Epson is launching a new 64-inch P-Series printer, the P20560, which it says offers high-quality, wide colour gamut and high productivity, and which it says is the most advanced 64-inch SureColor P-Series large format printer to date.

It succeeds the top selling SureColor P20070 and will be showcased for the first time in Australia on the Epson stand during Visual Impact Brisbane, from 17-19 July, and will be available on sale from then in Australia and shortly afterwards in New Zealand.

The SureColor P20560 comes with what Epson says are “significant” upgrades compared to the current model, offering faster processing speeds, and an expanded 12-colour ink set that is shared with the SureColor P7560 and P9560. It provides a wider colour gamut and up to 99 per cent Pantone coverage.

The SC-P20560 is fed by a newly designed bulk ink system, and ships with 12 “cost-effective” 1.6 litre ink packs, designed for high-volume print jobs.

Epson says a new 4.3-inch optical touch colour LCD, optional 1Tb SSD and Adobe PostScript 3 improve workflow and efficiency. Epson Edge Print Pro Rip software is also bundled with the machine.

The SC-P20560 shares the same 2.64-inch PrecisionCore printhead as the current model, but the printhead adds two additional lines to support the 12-colour ink set. Usability improvements that streamline workflows and media handling include the availability of Epson Media Installer, Epson Print Layout and Epson Print Automate, as well as a spindle less roll adaptor, optional take-up reel for roll-to-roll printing, front operation, and “easy” media roll loading.

The new 64-inch machine delivers a range of features that Epson says are designed to enhance business productivity, including what it says is advanced performance that delivers “crisp, detailed, colourful” prints using a reliable 2.64-inch PrecisionCore Micro TFP printhead, at high-speeds.

Image quality comes from the new UltraChrome Pro12 – a 12-colour ink set including three levels of black and a violet ink to produce a colour gamut with up to 99 per cent Pantone coverage.

The new printer connects with Epson Cloud Solution Port, enabling users to remotely monitor production on laptops and smart devices, complete with production status and usage rates, print costs and output volumes.

It will print on a wide range of media, including glossy, bond, matte and specialty medias, and rigid posterboard up to 1.5 mm thick.
