Canon receives two DIMA digital printer shoot-out awards at PMA 2009

The winning image for the "Inkjet 50 inches Wide or More" category was printed with the Canon imagePrograf iPF9100 large format printer on Canon-branded Heavyweight Satin, 300 gsm fine art media. The printer utilizes the Company’s twelve-color ink system featuring Canon’s proprietary Lucia pigment inks including four enhanced monochrome inks. Canon’s Lucia inks enable the imagePrograf printers to achieve smooth natural image expression for remarkable results.

The winning entry for the "Black and White, Best B&W with grayscale inks" category was printed on the Canon Pixma MP980 Photo AIO printer on Canon Photo Paper Pro Platinum. The combination of Canon’s print technology, paper and ink resulted in the award-winning print. The Pixma MP980 is the first AIO printer to include a separate gray and photo black ink, for truly neutral black-and-white photo printing, a key demand for an SLR camera user. As the flagship model of the Canon AIO printer line, the MP980 has a sleek modern styling, small footprint and curved exterior to fit the d‚cor of any home or office.
