New 17-inch printer achieves 98% PANTONE coverage
offering professional photographers a super-wide colour gamut with automated colour accuracy
Epson® launched the Stylus Pro 4900 – a compact, 17-inch production printer setting new standards in colour precision for the photography market. Delivering the best print quality for commercial photographs and fine art reproduction, the printer boasts outstanding colour consistency and accurate colour matching, and can reproduce 98 percent of allPANTONE®1 colours. Its high level of automation and robust mechanism make the Epson Stylus Pro 4900 a highly productive workhorse for the small office or studio environment.
Creating exceptional photographs and fine art images is easy with the Epson Stylus Pro 4900, thanks to one of the widest colour gamuts on the market. Colours on the print are identical to that of the original image, even when reproduced on a wide range of media. The optional inline SpectroProofer ensures repeatable colour accuracy when using different media, and automatically measures colour charts when creating ICC profiles.
Every print has a professional finish with precise and consistent colour reproduction. This comes from the printer’s first-class colour matching capabilities, coupled with Epson’s 11-colour UltraChrome HDR inks and Advanced-TFP print head for superior dot quality. These inks and technologies are identical to those used in Epson’s larger format production printers up to 44 inches.
The Epson Stylus Pro 4900 represents a big boost in productivity, with a production speed of 46m2/hour and minimal maintenance requirements. Its high capacity front-loading cassette makes inserting paper easy, and automated paper changing means no time is wasted switching between cut sheet and roll paper. The printer also switches automatically between photo and matte black inks, with both installed to avoid stopping the print run. All inks come in high capacity cartridges for less frequent changes and better value.
Kelvin Reynolds, general manager, Epson Southern Africa says: “Offering photographers outstanding flexibility, the Epson Stylus Pro 4900 creates better-than-lab-quality prints on a wide range of media up to 1.5mm thick, including thick photo or presentation matte board, canvas and fine art paper. Users can select a paper path that best fits their needs from a choice of cassette, top and front manual board feed or roll.”
