Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding professionals, the Epson Stylus Pro 4800 incorporates a unique 17-inch wide printer design with a breakthrough new 8-color ink technology, forcing to reconsider what's possible from photographic ink jet printing. Imagine producing archival prints with amazing color fidelity, gloss-level, and scratch resistance, while providing consistently stable colors that significantly outperform lesser ink technologies. Imagine producing professional neutral and toned black and white prints with higher density levels and virtually no metamerism or bronzing.Handling virtually any media type in roll or cut-sheet up to 17-inch wide, the Epson Stylus Pro 4800 incorporates a high-capacity paper tray capable of handling cut-sheet media up to 17" x 22". The Epson Stylus Pro 4800 represents a level of technology unprecedented in Epson's history. Combining the extreme precision of a Stylus Pro print engine, along with the extraordinary performance of UltraChrome K3 Ink Technology, results in a print void of any signs of how it was produced. Prepare to be amazed all over again.
