Epson America announced the 13-inch SureColor- P700 and 17-inch SureColor P900 desktop photo printers are now shipping and simultaneously released the new Epson Print Layout software for iOS devices allowing users to easily print directly from an iPhone or iPad in a fully color-managed workflow.
The new compact desktop printers are the first models equipped with a new 10-channel MicroPiezo AMC printhead, with dedicated channels for both Photo and Matte Black ink types, and new UltraChrome PRO10 pigment ink with Violet for an extremely wide color gamut.
“Using the new Epson Print Layout software for iOS gives me a greater level of flexibility and control to extend my workflow across mobile platforms,” said Vincent Versace, a renowned photographer. “It is the first iOS application that fully supports ICC profiles, allowing me to work in a full color-managed workflow.”
The SureColor P700 and SureColor P900 are the first printers compatible with Epson Print Layout software for iOS, giving users an intuitive workflow with easy printer selection, layout, and color management settings, as well as an Advanced Black-and-White Mode live preview with iOS devices, the company said. It provides users the ability to change paper orientation, arrange, size, and crop images, customized frame and border options for gallery wrap printing, and automatic paper sizing for panoramas to create frame-ready prints on a variety of Epson medias and sizes directly from a mobile device.
“Today many carry a high-resolution camera in their iOS mobile devices, and a majority of our photographs are often forgotten in our camera roll or posted once on social media – but rarely printed to be enjoyed and shared,” said Reed Hecht, group product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson. “The new Epson Print Layout iOS application, coupled with the new SureColor P700 and SureColor P900 desktop printers, provide photographers the first color-managed printing application for iOS devices, meeting the mobile workflow needs of today’s amateur and creative professionals while offering an easy way to produce high-quality color managed photographs.”
The SureColor P700 ($799 MSRP) and SureColor P900 ($1,295 MSRP) are now available through Epson Authorized Resellers. The free Epson Print Layout for iOS app is at the Apple App Store and, the desktop Microsoft Windows and MacOS applications are available at no cost for download at www.epson.com/epsonprintlayout.
