24-inch wide prints
If you need to produce up to A1 prints, the iPF6300 is the perfect choice. With its ability to print on roll paper up to 24 inches wide, and also able to produce borderless prints to the full width of the roll paper, you can really make your images and posters stand out.
12 ink tanks
Using 12 ink tanks offers a much greater colour gamut than is possible with fewer ink colours – the addition of primary red, green and blue ink tanks makes reproducing these difficult colours much easier. The increased number of colours also makes sure that your ink tanks last longer because there is less colour mixing required to achieve certain colours and tones, so your ink is not wasted and your running costs are reduced.
Wide range of media options
The media feed options provide a large range of print media width possibilities, from 0.07mm up to 1.5mm thick substrates. The creativity of paper choice is therefore not limited allowing you to select the most appropriate media to show off your images, from high gloss to backlit film, fine art rag and canvas.
Achieving accurate print colours can prove difficult, but the iPF6300 has a built-in colour calibration system to achieve excellent results from the first print to the last. It avoids the trial-and-error process of colour matching. Once calibrated, the iPF6300 will adjust the ink output to suit the media being used for that print to ensure optimum ink usage each time.
Lightfast for 100 years
Using Canon paper and inks, the iPF6300 system will produce vibrant prints which are guaranteed to be unaffected by light for up to 100 years.
The iPF6300 provides excellent compatibility with ICC profile-based colour management systems (CMS). It is also designed to work seamlessly with many third party RIP vendors, supporting photographic applications. For maximum versatility, a wide variety of media types are also supported.
Simple cost management
One of the advantages of bringing your printing in-house is the ability to reduce print costs by avoiding the use of expensive third party companies. Built-in cost management software makes it easy to track the cost of each print produced and enables ROI calculations to be made over time.
Suitable for use in small or large photo studios, or in a home office, the iPF6300 features both USB and Ethernet connections to enable it to be set as a network printer if required.
The iPF6300 comes with additional software to enhance the connectivity and capability of your large format print environment. This includes a Plug-In for Photoshop and Digital Photo Professional, as well as Digital Photo Front Access, that's ideal for viewing your images and assigning to an application.
Two 1-inch print heads
Using two 1-inch wide print heads, the iPF6300 can eject ink from 30,720 nozzles at a time. Each ink droplet is formed of four picolitres of ink to produce very fine dots on the print media, resulting in increase print resolution and smoother colour gradation. The large print heads contribute to the rapid print speeds achieved by the iPF6300, by allowing larger areas of an image to be produced at any given time.
LUCIA EX pigment ink
The LUCIA EX pigment inks used in the iPF6300 combine the results achieved with dye-based inks with the durability and weather resistance of a pigment ink. In addition to the standard CMY ink colours, the LUCIA EX ink sets include complimentary RGB colours as well as two shades of grey ink and two different black inks – one for glossy paper printing and one for matte paper printing. The use of these 12 ink tanks enables a much increased colour gamut and provides the ability to achieve vivid colours on a wide variety of media from glossy paper to canvas.
This new ink technology is linked to new image processing systems to deliver smoother gradations, reduced bronzing and highly durable prints. The two grey ink tanks and two black ink tanks ensure that monochrome images are produce with exceptional detail and tonal range from shadows through to highlights on glossy and matte media alike.
