Canon Inc. announced that it will launch four new models of large-format inkjet printers in its imagePROGRAF series from late July, 2014.
The imagePROGRAF iPF785 and iPF780 feature a faster output of around 21 seconds for an A4 size print, with newly developed magenta colour ink to express vivid red and yellow and a new file output and share software—imagePROGRAF Direct Print and Share 2.0—for cloud computing systems. Both models can produce up to A0-plus size prints. The iPF785 has a larger memory capacity (320GB) HDD and a larger ink tank of 300ml. The iPF780 has a sub ink tank for refilling the ink seamlessly and can make prints from an iPAD via the app ‘imagePROGRAF Print Utility.’
The imagePROGRAF iPF685 and iPF680 can produce up to A1 size prints with a maximum speed of 25 seconds for an A1 sheet. Other features of the iPF685 are common with the iPF785; and those of iPF680 are similar to iPF780.
