Canon Solutions America Showcases Innovations in Geographic Information Systems Printing at 2014 ESRI International User Conference

Canon Solutions America, Inc. will display its latest solutions to help Geographic Information Systems (GIS) operators improve print quality, efficiency and workflow at the Canon U.S.A booth (#917) during the 2014 ESRI International User Conference, July 14-18 in San Diego, CA.

“The printing solutions on display at this year’s user conference integrate seamlessly with ESRI applications to provide a fast, productive large format color printing system, able to handle the largest and most complex of GIS files and meet the workflow needs to GIS users,” said Sal Sheikh, vice president, Large Format Systems, Canon Solutions America.

Capture and Print Complex Information at World Class Speed

Layers of complex imagery are necessary to produce intelligent maps that enable proactive, data-driven decision making. However, limitations within existing large format print technology often force GIS operators to remove layers of critical information. Maps are scaled back prior to printing because printers lack sufficient processing speed and cannot handle the required file size, detail or depth.

During the conference, Canon Solutions America will display the Océ ColorWave 650 printer – an innovative solution to solve plotting issues in GIS workflows. This all-around productive system allows technical users to print, copy and scan in black and white and color without sacrificing productivity, quality or layers of detailed information. The printer can produce up to 30 full color 30” x 42” maps per hour and the embedded Océ PowerM Plus controller helps to ensure that processing times for complex GIS files do not create bottlenecks. The 42-inch-wide printer holds up to six media rolls, each holding up to 650 feet of inexpensive, uncoated plain paper. This unprecedented media capacity reduces media loading and saves time.

Océ CrystalPoint technology delivers instantly dry prints, so GIS maps may be handled, stacked or folded immediately. These images are waterfast, making them ideal for field work in a multitude of conditions. This durability is extended with the ability to print on Tyvek, which is recognized as a superb water resistive barrier material, allowing users to create a wider variety of GIS prints that might be exposed to the elements.
