Epson unveil new SureColor A2+ & A3+ printers
Epson has launched two new printers - the A3+ SureColor P706 and A2+ SureColor P906.
Replacing the SureColor P600 and SureColor P800, the new printers are the smallest professional A3+ and A2+ printers in their class, with a 30 percent size reduction from Epson’s previous generation.
Both printers feature a new 10-channel MicroPiezo printhead to 'increase productivity', with dedicated channels for both Photo and Matte Black ink types and with no ink switching necessary. The printers also feature a new print driver mode called Carbon Black which according to Epson dramatically increases Dmax by up to 5 percent, for improved black density and reduced bronzing and gloss differential on glossy papers.
Both printers are capable of printing directly from iOS devices direct in a colour managed workflow, and full support and colour management tools are provided for iPhone and iPad printing.
The SureColor P706 can accommodate both roll and cut sheet media, and the SureColor P906 accommodates cut sheet media and an optional fully enclosed roll media adapter allows for both 2-inch and 3-inch rolls and roll printing up to -18m long.
Additional features include a 4.3-inch customisable touchscreen, upgraded wireless connectivity including 5GHz and an interior LED light to watch the progress of a print.
Pricing and availability
The SureColor P706 (RRP $1,295 including GST) and SureColor P906 (RRP $1,995 including GST) will be available from July onwards from Epson direct, as well as through Epson Authorised Resellers across Australia.
