Office and Graphics business printer i6500 introduced by Canon Europe
The Bubble Jet i6500 is a top quality, wide format, A3+ colour printer, designed to deal with high quality and specialist business print requirements. The printer offers superb print quality and maximum productivity without compromise. The i6500's 4800 x 1200dpi resolution means that more ink can be placed on the paper for better colour range and photo quality. Greater image definition makes the i6500 ideal for discerning professional users. The Bubble Jet i6500 produces high print quality by taking full advantage of Canon's advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology to deliver microscopic 5 picolitre ink droplets on to the paper accurately and consistently in all print modes. This allows the i6500 to deliver fine detail and excellent tonal reproduction both on plain paper and special media. Canon's High Colour and pigment black inks produce documents with excellent rich black print and colour photos that are extremely accurate and vibrant. Capable of up to 17 A4 pages per minute in mono and up to 12ppm A4 for colour documents, this printer is capable of handling heavy workloads. The Bubble Jet i6500 is also capable of fast borderless printing in A3, A3+, A4, 4'x6' and 5'x7' formats.
With the addition of the PowerRIP 2000 PostScript Raster Image Processor from iProof, the i6500 provides a highly competitive professional quality proofing solution that allows graphic artists to achieve perfectly accurate colour proofs. Reduced total cost of ownership is achieved by Canon's low waste, cost effective Single Ink technology that offers separate ink tanks for each colour. These individual ink reservoirs can be independently replaced when they are completely empty unlike printers that use combined colour cartridges where unused ink may be wasted when one colour runs out. Simple yet accurate ink level detection hardware stops a print job from starting if there is insufficient ink of any colour to complete the job.
