Epson Updates Inks in Wide-Format ModelsLightfastness improved for Stylus Pro 7000, 9000
The Epson Photographic Dye inks for the 9000 and 7000 will be the same ones available for the Stylus Pro 10000. The new ink set consists of an improved yellow and light magenta, along with the existing black, cyan, light cyan and magenta Standard Dye inks. Epson says the new lightfastness is rated at 26 years under glass and offers "greater color stability within the first 24 hours after printing." No changes are planned for the black, cyan, light cyan and magenta inks.
Epson says that third-party developers will develop new lookup tables for the new set of inks, providing better RIP compatibility. However, those who do not need the new inks can continue to use the old inks with their current RIPs.
The new inks will be available in early November through Epson's Profocus dealers. The new cartridges will be the same price as the standard cartridges.
