Epson Bows High-End Printer

5/28/2008 03:02:00 PM Eastern

Long Beach, Calif. — Epson will ship a high-end photo printer to dealers next month.






The Stylus R2880

The Stylus Photo R2880, which replaces the R2400, can produce prints up to 13 inches wide and uses the firm’s new Radiance Technology, which was

introduced on the R1900

. Radiance is a “mathematical architecture” co-developed by Epson and the Rochester Institute of Technology that’s built into the printer to optimize how inks are mixed.

The printer uses the company’s UltraChrome K3 inks with Vivid Magenta technology — a new, high-density form of magenta pigments that Epson said produces a wider color gamut.

In addition to photo papers, the R2880 can print on 1.3mm art boards, canvas media and on inkjet printable CDs/DVDs.

The R2880 sports a pair of USB ports for connecting two computers and will retail for $799.
