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. 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.
