Canon USA’s recently unveiled a trio of 11-colour plus chroma optimizer inkjet models for the large-format imagePROGRAF Series—imagePROGRAF 60-inch PRO-6600, 44-inch PRO-4600 and 24-inch PRO-2600—are designed for photography and fine art applications. The new imagePROGRAF PRO line features the newly developed LUCIA PRO II1 pigment ink designed to help improve the image quality from previous models while also enhancing resistance to light. Improved black density on art paper was achieved by changing the formulation and material of matte black ink, the colour gamut of the dark region was expanded by the adoption of a newly designed image table.

The new ink set can also work to help produce and preserve prints as a crystalline wax has been added to the ink, giving the printed surface better resistance to abrasion-caused scratches on glossy and semi-glossy media.
