Top-of-the-range A3+ photo printer with new UltraChrome HD ink ideal for amateur and semi-professional photographers
SYDNEY, 17 March 2015 – Epson today announced that it has launched the new SureColor SC-P600, a fast, flexible and easy-to-use printer for amateur and semi-professional photographers which produces professional, high-quality photo prints in sizes up to A3+.
The SureColor SC-P600 is Epson’s top-of-the-range A3+ photo printer and combines superb quality, high productivity and superior wireless connectivity in a compact and affordable package. The SureColor SC-P600 features Epson’s new UltraChrome HD with Vivid Magenta ink to produce excellent quality prints. The new nine-colour UltraChrome HD inkset can reproduce a very wide colour gamut and with a 2.84 DMax – the industry’s highest black density1 produce deep, rich blacks and ultra-smooth tonal gradations. This unprecedented black density has never been seen before from a pigment ink.
The SC-P600 also offers the auto-switching of black inks, an intelligent linking technology that enables the printer to automatically switch between Photo and Matte Black inks to optimise output, based on the media type chosen. Photo Black Ink produces rich, deep blacks on traditional photographic papers while Matte Black Ink produces exceptional results on matte surface media.
The advantage of unprecedented black density doesn't end there as with the SC-P600's Advanced Black-and-White Photo Mode users can choose from one of four pre-set modes - neutral, warm, cool, or sepia - for stunning neutral or toned black-and-white prints. This feature provides intuitive and consistent control through custom slider bars and a colour tone wheel for advanced tone adjustment. In addition, customised settings can be saved and recalled to achieve consistent prints, and using the optional downloadable Epson Print Layout software, users can automatically preview personal images with the selected settings.
Ideal for amateur and semi-professional photographers, the SureColor SC-P600 will also appeal to businesses, such as architects, real-estate agents and advertising/design agencies, that have a regular requirement for exceptional-quality colour presentations with photographic content.
The new printer provides exceptional Wi-Fi Direct® wireless printing connectivity from smartphones, tablets and PCs. For the first time on a single-function Epson A3+ photo printer, Epson Connect is supported. Google Cloud Print™ and Apple AirPrint™ are also supported for even more convenience and flexibility.
Designed for medium-volume production, the SureColor SC-P600 outputs an 11 x 14 inch print in just 153 seconds. Twin paper paths enable A3+ printing on a wide variety of photo and fine art papers, canvas and thick media, while the machine's roll-paper capability is perfect for high-impact panoramic images.
