Canon printers are cosmic!

You may have recently heard that the black hole observation project known as the Event Horizon Telescope (participating project members include Taiwan, the USA and Japan) has made history by becoming the first to capture an image of a genuine black hole.

The subject is about 27,000 light years from Earth and is highlighted by a cloud of red-hot plasma, so precise colour and deep black reproduction was a critical factor when printed images were needed for study. That’s why Canon was engaged by China’s Academia Sinica, who requested that the black hole photos were produced on our 44inch imagePROGRAF 12-color printer due to its reputation for incredible detail and colour.

The Canon printer’s 12 ink system with Chroma Optimiser was ideally suited to enhance the details of the dark areas, reduce reflection and reproduce even the most complex of colours, making the prints ideal for close scrutiny.
