Canon's Radiant Infusion Technology Designed to Help Users Create Vibrant Color Embellishments in Large Format Printing

MELVILLE, NY, November 30, 2023 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging and printing solutions, is delighted to announce its remarkable achievement in receiving a distinguished Buyers Lab (BLI) 2023-2024 Pacesetter Award in Production Print Applications: Color Embellishments Large Format. This prestigious award, presented by Keypoint Intelligence, recognizes Canon as an industry leader in this pivotal category based on comprehensive research they conducted across the North American and Western European markets.

Keypoint Intelligence notes that they conducted an exhaustive evaluation of production print application offerings, focusing on multiple aspects of the production and business development processes spanning nine categories. In Keypoint’s comprehensive assessment, Canon emerged as a key solution provider for low to mid-end graphics art PSPs aiming to diversify their portfolio and meet the unique challenges of their industry.

"The Pacesetter Award in Production Print Applications: Color Embellishments Large Format highlights Canon's Radiant Infusion technology as a transformative innovation," said Eric Zimmerman, Principal Analyst of Wide Format Printing, Keypoint Intelligence. "Radiant Infusion opens up exciting possibilities for PSPs to venture beyond the limits of CMYK, all while maintaining cost-effectiveness. Through the strategic layering of fluorescent pink ink with various other colors during the printing process, this technology breathes life into prints, producing an array of fresh, brilliant hues that elevate the visual appeal and luminosity of graphics and posters—a winning solution for these applications."

Canon's Radiant Infusion technology is available in the large format 24", 36", and 44" imagePROGRAF GP-series, with fluorescent pink ink integrated into the respective ink sets. This innovation provides a broad color gamut and the ability to achieve dazzling digital printing effects without the need for additional equipment. This empowers smaller PSPs and print buyers to create impactful and effective communication materials.

"Canon is honored to be granted a BLI 2023-2024 Pacesetter Award in Production Print Applications: Color Embellishments Large Format for North American distribution, with significant credit attributed to the imagePROGRAF GP series,” said Shinichi “Sam” Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “This series, recognized for its outstanding performance and versatility, continues to empower businesses with amazing capabilities.
