Canon launches updated ColorWave and PlotWave printer series

Canon ColorWave and PlotWave series

Canon U.S.A. has introduced its updated ColorWave and PlotWave large format printer series, comprising two ColorWave models (3600, 3800) and five monochrome PlotWave models (3000, 3500, 5000, 5500 and 7500).

“With our long heritage in the large format printing market, Canon is dedicated to continuously developing innovative technology to support our customers’ evolving needs and enabling them to confidently print their concepts and designs in high quality,” said Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “With an end-to-end solution, which integrates scanning, printing and finishing, and with enhanced ease of use and improved security features, we are helping to provide our customers with the perfect all-in-one solution.”

Integrating optional finishing and scanning solutions, ColorWave and PlotWave printers offer a solution that makes the automated production of large format prints easier than ever, says Canon. 

“Also compatible with both series are compact single footprint scanning solutions—the optional Scanner Express IV, which can be integrated on top of the PlotWave and ColorWave printers for simple walk-up prints, copies or scans.

“With a new set of security features, the new ColorWave and PlotWave printer series offers safer submission to protect data and user credentials when sending files to the printer. It provides safer storage, helping to protect print data from theft or accidental data leakage; authorization to restrict access to confidential files, and hack prevention which helps limit access to the printer’s files to only authorized members of the organization. Whether print data is in submission, storage, or being authorized, the new set of security features can help keep it secure.”

Using ClearConnect software, the printers provide streamlined workflow for an individual print job or complex multi-file document sets. By providing active operator warnings and accurate print previews, the software enables users to make necessary corrections before hitting print, plus files can be submitted to print with ease from almost any location or device.

The POWERsync controller allows any of the ColorWave and PlotWave series to be integrated into a network running uniFLOW technology for secure printing and accounting.

Publisher Select, part of the ClearConnect software suite, helps eliminate misprints and wasted materials with a “what you see is what you print” preview on a user’s computer. The software offers dual printer support for a range of Canon’s large format printers and has the functionality to assign specialized media templates to print jobs or individual files within a multi-file print job.
