The Epson Stylus Photo RX700 with 6.3cm Photo Fine colour LCD screen

July 2005

Sydney, 14 July 2005: Epson Australia has released the Epson Stylus Photo RX700 multifunction photo printer with a 6.3cm colour LCD viewing screen, the highest resolution ever used on an Epson multifunction printer, using Epson Photo Fine(TM) technology for viewing of images before printing.

Users can preview smoother, more realistic images before printing as the Epson Photo Fine(TM) screen uses LTPS (low temperature poly-silicon) as the base material, giving a higher pixel density and screen resolution up 256 pixels per inch, similar to the recently released Epson P-2000 multimedia viewer.

The Epson Stylus Photo RX700 uses new six colour (Black, Magenta, Cyan, Yellow, Light Magenta and Light Cyan) HQ4 dye ink for high quality photos. With individual cartridges, the Stylus Photo RX700 ensures users keep running costs low, as they only need to replace cartridges as they use them.

High quality photos can easily be produced on the Stylus Photo RX700 with a resolution of up to 5760dpi (dots per inch) and a minimum droplet size of 1.5pl (picolitres) using VSDT (Variable Sized Droplet Technology) so that tones are smooth and accurate with fine gradation and reduced graininess.

With the highest resolution MatrixCCD(TM) scanner in its class, the Stylus Photo RX700 scans at up to 3200 x 6400 dpi. The built-in TPU (Transparency Unit) also allows users to scan both positive and negative film.

The Stylus Photo RX700 also includes new utilities such as CD/DVD direct copy and printing, so designs can be produced for professional and individual looking CDs and DVDs. This function automatically crops the image to fit onto a CD label and prints directly onto a printable CD or DVD. Users can print up to 12 images on one disc and create CD jackets for an added personal touch.

Included in the Stylus Photo RX700 is the Epson Scan driver, with three modes - "Full Auto Mode", "Home Mode" and "Professional Mode". This is designed so that anyone, from beginners to professional photographers, can get the most out of their scanning and printing. The Epson Scan driver includes colour restoration and dust removal functions to help users restore old photographs and negatives.

The Stylus Photo RX700 is the first Epson multifunction inkjet to feature a double paper tray. This saves time in replacing paper and means that users can stock one tray with plain paper and one with specialty paper such as photo paper.

Direct print is available from scans of negative or positive film, most popular memory cards, PictBridge/USB direct printing from digital cameras, USB Flash memory devices and BlueTooth enabled mobile phones (optional BlueTooth module available).

Also new to the RX700 is the creative projects menu button, for various photo printing needs. The combination print option allows users to print photos, combined with handwritten letters for personalised greeting cards or photo albums. The reprint/restore function is perfect for multiple printing and restoring faded photos in a simple process.

To easily manage images from a variety of sources (DSC, scanner and other external devices) the Epson RX700 includes the Epson Creativity Suite photo software solution.

By first selecting "File Manager" users can find multiple files and connect to the desired function. Users can then attached the image to an email ("Attach to Email"), print the photo ("Easy Photo Print"), retouch or resize the image ("Image Clip Palette"), or copy the document or photo ("Copy Utility").

Epson's Creativity Suite also includes "Epson Web-To-Page" for easy printing straight from internet sites, and "Scan to PC" for scanning images and documents directly onto the user's PC.

The Epson Stylus Photo RX700 is $699.00 RRP including GST and available through Epson resellers.
