Building on the success of the previous PRO Series, these new printers feature a number of new innovations that will improve the end user experience. Users for both the 8-color S-series and the flagship 11-color printers will benefit from the “First of its kind” intelligent automatic media feeding technology Canon built into these devices. Innovation included in these models that will help users from the Production printing market to the Fine Art user include:
- Intelligent media handling
- Enhanced security features
- Borderless printing on all media widths
- Operational design improvements
- Creative & Workflow software
Users of both the 8-color and 11-color models will be able to take advantage of the unique advantages these printers bring to the aqueous inkjet market. The 8-color series aimed at print service providers, print-for-pays, signage, corporate centralized reproduction departments (CRDs), and other higher volume users, will benefit from the increased speed compared to the previous generation. All of the new models have the ability to print borderless on all standard and custom widths, a feature other competitors printers lack. Built with an intuitive 4.3-inch electrostatic touch-screen operation panel, the same technology used in smart phones, this series provides users with better operability and visibility.
The time saving intelligent media loading system allows the operator to move away after placing the roll in the printer without feeding the roll paper or selecting the media type. The media is automatically fed and transported over the platen, the multi-sensor built into the printer measures the surface reflectance and media thickness to identify the media type. These two measurements are used together with the database of pre-registered media in the printer and the loaded roll media type is determined by a learning function that uses the printer usage history data. The accuracy of the automatic media type detection is enhanced by repeated use of the printer. The standard, built-in Multi-sensor enables easy and economical color calibration for consistent color reproduction from print to print as well as from printer to printer, a feature you need to pay extra for with the competition.
With the Device Management Console software, users can realize centralized status and color management of multiple printers. Additionally, the series is developed with advanced security features, including support of secure PIN printing to protect data and increased administrative control of end-user printing. Through these new solutions, users now have the ability to turn off the Chroma Optimizer per media type, allowing more creative control of the printing process.
The new PRO Series also supports a wide variety of software as standard to assist simple, efficient printing of photos, posters, graphics, and more to increase the efficiency of large-format printing environments. Professional Print & Layout newly supports auto nesting and achieves an efficient workflow for printing photos with high print quality. Free available software packages include:
- Professional Print & Layout

- Accounting Manager (PC Only)
