The Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 is a 17" Inkjet Photo Printer that was designed for the photographer from the outside in. From the L-Series signature thin red line that's featured on the printer to the expanded color gamut and black density to produce an image truer to what's taken with your camera...this new printer is equally obsessed as the photographer using it.

New Ink Technology
The new LUCIA PRO Ink Set of the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO 1000 Printer contains 11 ink cartridges and one chroma optimizer. The new ink set includes blue, red, photo black, matte black and magenta. Auto-switching between matte and photo black inks allows for less ink waste due to switches in media. The PRO-1000 Printer has an easy to replace maintenance cartridge which is sold separately.
- 4 picoliter droplet size
- 2400x1200 Max Dots per Inch (dpi)
- Optimizer for high quality images
- Less waste with no black switching
- Large 80ml capacity ink cartridges
Air Feeding System
The Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 has an air-feeding system that allows for paper guidance. This means no more misalignment or offset prints. The Canon Air Feeding System prevents each page from skewing for accurate ink placement, regardless of paper type.
A series of openings located on top of the platen vacuum-grip the paper as it feeds through the printer. The Air Feeding system creates a printing environment that keeps a consistent height between the print head and the media being used. Variances in height can occur due to paper curl or variations in temperature and humidity. A consistent level surface leads to remarkable ink droplet accuracy and improved image quality.
The Canon PRO-1000 Printer can print a 17"x22" cut sheet in color with a border in just 4 minutes and 10 seconds. A2 full color prints are possible in just 6 minutes.
Device & Accounting Management Software
If you run a lab at a school or print shop, the device management and accounting software will be essential to running your shop more efficiently. The device management system of the PRO 1000 allows for up to 60 printers to be managed remotely while accounting software allows you to figure cost per prints an ink usage.

Key Features & Overview of Technology
The FINE print head institutes a tubular ink delivery system. This generates faster print speeds and reduces the possibility of clogging. Additionally, ink ejection conditions are precisely checked with sensors, and if a clog is detected, another nozzle automatically provides backup. In addition to preventing wasted prints due to clogging, this also reduces the frequency of which nozzle cleaning is required.
The Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 has been engineered with 18,432 nozzles and sensors that continuously monitor status and deliver optimum results.
AIR FEEDING SYSTEM:
The Canon Air Feeding System prevents each page from skewing for accurate ink placement, regardless of paper type. A series of openings located on top of the platen vacuum-grip the paper as it feeds through the printer. The Air Feeding system creates a printing environment that keeps a consistent height between the print head and the media being used. Variances in height can occur due to paper curl or variations in temperature and humidity. A consistent level surface leads to remarkable ink droplet accuracy and improved image quality.
Skew Correction function guarantees that all types of paper, including thick fine art type papers, can be fed without the need for reprints.
LUCIA PRO INK SYSTEM:
The LUCIA PRO 11-color plus Chroma Optimizer ink system satisfies the demands of the most critical photographer or graphic artist. Denser droplet placement provides a broader color gamut and improved gloss uniformity for superb glossiness and anti-bronzing. Incredibly accurate color reproduction, outstanding image clarity, and enhanced detail in darker areas distinguish each print. On fine art papers, higher black density renders even the finest shadow detail, for a print that becomes a work of art. Colors are not lost in shadows as the ink technology of the PRO-1000 keeps black ink placement from showing as crushed in prints. This means prints are more true to the actual image being reproduced.
11-INK SYSTEM PLUS CHROMA OPTIMIZER
Utilizing new pigment ink with modified compositions and new colors, LUCIA PRO INKS have enabled a broader color gamut and greater shadow detail reproduction in dark areas. Colors are not lost in shadow detail, nor are black areas overtly black - keeping attention to detail.
CANON LUCIA PRO INKS
• Increased density of ink on the paper improves color gamut.
• Even light reflection contributes to improved glossiness and image clarity.
• Contributes to anti-bronzing on glossy paper.
BLACK DENSITY AND DARK SHADOW AREAS:
Deep blacks, which make the image crisp, and precise gradation can be attained across all media types. On glossy media, light reflection off of a printed image is stabilized by the Chroma Optimizer and the newly formulated Photo Black ink. Overall, your images will enjoy an enhanced dynamic range.
The print head, ink and image processing engine mounted on the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 provide high levels of image quality and productivity.
WIDE COLOR GAMUT:
The PRO-1000's new ink system adopts 11-color inks and Chroma Optimizer ink. This system helps you achieve an improvement in color-reproduction, image clarity, and enhanced darker areas. It faithfully reproduces colors and dark areas crucial for printing works of art. The newly formulated blue and magenta inks will help recreate the finest details when printing nightscapes and sunsets.
NO SWITCHING OF BLACK INKS:
On other printers, switching from Matte Black to Photo Black consumes a significant amount of ink and time. The imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 is designed to work seamlessly when changing media types. Matte Black and Photo Black inks have their own dedicated nozzles, so no switching is necessary. You can print on fine art paper then glossy paper with no worries, no changes, and no waste.
FAST PHOTO PRINTING:
At the heart of the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 is a 1.28" wide print head. Expanding the printing area by 50% with each movement of the print head, print speeds are drastically improved. This increases your productivity through efficient high-speed printing.
L-COA PRO PROCESSOR:
This high-precision control engine performs the high-speed processing of massive volumes of image data, generates the printing data, and controls the optimal ink layout for the purpose of achieving high resolution prints. It represents the brain of the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 Printer.
