Epson Sets New Industry Benchmark with Epson Stylus Pro 7890 and 9890 Debut

New 24-Inch and 44-Inch Printers Offer the Ultimate Combination of Performance and Value

CHICAGO, Oct. 4 — (PRNewswire) — Graph Expo, Booth 617 -- Epson America today announced the Epson Stylus® Pro 7890 (24-inch) and 9890 (44-inch) for photographers and proofing professionals, offering Epson's latest technology achievements in the sub-$3,000 and $5,000 price categories. These new printers combine eight-color Epson UltraChrome K3® Vivid Magenta ink technology with auto-sharing Matte and Photo Black inks, and Epson's MicroPiezo® TFP® print head to produce high quality prints at speeds about twice as fast as their renowned predecessors – the Epson Stylus Pro 7880 and 9880.

"With every new generation of printers, we continuously strive to reach new levels of performance," said Reed Hecht, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. "For years, the Epson Stylus Pro 880-series has been the industry benchmark for which all other printers were compared, and with the introduction of the 890-series, we have once again raised the bar, redefining the future of wide-format printing."

The Epson Stylus Pro 7890 and 9890 offer the same leading technology found in the Epson Stylus Pro 900-series, including ePlaten™ automatic media loading, spindle-free roll media loading, a roll media tracking system, front control panel with 2.5-inch color LCD, rotary cutter, fabric catch bin, and robust printer stand. The printers also feature Epson's latest ink-repelling coating and auto nozzle verification technologies to virtually eliminate clogged nozzles, and use nine individual high-capacity ink cartridges up to 700 ml. In addition, these new models are capable of handling virtually any media type, in roll or cut-sheet. Both models are available with an optional SpectroProofer® spectrophotometer.
