imagePROGRAF iPF8400

Built for ultra high quality imaging and exceptional performance, the imagePROGRAF iPF8400 44" large format printer is equipped with an array of professional features. An incredibly large colour spectrum is produced by the 12-Colour LUCIA EX pigment ink set, which also provides better scratch resistance and smoother gradations. The new Multi-sensor included with this printer provides improved colour density detection and allows for a full calibration to be completed within 15 minutes, with the ability to use non-Canon branded media. A new Colour Calibration Management System allows for colour calibration targets to be created using the iPF6450 with optional spectrophotometer and shared across all new iPFX400 12-colour printers, and the included software allows for all printers on the network to be monitored from one central location. In highest print mode, the order of ink application and layering is optimized to maintain the highest print quality with fewer passes, making this mode twice as fast compared to previous models. The iPF8400 is also equipped with a large 250GB hard drive, geared to increase productivity in high volume printing and streamlined workflows, while allowing for faster processing of large files as well as the ability to reprint jobs directly from the printer.

To expand printing options and capabilities, the iPF8400 printer comes bundled with a Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Digital Photo Professional, and Microsoft Office. The enhanced Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop includes a new Adjustment Pattern Setting which allows for multiples of an image to be printed at once with different colour values implemented and displayed. Gallery wraps for canvas prints can now be created using the new Gallery Wrap Feature. To improve versatility, the iPF8400 has a media configuration tool which allows customers to not only utilize existing Canon-branded media, but also with third party media. By combining Canon's technological achievements, the imagePROGRAF iPF8400 achieves consistently breathtaking, durable, and long lasting prints.
