Create stunning photographic prints with the imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 44" Professional Photographic Inkjet Printer from Canon. Able to handle media up to 44" wide and with a maximum resolution of 2400 x 1200 dpi, users will be able to create high-quality documents and graphics with sharp text at exceptional sizes. In order to deliver prints with speed and consistency the PRO-4000 has a few tricks up its sleeve, including Canon's FINE technology with a 1.28"-wide 12-channel print head, a twelve-color LUCIA PRO pigmented ink set with Chroma Optimizer, a high-precision mechanical platform, and the L-COA PRO high-speed image processing engine. This design also means that there is no switching required when working with matte black or photo black inks. Additionally, this model offers a built-in color densitometer that uses a three-color LED and condenser lens to ensure peak performance.

The PRO-4000 utilizes a Sub-Ink Tank system to squeeze every last drop out of your cartridges along with providing smooth swaps even in the midst of a print job. An integrated 320GB hard drive furthers the unit's capabilities by allowing it to work with large documents easily. For operating the device, a large 3.5" color LCD touchscreen is available and a directly available USB port permits printing from a thumb drive. Additionally, this printer has wired and wireless networking thanks to both Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity and it has USB 2.0 for a simple connection to a computer.

12-Color LUCIA PRO Ink Set

Using a twelve-color system of pigment-based inks as well as a Chroma Optimizer, this set will deliver vivid images with clear details along with enhanced gloss uniformity, improved scratch resistance, better reproduction of dark areas, and reduced graininess.

PF-10 Print Head

A PF-10 1.28"-wide print head with 18,432 nozzles and anti-clogging FINE technology allows for fast, precise printing that is checked by 27 individual sensors. For improved performance, this system uses twelve channels with twelve colors, resulting in fast print speeds and no ink switching required when working with both matte and glossy media. The print head is also wider than earlier models, allowing for the printer to only need one and achieve a more compact design.

L-COA PRO High-Speed Image Processing Engine

Utilizing three processing chips, the PRO-4000 can precisely manage large image files and control ink layout for optimal performance and high-resolution prints.

Color Calibration

Featuring an integrated color densitometer with a three-color LED and a condenser lens, users will be able to recalibrate the PRO-4000 at nearly any time to ensure consistently colored prints. The Device Management Console software furthers your abilities by enabling calibrations and checking of print statuses of up to 50 units from a remote location.

Optional Multifunction Roll System

This optional system enables a second roll of media to be loaded or to set up a bi-directional media take-up unit. The dual-roll feeding mechanism allows media of different types or sizes to be loaded at once for fast swapping or simply having two of the same rolls for high-volume jobs. A bi-directional rewinding method allows users to set up the second roll as a take-up unit and users can choose whether the printed surface is on the inside or outside of the roll.

USB Direct Printing

An accessible USB port permits the use of a thumb drive for direct printing of PDF and JPG files without the use of a computer.

Sub-Ink Tank System and Large-Capacity Cartridges

The Sub-Ink Tank System lets users squeeze every last drop of ink in the tank before needing to replace it, also enabling cartridge swaps in the middle of job without any issues. The PRO-4000 also accepts large-capacity cartridges from the PFI-1100, PFI-1300, and PFI-1700 series with capacities of 160mL, 330mL, and 700mL, respectively.

The basket can be freely adjusted as a catch basket, for flatbed stacking, and as a slope for print display.

Does this do borderless printing with a 44" and 17" roll?
Asked by: Frank
The typical approach is to use the built-in cutters to trim the edges off of the large printout as it exists the printer. Borderless printing at 17" or 44" would be a major (and unique) selling point and fantastic feature, but the manufacturer lists this printer as requiring a 0.2" (i.e. 3mm) edge on each side of the roll. Those edges are needed to grip the sheet and thus aren't printed on.
