Nozzle clogging is reduced with advanced features like automatic print head alignment and cleaning as well as ink repelling coating technology.

The fast drying inks and the large surface media heater ensure that prints are dry even as they come off the printer. No need for special ventilation or external dryers. An optional high-speed dryer is available with the printer. The 4 front loading ink cartridges each have a 700 ml capacity so you won’t run out of ink mid-way during a print job. The spindle-less roll media loading system with EPSON LiftAssist technology combined with the motorized take-up reel and heavy media support reel ensure smooth media feed. The optional high-capacity roll support can handle media up to 150 lbs.

The availability of both Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 offers flexible connectivity. The full color LCD panel is simple to operate. Epson has bundled the ONYX GamaPrint™ Pro software along with every SureColor S30670 printer. This easy to use software provides a full RIP-queue and workflow, tools to recalibrate media as well as tools to size, crop and more.

HP Photosmart eStation All-In-One – the Color Inkjet AIO with a detachable color touch screen

By Databazaar Blog

HP_Photosmart_eStation

The 7” detachable control panel that doubles as a tablet is the most outstanding feature of the HP Photosmart eStation All-In-One. Besides being able to easily operate the print, copy, scan and fax functions from the detachable control panel, you can also use it as a wireless device to browse the web, access your emails, read the news, and download photos, documents and more. The control panel, known as the Zeen, can also be used to read eBooks.

The Photosmart eStation AIO is essentially for home offices. It has a 125-sheet input tray and a 20-sheet photo tray. You can print great borderless color photos with resolutions up to 9600 x 2400 dpi (on HP photo papers and 1200 input dpi). Duplex printing is a standard feature. The flatbed scanner can handle documents that are as large as 8.5” x 11.7”. Using the control panel you can scan directly to a memory card. Additional scan features are available when you use HP’s scan app from a connected PC.

The eFax® function allows you to send and receive faxes via the Internet rather than using a phone line. When you send a fax, it is sent over the Internet to the eFax® server from where it is delivered to the recipient’s fax machine. The process for receiving a fax is similar. The sender’s fax is sent to the eFax® server which in turn sends it to your eStation AIO using HP’s ePrint service.

HP’s customized apps provide great templates for photos and calendars and enable access to print from Yahoo, SnapFish and Facebook. Using HP ePrint, you can access this AIO from virtually anywhere. You can connect it to your computer using the USB 2.0 or the wireless interface.

Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6300/6350 and imagePROGRAF iPF8300 – large format printing solutions for creative professionals

By Databazaar Blog

Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6300

The 24” Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6300/6350 and the 44” iPF8300 deliver amazing prints with a wide range of shades. These printers use the 12-color LUCIA pigment ink system. Canon’s specially formulated LUCIA pigment inks consist of polymer coated pigment particles that increase the ink’s resistance to fading and scratching. The high-speed L-COA controller delivers extremely small ink droplets through 30,720 nozzles to produce high-definition images with fluent color gradation.

The built in 80GB hard drive in the iPF6350 and iPF8300 models lets you store and print a large number of files without locking up your computer’s resources. These printers can be connected to your network using Gigabit Ethernet or Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interfaces.

Canon has provided plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop and Digital Photo Professional so that you can take advantage of 16-bit image processing to enhance the quality of your output. The Media Configuration Tool allows you to control the various media options to get the results you want. The Accounting Manager computes and tracks printing costs and helps to minimize wastage. You can produce great posters using the optional PosterArtist tool.

The printer driver comes with high-precision print modes for images and text to enhance the sharpness and detail of your output. These printers have a built-in calibration system that can be easily adjusted to adapt to various media types, and can just as easily be reset to optimal factory settings. The intuitive control panel allows you to easily view paper settings, ink levels, job information and adjustments.
