Epson has announced the release of the Epson Stylus Photo R1900, a 13-inch
printer designed for advanced photographers and graphic designers. The Epson
R1900 provides an unprecedented standard in glossy color photographic prints
with its Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss 2 ink featuring an improved Gloss Optimizer
and new red and orange ink cartridges. The Epson R1900 is also raising the creative
standard for print quality with the introduction of Radiance Technology, an
innovation dramatically improving color transitions, resulting in brilliant,
true-to-life photos.



"Innovation is an integral part of Epson's design philosophy,"
said Patrick Chen, product manager, Epson America Inc. "After a decade
of leadership, our engineers continue to develop printers that significantly
raise the creative standard. The Epson Stylus Photo R1900 is no exception with
its UltraChrome Hi-Gloss 2 inks and Radiance Technology, innovations designed
to help deliver optimum results for photographers and graphic designers."



The Epson R1900 is the ideal productivity solution for customers looking for
the best combination of image quality, speed and archivability on glossy and
matte media up to 13-inches wide. The Epson R1900 will replace the Epson Stylus
Photo R1800, the award-winning and No. 1-selling Epson 13-inch photo printer,
and offers a vast array of improvements over its predecessor in ink technology,
print quality and speed.



More about the EPSON Stylus Photo R1900

· New Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss 2 Ink - Achieves an
optimal level of gloss and color vibrancy in a pigment ink system using eight
colors -- including new red and orange inks -- plus an enhanced Gloss
Optimizer. The red and orange inks have replaced the red and blue inks found
in the Epson R1800, resulting in improved color gamut and facial tones. This
next generation pigment ink set produces quick-drying, archival results that
can last up to 200 years under glass.1 Auto-switching photo and matte black
cartridges ensure the deepest blacks on any media type.



· New Radiance Technology -- The breakthrough mathematical
architecture on the Epson R1900 was co-developed by color scientists at Epson
and the Rochester Institute of Technology (R.I.T.) to take advantage of the
wider color gamuts possible with today's advanced ink sets. The technology
is built into the printer software and optimizes how the individual UltraChrome
Hi-Gloss 2 inks are mixed while simultaneously providing a high level of print
quality. This technology reduces grain and dramatically improves color transitions.



· Faster Print Speeds -- Creates prints up to 35
percent faster than the Epson R1800, particularly at higher resolutions, boosting
productivity for final layouts and sellable photographic images. Produces breathtaking
11" x 14" prints as fast as 1 minute, 46 seconds.2



· Superior Media Flexibility -- Offers the same
media versatility as the Epson R1800 with the ability to print on glossy, luster
and matte medias as well as thicker fine art media, roll papers, canvas and
directly onto inkjet printable CD/DVDs.



· Enhanced Connectivity -- Allows two computers
to simultaneously connect to the R1900 via two hi-speed USB 2.0 ports for seamless
printing from either computer.



· Epson PreciseColor Manufacturing -- Applies colorimetric
calibration to the permanent MicroPiezo print head at the factory through an
enhanced manufacturing process, eliminating the need for internal calibration
devices or constant calibration.



· Exceptional Reliability -- Features a new ink-repelling
coating on the print head that prolongs the life of the Epson R1900 and decreases
maintenance time. A built-in sensor also allows for automatic print head alignment
and nozzle checking.
