The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF785 36-inch large format printer builds on Canon's award winning line of 5-color printers, and provides enhancements in both hardware, and software capabilities. The iPF785 device is capable of producing an Arch D (24" x 36") print in up to 21 seconds using Economy mode, and an Arch E (33.1" x 46.8") print in up to 41 seconds! The printer has the capability of accommodating 300ml ink tanks, geared towards lowering the cost per print. The included Sub-ink tank system allows for users to use all of the ink in the tank before replacing, while also replacing the empty ink tanks on-the-fly without having to stop a job mid-print and sacrifice print quality. For increased productivity, the iPF785 printer comes with a 320GB hard drive built in, allowing for enhanced file processing, personal mailbox space, and job storage of up to 500 print jobs!
From a software perspective, the iPF785 printer comes loaded with user-friendly software solutions that are ready to be used right out of the box. Direct Print & Share, Canon's cloud-based portal solution1, is available as a download and allows for files to be uploaded, downloaded, shared and printed from almost anywhere in the world! Also downloadable is a mobile printing app, imagePROGRAF Print Utility2, allows for PDFs to be printed through use of an Apple© iPad©. The Accounting Manager software allows users to track job costs, while the Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office enables for documents created with Word, Excel or Powerpoint to be printed in large format. And to improve versatility, the iPF785 printer has a Media Configuration Tool which allows customers to optimally utilize their Canon-branded media in creating their desired output.
Productivity is maintained in networked environments thanks to the Media Mismatch function. When a job is sent to print with a different media to that which is loaded, the user is informed and given the option to cancel it, print it anyway or change the media. In the meantime, the iPF785 prints other jobs in the queue. A built in accounting function allows tracking of the cost per print enabling you to view the data through the printer driver. Economy mode can be selected which uses less ink ideal when printing draft documents. Canon’s eMaintenance software automatically detects and manages mechanical problems and low ink levels linking directly to Canon service. Canon’s 5-colour dye-and-pigment ink system produces vivid colours and the sharpest, thinnest lines. With an accuracy of +/- 0.1% and a minimum line width of 0.02mm, precision is guaranteed. Images are rendered at 2,400 x 1200 dpi for maximum impact from super-fine print heads using 15,360 nozzles. With increased security by improving administrative functionality on the user interface, unauthorised use of the printer and information leaks are minimised through restricted access and supporting print log management in network environments the iPF785 is an ideal solution for large corporations.
