Yesterday I told you about the great deal on the Cann iPF-780. Well, today I wanted to put a word in for the Canon iPF-785. Through the end of the month the iPF-785, too, is discounted $400 for another great bargain for those in need of a great CAD/Engineering printer that excels at technical documents. The main difference between the two is the iPF-785's 320GB hard drive with 32GB of buffer RAM for image processing –a big help to those printing 3D or GIS drawings– and print job management.
The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF785 36-inch large format printer builds on Canon's award winning line of 5-color printers, and provides enhancements in both hardware, and software capabilities. The iPF785 device is capable of producing an Arch D (24" x 36") print in up to 21 seconds using Economy mode, and an Arch E (33.1" x 46.8") print in up to 41 seconds! The printer has the capability of accommodating 300ml ink tanks, geared towards lowering the cost per print. The included Sub-ink tank system allows for users to use all of the ink in the tank before replacing, while also replacing the empty ink tanks on-the-fly without having to stop a job mid-print and sacrifice print quality. For increased productivity, the iPF785 printer comes with a 320GB hard drive built in, allowing for enhanced file processing, personal mailbox space, and job storage of up to 500 print jobs!
From a software perspective, the iPF785 printer comes loaded with user-friendly software solutions that are ready to be used right out of the box. Direct Print & Share, Canon's cloud-based portal solution1, is available as a download and allows for files to be uploaded, downloaded, shared and printed from almost anywhere in the world! Also downloadable is a mobile printing app, imagePROGRAF Print Utility2, allows for PDFs to be printed through use of an Apple© iPad©. The Accounting Manager software allows users to track job costs, while the Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office enables for documents created with Word, Excel or Powerpoint to be printed in large format. And to improve versatility, the iPF785 printer has a Media Configuration Tool which allows customers to optimally utilize their Canon-branded media in creating their desired output.
