The Pinnacle Product Awards are a prestigious recognition in the imaging industry, acknowledging products that exhibit exceptional performance, innovation, and value. Canon's performance in these awards underscores its position as a leader in the field, consistently delivering products that shape the future of imaging technology. Open to all PRINTING United Alliance supplier members, the Pinnacle Product Award competition evaluates products that are commercially available in 2023. This year, over 160 entries across 58 categories, covering analogue, digital, output and non-output technologies, were judged by a highly qualified panel of experts from the printing industry.

Output devices were judged based on reports generated by measuring color charts and then comparing them to industry specifications.

“The Pinnacle Technology Award competition represents technologies that are truly innovative and most likely to have a significant impact among commercial hardware, software, consumables, and industrial and screen equipment. One of the things I like best about our competition is that it is juried, and judges base their decisions on objective criteria,” said Dawn Nye, Program Manager for Pinnacle Awards, PRINTING United Alliance. “This year, the competition was fierce and, with outstanding entries like the Colorado and Arizona, the judges 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 in Atlanta, GA from October 18-20 in Canon’s booth #B4033.
