Epson Press Release (UK)
New large format printers make lifelike colour a reality

Create professional photos & fine art prints with high colour accuracy

21 September 2010 – Epson today launches two large format printers which offer an ideal combination of accurate colour reproduction with unbeatable productivity. The 24-inch Epson Stylus Pro 7890 and the 44-inch Epson Stylus Pro 9890 have been designed to help professional photographers and the fine art market create true-to-life prints at high speed.

epson SP7890Using Epson’s 8-colour UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta inkset in combination with the TFP print head for enhanced dot quality and crisp, clear images, means both printers offer lab-quality prints. They achieve one of the highest colour gamuts on the market with consistently smooth gradations and also offer a superior range of natural looking grey tones. Three densities of black, comprising a standard photo or matte black (selected automatically depending on the media) plus a light black and light light black, create neutral black and white prints with no colour cast and, perfect tonal range.

This combination of black inks also means that prints are free from bronzing, with a uniform surface appearance without discernible difference between light and dark areas. In addition metamerism is reduced, ensuring grey tones are consistent no matter what light source they are viewed under.

The optional in-line SpectroProofer ensures repeatable colour accuracy and will accurately measure colour charts enabling the data to be used for custom media ICC profile creation.

Martin Johns, market development manager for large format printers at Epson UK, says: “Not only do the Epson Stylus Pro 7890 and Epson Stylus Pro 9890 offer first class colour reproduction but they also represent a big boost in productivity. They have a high production speed aided by Epson’s Automatic Droplet Detection System to identify blocked nozzles without intervention. Both devices carry photo and matte black inks simultaneously and the built-in rotary knife means prints are cut quickly and cleanly while the improved supply handling means paper rolls are changed effortlessly in seconds.

“These features offer significant benefits in terms of saved cost and time to our customers.”
The Epson Stylus Pro 7890 is priced at £2595 and the Epson Stylus Pro 9890 is priced at £5195. Both models will be available to purchase from 1st January 2011 and are on display at Photokina in Cologne, Germany, from 21-26 September at Hall 2.2, Stand B13.

Key features summary:
• Wide colour gamut for smooth gradations

• Optional inline SpectroProofer for consistent, repeatable colour accuracy
