Epson presents it's large format, 8-color professional production printer, the 24" (A1) Epson Stylus Pro 7880. The Pro 7880 features Epson UltraChrome K3 ink with Vivid Magenta technology, the latest development in pigment chemistry, which offers a wide colour gamut & unrivalled image quality from an 8-color inkset
Epson's large format range provides the highest quality output that is required for the fine art, photography & proofing markets. A new Ethernet interface is included as standard & delivers fast, efficient connectivity & data transfer speeds. The improved printhead further enhances image quality & when combined with Epson's Super Halftone Technology, a new screening algorithm, it delivers sharp detail & accurate colour reproduction
The Epson large format printer range offers superior media flexibility & is compatible with a wide range of Epson paper up to 1.5mm in thickness. Glossy paper, matte paper, matte board, fine art paper & plain paper are all supported.
The Epson Stylus Pro 7880, includes a roll holder & cut sheet support, as standard. Also new is an enhanced cutting sequence delivering a faster & more productive printing workflow
The UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta further expands the already wide colour gamut of UltraChrome K3 & is a breakthrough in pigment chemistry. The full inkset includes 9-ink cartridges: photo black, matte black, light black, light light black, cyan, light cyan, yellow, vivid magenta and vivid light magenta. The two magenta inks use new high-density pigments that create more vibrant colour, especially blues and magenta, for example those found in seascapes or landscapes
The UltraChrome K3 ink with Vivid Magenta, enables superb grey balance and precise colour without any colour cast. It also maintains the superior features of the UltraChrome K3 ink such as great colour accuracy of neutral and dark colours, excellent short-term colour stability and smooth tonal gradation from shadow to light.
The issue of metamerism is virtually eliminated with this new inkset. The permanent Epson Micro Piezo printhead also offers unrivalled consistency in each print. Every print will be the same as the first, even if the artwork is printed months apart, making it ideal for studios producing limited edition print runs
Also included is the Epson Super Halftone technology, a new image processing engine for dot mapping. It enhances the image detail that may be lost in low resolution images. A new mapping algorithm reduces the graininess at both low and high resolution. The end result delivers smooth images with more accurate colour representation
Epson is also launching MyEpsonprinter.eu. This new online portal allows Epson Stylus Pro owners to retrieve up-to-the-minute technical information and monitor the performance of each printer.
