Epson Stylus Pro 7700 Brochure

Epson Stylus Pro 7700/9700
Performance. Precision. Brilliance.
For more than a decade, Epson has set the standard by which all other
photographic printing technologies are judged. So, when our engineers decided
to build the ultimate printing technology for Engineering Scientific and Display
Signage applications, we focused on three main goals — Performance, Precision,
and Brilliance.
Introducing the all-new Epson Stylus® Pro 7700 and 9700 printers
The Epson Stylus Pro 7700 (24-inch) and Epson Stylus Pro 9700 (44-inch)
incorporate our latest achievements in high-performance ink jet printing. By
combining the extreme precision of our MicroPiezo® TFP™ print head with the
extraordinary performance of Epson UltraChrome® Vivid Magenta Ink, our newest
generation of Epson Stylus Pro printers represent a level of printing technology
unprecedented within the Engineering Scientific and Display Signage markets.
Our advanced Epson MicroPiezo TFP print head is capable of producing
extremely precise text and line-art, along with brilliant photographic quality prints,
at speeds almost twice as fast as our previous generation. And, with our latest
ink-repelling coating and auto nozzle verification technologies, clogged nozzles
are virtually eliminated.
Epson UltraChrome Vivid Magenta represents our latest generation of pigment
ink technology. Utilizing four colors — including Dual Black ink technology —
Epson UltraChrome Vivid Magenta Ink produces industry-leading color with true
archival capability. Even more remarkable, when combined with our new Epson
AccuPhoto™ HD screening technology, Epson has once again raised the level of
photographic print quality, while setting a new benchmark standard for line-art
precision reproduction and color accuracy.
High-Precision Ten-Channel Epson MicroPiezo TFP™ Print Head
High-Precision Ten-Channel Epson MicroPiezo TFP print head
Thin Film Piezo (TFP) print head design capable of extreme dot
placement accuracy
One-inch wide, high performance print head with 720 nozzles per color
Extreme line accuracy of +/- 0.1% at line weights as low as 28 micrometers
All-new ink repelling coating for dramatically reduce nozzle clogging
Produces variable-sized droplets as small as 3.5 picoliters to greatly decrease
print times while optimizing photographic quality
Epson UltraChrome with Vivid Magenta Ink Technology
Next Generation Four-Color Pigment-Based Ink System
Unique High Dynamic Range pigments for an extremely wide color gamut
Automatic Dual Black Ink Modes
With both Photo and Matte Black ink cartridges installed simultaneously, the
Epson Stylus Pro 7700 and 9700 series printers automatically utilize the optimal
Black ink mode, delivering maximum black density for the chosen media.
The standard Photo Black ink mode can be used for any media type with
professional results. However, for certain media types, such as plain bond and
tracing papers, using the Matte Black ink mode will dramatically increase your
black optical density and sharpness for even better print quality.
Professional Media Handling
Compatible with virtually any media type, in roll or cut sheet, up to 24 or 44
inches wide
Accurate loading of cut-sheet media and up to 1.5 mm thick posterboard
All media is front-loaded via a unique straight-through media path

virtually error-free media use
Media bin safely captures multiple prints up to 24" x 36" or 44" x 36"
Optional Automatic Take-up Reel System for unattended production of large
print runs (available on the Epson Stylus Pro 9700 only)

A Based upon print engine speed only. Total throughput times depend upon front-end
RIP, file size, printer resolution, ink coverage, networking, etc. Normal Mode based
on Fine — 720 dpi.
B Cartridge yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings,
temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or
predominantly with one ink color. A variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge
after the "replace cartridge" signal. Part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for
priming the printer. Ink is used for both printing and print head maintenance. All inks
are used for both black and color printing. For more information about cartridges see
C Ink lightfastness rating based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media
displayed indoors under glass. Actual print stability will vary according to media,
printed image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity and atmospheric
conditions. Epson does not guarantee longevity of prints. For maximum print life,
display all prints under glass or lamination or properly store them.
