An extremely versatile solution, the 44” imagePROGRAF iPF8400S printer is ideal for those who need quality large format output and maximum productivity. Built for the commercial photography, signage display, reprographic and proofing markets, the iPF8400S printer delivers consistently superb results while increasing overall production. A large color spectrum is produced by the 8-Color LUCIA EX pigment ink set, which also provides scratch resistance and smooth gradations. The enhanced Multi-sensor allows for the printer to calibrate back to factory settings, and is included with this printer to help provide improved color density detection. TheColor Calibration Management System allows for color calibration targets to be created using the iPF6400S printer with optional SU-21 Spectrophotometer and shared across all new iPFX400S series 8-Color printers, while the included software allows for all printers on the network to be monitored from one central location. The iPF8400S printer is up to 40% faster than the 12-Color line of imagePROGRAF Graphic Arts printers, and achieves maximum productivity with large 330ml or 700ml ink tanks and a unique sub-ink tank system for replacing ink on-the-fly without stopping the printer. The iPF8400S printer is also equipped with a 250GB hard drive, geared to help increase productivity in high volume printing and streamlined workflows, while allowing for fast processing of large files as well as the ability to reprint jobs directly from the printer.

To expand printing options and capabilities, the iPF8400S printer comes bundled with Canon’s PosterArtist Lite software for easy poster creation, and an Accounting Manager tool that helps keep track of job cost. Also included is a Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office and a Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, which includes an Adjustment Pattern Setting that allows for multiples of an image to be printed at once with different color values implemented and displayed. Gallery wrap-ready prints can now be created using the included Gallery Wrap Feature, found in the imagePROGRAF Layout Tool. To help improve versatility, the iPF8400S printer has a media configuration tool which allows customers to not only utilize existing Canon-branded media, but also with non-Canon branded media. By combining Canon's technological achievements, the imagePROGRAF iPF8400S printer achieves consistently breathtaking, durable and long lasting prints.

LUCIA EX Ink Set:

Canon's LUCIA EX Ink set is designed for dramatic photographic expression and detailed color reproduction for exacting proofing applications. This 8-Color ink set offers a brilliant range of vibrant colors, smooth gradations and transitions, with incredibly fine details. This specially formulated ink also offers scratch resistance, superb black reproduction and exceptional color stability. Combined with the printer's technologies, the LUCIA EX inks have the ability to satisfy the demanding needs of the Commercial Photography, Signage Display, Color Proofing and Production professionals. Vibrant, rich colors with unsurpassed detail and crisp, clean monotone images make this ink set essential for incredible quality output.

Color Calibration Management System:

The Color Calibration Management Console is included for the centralized management of networked printers in a system from one easy to use software tool. This unique feature enables color calibration targets created using the iPF6400S printer with the optional SU-21 spectrophotometer to be linked across the entire line of 8-Color, imagePROGRAF iPFX400S series printers. A printer?s administrator can monitor and manage each printer in a remote location. Linking color calibration targets among multiple printers allows color calibration for custom media to be performed on printers not equipped with a Spectrophotometer Unit. This feature also gives users the ability to:
  • Remotely monitor/execute color calibrations for all iPFX400S series printers on network, as well as be able to schedule remote calibrations based on system needs.
  • Determine the media type loaded in each device on the network.
  • Determine the serial number of the printer device and other general information.
  • Obtain accounting information from each printer on the network.
  • Access the Status Monitor for each printer on the network.

Enhanced Multi-Sensor:

This printer includes an upgraded, built-in color multi-sensor that's designed to offer even more precise calibration and color matching. Using a three-color LED and a recently developed condenser lens the sensor enables accurate recalibration of the device, allowing users to maintain a low average printer-to-printer color difference. Automatic color calibration is finished quickly after a few simple steps on the printer's operation panel, or remotely via the Color Calibration Management Console software. A single color calibration performed with one type of media can be applied to Canon media in all printing modes.

Sub-ink Tank System:

Utilizing the included sub-ink tanks, the iPF8400S printer keeps some ink in reserve so that even when the physical ink tanks run out of ink, printing can continue without interruption and the tanks can be replaced on the fly.

Fast Draft Printing Mode:

The Draft Mode produces 1200 x 1200 dpi output at up to 381ft2/hr on coated and uncoated paper stocks while reducing ink consumption by 10% to 20% versus standard mode. This mode regulates the use of Photo Cyan and Photo Magenta inks to produce quality output at a lower total cost.

Fast Economy Printing:

Help reduce total ink consumption by utilizing the Economy Printing Mode for producing draft prints on select media. This feature helps increase overall speed and regulates the use of all colors to produce quick check plots while minimizing the cost per print.

250GB Hard Drive:

A built-in 250GB hard drive within the printer helps increase productivity by relieving workload from the host PC, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage and retrieval. This 250GB hard drive enables job data to be stored in protected mailboxes for easy access via web browser or at the printer for job re-printing. The embedded hard disk is ideal for medium to large workgroups to share a printer efficiently with multiple users, offering sample job storage space. To help ensure security of your files, there is a quick erase mode, high-speed mode, and a secure erase mode which meets to U.S. Department of Defense requirements (DoD5022.22-M Compliant) for erasure of disk media.
