Epson Australia held a unique launch event on Tuesday night to highlight the work the company has done in raising the productivity and efficiency of all the products it now manufactures and produces.
Epson MD Craig Heckenberg said, “The common themes for today’s event are a significant increase in productivity and efficiency in all Epson products across the board. It’s fair to say our products are better than they have ever been on many levels, including being kinder to the environment.
"You can now print faster, onto more substances and use less ink than ever before. You can also project brighter and bigger for longer at a lower cost and with less effort. In other words you can increase your productivity levels and be more efficient by simply using Epson’s next generation of products.”
Highlights from the event included the new SureColor P9560, Epson’s first-ever 12 colour large-format printer offering the widest ever colour gamut with 99% Pantone coverage. We're told the SC-P9560 is "ideal for artists and photographers, as it offers reliable reproduction for professional proofing and rapid throughput for high-volume production."
In the dye-sublimation printing space Epson showcased two new printers. The first was the 64-inch SureColor F9460H, Epson’s first genuine fluorescent ink, dye-sublimation, textile printing solution, which builds on the success of the current F-Series and offers customers greater print flexibility.
Alongside the SC-F9460H was the new SureColor F560, a world-first, single-vendor, 24-inch dye-sublimation printer with integrated bulk ink system designed for small business and fine art production that combines compact size with high format flexibility in a cost-effective package.
There were also clever new ColorWorks C6010 and C6510 label printers unveiled. These on-demand label printers extend Epson’s existing range to meet the needs of small to medium batch customers across many sectors including food, chemical, beverage, horticulture and logistics.
Illuminating proceedings were two new projectors from Epson. The first is Epson’s brightest 3LCD projector to date, the 30,000 lumens EB-L30000UNL, which boasts a maintenance-free laser light source that provides 20,000 hours of operation.
The EB-L30000UNL supports screen sizes of up to 1,000 inches with a WUXGA resolution and 4K enhancement technology, as well as a 2,500,000:1 contrast. It is a body-only system that provides a choice of 4K optional lenses designed for a variety of applications. Its compact design and 360° installation potential simplifies installation to suit the needs of different environments.
Epson’s new versatile installation laser projector, the compact 7,000 lumens EB-L1070UNL, was also on display at the event. As with the EB-L30000UNL, it features 4K enhancement technology and interchangeable lenses.
Seen for the first timed in Australia at its Productivity and Efficiency launch event and ahead of its official launch in 2020, Epson Australia also previewed its
EH-LS500 ultra-short-throw laser projector – the unique big-screen TV alternative.
The EH-LS500 projector adds the ability to watch 4K content and a new stylish design to its portfolio of ultra-short-throw laser projectors.
Finally and to coincide with the incredible milestone of selling over 40 million EcoTank printers globally, Epson Australia has expanded this amazingly popular range with six new EcoTank models consisting of five new EcoTank single and multi-function mono models (ET-M1170, ET-M1180, ET-M2170, ET-M3170 and ET-M3180) and the ET-1110 single function colour model – all of which are cheaper to run and are better for the environment than equivalent laser printers.
All current and new EcoTank printers have:
- Very low cost per page – from less than half a cent per printed page
- Very low total cost of ownership
- Replacement ink bottles that start at just $14.99 for 1,000s of additional pages
- Up to 2 years of ink included – based upon printing 200 pages per month
- Less down time due to less moving parts with no drum to replace
- Fast first page – from as low as six seconds, ideal for one page documents
- Low energy consumption as it’s inkjet not laser technology
- No throwaway ink or laser toner cartridges
