Subject: Announcement of the New imagePROGRAF TZ-30000 Series and the next
generation of TX Series Models

The Large Format Solutions Division is excited to announce the expansion of its award winning
imagePROGRAF line-up with the 36-inch TZ-30000 & TZ-30000 MFP Z36 models. The TZ Series has been
designed with many “Canon First” technologies built in: Twin carriage motors power speeds as fast
as 4D sized prints a minute, an integrated top stacker utilizes an air flow system and a dual roll
media system features intelligent media handling, making it a powerful new addition to Canon’s
portfolio of large format printers. The next generation of TX Series printers have been upgraded
with many of the new technologies developed for the TZ Series, for greatly improved productivity
and efficiency.

The TZ Series seizes and expands the production aqueous inkjet market with its ability to print
black and white line drawings and full color posters on multiple media substrates that LED devices
are unable to support. This hybrid model is uniquely qualified to capture market share where
overall print volumes are trending lower and the need to get more out of a machine is a business
necessity. Built with production, efficiency, and versatility in mind, this printer delivers up to
244 D-sized prints per hour via faster processing speeds with the implementation of parallel
processing combined with increased carriage and cutter speed. To enhance operator usability, the
intelligent media handling system automatically feeds the media and then detects the width and
type, as well as measure the remaining media amount. Media can be loaded in the second roll, while
the other roll is printing – A Canon first! The stacker, which is positioned on the top front
portion of the printer, can accommodate up to 100 Arch E
size plain paper prints, with face-down stacking for added confidentiality. The LUCIA

TD pigment inks, creative software, and water resistant media makes it a versatile system that can
create colorful posters, signs and banners.
