Epson releases the Stylus Photo RX650 advanced all-in-one photo centre

Auckland, 13 March 2006 : Epson New Zealand has released the Epson Stylus Photo RX650 advanced all-in-one photo centre with increased photo print speed and a 2.5 inch colour LCD screen using Epson Photo Fine (TM) technology for viewing and editing of images before printing.

Users can preview smoother, more lifelike images as the Epson PhotoFine(TM) screen has a high resolution of 256 pixels per inch, allowing accurate cropping and photo enhancement choice, and BorderFree(TM) 4x6 inch photos on Epson's glossy photo papers are printed in just 45 seconds.

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

The Stylus Photo RX650 uses six individual colour (Black, Magenta, Cyan, Yellow, Light Magenta and Light Cyan) ink cartridges for high quality photos. With individual cartridges the Stylus Photo RX650 ensures users keep running costs low, as each cartridge only needs to be replaced when used.

High quality BorderFree(tm) photos are easily produced by the Stylus Photo RX650, with a resolution of up to 5760dpi (dots per inch) and a minimum droplet size of 1.5pl (picolitres) using Epson's VSDT (Variable Sized Droplet Technology), so that tones are smooth and accurate with fine gradation and reduced grain.

With the highest resolution MatrixCCD(tm) scanner in its class, the Stylus Photo RX650 scans at up to 3200x6400 dpi, and the built-in TPU (Transparency Unit) also allows users to scan both positive and negative film.

The Stylus Photo RX650 also includes 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 scanned or memory card 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 RX650 is the Epson Scan software, 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.

Also new to the RX650 is the Specialty Print menu option, 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 RX650 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 attach 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 RX650 is $499 RRP including GST and is available for purchase at Epson resellers.
