Super-fast printer produces large format photos to a high standard

SC-P20000 combines the highest printing speed with superior quality at 600 x 600 dpi and higher

Epson has introduced the SC-P20000 – a new addition to the SC-P series line-up. Combining new super-fast printing speeds with the same superior quality users expect from the range, it is ideal for creating sharp, colour-accurate large-format photos. Including a range of innovative technologies and features, the printer is both convenient and easy to operate.

 

Designed for photo labs, photo and copy shops and corporates looking for an in-house solution, the SC-P20000 can print a range of high-quality photos, POS items and signage. Allowing users to benefit from high productivity without compromising on quality, the printer comes with a PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead for producing outstanding results, even in lower quality modes. This is coupled with a high-precision media feed technology, including a newly developed camera-based paper feed stabiliser and media inductive roller system to ensure the printer operates smoothly.

 

Vernon Mellors, LFP Product Manager, Epson South Africa, said: “We understand that the market has long awaited a successor to our highly popular Epson Stylus Pro 11880 and we are excited to announce the SC-P20000 as the perfect replacement. This printer combines superior printing speeds with the same high output quality that our customers have come to expect, while delivering a range of new features and enhanced usability.”

 

Expanding on the usual features expected from Epson’s P-Series printers, the SC-P20000 includes a number of new features to help ensure the most accurate, precise and reliable results. For excellent colour reproduction, a new Epson UltraChrome Pro 10-colour ink-set consistently delivers fantastic looking prints. Blacks will be deep and rich thanks to new high density Photo and Matte Black inks. Better gradation with reduced graininess is achieved thanks to K4 and Multi Size Droplet Technology (MSDT), while a new printhead structure means fewer vibrations as well as more accurate ink droplets and dot placement. To ensure consistency without the need for expensive add-ons, the Epson Colour Calibration utility means users can easily manage their colour reproduction.

 

The SC-P20000 not only produces great results, it makes operation and maintenance clear and simple, allowing users to enjoy hassle-free printing. Getting started is easy with a clearly illustrated user guide and colour LCD Panel. When it comes to handling, changing and switching media, the process is quick and effortless. During printing, a transparent printer cover window and roll cover window allows users to check the status of printing and remaining media. After printing has finished, the position of the printhead means that it can be cleaned by the user, along with the ink cap, to help save on maintenance costs.

 

User efficiency and workflow can be improved further with an optional Adobe post script module; while optional HDD allows jobs to be reprinted directly from the printer panel, without the need for a PC.

 

The SC-P20000 will be available from March 2016.
