The iPF6400 is designed for specialist photographic, fine art and proofing applications. This large format printer incorporates LUCIA EX, Canon’s innovative 12-colour pigment inkjet system with image processing technology that delivers a wide colour gamut, smooth graduations, less bronzing and highly scratch-resistant prints.
Users can rely on it for enhanced black reproduction and graduation expression in dark areas, resulting in the exceptional print quality required for photo print applications. The text and line accuracy, as well as excellent colour harmony mean that the printer is perfect for high precision proofing applications.
The iPF6400 is compatible with ICC profile-based colour management systems and will work seamlessly with third party RIP applications, supporting production, photography and proofing applications. The printer also supports a diverse range of media types.
Easy to use
A large, bright and easy to read LCD screen makes the iPF6400 easy to operate. And a range of plug-ins for Macs and PCs simplifies common tasks, such as manipulating, adjusting and proofing images, optimising their quality and adding borders. What’s more, it’s easy to set up workflows that automate many of these processes.
Maximum productivity, minimum downtime
The printer’s “hot swap” 130ml and 300ml ink tanks mean that ink cartridges can be replaced without interrupting printing, allowing for maximum productivity.
Effective cost management
It’s easy to track the cost of each job using the iPF6400’s built-in cost management software, which allows users to calculate ROI.
Added value software is provided as standard and is relevant to a range of applications from professional photography to in-house poster printing
