FINE Print Head: The printer is equipped with a large FINE
(Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print head with a tubular ink
delivery system, which helps prevent clogging and improves print speeds. In
addition, sensors in the head are constantly monitoring performance, and when a
clogged nozzle is detected, another one automatically provides backup. This
prevents wasted prints due to unwanted white lines in solid areas of the print, and extends the time between nozzle cleanings.
The 1.28" wide print head produces a printing area that's 50% larger than most
print heads, dramatically improving printing speed. Each of
the 12 ink tanks has 1,536 nozzles for a total of 18,432 nozzles. The printer is
capable of producing color and black & white prints with a resolution of up to
2400 x 1200 dpi (dots per inch).

Feeding System: The Canon Pro-1000's Air Feeding System directs air
through a series of openings on top of the platen to vacuum-grip the paper as it
travels through the printer. The air helps maintain a consistent height between
the print head and the media being used, keeping each page from skewing. The
consistently level printing surface delivers accurate ink placement, consistent
margins, and improved image quality.
