Epson expands commercial photo production range with first scalable photo microlab
Epson is pleased to announce the commercial launch of the SureLab D7 Studio which was shown at Photokina, 16th-21st September. This scalable and flexible solution can be tailored to suit users’ needs, and used either on the shop floor as a self-service order terminal or – by adding the SureLab D700 printer – as a production microlab behind-the-counter.
Designed to create opportunity for imaging businesses and High Street retailers, the SureLab D7 Studio can produce premium quality prints, panoramics, folded displays and cards, on a wide range of media, including paper-based matte, glossy and lustre media, and in a range of sizes (from 4inches up to A4 wide and from 3.5- 39 inches long). It also supports a wide range of inputs, such as memory cards, USB, CD/DVD, Bluetooth, Facebook and smartphones/tablets, making it quick and easy to reproduce designs and photos in a creative way, with first class results.
Duncan Ferguson, Director, Professional Graphics, Epson Europe, says: “The SureLab D7 Studio offers a tailored, scalable solution for photo bureaux, copyshops, retail businesses and on-site photographers who want to expand their business by offering products and services to drive new revenue streams, while further benefitting from low cost-per-print.”
The SureLab D7 Studio includes a self-service, touch screen order terminal and two printers.
A further three extensions can be added, increasing the number of printers linked to the terminal, up to a total of eight. These can be used simultaneously, all controlled through the order terminal with a 22-inch multi-touch screen.
Drawing from Epson’s success in professional photo printing, crisp and vivid image quality is assured by its proven Micro PiezoTM printhead technology and UltraChrome D6-S ink. The SureLab D7 Studio is low maintenance and has a long-lasting blade, which help to reduce downtime and save time and money.
The SureLab D7 Studio is available from today.
