New Delhi: Epson, an established name in the digital imaging world, announced the launch of the Epson Stylus Photo 1390 A3+ printer. The professional dye based inkjet printer incorporates cutting edge features and bears Epson’s expertise in large format digital imaging. The printer targets design houses, small businesses and photography enthusiasts.
It maximises savings for owners by using a low cost genuine cartridge and provides affordability by sporting a six-colour INKdividualTM cartridge system. This means users only need to replace the colours that have depleted instead of having to change the full set of colour inks all at once.
High resolution and quality
To offer users good quality prints, it ioffers maximum print resolution of up to 5760 x 1440dpi (dots per inch). This is coupled with advanced Variable Sized Droplet Technology (VSDT) that dispenses five different ink droplet sizes according to image requirements.
VSDT uses bigger ink droplets to cover large colour blocks with minimal details, while the smallest ink droplets of only 1.5pl are capable of providing unfettered smooth gradation between colour tones needed in gallery quality prints.
Faster print speed
When high-speed printing is an important consideration, it prints 1390 prints at the speed of 15 ppm (pages per minute) for both monochrome and colour printouts. When printing A3 glossy full colour prints, the new printer takes just 173 seconds, more than 250% faster than its predecessor! When the printer is used in conjunction with genuine ink.
Improved software and hardware support
In addressing current needs of users, it is bundled with software for flexibility and ease of use. Users can choose between five colour output modes (Epson Vivid, Photo Enhance, Adobe RGB, Epson Standard, and No Colour Adjustment) to suit the nature of the source material for optimum image quality.
Mostly notably, the Adobe RGB support for SLR class digital printing and RAW file support is a welcome inclusion for users as it supports a wider colour gamut and optimises colours in digital prints for even greater colour accuracy. Epson’s Creativity Suite provides common photo correction and enhancement tools to easily alter images in areas such as red-eye reduction and cropping.
To facilitate large digital image file transfer via PC and printer, it helps in replacing the old USB 2.0 full-speed and parallel ports with the ubiquitous USB2.0 hi-speed port for fast file transfers.
