Melville, New York-based Canon U.S.A., the U.S. arm of Tokyo-based Canon Global, announces that its imagePROGRAF TX and PRO Series printer lineups are now fully compatible with Flexi software from Salt Lake City-based SAi (SA International).
The company says the announcement regarding the PRO Series represents the addition of the 60-inch imagePROGRAF PRO-6000 large-format printer to those devices which can be used with SAi software, helping provide color continuity for signage and pay-for-print operations.
Users of the imagePROGRAF TX Series, typically used for CAD applications, can add versatility to their devices by producing signage, posters and infographics through FLEXI software, expanding options for producing quality in-house applications, the company says. Canon imagePROGRAF PRO and TX Series devices can now be used with Flexi Subscription; FlexiSIGN&PRINT; and FlexiPRINT software.
“Canon’s imagePROGRAF devices, specifically the PRO and TX Series models, are designed to provide versatility to produce a wide array of applications across a variety of markets, helping add value to their printing operation,” says Shinichi Yoshida, executive vice president and general manager of the Business Imaging Solutions Group for Canon U.S.A. “With the integration of SAi’s FLEXI software and Canon’s award-winning imagePROGRAF devices, we are putting the power to print high-quality, color correct applications in the hands of the customer to create bold applications and diversify their offerings.”
SAi is a platinum member of the Canon Alliance Partner Program (CAPP) for imagePROGRAF large-format solutions, an alliance network in which Canon works closely with third-party software companies to offer innovative software solutions to imagePROGRAF customers.
