Three models in the Canon imagePROGRAF line of printers have been awarded the five-star “Exceptional” rating from BERTL, an independent analyst firm and test lab. BERTL tested the three units, the 44-inch iPF8300 and the 24-inch iPF6350 and iPF6300 large format printers, across 11 categories, ultimately awarding their highest possible rating for image quality, price and security.
Canon claims its imagePROGRAF line increase the available color gamut by 20% through its 12-color LUCIA EX pigment ink set. This combines with the imagePROGRAF’s two one-inch print heads, each sporting 2,560 nozzles per color for a 2400×1200 dpi resolution. The three models are also Energy Star compliant
The 11 specific BERTL test criteria are build quality, network administration, security, workflow, finish, ease of use, media handling, printing, image quality, features and price.
