Epson Stylus Photo R2000: designed for serious photographers

May 2011

Sydney, 9 May 2011: The new Epson Stylus® Photo R2000 A3+ printer with Epson’s next-generation pigment printing technology is optimised for serious photography and high-level creative applications, producing vivid, gallery-quality prints with an unmatched glossy look and feel.

The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 has features typically found in professional-level printers such as flexible media handling, sophisticated print head for precise droplet placement and efficient operation, and significantly larger capacity cartridges that can produce up to 50 percent more prints1.

The printer’s connectivity options are unrivalled for its class, making it easy to print from an office or studio via Ethernet®, Wi-Fi and USB 2.02.

Its media handling flexibility is also unsurpassed allowing users to print on a full range of papers, including cut sheet and roll paper, photographic and fine art media, canvas, art boards, and CD/DVDs.

The R2000 uses Epson’s innovative MicroPiezo® print head with AMC™ (Advanced Meniscus Control), and eight colour channels including separate channels for Matte and Photo Black inks, eliminating the need for ink switching.

The Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss® 2 ink creates images with vibrant colour and a broad colour gamut, taking advantage of Epson’s exclusive high-gloss encapsulated pigments, including an enhanced gloss optimizer that creates photos with a uniformly smooth finish and feel.

“The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 is designed to meet the needs of serious photographers, creative professionals and hobbyists who are looking to showcase their work with superior quality printing,” Michael Pleasants, Director of Marketing Communications, Epson Australia, said.

“The R2000 joins an impressive range of award winning printers using the latest in Epson’s innovative encapsulated pigment inks that produce outstanding colour depth, vibrant true to life colours, and incredibly smooth tones.”

The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 in brief:

  • Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss 2 ink: Award-winning, eight-colour pigment ink set, for gallery-quality archival prints that are water, smudge and fade-resistant. Red and orange inks provide bold colours and smooth, natural skin tones in addition to vibrant greens and intense blues. An enhanced gloss optimizer delivers a uniform gloss finish, and auto-selecting Photo and Matte Black inks deliver deep blacks on matte, fine art or glossy media.
  • MicroPiezo AMC™ print head: The eight-channel, high-precision print head produces a maximum resolution of 5670 x 1440 optimized dpi and variable-sized droplets as small as 1.5 picolitre. To reduce maintenance and increase reliability the print head also incorporates an ink-repellent coating.
  • Individual larger-capacity ink cartridges: The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 delivers up to 50 percent more prints than the previous model for increased productivity and less frequent changing of cartridges1.
  • Auto-selecting black inks: automatically selects Photo or Matte black ink to produce the deepest blacks and richest colour on glossy, matte or fine art media.
  • Reliable and flexible connectivity: 100 Mbit Ethernet for wired networking, Wi-Fi 802.11n wireless technology and Hi-Speed USB 2.0 provide multiple options for fast connectivity anywhere in a home, studio or office2.
  • Advanced media handling options: A main top-loading, high-capacity auto-sheet feeder supports photographic and matte papers. A rear, single-sheet, fine art paper path handles heavier fine art and specialty media. Included roll paper support allows for panoramas up to 44-inches long, even on canvas, and a front, straight-through path handles media up to 1.3 mm thick, and direct CD/DVD printing.
The Epson Stylus Photo R2000 will be available in June at an RRP of $1099.
