Previews new laser projector ahead of launch.

Epson Australia held an exclusive media event in Sydney last week to highlight its efforts in increasing the productivity and efficiency in Epson products.

Epson managing director, Craig Heckenberg (pictured) claims that the company’s products are better than they have ever been on many levels, including being kinder to the environment.

“Our customers can now print faster, onto more substances and use less ink than ever before. They can also project brighter and bigger for longer at a lower cost and with less effort. In other words, productivity levels can be increased 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, designed for artists and photographers.

In the dye-sublimation printing space, Epson showcased two new printers – the 64-inch SureColor F9460H – Epson’s first genuine fluorescent ink, dye-sublimation, textile printing solution, and the 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.

There were also new ColorWorks C6010 and C6510 on-demand label printers designed for small to medium batch customers across many sectors including food, beverage and logistics.

Two new projectors from Epson included 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.

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.

To coincide with the milestone of selling over 40 million EcoTank printers globally, Epson has expanded this 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.

Epson also previewed its EH-LS500 ultra-short-throw laser projector, with 4K content viewing capability, for the first time in Australia ahead of its official launch in 2020.
