MediaStreet has recently introduced their latest offering in pigment technology that is said to offer the least amount of sheen, bronzing, and metamerism often common to pigmented inks. The Generations G-Chrome Ink is optimized for the Epson 2200, 7600, and 9600 printer models, and is designed to come as close to a color match as possible. Their Generations G-Chrome Ink, with its matched Media Solution was specifically developed for the printing of true photographic images via ink jet onto Resin Coated (RC) photographic paper, as well as offering the flexibility of being able to print onto matte, canvas, film, and fine art papers. With Generations G-Chrome Ink those looking for fine art reproduction will get vibrant, durable prints that are said to outlast the life span of traditional photographic prints.
The inks include Generations G-Chrome Photo Black, which is 100 percent pigment and uses Enhanced Generations Ink base. The Photo Black is for imaging onto glossy RC paper. Their Generations
G-Chrome Universal Matte Black is 75 percent pigment and 25 percent dye black and is for printing onto matte and fine art papers boasting greater D-max. This Universal Matte Black can also be used for printing onto glossy RC papers, but will have a slight rub-off. The other colors in the set are 100 percent pigment.
The company notes on its helpful website that "for ink jet printers designed for dye-based ink that you will need to print at least at 2880dpi to achieve optimal results with this pigment ink set. Due to the fact that the Epson 1280, as an example, is a `dye-based' printer, you need to print at 2880dpi in order to run a `pigment' ink effectively through it. You will discover that Epson defaults automatically to the highest resolution when you print with their own pigment ink when you select a Photo Quality setting output."
