Epson UltraChrome HDX pigment ink technology.
Representing our latest generation of photographic ink technology, the 10-color UltraChrome HDX Ink set redefines the standard for photographic imaging excellence and print permanence. Utilizing newly developed core pigments — including Black inks 1.5 times denser than our previous generation — the level of photographic clarity, optical density and vibrancy sets a new benchmark for Epson. And, with our latest generation of color pigment technology, we’ve achieved a breakthrough in print permanence, resulting in prints of exceptional quality that will define your legacy.
Improved black density.
Higher-density Black pigments anchor the darkest possible tone in the print, producing a wider contrast ratio, and resulting in optically clearer and sharper images — for both color and black-and-white prints
Three-Level Black inks.
Available on the Standard and Designer Editions, this combination of Photo Black, Light Black and Light Light Black inks creates smooth, neutral tonal transitions, while bringing out even the most subtle details — for both color and black-and-white prints.
Advanced Black-and-White Photo Mode
Available on the Standard and Designer Editions, this advanced driver mode offers professional control to provide incredible neutral or toned black-and-white prints. Choose from one of four presets — neutral, warm, cool or sepia — or fine-tune your photo even further with density slider bars and the color toning wheel for a higher level of precision.
Increased print performance.
Based upon print permanence testing conducted by Wilhelm Imaging Research Inc., our latest pigment ink technology results in prints lasting up to twice as long as our previous generation of ink.
Advanced PrecisionCore printhead technology.
Developed to work exclusively with our unique Epson UltraChrome HDX Ink, the PrecisionCore TFP printhead is our most advanced printhead to date, achieving exceptional ink efficiency and a higher level of printhead reliability.
