Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, and a Platinum Award Winner in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, has announced that its imagePROGRAF TX Series large-format devices are now compatible with software offered by System Development, Inc. (SDI), combining Canon’s powerful imaging technology with SDI’s robust set of workflow capabilities.
This announcement is the latest from Canon U.S.A. in regard to its collaboration through third-party developers to broaden the possibilities of the company’s award-winning printing solutions.
The SDI software portfolio has gained popularity in the oil and gas industry for its accurate printing of specialized documents and complex graphics files in a variety of formats.
The features align well with the precision printing of the imagePROGRAF TX Series with its ability to print at speeds of up to three D-sized prints per minute – helping to expedite critical projects.
SDI’s software is also compatible with previous generations of imagePROGRAF five-color devices utilized by customers in the oil and gas and CAD markets.
(Setting The Next Standard of Engineering, Canon is pleased to introduce four 5-color Pigment based Large-format printers into the award winning imagePROGRAF line-up: the 36” TX-3000 and the 44” TX-4000 models as well as Large-format Scan-to-Copy/File/Share/Cloud systems – the TX-3000 MFP T36 and the TX-4000 MFP T36. With all new features including the 5-color pigment ink system, TX Stacker, mechanical platform and optional multifuncation roll unit, the TX Series printers can satisfy the needs of the high-volume CAD and low-volume LED plotter market.

“By combining Canon’s imagePROGRAF TX Series with certain SDI software, we are helping strengthen three valuable components that must be taken into consideration when printing crucial jobs: accuracy, speed and ease-of-use,” said Toyotsugu Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc.
“Canon places great value in the relationships that we have with software providers, such as SDI to enable our loyal customers to help get the most out of their Canon devices.”

Through CAPP, Canon is able to more easily work with industry partners to make its printing devices more flexible so that users can tailor their solution to better meet their needs.
SDI is pleased to continue its long-term relationship with Canon in providing highly efficient, graphics software solutions to complement Canon’s exceptional line of TX Series printers.
“This combination of Canon technology and SDI software provides unparalleled levels of speed, performance and ease-of-use that benefits the user with reliable, accurate and high-quality results in the most demanding situations,” said Peter Ferrer, vice president Sales and Marketing, System Development, Inc.
“Working to get prints right the first time, every time – helps eliminate wasting both critical time and consumables.”
The imagePROGRAF TX Series, dubbed the “next standard of engineering” by Canon, has been completely redesigned to feature newly developed five-Color LUCIA TD pigment ink, a new print head, and a new high-precision mechanical platform for fast printing.
With an option for a second roll unit and new security features, these printers combine the productivity, usability, and document access control sought in the technical document and CAD markets including HD encryption, IPsec support, 802.1x support, and enhanced password options for highly secure printing capabilities.
With the new family of Canon Water Resistant Matte Polypropylene media, the TX series enables customers to achieve up to six months outdoor use with no lamination.
The TX Series are also available as an integrated MFP solution that includes a new 36-inch scanner that can scan-to-copy in color in up to six inches per second with high-resolution scanning to better capture the color and details of large-format documents.
