Canon launches updated ColorWave and PlotWave

Print Solutions

Canon has announced the launch of its updated ColorWave and PlotWave large format printer series. Comprising three ColorWave models (3600, 3800 and 9000) and five monochrome PlotWave models (3000, 3500, 5000, 5500 and 7500), the series has been designed to support and encourage creativity in all organisations at every stage of the design process – from the visualisation of ideas, through the developmental process to final designs. Both upgraded series offer enhanced security benefits and improved ease of use.

Integrating optional finishing and scanning solutions, ColorWave and PlotWave printers now offer an all in one solution that makes the automated production of large format prints easier than ever. With a range of fully compatible stackers and folders, any printer in the series can be configured to meet specific requirements and easily produce finished documents – all on one printer. And users can now upgrade printers without the need to update finishing equipment; they can simply retrofit stackers or folders for a complete end to end, compact and productive solution.

Also compatible with both series are scanning solutions for every requirement – the Scanner Express, which can be integrated on top of the PlotWave and ColorWave printers for walk up prints, and the Scanner Professional, a standalone production scanner for maximum quality and productivity that can be integrated with one or more printers.

With Smartshield integrated printing security, the new printer series offers safe submission to protect data and user credentials when sending files to the printer. It provides safe storage, protecting print data from theft or accidental data leakage; authorisation to restrict access to confidential files, and hack prevention which ensures no one from outside the organisation can access the printer’s files.

Using ClearConnect software, the printers provide a streamlined workflow for any individual print job or complex multi-file document set. By providing active operator warnings and accurate print previews, the software also enables users to make necessary corrections before hitting print, and to submit prints with ease, from any location or device.

Designed to save time and speed up the design process, Publisher Select, part of the ClearConnect software suite, eliminates misprints and wasted materials with a ‘what you see is what your print’ preview on your computer desktop. Improving productivity, the software offers dual printer support for a range of Canon’s large format printers and has the functionality to assign specialised media templates to print jobs or individual files within a multi-file print job.
