An incredibly large colour spectrum is produced by the 12-Colour LUCIA EX pigment ink set, which also provides better scratch resistance and smoother gradations. The new Multi-sensor included with this printer provides improved colour 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 Colour Calibration Management System allows for colour calibration targets to be created using the iPF6450 with optional spectrophotometer and shared across all new iPFX400 12-colour 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 iPF6400 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 colour values implemented and displayed. Gallery wraps for canvas prints can now be created using the new Gallery Wrap Feature. To improve versatility, the iPF6400 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 iPF6400 is the professional's answer to superior quality large format prints.
LUCIA EX INK SET
Canon's LUCIA EX Ink set is designed for dramatic photographic expression and detailed colour reproduction for exacting proofing applications. This 12-Colour ink set offers a brilliant range of vibrant colours, smooth gradations and transitions, with incredibly fine details. This specially formulated ink also offers better scratch resistance, superb black reproduction and exceptional colour stability compared to its predecessor. Combined with the printer's technologies, the LUCIA EX inks have the ability to satisfy the demanding needs of the Photographic, Fine Art, Proofing and Graphics professionals.
The LUCIA EX Ink system excels in reproducing colours in the blue, red, purple, yellow and green spectral ranges, providing an exceptionally large colour gamut. Vibrant, rich colours with unsurpassed detail and crisp, clean monotone images make this ink set essential for incredible photo quality output.
COLOUR CALIBRATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The Colour 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 colour calibration targets created using the iPF6450 printer with optional spectrophotometer to be linked across the entire line of new 12 colour imagePROGRAF devices. A printer's administrator can monitor and manage each printer in a remote location. Linking colour calibration targets among multiple printers allows colour calibration for custom media to be performed on printers not equipped with a Spectrophotometer Unit.
This new printer includes an upgraded, built-in colour densitometer that's designed to offer even more 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 users to maintain a low average printer-to-printer colour difference. Automatic 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.
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
GALLERY WRAP FEATURE
This new creative tool can be accessed via Adobe Photoshop and allows users to easily create gallery wrap prints for framing, as well as creative options that will expand output possibilities.

Edge Lines: The area outside these lines is the area that gets folded around to the back of the canvas. (Not actually displayed or printed) .
Blue Lines: The area within these lines is the area that appears on the front surface of the canvas when mounted. (not actually printed) .

ENHANCED PRINT PLUG-IN FOR PHOTOSHOP

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 colour settings in order to choose the colour that most closely matches what you need.
