Ink cartridges have proved instrumental in ensuring this year's Oscars ceremony ran smoothly, Epson says.

The firm is celebrating its 12th successive year of involvement with the world-famous film awards, which were held at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood yesterday evening (Sunday February 27th).

This year, a set of Epson WorkForce 60 printers, which use individual ink cartridges, were used to produce thousands of colour 'credentials' – the passes that journalists and other media figures use to access certain areas of the theatre.

Epson said this illustrates the world-leading quality of its WorkForce range. The printers use individual ink cartridges so that when a colour cartridge runs out, that is the only one that needs to be replaced.

"We are excited that Epson WorkForce printers are once again an integral part of the Academy Awards this year, printing the credentials with superior quality and blazing speeds," said Jennifer Liao, product manager, Consumer Ink Jets, Epson America.

It was a successful year for British filmmaking at this year's event, with Colin Firth winning Best Actor for his performance of King George VI in The King's Speech while the picture itself was named Best Film.
