Quality of Canon's production printing products and technology recognised with awards

Canon has announced that PRINTING United Alliance has again recognised the quality of Canon's production printing products and technology with five Pinnacle Product Awards and one Pinnacle InterTech Award.

Product awards in the software category were presented to PRISMAcolor Manager for color management and quality control and to PRISMAsync winning for best Software-RIP (raster image processor), while 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. Additionally, Canon also won a Pinnacle InterTech Award for its FLXfinish+ that offers the unique ability to print a mixed matte and gloss finish in one print, at the click of a button.

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

Five Pinnacle Product Awards 2022

Canon products have won Pinnacle Product Awards in the following categories for 2022:

  • PRISMAcolor Manager – Software/Color Management and Quality Control
  • PRISMAsync Automated Color Tasks – Software/RIP
  • Arizona 2380 GTF – UV/Latex Flatbed ($200K-500K)
  • Arizona 2380 XTF – UV/Latex Flatbed + White ($200K-500K)
  • Colorado 1630 – Roll-to-Roll UV (under 80 in.)
Raymond Weiss, Vice President, eLearning and Certification, PRINTING United Alliance, comments, "This juried competition represents the best of the best among commercial hardware, software, consumables, and industrial and screen equipment, and judges are basing their decisions on objective criteria. Some of the categories were decided by tenths of a point—so fierce was the competition this year—and with outstanding entries like the Colorado and Arizona, the judges certainly had their work cut out for them."

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