Canon USA Announces New Large-Format imagePROGRAF Inkjet Printer


For professionals who want sharp, brilliant, and obsessively beautiful prints that they can share with the world, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, announced recently its latest professional large-format inkjet printer: the imagePROGRAF PRO-6000. At 60 inches wide, the imagePROGRAF PRO-6000 printer is the largest 12-ink printer on the market today.

The PRO-6000 expands the PRO Series models offered from 17 inches to 60 inches wide, giving users the ability to own multiple sized printers all with the same print head, ink, and image processor, helping to ensure the same high quality across the line. As with previous models, the PRO-6000 device’s sleek design emphasizes the link with Canon’s EOS digital cameras and red-line “L-series lens.” Highlights that set this model apart from the crowd include its 60-inch print width, the ability to feed from the only standard Multifunction Roll System in its class, and a 12-channel system, including Chroma Optimizer, that offers spectacular image quality for the fine art and photographic markets.

“With the introduction of our largest model, the imagePROGRAF PRO-6000, we round out our full line of high quality PRO Series printers,” says Toyotsugu Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Our PRO Series now offers an expansive lineup of large-format inkjet solutions and sizes for a broad range of applications in the photo, fine art, proofing, and graphics market segments.”

Designed to meet the needs of photo professionals and graphic artists, the imagePROGRAF PRO-6000 provides users with Canon’s input-to-output photo printing support, known as Crystal-fidelity. This solution allows users to obtain a print quality that accurately expresses the structure, clarity, and texture of photos shot using Canon EOS DSLR cameras. The printer offers the ability to print on various media, such as glossy, matte, and fine art textured paper. The imagePROGRAF PRO-6000 printer has an MSRP of $11,995.
