The Surecolor P-series SC-P20070 and P10070
Singapore, 10 May 2016 – Epson today announced the launch of its high performance SureColor P-Series SC-P10070 and SC-P20070, utilising the most advanced imaging technologies for the display graphics and fine art photography markets. The SureColor P-series leverages an impressive 8,000 nozzle PrecisionCore MicroTFP print head, innovative media feeding system, and reformulated Epson UltraChrome PRO nine-color pigment ink system to provide unparalleled production speeds and unmatched print quality.
Up to 2.8 times faster than the previous model, the revolutionary 64-inch SureColor P20070 and 44-inch SureColor P10070 comes with an all-new Epson 10-channel PrecisionCore microTFP print head. Utilizing ten individual PrecisionCore ‘Blades’ for outstanding print speeds and extreme dot placement accuracy, the P-series printers provide true production-level printing without sacrificing print quality.
Epson UltraChrome PRO is the first pigment ink set to feature four-levels of gray ink technology, to provide seamless transitions with less visible noise and reduced bronzing for superior grayscale output. The ink provides more efficient ink use for a lower total cost of operations. Black pigments are 1.5 times denser than previous generation inks. In addition, the SureColor P20070 and P10070 utilizes improved Resin Encapsulation Technology for output with superior gloss uniformity, and exceptional overall contrast ratio and clarity.
“The SureColor P-series redefines fine art and photographic printing with its new advanced capabilities in printhead and all-new inks that provide unsurpassed image quality at super-fast production speeds. The new printers are a breakthrough in delivering a new level of quality and performance, while keeping operations costs low to meet the business and needs of the industry,” said Ms. Tan May Lin, Epson Singapore’s General Manager (Sales, Marketing & Customer Service Division).
