The 44-inch imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 printer is designed to exceed expectations for image quality and colour consistency in a large format printer. The use of new a 1.28-inch wide 12-channel integrated compact print head, LUCIA PRO ink set plus Chroma Optimizer, a high-precision mechanical platform and the L-COA PRO high-speed image processing engine achieves a balance between high-speed printing and exceptional print quality.
These unique Canon technologies and innovations establish the foundation for an ultra-high quality photography imaging solution that is available only from Canon. Powered by a Canon-to-Canon workflow that links images captured with an EOS Digital Camera and printed on an imagePROGRAF PRO Series printer, the result is a solution that delivers prints that capture the moment and emotion of the original image. The overwhelmingly high print quality produced by this input to output solution is called Crystal Fidelity.

LUCIA PRO Ink Set
The new LUCIA PRO ink set adopts newly formulated 11-colour pigment inks and a Chroma Optimizer. This system helps you achieve fantastic colour reproduction, image clarity, and enhanced darker areas. It faithfully reproduces colours and dark areas crucial for printing works of art. The blue and magenta inks will help recreate the finest details when printing nightscapes and sunsets. A first for the Canon large format printers is the addition of a Chroma Optimizer. Used when printing on glossy and semi-glossy paper, this acts as a clear coat, improving colour performance and gloss characteristics enriching the dark areas of a print. This new ink set helps: Enhance gloss uniformity, improve scratch resistance, enhance dark area reproduction, reduce graininess.
PF-10 Print Head
The PF-10 print head with anti-clogging FINE technology generates fast print speeds and reduces the possibility of clogging. Ink ejection conditions are precisely checked by 27 sensors, and if a clog is detected, another nozzle will automatically provide back-up.
L-COA PRO High-Speed Image Processing Engine
The imagePROGRAF printers are powered by the L-COA PRO high-speed image processing engine. With three new processing chips, this high-precision control engine performs the processing of massive image data, and controls the optimal ink layout that produces high resolution prints.
The colour calibration function is designed to produce consistent colour reproduction. This new printer includes an upgraded, built-in colour densitometer that offers precise calibration and colour matching. Using a three-colour LED and a newly developed condenser lens the sensor enables accurate recalibration of the device, allowing you to maintain a low average printer-to-printer colour difference. The colour calibration is finished quickly after a few simple steps on the printer’s operation panel. A single colour calibration performed with one type of media can be applied to media in all printing modes. The Device Management Console software, ideal for fleet management, lets you perform colour calibrations remotely. This software lets you monitor the printer status of up to 50 units from any location in the world, be notified via email when an error has occurred, or check the amount of ink left in the printers without ever having to leave the comfort of your desk.
High Precision Mechanical Platform
The newly developed unibody structure provides a platform for stable print head scanning which allows for precise ink drop placement.
Multifunction Roll System
The optional dual purpose Multi-Function Roll can act as a two roll media system during the day when production is high and become a bi-directional Take-up unit at night when large, unattended prints are running.
Print Studio PRO Software
Creating large format prints is now easier with the introduction of Print Studio PRO for imagePROGRAF large format printers. This software offers features that streamline your printing workflow. Compatible with Canon Digital Photo Professional® software, Adobe Photoshop® software, Adobe Lightroom® software and Adobe Photoshop Elements®, Print Studio PRO offers versatility never before seen with Canon Large Format printing.

High Capacity Ink Tanks
Available in 160ml, 330ml, and 700ml ink tanks, you have the flexibility to purchase ink based on the colour frequency at which you print.
Quick Utility Toolbox
Quick Utility Toolbox is a portal to where all of the Canon printer software and tools can be accessed.
In today's printing environment, it is more important than ever to understand how much ink and media each print job is costing your business. Both Mac® and Microsoft® compatible, Accounting Manager serves as a powerful feature, used for accurately managing your print costs. With the Accounting Manager feature you can track how much ink and paper is being consumed when printing in large format of up to 50 printers! Each individual ink tank can have its own cost associated to it, as well as a variety of different paper types. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on your own "Cost of Goods". The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel so the data can be used for billing purposes. This feature will allow you to determine the cost of each print based on your actual cost. Features include: job Cost (ink, Media and variable cost inputted by user) ink consumed per job,* media consumed per job, job completion time and more.
Sub-Ink Tank System
The Sub-Ink Tank System allows all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping eliminate any wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced on-the-fly without stopping the printer. This is extremely useful during your long print jobs.
320 GB Hard Drive
A built-in 320 GB hard drive within the printer increases productivity by relieving workload from the host Mac or PC, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage and retrieval. This 320 GB 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.
