PrintFactory and ProofMaster support Canon imagePROGRAF iPF8300S and IPF6300S large format printers
The iPF6300S, successor to the iPF6000S, and the iPF8300S have been developed to complement Canon's large format printer range. The two new models feature higher print speeds and broad workflow compatibility, as well as lowering of the total cost of ownership.
Working with high-speed printers, it is important that their speed is not held back by your RIP software. It is essential that this software allows you to not only RIP fast, but also allows you to get your jobs print-ready in time. This is where PrintFactory comes in, providing state-of-the art job preparation tools to create POS items, posters and banners in just a few clicks. Next to those preparation tools, it allows to preflight, correct and soft proof the print jobs before printing, which drastically minimizes reprints and waste. Productivity is improved through the printer's option to print in 'fast' mode, which enables the print speed to be as much as doubled, while still maintaining a level of print quality that rivals that in standard mode. This is a major advantage when producing output such as posters and point-of-sale (POS) display items, where turnaround is time-critical, This feature, in combination with the job preparation tools in PrintFactory, make the iPF6300S, iPF 8300S and PrintFactory combination a true winner.
