Collaborating with Photographer Robert Farber, Canon to Demonstrate Artistic Capabilities of Large Format and Photo Inkjet Printer Lineups
MELVILLE, N.Y. – First-time sponsor of Art Miami, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will showcase its range of printing solutions for the fine arts industry at CONTEXT December 3 - 8 at the Midtown Miami complex. One of the most important annual contemporary art events in the United States, Art Miami showcases the best available artworks of the 20th and 21st centuries in collaboration with 125 of the world's most respected galleries. Additionally, Art Miami's sister fair CONTEXT is dedicated to the development and reinforcement of emerging and mid-career, cutting-edge artists.
At the Canon booth #E13, award-winning photographer Robert Farber will showcase a collage of his most impressive images and share insights and personal experiences for working with the output devices. Show attendees can interact with Canon's latest artistic printing solutions - including the imagePROGRAF iPF6450 printer, which features enhanced color management capabilities and the PIXMA PRO-1 printer - a powerful, high-quality professional inkjet printer that produces stunning color prints and dynamic black-and-white images.
"As photographers, we look to tell a story or convey a message through the power of an image," said photographer Robert Farber. "Canon's imagePROGRAF and PIXMA PRO printers help showcase this story by delivering high-quality, archival imaging capabilities and creative applications that can enhance moments we've captured through our lens. I'm looking forward to engaging with other professionals at Art Miami to hear some of their latest inspirations and discuss the potential that lies with Canon's fine art printers."
Designed for professionals in the graphic, fine art and photography markets, the imagePROGRAF iPF6450 printer features Canon's LUCIA EX pigment ink set - a system that produces a dynamic color spectrum while providing better scratch resistance and smoother gradations from previous models. The new multi-sensor included with this printer provides outstanding color-density detection and allows for full calibration. In addition, the Color Calibration Management Console equipped in this devices, allows users to easily execute and monitor the calibration status of multiple printers on a network from one PC.
Taking print quality and accuracy to a whole new level, Canon's PIXMA PRO-1 printer delivers stunning, high-quality output thanks to its 12-ink system - five of which are monochrome. The FINE Print Head helps to deliver consistent, superb results that professional photographers demand. These 12 inks increase the color gamut in all directions so color prints are rich and dynamic, while black-and-white images register depth and dramatic expression. Additionally, skin-tone reproduction has been improved to provide a more natural look, eliminating the magenta cast occasionally found when printing portraits.
