Epson has launched so many new printers lately, that it’s easy to miss one or two in the avalanche. But it would be a pity to not have a look at the fast production photoprinter SC-P20000, because it really has a series of enhancements and updates compared to its predecessor, the older Epson Stylus Pro 11880.

Epson has four lines in the SureColor series, where the prefix F stands for fabrics (or textiles), S stands for Signage, T for technical. The SC-P20000 belong to the photo- and proofing section, and is the fastest and biggest model in that group, supporting up to 64ins or 162cm output.

The inkset for the SC-P20000 is optimised for fast production of high quality photo output both for colour and monochrome. It’s a 10-colour ink setup with five different blacks: Photo Black, Matte Black, Dark Grey, Grey and Light Grey. Both of the blacks have a higher density than before, and the switch between Photo Black and Matte Black is done automatically depending on what media is chosen. The colours are the traditional CMY plus Light Cyan and Light Magenta.
