Canon Print Service
This software allows users to print from the menus of applications that support Android’s printing subsystem. Print PDF files wirelessly via a mobile application for Android tablets and smart phones. In just a few simple steps you can log into the Canon Print Service application, create the JPEG file, send the JPEG file to a TX Series large-format printer and select the “JPEG direct print” function to print your document. Simple and easy to do on-the-go!
The TX Series will support Apple AirPrint9, Apple’s future standard output process. This application allows users to output from various applications on mobile devices, without specialized drivers and output applications. There are currently no restrictions on file types, so it is now easier than ever to print full-quality photos and documents from most Apple products including your Mac®, iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod®. It also features easy discovery, automatic media selection, and enterprise-class finishing options.
Media Configuration Tool
Manage, update and arrange media information in the operation panel and printer driver.
Device Management Console
This software allows users to continually monitor information such as the printer status and colors being used to print. It also allows printer administrators to centrally control multiple networked printers at once. This utility software displays the acquired printer information in a neat list for easy visibility. Printer administrators can be notified via email when an error or warning occurs. No more hassles to get to an installation site of a printer to check on the amount of ink remaining. Printer administrators can now simply check the amount of consumables remaining for networked printers by operating DMC software from their own personal computer. You can monitor the status of up to 50 TX Series printers!
Quick Utility Toolbox
This is the portal to accessing all of the Canon printer software and tools.
Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office
This utility makes it easy to print large format documents created in Microsoft® Word, Excel®, or PowerPoint®. The Plug-in appears in a tool bar inside the Microsoft application and has an easy-to-follow “Wizard”. The Plug-in will bypass the printer driver to simplify the printing process. A few simple steps can convert your 8.5″ x 11″ office document to poster size.

Accounting Manager software serves as a powerful feature that can help users accurately manage printing costs and other information that is increasingly important in today’s economic environment.
With the Accounting Manager software you can track how much ink and paper is being consumed when printing large format jobs. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on your own “Cost of Goods”. Each individual ink tank and each paper type can have its own cost associated to it. The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel® so the data can be used for billing purposes. This feature will allow you to determine the cost of each print based on your actual cost.
Direct Print & Share2
Sharing ideas has never been easier with Canon’s Direct Print & Share software. Direct Print and Share is a cloud portal and batch printing solution that can help you expand your printing workflow. This software allows you to upload documents to your cloud account using any WebDAV compliant cloud service and print the uploaded documents from almost anywhere. Easily share and/or print .cpfx PosterArtist, PDF, TIFF, JPEG, and HP-GL/2 files, through the user-friendly interface. In addition, you can set-up hot folders on your desktop by clicking the Shortcut Print feature. Then drag and drop the files you wish to print into these folders and the job will start automatically. You can even set up multiple folders, each with their own customized settings, allowing for multiple jobs to be run with ease.
The TX Unified Printer Driver8
The TX Unified Printer Driver allows users to print to any imagePROGRAF TX Series device, without the need to install additional drivers for each model. This helps make it a hassle-free installation process for multiple devices within the same environment.
The Windows® and Macintosh® drivers incorporate simplified page setup options, one-touch borderless printing, expanded color settings, and much more into a printer driver that is intuitive and easy-to-operate while still giving even the most advanced users the tools needed to help stay productive.
The Real Preview feature helps ensure that the print setting and the layout on the roll paper is correct by providing users with real time preview, allowing them to change the print setting even after clicking on “print”. The Free Layout Tool feature enables nesting and custom layouts of images or files of nearly any type (available for both Windows® drivers and Mac® drivers).
500GB Hard Drive
A built-in 500GB hard drive within the printer increases productivity by relieving workload from the host PC, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage, and retrieval.
Printing jobs quick is critical on the work site and in the office; The Wi-Fi connectivity7 will transfer technical drawing files and speed up your workflow, perfect for high-volume printing.

Canon’s advanced print head technology achieves speeds up to 904 ft²/hr on uncoated media. Print a full color, 2400×1200 dpi high resolution image with plain paper in 42 seconds5. Powering these incredible print speeds is Canon’s L-COA processor, at the heart of every imagePROGRAF printer.
Print Head PF-06
The newly designed, 6-channel PF-06 Print Head is engineered to work with the printers’ high-speed carriage and high-frequency ink ejection to enable fast printing. This printer boasts Canon’s print-head technology that lays down ink with exceptional speed and accuracy. The PF-06 print head incorporates a nozzle orifice shape to help minimize mist spray, producing clean lines and text. The high-precision, high-density print head, with a total of 15,360 nozzles, lays down 5 picoliter-size ink droplets that produce sharp detail and excellent image quality. The result is consistently accurate 2400 x 1200 dpi output with fine lines that are accurate to ±0.10% and as thin as 0.02mm.
Sub Ink Tank System
The Sub-Ink Tank System allows all of the available ink in a tank to be used before having to replace it, helping eliminate any wasted ink. The empty tanks can also be replaced on-the-fly without stopping the printer. This is extremely useful during your long print jobs.
Optional 2nd Roll Unit
The optional Multifunction Roll System is a versatile media handling solution system that enables either a second roll of media to be loaded on the printer, or can be configured as a bi-directional media Take-up unit. The optional second roll allows for the immediate switching between different media types or the use of two rolls of the same paper for up to 3900 sq. ft. for printing of large, consecutive runs. As a Take-up unit the operator can choose to use this option to rewind longer printouts, either surface on the outside or the inside of the roll.
Built for high productivity and increased flexibility this stacker handles documents of mixed sizes, including ARCH C, ARCH D, or ARCH E/E1sizes, and stacks them up to 100 sheets. The variety of configurations the TX Stacker can be positioned makes prints easily accessible to pick up for on-the-go printing. When not in use the TX Stacker can be folded up to conserve space.
