The PIXMA Pro-1 13-inch desktop printer is a completely new design full of improvements and a host of new features. Small enough to fit on most desktops, it targets the critical photographer or graphic artist looking for outstanding print longevity and superb color reproduction. It's ideal for top-quality 8x10, letter-size, 11x14, and 13x19-inch prints.
An entirely new 12-color pigment ink system (6 color, 5 monochrome, 1 Chroma Optimizer) delivers a significantly expanded color gamut, especially in the red, magenta and yellow regions. With both Photo Black and Matte Black inks installed at the same time, the PIXMA Pro-1 accommodates a wide range of photographic media without any ink waste. The addition of three gray inks brings true professional quality to black and white photo printing with exceptionally smooth and natural tonal gradations.
A new print head design separates the print head from the ink tank systems, making the PIXMA Pro-1 nearly twice as fast as the previous pigment-based PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II, with the ability to print a 13x19" in just over 4 minutes. New 36ml ink tanks – with 2.5x the capacity of those used in the PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II – result in less frequent ink tank replacement and higher productivity.
- New Chroma Optimizer is a clear coat "ink" that is applied over the printed image, filling in surface irregularities and resulting in improved surface reflection and uniform glossiness, enhanced black density, expanded color gamut and reduced bronzing.
- "Mist Reduction System" circulates air internally, keeping prints and the printer itself pristine and free of ink haze.
- First PIXMA Pro printer to feature an Ethernet port, enabling multiple computers on a local network to share the same printer – an ideal situation for small businesses and education institutions.
