Canon imagePROGRAF iPF5100 Large Format Printer
Canon imagePROGRAF announces yet another breakthrough in large format printing solutions. With the imagePROGRAF iPF5100 Large Format Printer, brilliant color, sophisticated print-head technology, and high speed output are all 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 color professional looking for striking, full-bleed color output with strength in paper handling and exceptional speed in output.

The iPF5100 printer is engineered to produce colors, fine details, and subtle expressions required for some of the most challenging color 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 the printer's media types. The result, a more predictable printing platform where results can be consistently achieved. The 12-color pigment ink system with LUCIA inks offers excellent color fastness and stability with a remarkably wide color gamut. The new ink formulation for Black, Matte Black, Gray and Photo Gray reduces bronzing, while providing stronger ink adhesion to the print media, resulting in better scratch resistance without any additional protection. 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.

12 Color Pigment Ink System - New LUCIA inks
The iPF5100 printer's ink set is comprised of 12 colors: four standard process colors with Photo Cyan and Photo Magenta; plus Red, Green, and Blue; Matte Black, Gray, and Photo Gray. This unique combination creates a broad color pallet and delivers exceptional print results. The iPF5100 printer's LUCIA ink is specially formulated to reduce graininess and bronzing and resist scratching and fading.

Photo Black, Matte Black, Gray and Photo Gray optimize black ink density for exceptional monochrome photo-quality output. Based on the type of ink being used, the iPF5100 printer automatically matches the correct black ink to achieve the best print results.

Built-in Calibration
The iPF5100 printer is equipped with the ability to recalibrate itself to the original optimal factory settings and apply any necessary adjustments across the printers. At the same time, this creates a more stable, predictable printing platform on which superior results can be consistently achieved. The system has built-in calibration sensors that accurately detect variation in print heads and measures the density levels of the inks and makes necessary adjustments to return calibration to the original factory settings.

Print Head - PF 03 - Dual print head system
Engineered for speed and advanced image production, the iPF5100 boasts Canon's dual print head system to lay down ink with unprecedented speed and accuracy. Unlike conventional printers with a single print head, the iPF5100 uses two high-precision, high density print heads with a total of 30,720 nozzles. It lays down precise 4 picoliter-size ink droplets to produce sharp detail and excellent image quality.

The superfine 4 picoliter-size droplets produce delicate color gradations and high-definition. The twin lines of nozzles on the new print heads enable the iPF5100 to minimize the number of printing passes and still maintain print quality. The two 1-inch iPF series print heads, each with 6 colors with 2,560 nozzles per color. That's a total of 30,720 nozzles. More nozzles mean more ink is ejected with every pass of the print head, no matter what print mode or media. It gives new meaning to "high-speed output".

L-COA Controller - New Print Controller
Like other powerful Canon systems, the IPF5100 is built around the innovative L-COA (Large Format printer Common Architecture) processor. When it comes to speed and accuracy, the L-COA processor is in a league of its own. By intelligently processing print data and directing the high precision, high-density print heads to deposit ink, the system ensures image clarity and color accuracy, even for complex graphics and color-rich photographic images. Combined with Canon's dual print head design and the most ink nozzles per color in the industry, the L-COA controller helps achieve phenomenal print speeds.

Print Plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® and Digital Photo Professional - An export print module These export modules allow users to directly process and print RAW image files from DPP or Adobe Photoshop. These plug-ins are export modules that bypass the operating systems dependent print driver, allowing processing of 16-bit RGB images directly, which dramatically increases gradations and as a result, overall image quality.

Printer Driver 2007
The imagePROGRAF printer driver works with both Windows® and Macintosh® operating systems offering exceptional, high quality prints through easy usability and accurate color. The printer driver incorporates existing imagePROGRAF features along with new, easy to use functions. The monochrome photo mode produces neutral, high quality monochrome images with the primary use of the Black, Gray and Photo Gray inks. This mode helps to ensure minimal shifts in color that are commonly caused by the use of color inks in black and white prints, thus outputting neutral tones with smooth gradation. Another easy to use feature is the free layout feature, which allows for custom nesting of separate images and documents.
