Epson, a world leader in digital imaging and printing solutions announced the launch of the new Epson SureColor P5000 17’’ wide-format Inkjet printer in India. With the latest imaging technologies, the SureColor P5000 sets the standard for the photo printing, fine art, graphic design, and proofing markets. The new model will replace the iconic Epson Stylus Pro 4900, which helped Epson build a pronounced reputation within the photography industry.
Superior Print Quality
Designed to set the benchmark for imaging excellence, the 17″ Epson SureColor P5000 offers a refined design for enhanced performance and reliability. Ideal for professional photography, fine art, graphic design and proofing applications, it features the advanced PrecisionCore TFP printhead and Epson Precision Dot screening technologies. It delivers a wider contrast ratio and improved resin encapsulation technology for superior gloss uniformity and optically clearer, sharper images. The SureColor P5000 can support two different ink configurations. The SureColor P5000 Standard and Designer editions leverage Light Black ink for twice the overall print permanence, smooth and neutral tonal transitions and support of the Epson Advanced Black and White print mode, ideal for photography, fine art and graphic design applications.
Unsurpassed Media Flexibility
The SureColor P5000 offers versatile media handling capabilities with auto-switching between the high-capacity front paper cassette and roll media feeder. It includes a power-driven roll media spindle, ideal for producing panoramas and roll printing up to 100-feet, and an internal high-speed single pass rotary cutter. The high-capacity cassette can hold up to 100 sheets of premium paper for high productivity printing on sheets from 8”x10” up to 17”x22”. In addition, the SureColor P5000 features a front feed straight path for delicate fine art sheet media, including poster board, up to 1.5mm thick. Auto-switching between roll and cassette sheet feeding allow both sources to be loaded at the same time.
“The SureColor P5000 has redefined the benchmark for professional imaging excellence and is taking Epson’s printing technology to the advanced level by providing the users with the best technology. The previous model was a runaway hit among the professional photographers and fine art professionals. The new printer is expected to raise the bar and deliver up to twice the print permanence than the previous generation”, said Mr. Vasudevan, Deputy General Manager – Prographic Products, Sales & Marketing, Epson India.
