Canon has won a total of six Pinnacle Awards from Printing United Alliance - including three awards for its wide format Arizona 2380 GTF and Arizona 2380 XTF UV/Latex Flatbeds, and the Colorado 1630 roll-to-roll.


The Canon Arizona 2300 series UV flatbed printers won in two categories, for both UV/Latex Flatbed and UV/Latex Flatbed + White, while the Colorado 1630 series was recognized in the Roll-to-Roll UV (under 80 inch) category. 

Product awards in the software category were presented to PRISMAcolor Manager for color management and quality control and to PRISMAsync for best Software-RIP (raster image processor).

Canon also won a Pinnacle InterTech Award for its FLXfinish+ that offers the ability to print a mixed matte and gloss finish in one print.

PRISMAcolor Manager enables commercial printer operators to manage the complex task of proactively measuring and assessing colour by semi-automatically checking and comparing quality and consistency across Canon and non-Canon printers.

PRISMAsync Automated Color Tasks allows Canon cut-sheet toner-based digital press operators to manage the complex tasks of press linearization, sheet uniformity correction, G7 calibration, media colour profiling, G7 verification and results reporting at the push of a button, completely hands-off for all loaded job stocks, all in one step.

The Canon Colorado 1630 is a 64 inch, roll-to-roll printer that features Canon's unique UVgel ink technology, combining excellent print quality, best-in-class productivity and expansive application versatility with low cost of ownership. 

Freeing operators to manage their business rather than their printer, the Arizona 2300 series features award-winning Arizona FLOW technology for zoneless media constraint on the flatbed table. Printing at speeds of up to up to 95 m2/h (1,023 sq. ft/hr) and with up to eight colour channels employing Light Cyan, Light Magenta, White and/or Varnish, the Arizona 2300 series is capable of handling the most demanding mixed media applications.

“We’re very pleased to once again receive multiple prestigious Pinnacle Product Awards from the Printing United Alliance,” said Peter Wolff, senior VP and chief marketing officer, Canon Production Printing. “It’s gratifying to be recognized in a variety of categories that encompass both hardware and software and to know that Canon continues to be ranked so highly when measured against objective criteria for quality. These awards exemplify our continued commitment to developing innovative technology that helps our partners and customers meet the ever-changing demands and challenges they face in today’s print market.”

Each of 160+ entries in more than 58 award categories, spanning analogue, digital, output and non-output technologies, was reviewed by an independent panel of over a dozen judges made up of decision makers within the printing industry.

The award-winning products, along with Canon’s other production print solutions and large-format technology, will be on display this week at PRINTING United Expo from October 19-21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Canon’s booth #N1009.
