Epson Stylus Photo R2000 Answers Middle East Customer Demand for Improved User Convenience

A3+ high-gloss photo printer uses 50 per cent larger ink cartridges for fewer cartridge changes

Responding to customer demand for higher-capacity ink cartridges to improve user convenience, Epson has developed the Stylus Photo R2000 with 17ml ink cartridges. The new A3+, 8-colour photo printer, which has been launched in the Middle East, delivers high-quality photographic prints using Epson UltraChrome Hi-Gloss2 pigment ink, with the advantage of 50 percent higher capacity cartridges compared to previous models in its class. This allows larger print jobs to be completed with fewer ink changes.

Epson has also answered customer calls for wireless connectivity, making the R2000 one of the only printers in its category to feature Wi-Fi. Combined with USB and Ethernet connectivity, Wi-Fi enables the R2000 to fit easily into any studio or home environment. Users can print remotely from iPhones® or iPads® using the Epson iPrint app.

Khalil El Dalu, General Manager, Epson Middle East, said: "Based on the feedback Epson received from its customers, the company has not only added Wi-Fi and larger ink cartridges but has also ensured users get high-quality results, every time, which will be well appreciated by Middle East users. 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."

Thanks to Epson UltraChrome HiGloss2 Ink, users can achieve an ultra-glossy finish for photos, yet enjoy all the benefits of a pigment ink - including durable, long-lasting prints and the flexibility to work with a wide range of media. In addition to supporting fine art, glossy and matte media, both in cut-sheet and roll-paper formats, the R2000 also prints directly onto CDs/DVDs and thick media such as poster board.
