Epson today launched the Stylus Pro 11880, billed as the first 64-inch large format printer â€“ the widest â€“ in the world.
It features Epsonâ€™s latest printhead technology and UltraChrome K3 ink with Vivid Magenta and is designed for professionals in the photography, fine art and proofing markets.
Epson says the 8-color inkset features a new formulation of UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta, and is a breakthrough in pigment chemistry.
The full inkset includes nine ink cartridges: photo black, matte black, light black, light light black, cyan, light cyan, yellow, vivid magenta and vivid light magenta. The two magenta inks use new high-density pigments that create more vibrant color, especially blues and magenta, like those in seascapes or landscapes.
The new printerâ€™s Micro Piezo TFP printhead has doubled the nozzle density from 180 to 360 dpi for each color, while maintaining the same size of ink droplet and print speeds.
The Epson Stylus Pro 11880 will be released to the market in September this year and will cost about $20,000.
