead of just one. This increases the number of nozzles by a factor of two. The high-density, high-speed and high-quality print head comes with 2,560 nozzles per color (6 colors) with a total of 15,360 nozzles in total. The addition of a second nozzle line to the print head means that speed is increased dramatically; this is due to twice as many nozzles firing droplets of ink during one pass of the print head, thus applying more ink to the media. The addition of the second nozzle also means that the print head may travel faster across the media.
