Epson Updates Its Inkjet Range
Printer ink maker Epson has launched a new Stylus model at Photokina, the photographic trade show held in Germany. According to Print Week, Epson showcased the Epson Stylus Pro 4900 at the expo, which will bolster its x900 inkjet roster.
A desktop machine, the 432 millimetre device offers a built-ink spectrophotometer. This device is a photometer that can verify the light intensity of documents produced. The larger Pro 7900 and Pro 9900 machines also employ this function.
The printer ink maker says that the spectrophotometer feature could "kick-start the remote proofing market" on two-page format desktop machines. The firm's 11-colour Ultrachrome HDR ink set, which includes orange and green, also features, with the 4900 offering a resolution of 1,440x2,880 dpi with a smallest ink droplet size of 3.5 pl.
Also at Photokina, which runs until 26th September, Epson will take part in a world record attempt to create the world's largest globe from photographic images.
