Helpful Information on the New Canon ipf9000 Printer

By: Nicholas Friend

The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF9000 is Canon's launch into the 60" wide format printer market segment. The Canon ipf9000 serves to fill a needed void in the marketplace for a high quality, production-friendly wide format inkjet printer that is larger than 44" and still affordable. The release of the Canon ipf9000 60" printer and Canon ipf8000 44" printer began a direct attack on the already well established Epson printer market.

One of the major criticisms on Epson to date has been their reluctance, whether through choice or contractual boundary, to release an inkjet printer wider than 44". The market has been demanding such a printer for some time since the only models available were from lower quality brands such as Roland, which were slow and used old ink sets. Canon's decision to release the Canon ipf9000 immediately expressed their determination to fulfill this void in the race to establish a base of users. The release of the Canon ipf9000 should have happened years ago. Unfortunately for Canon, word on the street is that Epson is due to release a 64" wide format inkjet printer some time in July 2007 that is expected to seduce the market into forgetting that the Canon ipf9000 ever existed in the first place. We will have to wait and see.

Until then, we should analyze the Canon ipf9000 and its unique features because some very notable advancements have been made. In this article we will analyze the different features and advantages of the Canon ipf9000.
