    Description

    The new SureColor P9070 44 inch Inkjet Printer is the successor to the very popular Stylus Pro 9900 and comes with an improved set of UltraChrome® HDX all-pigment aqueous ink for accurate colour with an enhanced gamut, d-max and image durability.

    Epson have sensibly taken an 'if-it-aint-broke' approach with their new models, tweaking the existing x900 platform for even better performance. You get the same excellent media handling, a robust print head (we have printed som many kilometres of paper with our x900 series of printers that we've lost count!), and second-to-none print quality.

    The two key markets these printers are aimed at are fine art imaging (photographic or illustrative/art reproduction), and proofing.

    For Fine Art Imaging, you use the excellent multiple black ink system for excellent neutral neutrals and unrivalled gamut coverage (yes those Canons have more ink colours in them, but they also have noticeably less good screening (dot mixing) technology meaning they need those extra inks just to get close to the Epson gamut coverage).

    Epson's printer driver is absolutely fanatastic out of the box and offers extremely good performance that is very difficult to improve upon with a RIP, making for a super simple set up and workflow. Of course you can use a RIP for full control if you want, but most RIPs now simply embed the Epson driver (aka Halftone Module) within themselves as the performance is so good.

    For proofing, you can use the new optional Epson Violet ink, to extend the gamut to near perfect coverage of the Pantone Formula Guide Solid colours (99%). This makes these machines ideal in packaging proofing environments.

    Put simply, these machines are reliable, easy to run and offer best in class quality. With an installed user base far exceeding any other brand, they are the benchmark archival image printers in the world today.

    Features:

    • Amazing Print Quality – Epson 2880x1440dpi TFP head with VSDT enables consistent and predictable output in ultra-high resolution with superior half tones and an optimised ink density.
    • Supreme Colour – 10 colour Epson UltraChrome HDX ink enables prints with a high dMax and wide colour gamut, can be configured with either Light Light Black for a 98% PANTONE certified coverage or Violet for 99% coverage.
    • Outstanding B&W – produces gallery quality black-and-white images with auto switching between Photo & Matte ink for output on different media types.
    • Excellent Image Stability – prints dry quickly to become water and scratch resistant. Output can be stored for extended periods with excellent lightfastness*.

    Specifications

    Please note: Specifications are provided as a guide only.

    We try very hard to keep these up to date and correct, but if a particular specification is really critical to you, then please double check the specification directly with the manufacturer. Some features may of course have caveats not fully described here.

    To get more information about a particular specification, use the arrow to get a 'Specxplanation'.

    • Inkset Name
      Ultrachrome HDX With Light Light Black Or Violet
    • Inkset Type, # Inks
      Pigment, 11 inks
    • Carriage Width
      1118mm(44")

      The Carriage Width is the maximum width of paper (on the short side) that can be used in the printer.

      Colloquially printers are more commonly referred to as 'A4, 'A3+' or 'A2' printers in Australia but of course not every country in the world uses the A paper system.

      Typically, A4 printers have a 9" carriage, A3+ printers are 13" carriage, and A2 printers a 17" carriage.

    • High Quality Black and White?

      Does the printer have a dedicated, high quality black and white mode for photographic printing?

      Almost all ink printers have a 'black only' type mode, but that is quite different to what we're talking about here.

      In this mode, called by Epson 'Advanced Black and White' mode or simply ABW, the printer uses multiple grey inks (AKA light black, light light black inks) to produce smooth black and white tones with little to no colour interference.

    • Maximum Print Resolution
      2880 x 1440

      This is the maximum dot resolution of the print head. The higher the number, the smaller the dots of ink the printer can place.

      Note that this has nothing to do with image resolution of course. The printer uses several ink dots to form the colour of one pixel. However the dots are so fine and closely mixed together you can only really see this screening pattern with a magnifying glass.

    • Dimensions
      Paper Basket Closed: 186cm (W) x 66cm (D) x 121cm (H)
      Paper Basket Open: 186cm (W) x 131cm (D) x 121cm (H)
    • Connections
      USB
      Ethernet

      What physical connections are possible? Wireless support is listed separately below.

      Options include USB, Firewire, Thunderbolt, and Ethernet.

    • Included Cables
      None
    • Wireless Support

      Does the printer support wireless, and if so what speeds and standards.

      Most modern routers will offer at least G, which is fast enough to run a printer. N and AC are quicker and good to have but they won't make your printer faster unfortunately!

    • Direct Device Printing Support

      If you use Apple devices like the iPad or iPhone, you'll want Apple Print support, allowing you to print directly from your device to the printer.

      For Android devices, Google Cloud Print is the equivalent system.

      Epson Connect offers a further option but generally you'll use one of the two main options above with modern devices.

    • Disc Printing Support?

      Does the printer support printing to printable CDs and DVDs?

    • Sheet Sizes Supported
      A4
      A3
      A3+
      A2
      A1
      A0

      The sheet sizes supported by the printer out of the box. You can also generally define your own custom sheet sizes in the driver if you want to use unusually sized materials.

      (Note, though, that you can't typically print borderless to custom sheet sizes - the standard workaround is to use sheets slightly larger than you need, and then simply guillotine to the printed edge after printing).

    • Borderless Sheet Sizes Supported
      None
    • Roll Printing Support?

      Does the printer support roll media, and do you need an accessory device for this?

      Even if the printer doesn't support roll media, you can still buy rolls, cut sheets from the roll, and use those. Just leave them to flatten for a few days as paper curl can be a painful issue with printers.

    • Roll Width Support
      Rolls up to 44" Wide
    • Borderless Printing On Rolls?

      Can the printer print right to the edge when using roll media?
