Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leading provider of office imaging systems, ink-jet technology and digital photography equipment, has teamed with GEI Wide Format Solutions, a Visual Edge Technology Company, to introduce a new large format scanning solution for the architectural, engineering and CAD markets--the imagePROGRAF W8400D with Colortrac Scanner System. The Canon/GEI system is a complete all-in-one large format solution, incorporating a Colortrac SmartLF Scanner, Dell Dimension 5150 HT desktop computer workstation and Canon imagePROGRAF W8400D 44-inch dye-based wide format printer all housed on a Colortrac Universal Repro stand.
The imagePROGRAF W8400D with Colortrac Scanner System provides an ideal solution for scanning, archiving, printing, electronically distributing, and copying large format output. With simple operation and a suite of scanning and printing software, the imagePROGRAF W8400D with Colortrac Scanner System allows users to easily scan-to-print, scan-to-file and scan-to-e-mail large format output up to 44-inches wide. Complete with its own Dell desktop computer, scanning and HDI software, the system is a true all-in-one solution for design workflow.
The scan to print system uses Canon's 44-inch imagePROGRAF W8400D dye-based printer to deliver color performance and gradation on both plain and glossy print media. Capable of printing on media up to 0.08 inches thick, the W8400D printer is compatible with a variety of output media, and the front loading roll stock and ink allow the printer to remain in place while swapping out consumables.
The printer exhibits exceptional print speed with precise four-picoliter ink droplets for clear line drawings and technical schematics. The dye-based printer is a high-quality solution for niche large format markets including corporate graphics, CAD and architectural users, publishers, and proofing departments. The printer uses a six-color dye-based ink system with Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Light Cyan and Light Magenta inks, for accurate color reproduction.
The Colortrac SmartLF scanner 4080E is capable of scanning images up to 40-inches wide on media up to 44-inches wide, 1-inch wider than most others in its class. The Colortrac Smart LF scanner can capture images at up to 2,400 dpi for exceptional clarity when digitally archiving. The Colortrac scanner processes images at rapid speeds, scanning at up to 10.1-inches per second in monochrome and 3.36-inches per second in color at 200 dpi.
The imagePROGRAF W8400D with Colortrac Scanner System uses a Dell Dimension 5150 HT computer with Intel Pentium 4 Processor and 80 GB of hard drive space for image storage and retrieval. The 80 GB hard drive stores a number of digitally scanned large format files to reduce storage and file space of large prints and allows them to be housed in the system for quick retrieval and hardcopy output.
