Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6400 24-inch large format printer was designed for professionals in the graphic fine art photography and proofing markets that seek the highest possible standards for quality-control and image reproduction.
An incredibly large color spectrum is produced by the 12-Color LUCIA EX pigment ink set which also provides better scratch resistance and smoother gradations.
The new Multi-sensor included with this printer provides improved color density detection and allows for a full calibration to be completed within 15 minutes with the ability to use non-Canon branded media. A new Color Calibration Management System allows for color calibration targets to be created using the iPF6400 with optional spectrophotometer and shared across all new iPFX400 12-color printers and the included software allows for all printers on the network to be monitored from one central location.
The printer supports ink tank sizes of 130ml and for the first time 300ml and the new sub-ink tank keeps some ink in reserve to allow for tanks to be changed without interrupting a print. In highest print mode the order of ink application and layering is optimized to maintain the highest print quality with fewer passes making this mode twice as fast compared to previous models.
To expand printing options and capabilities the printer comes bundled with a Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop Digital Photo Professional and Microsoft Office. The enhanced Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop includes a new Adjustment Pattern Setting which allows for multiples of an image to be printed at once with different color values implemented and displayed. Gallery wraps for canvas prints can now be created using the new Gallery Wrap Feature.
To improve versatility this model has a media configuration tool which allows customers to not only utilize existing Canon-branded media but also with third party media. Designed for efficiency reliability and above all quality the imagePROGRAF is the professional answer to superior quality large format prints.

◊ 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 iPF6400 printer with optional spectrophotometer to be linked across the entire line of new 12 color imagePROGRAF devices. 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.
◊ New Multi-Sensor
This new printer includes an upgraded built-in color densitometer that`s designed to offer even more precise calibration and color matching. Using a three-color LED and a newly 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. A single color calibration performed with one type of media can be applied to media in all printing modes.
◊ High Speed Printing with Fewer Passes
In highest print mode the order of ink application and layering is optimized to maintain the highest print quality with fewer passes making this mode twice as fast compared to previous models. In high and standard print modes print density within a single pass of the heads is optimized to reduce unevenness and support fewer passes as well.
◊ New Tint and Tone Adjustments
The new tint and tone controls over the four monochromatic shades allow a user to create even more expressive blacks with smoother gradations especially in dark areas. Found in both the Printer Driver and Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop the new tone control in the monochrome photo mode includes adjustments for:
Medium Hard Tone
Strong Hard Tone
A tint control has also been added to the Print Plug-in for Photoshop. This new option gives users the ability to affect the white space on an image. By adding monochromatic ink to an images` white space the user can improve gloss control in a black and white image allowing them greater control on how their final printed output will appear.
◊ Large Ink Tank Capacity
The iPF6400 supports 130 ml ink tank sizes and offers an option for large 300 ml ink tanks. Ink tank replacement becomes less frequent and users with higher printing volumes can enjoy greater productivity.
◊ Sub Ink Tank System
An ink tank system designed for uninterrupted printing even during tank replacement that has already been featured on the current 44 and 60 inch models is now available on a 24 inch 12-Color printer for the first time. The iPF6400 keeps some ink in reserve in its sub ink tanks so that even when the tanks themselves run out of ink printing can continue without interruption and the tanks can be replaced on the fly.
◊ Gigabit Ethernet Support
Fast data transfer will help exceptionally high measures of productivity.
◊ Enhanced Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop
This export module allows 16-bit image processing preserving the expanded color spectrum and high gradation of the file. The Print plug-in also reduces the possibility of incorrect settings by providing an integrated interface for print settings in Photoshop and the printer driver enabling efficient production.
The new Adjustment Pattern Setting feature allows for multiples of an image to be printed with different color settings in order to choose the color that most closely matches what you need.
The following new or enhanced features are provided in the Print Plug-In for Photoshop:
Adjustment Pattern Setting
