Epson Releases New Stylus Photo R2000 Printer

Printing solutions provider Epson has unleashed the new Stylus Photo R2000 printer with 17ml ink cartridges.

According to the company, the 8-color printer delivers high quality photo prints thanks to its Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss2 pigment ink, which is 50 percent more efficient when compared to previous models. This means that professionals will be able to complete larger print jobs using fewer cartridge changes.

Epson UltraChrome HiGloss2 Ink will allow users to print ultra-glossy images and enjoy the benefits of pigment ink at the same time. The new printer is capable of printing directly onto CDs and DVDs as well as thick surfaces likes a poster board.

The company has also added additional Wi-Fi support to the printer, on top of existing USB and Ethernet connectivity, to allow the users to connect to all types of media devices. Epson also revealed that users will now be able to print wireless from their iPhone and iPad devices using the Epson iPrint app.

“Not only have we added Wi-Fi and larger ink cartridges in response to our customers’ feedback, but we’ve also ensured users get high-quality results, every time,” Neil Wilson, business manager at Epson UK, said in a statement.

“The printhead delivers a variable droplet size down to 1.5pl, resulting in high precision and smooth gradations. It also has an ink mixing function to prevent ink settling in the cartridges, making colour reproduction as accurate as possible,” he added
