Printing out our images is one of the best things that we can do as artists and photographers. Seeing your work in physical form is genuinely unlike anything else, and it beats just seeing digital representations of your work. Epson has been creating printers for a very long time. The new Epson wide-format printers should enable you to view your work in their most beautiful form. According to Epson, the 24-inch SureColor P7570 and 44-inch SureColor P9570 wide-format printers push the boundaries of what’s possible when it comes to printing and print technologies. Both of the new Epson wide-format printers have a brand new design and a completely new print engine. They also boast a lot of other new technologies that should help bring your images to life with ease. One of the most significant features is that both of these Epson wide-format printers both use the new Epson UltraChrome Pro12 pigment inks.
Both of the new wide-format printers are virtually identical apart from the overall size. The smaller SureColor P7570 and the larger SureColor P9750 are both twice as fast as the models that they are replacing. They also help promote a productive workflow thanks to their dedicated channels for matte and photo black inks. This improvement means that you can save time by not having to switch out inks. Other new features include improved black density and reduced differential on glossy and metallic media. More advanced media support for roll and cut-sheet media, and a new top-loading cut-sheet feeder and retractable catch basket.
The new UltraChrome Pro12 pigment ink has the widest color gamut in its class according to Epson and will produce the deepest black on glossy media. The Violet ink channel helps the printers achieve 99% of of the PANTONE plus formula guide too. The new print heads feature over 9600 nozzles. This means these Epson wide-format printers are twice as fast as previous models (the P7000 and P9000). Their robust design which features a 4.3-inch color touchscreen should help simplify using these printers as well.
Both of the wide-format printers were developed in conjunction with X-Rite. The P7570 and the P9750 both feature an in-line spectrophotometer for automated color management and verification checks. Surely with this in place, you’ll have no issues producing images that look just as you envisioned them. There’s no word on pricing or release dates just yet, but if you would like more information about either of these wide-format printers head on over to the official Epson website.
