The SureColor P-Series Designer Edition printers incorporate the latest Epson printer technologies with updated EFI Fiery eXpress RIP software, built on Adobe PostScript 3 to ensure a seamless workflow experience for producing outstanding creative output. With true Adobe PostScript, seamless RGB and CMYK color management and nesting of files to optimize media usage, the new SureColor Designer Edition Printers offer advanced capabilities for producing unparalleled output from a broad range of applications.”
Developed for graphic designers and advanced photographers, the Designer Edition printers offer accurate color matching for process color (CMYK), spot colors and RGB files. The advanced job processing includes both the Adobe CPSI and PDF print engines along with support of the PANTONE Plus Spot Color library, ensuring compatibility printing directly from all industry standard design programs. The EFI Fiery eXPress software RIP delivers all this in a software package with five easy ways to print, allowing creative professionals to concentrate on what they do best – design.
The SC-P800 Designer Edition offers full 17-inch wide borderless printing with unique Epson MicroPiezo AMC printhead technology, 8-color UltraChrome HD inks and advanced media handling, including a sheet feeder, front-in and front-out paper path, and an optional roll holder. Choose your media and path to print full two-page spreads with bleed and crop marks, or borderless photos with exceptional clarity and sharpness up to 17” x 22″ on a variety of comping, proofing, glossy, matte, and fine art papers. The SureColor P800 Designer Edition uses individual 80 ml high-capacity ink cartridges, and offers exceptional connectivity options, making it easy to print via USB, Wireless n2 or Ethernet.
The 24-inch SC-P6000 and 44-inch SC-P8000 Designer Editions feature the latest 8-color imaging technologies, including Epson’s PrecisionCore TFP printhead and UltraChrome HD inks to deliver extraordinary performance for the professional printing industry, along with color matching capabilities. Advanced media handling supports virtually any media type in roll or cut-sheet for comping, proofing and photographic output, and even supports up to 1.5 mm thick poster board. If a current design size or workflow requires tiling and splicing individual pages, or outsourcing large jobs, the wider 24- or 44-inch devices are capable of outputting a time saving single page.
The SC-P800, SC-P6000, and SC-P8000 Designer Editions are currently available through authorized Epson Professional Imaging resellers with pricing starting at $1,495.
