5 Colour Reactive Ink System

The Reactive ink system consists of four highly colourfast dye colour inks and two channels of matte black pigment ink. Doubling the matte black is used for high-speed printing of line drawings and text-oriented office documents. When printing, four of the colours may be applied at the same time, since matte black or black is automatically selected based on the media type selected in the printer driver. Matte black will be used when printing on plain or matte media whereas the dye-based black will be used when printing on coated or glossy paper. The unique reactive ink formulation also provides improved resistance against scratches and marks when compared to conventional dye inks.

Multiple Media Options

1. Roll
2. Cassette
3. Manual Front Feed
4. Manual Top Feed

With the iPF610 all media loading can be accessed from the front of the printer; there is no necessity for the user to go behind the printer in order to load paper. For ease of use, an automatic media switching feature has been added, keeping the workflow speed on par with the printer. Media switching is done within the printer driver and doesn't require the user to physically go to the printer to make a change. Its manual top-feeding design improves performance, while a refined printing sequence delivers accelerated throughput overall. The iPF610 supports a media thickness of up to 1.5mm through the front manual feed.

HDI Driver

With the Canon HDI Driver, the driver creates a vector graphical representation of the printed data. Here points are defined and a curved line is calculated mathematically in order to achieve precision. The HDI Driver creates a graphically accurate drawing of the printed data.

High Density Print-Head PF-03

Engineered for speed and advanced image production, the iPF610 boasts Canon's latest print-head technology to lay down ink with unprecedented speed and accuracy. The iPF610 uses a high-precision, high-density print head with a total of 15,360 nozzles to lay down 4 picoliter-size ink droplets to produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The superfine 4 picoliter-size droplets produce delicate colour gradations and high-definition. The twin lines of nozzles on the print head enable the iPF610 to minimize the number of printing passes and still maintain print quality. More nozzles mean more ink is ejected with every pass of the print head, no matter what print mode or media. It gives new meaning to "high-speed output."

Digital Photo Front-Access

Digital Photo Front-Access has been developed by Canon as a utility to import images from a camera, memory card, USB, etc. and incorporate them into software applications such as PosterArtist and Photoshop.

1. Auto image retouching
2. Ability to open in PosterArtist and Photoshop
3. Support for JPEG images
4. Simple configuration of print settings by means of the printer driver
