COLOUR BRILLIANCE

CHROMA OPTIMIZER

Eliminates Gloss Unevenness

Chroma Optimizer

Chroma Optimizer* complements the characteristics of pigment ink by reducing the difference in ink droplet height to form a flat and smooth coated layer. The result is evenly reflected light that reduces gloss unevenness, deeper blacks, heightened colour density and reduced metamerism.

*Only applicable to PRO-500, PRO-1 and PRO-10.

4 Professional Results:

Highly uniformed glossiness

With the application of the Chroma Optimizer, the appearance of a print is well-finished with uniform glossiness regardless of the colour density.

High Black Density

Chroma Optimizer enhances black density and expands the colour gamut in dark areas.

Anti-Bronzing Effect

Bronzing effect is a common phenomenon with some pigment ink printers, where wrong colour and/or metallic lustre is observed due to the irregular light reflection off the printed surface. In monochrome prints, metallic lustre like iridescence is often observed in grey colours. When the Chroma Optimizer is applied over a monochrome print, the bronzing effect is suppressed, which controls the light reflection from the print surface.

Decorative Effect

Chroma Optimizer can also be used to create subtle decorative effects. For instance, you can create a textured pattern on a print or have your signature as a 'watermark' on your photos.

LUCIA PRO

Impressive Colour Possibilities

Lucia Pro Ink

The LUCIA PRO Ink System* is the next generation in archival grade pigment ink formulation. The inclusion of four monochrome inks – The inclusion of four monochrome inks – Matte Black, Photo Black, Gray, and Photo Gray deliver enhanced black density and detailed shadow detail reproduction in darker areas. Reds and blues are heightened with the use of dedicated Red and Blue inks, while Matte Black and Photo Black inks have their own dedicated channels, thus eliminating the need for switching when changing media types.

PRO MODE

Achieves the Optimal Balance for Images Captured with Digital Cameras

Canon Pro Mode

Printers and monitors reproduce colours differently. This means that the colours displayed on your monitor may not be the same as the colours that are printed out. The new PRO Mode solves this by considering the characteristics of human’s perception to map the colour gamut. Setting 'PRO Mode' for recording image data in the sRGB colour space ensures the display of correct data characteristics. This allows for better print precision, and what you get are quality printouts that are close to how they appear on the monitor.
