MELVILLE, N.Y. -- December 3, 2013

First-time sponsor of Art Miami, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital
imaging solutions, will showcase its range of printing solutions for the fine
arts industry at CONTEXT December 3 – 8 at the Midtown Miami complex. One of
the most important annual contemporary art events in the United States, Art
Miami showcases the best available artworks of the 20th and 21st centuries in
collaboration with 125 of the world’s most respected galleries. Additionally,
Art Miami’s sister fair CONTEXT is dedicated to the development and
reinforcement of emerging and mid-career, cutting-edge artists.

At the Canon booth #E13, award-winning photographer Robert Farber will
showcase a collage of his most impressive images and share insights and
personal experiences for working with the output devices. Show attendees can
interact with Canon’s latest artistic printing solutions – including the
imagePROGRAF iPF6450 printer, which features enhanced color management
capabilities and the PIXMA PRO-1 printer – a powerful, high-quality
professional inkjet printer that produces stunning color prints and dynamic
black-and-white images.

“As photographers, we look to tell a story or convey a message through the
power of an image,” said photographer Robert Farber. “Canon’s imagePROGRAF and
PIXMA PRO printers help showcase this story by delivering high-quality,
archival imaging capabilities and creative applications that can enhance
moments we’ve captured through our lens. I’m looking forward to engaging with
other professionals at Art Miami to hear some of their latest inspirations and
discuss the potential that lies with Canon’s fine art printers.”

Consistent Color, Artistic Output

Designed for professionals in the graphic, fine art and photography markets,
the imagePROGRAF iPF6450 printer features Canon’s LUCIA EX pigment ink set – a
system that produces a dynamic color spectrum while providing better scratch
resistance and smoother gradations from previous models. The new multi-sensor
included with this printer provides outstanding color-density detection and
allows for full calibration. In addition, the Color Calibration Management
Console equipped in this devices, allows users to easily execute and monitor
the calibration status of multiple printers on a network from one PC.

High-Quality Imaging, Stunning Prints

Taking print quality and accuracy to a whole new level, Canon’s PIXMA PRO-1
printer delivers stunning, high-quality output thanks to its 12-ink system –
five of which are monochrome. The FINE Print Head helps to deliver consistent,
superb results that professional photographers demand. These 12 inks increase
the color gamut in all directions so color prints are rich and dynamic, while
black-and-white images register depth and dramatic expression. Additionally,
skin-tone reproduction has been improved to provide a more natural look,
eliminating the magenta cast occasionally found when printing portraits.
