44-inch Stylus Pro 9890 targeted at professional photographers and fine art market
Epson has announced the Middle East launch of two large format printers which offer an ideal combination of accurate colour reproduction with excellent 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.
Using 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 better-than-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 striking black and white output with a high contrast ratio, perfect tonal range, improved grey balance and no colour casting.
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.
The optional inline SpectroProofer ensures consistent, repeatable colour accuracy when using different media, rapidly measuring control strips and colour charts when creating ICC (International Color Consortium) profiles and print verification results.
Khalil El Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East, said, “The Stylus Pro 7890 and Stylus Pro 9890 offer first class colour reproduction and also represent a big boost in productivity. They have a high production speed aided by Epson’s Automatic Droplet Detection System to fix 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 here in the Middle East.”
