Epson adds yet another A3 professional printer to its range
Epson has announced the launch Stylus Photo R2880 using UltraChrome K3 inks with Vivid Magenta.
Targeting their established market of professional photographers and designers, the R2800 is claimed by Epson to deliver the highest quality available in photographic inkjet printing.
The printer features include the look-up table (LUT) algorithms that enable the printer to accurately match colours and ensure that every image is printed to exhibition display standards.
Users have control over black and white tones as well as gradation and the improved, customisable user interface enables users to find, change, save and share print settings. This helps ensure photographers get the desired print first time; making the printer more efficient in terms of inks and media, according to Epson.
The Stylus Photo R2880 supports media for CD and DVD printing, fine art paper, roll paper and thick rigid media such as board and poly-board. The printer also offers border free printing up to A3+, often used by photographers when printing images for display purposes.
The Vivid Magenta was added about a year ago to the K3 inkset to improve colour gamut and print quality even further, especially blues and purples.
Epson has also announced a Photoshop plug-in to improve printing to its range of A3+ and A2 printers.
Whilst the R2800 was expected to launch in Europe in July at an approximate price of A$1200.00, Craig Hekenberg, Business Unit Manager of Epson's Business Solutions Division told Wide Format Online magazine that at this stage he could not confirm anticipated pricing nor the arrival date in our region.
