The W8400D dye-ink model offers outstanding color performance and gradation on both plain and glossy print media, and complements the excellent coloration, light resistance, water resistance and color stability afforded by the pigment-ink ImagePrograf W8400Pg, released in May of this year. With the introduction of the W8400D, providing the vibrant and rich color gradation provided by dye-based inks, Canon offers customers a dye-based ink option to meet a variety of print needs.

The W8400D bundles exceptional print speed with a brand new suite of workflow software. The new W8400D dye-based printer is a cost-effective alternative to pigment ink output for niche large format markets including corporate graphics, CAD and architectural users and proofing departments.

Canon large format printer - PosterArtist 1.1
Canon also provides the new PosterArtist version 1.1, software that empowers users of all levels to create and design professional posters, banners and signage with extreme ease. The program includes an extensive library of royalty-free images and clip-art, as well as the ability to import images in JPEG, TIFF, and bitmap (.bmp) file format. Other features include automatic object layout and size adjustment for various output sizes, professionally designed templates to simplify poster creation, and opacity blends for increased design flexibility. New features in version 1.1 include a wider selection of fonts, enhanced editing functions, and a convenient My Template function allowing users to save posters they have created as templates, which can be reused on later projects. Great for corporate event signage and internal communication departs, PosterArtist allows for the fast easy creation of professional quality signage.

This program provides professional-grade editing tools, such as redeye elimination, skin tone improvement, moire removal, and automatic borderless cropping.

Canon W8400D printer - 4x higher resolution
The ImagePrograf W8400D uses the same image controller as the pigment ink ImagePrograf W8400Pg, allowing for 4x higher resolution than predecessor models without sacrificing speed. By utilizing a single chip design (SOC--System On Chip), the image processing is significantly faster, eliminating the need for two separate memories access - CPU and image processing ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit). In addition, the memory itself has been upgraded to DDR SDRAM (Double Data Rate SDRAM) to further speed up the printing process. Combined with a faster image processing algorithm, the new system is able to retain Canon's printing speed advantage - even with an increase in processed data.
