Epson Stylus Photo R2400, Pro 4800/7800/9800 printers announced.
Epson has announced their latest innovations in inkjet printing with the new Stylus Photo R2400 A3 printer, and the Stylus Pro 4800, 7800 and 9800 series of large format printers.
All the new printers will utilise EPSON ULTRACHROME K3™ inks which provides wide color gamut and superior black & white output with high print permanence ratings.
The R2400 replaces the current R2200 and will be targetted at serious amateurs as well as professional and fine art photographers.
The Pro 4800, 7800 and 9800 series are replacements for the 4000, 7600 and 9600 printers and will be targetted at professional and fine art photographers who require large format printing. In addition, technical advances in the 7800 and 9800 series brings its print speed up to par with the 4800 (as compared to the 7600/9600 which although using the same printheads, were comparatively slower than the 4000).
