    New Epson printers make first 11
    Epson will launch two large format printers using a newly developed 11-colour pigment ink set later this spring.
    The
    Stylus Pro 7900 and 9900, which can output up to 24 and 44 inch
    respectively, were unveiled at the DRUPA trade show in Germany last
    week, together with details of the UltraChrome HDR (High Dynamic Range)
    inks.’This ink set incorporates orange and green to considerably expand
    the colour gamut and increase digital printing opportunities,’ says
    Epson, adding that it is a high density resin-coated pigment ink
    formulation with four-level black ink technology – photo black, matt
    black, light black and light light black – plus cyan, light cyan, vivid
    magenta, vivid light magenta, yellow, orange, and green. Matt black is
    also included on-board and can be auto-switched with photo black.

    The
    company further claims the ink set ‘delivers reduced graininess in skin
    tone areas, smoother tonal gradation from shadows to highlights,
    excellent short term colour stability and outstanding long term
    lightfastness, highly accurate colour control with neutral black and
    white, and high gloss levels on water resistant prints’.The ink set’s
    ability to maximise the colour gamut without sacrificing print quality
    and deliver smoother gradation is thanks to new Look Up Table
    technology, says Epson. ‘Through advanced mathematical translation of
    RGB into 11-colour CMYK, the LUT technology seamlessly integrates
    hi-fidelity primaries, allowing colour constancy under different light
    conditions, smoother transitions between colours, grain reduction and
    gamut smoothing.’In comparison with current eight-colour 24 and 44 inch
    printers, says Epson, print speed is dramatically increased, with the
    Stylus Pro 7900 completing an A1 ‘sellable’ quality print on Epson’s
    Premium Glossy Photo Paper in five minutes.Both use and improve on
    Epson’s MicroPiezo Thin Film Piezo print head technology, introduced
    with the launch of the Stylus Pro 11880 last year, resulting in a
    maximum speed of up to 40 sq m/hr. Two higher capacity ink cartridges
    (350 and 700ml) will be available as optional extra, as will an X-rite
    integrated spectrophotometer.

    A3+ model
    Back in London, Epson
    unveiled a new addition to the Stylus Photo range – an A3+ printer
    ‘able to achieve 85% of Pantone gamut using only eight ink cartridges
    as opposed to the 10 to 12 used by other systems on the market’.The
    R2880 uses Epson’s advanced UltraChrome K3 with vivid magenta pigment
    inks and, once again, improved look-up table algorithms to achieve
    this.Epson adds that ‘a unique mode within the print driver enables
    users to have creative control over black-and-white tones as well as
    gradation in much the same way as users can do in their darkrooms by
    selecting specific papers and chemicals’.It replaces the R2400 and will
    be made available this month, priced around £570.Pricing and exact
    availability for the new large format printers was not available as BJP
    went to press. For further details visit http://www.epson.co.uk.
