Canon imagePROGRAF announces yet another breakthrough in large format printing solutions. With the imagePROGRAF iPF5100 17" printer, brilliant colour, sophisticated print head technology, and high-speed output are brought together into a high-performance large format printing system. With features designed to help all levels of users achieve extraordinary results, the iPF5100 printer is the ideal solution for any colour professional looking for striking, full-bleed colour output with strength in paper handling and exceptional speed in output. The iPF5100 printer is engineered to produce colours, fine details, and subtle expressions required for some of the most challenging colour environments such as photography, proofing, and professional graphic applications.

The new iPF5100 printer is equipped with the ability to recalibrate itself to the original factory settings and apply any necessary adjustments across all media types. The result – a more predictable printing platform where results can be consistently achieved. The 12-colour pigment ink system with LUCIA inks offers excellent colour fastness and stability with a remarkably wide colour gamut. The printer’s LUCIA ink is formulated to reduce graininess, minimize bronzing and resist scratching and fading, producing images that are more defined, smoother and continuous in tone. The Canon L-COA processor, which is dedicated to the imagePROGRAF, is designed to optimize the best quality output at the highest possible speeds. Vivid breathtaking, long-lasting prints are achieved by combining Canon's advanced technological achievements. The iPF5100 is designed for reliability, simplicity, productivity and above all, quality.
