Epson’s latest printers, the SureColor SC-P7500 (24in wide) and SC-P9500 (44in wide) are the company’s first to use a 12-colour inkset, giving an exceptionally wide colour gamut with 99% Pantone coverage. Targeted at photographers, fine art printers and professional proofers, these two large format printers use Epson’s newly developed Pro12 inkset with K3 technology which reduces graininess and gives advanced black & white output. As well as the standard colours of cyan, magenta and yellow, the inkset also includes green, orange and violet, and matt and photo black can be used simultaneously; a first for Epson. Deeper blacks are possible through an enhancement overcoating technology for even more dramatic results. In addition to the 12-colour inkset the printers use advanced PrecisionCore Micro TFP printer heads that use up to 800 nozzles for each colour and give perfectly round and consistent ink droplets at a 300dpi resolution to render the finest detail. Both the SureColor SC- P7500 and SC-P9500 will be available from this December at prices to be confirmed. •
