Anti-clogging technology is designed to eliminate white lines for consistently high quality prints. Ink ejection conditions are precisely checked with sensors, and when a blockage is detected, another nozzle automatically provides backup and compensates to provide a smooth, even flow of ink. In addition to reducing the possibility of printing failures due to banding, this also reduces the frequency at which head cleaning is required. By reducing unnecessary head cleaning you save valuable inks.
Newly formulated inks add the power of density and dynamic range. Light reflected off of printed images is equalized by the Chroma Optimizer and the newly Formulated Photo Black ink. The PRO-1000 allows for a denser droplet placement, faithfully reproducing detailed blacks to make images crisp, and precise colour graduation with enhanced dynamic range successful. Equally impressive results are achieved on Fine Art papers.
With 11-color inks, a newly formulated blue and magenta ink, plus the Chroma Optimizer ink, produce superior printouts on which dark blue areas are clearly defined to express your printed photography with the power of nuance. Achieve a wider colour gamut and richer details in darker shadowed areas for the finest details in nightscapes and sunsets. Also change media types from glossy to fine art paper seamlessly with a dedicated nozzle for Matte Black and Photo Black.
The Canon Air Feeding System prevents each page from skewing and improves the precision of ink droplet placement. A series of openings located on top of the platen vacuum-grips the paper flat during feeding. The skew correction function guarantees that all types of paper, including thick paper, can be printed without misplacement as it is held tight to the platen with a vacuum grip, even in environments with factors of temperature and humidity.
A smarter engine enables both high-resolution and high-speed printing in one fell swoop. Witness 32,256,000 ink droplets placed on the paper per second. The high-precision control engine processes massive volumes of image data, generates the printing data, and controls optimal ink layout for spectacular colour, detail and density on high-resolution prints, at a rapid pace.A 1.28” wide print head expands the printing area by 50% so that with each movement of the print head you gain greater efficiencies and faster speeds while producing a quality of print that is remarkable by any standard.
