Featuring the eight-colour Epson UltraChrome HG2 pigment ink  set, which includes red and orange inks for deeper  reds, the SureColor  SC-P405 uses Epson’s  MicroPiezo AMC eight-channel print head technology, based upon a one-inch-wide print head with a 1.5 pl minimum droplet  size and ink-repelling coating for more accurate dot placement and  reduced maintenance. This enables it to create consistent output with smooth gradations and a professional  photo look and feel.  

It offers advanced media handling, with a front-in and  front-out paper path and roll paper support.  Support for borderless printing is available right up to A3+ (13″x19″) size on a wide variety of glossy, matte and fine art  papers. In addition, custom images can be  created and printed directly onto canvas, board and CD/DVDs. The SureColor  SC-P405is compatible with  both Windows and Mac operating systems and also offers extensive connectivity options, making it  easy to print  from a home office or studio via USB, Wireless, or Ethernet.
The printer comes with new Epson Print  Layout software, which works in conjunction with popular photo editing software including  Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Nikon ViewNX-i to enable fast and flexible  output to suit a wide variety of print and  display requirements.    Graphics and photos can be formatted for  printing either as a single image or as a compound image using a range of  pre-designed templates and/or custom settings. It also provides soft proofing  functionality, supports custom media  registration and includes an easy  to use tool for panoramic photo printing.

The Epson SureColor SC-P405 will commence shipping late  October for AU$1,099 (RRP). For more information go to:
