The Canon Air Feeding System prevents each page from skewing for accurate ink placement, regardless of paper type. A series of openings located on top of the platen vacuum-grip the paper as it feeds through the printer. The Air Feeding system creates a printing environment that keeps a consistent height between the print head and the media being used. Variances in height can occur due to paper curl or variations in temperature and humidity. A consistent level surface leads to remarkable ink droplet accuracy and improved image quality.
The LUCIA PRO 11-color plus Chroma Optimizer ink system satisfies the demands of the most critical photographer or graphic artist. Denser droplet placement provides a broader color gamut and improved gloss uniformity for superb glossiness and anti-bronzing. Incredibly accurate color reproduction, outstanding image clarity, and enhanced detail in darker areas distinguish each print. On fine art papers, higher black density renders even the finest shadow detail, for a print that becomes a work of art.
- 11-INK SYSTEM PLUS CHROMA OPTIMIZER
Utilizing new pigment ink with modified compositions and new colors, LUCIA PRO INKS have enabled a broader color gamut and greater shadow detail reproduction in dark areas.
- LUCIA PRO INKS
- Increased density of ink on the paper improves color gamut.
- Even light reflection contributes to improved glossiness and image clarity.
- Contributes to anti-bronzing on glossy paper.
BLACK DENSITY AND DARK SHADOW AREAS:
Deep blacks, which make the image crisp, and precise gradation can be attained across all media types. On glossy media, light reflection off of a printed image is stabilized by the Chroma Optimizer and the newly formulated Photo Black ink. Overall, your images will enjoy an enhanced dynamic range.
- CORE TECHNOLOGIES
The print head, ink and image processing engine mounted on the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 provide high levels of image quality and productivity.
WIDE COLOR GAMUT:
A new ink system adopts 11-color inks and Chroma Optimizer ink. This system helps you achieve an improvement in color-reproduction, image clarity, and enhanced darker areas. It faithfully reproduces colors and dark areas crucial for printing works of art.

NO SWITCHING OF BLACK INKS:
On other printers, switching from Matte Black to Photo Black consumes a significant amount of ink and time. The imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 is designed to work seamlessly when changing media types. Matte Black and Photo Black inks have their own dedicated nozzles, so no switching is necessary. You can print on fine art paper then glossy paper with no worries, no changes, and no waste.
