An advanced and affordable A4 colour laser printing
The EPSON AcuLaser C1000 is a fast, value for money high quality laser
printer designed for small businesses or the home office. EPSON’s colour
printing technologies provide truly outstanding levels of flexibility and
performance, while compact dimensions & simple maintenance ensure
maximum practicality & ease of operation. Superb colour & mono results

The outstanding print quality of the EPSON AcuLaser C1000 is achieved

EPSON AcuLaser Fine
Dot Control Technology
EPSON Intelligent
Line Screening Technology
EPSON’s AcuLaser Fine Dot Control
Technology boosts the printer’s original 600
dpi resolution to an effective 2400 dpi, by
controlling the size of each dot to one of
16 horizontal steps. This ensures
exceptional print quality, ensuring that all
your business documents have a
professional finish.
Developed from EPSON’s award winning
inkjet printers, and controlled by the
printer driver, this technology distinguishes
between photos, text & line drawings on a
page & automatically alters the Line
Screening & Colour Correction for each
area. This allows you to continue running
your business without any concerns about
whether you are getting the best output
from your printer.
EPSON AcuLaser PhotoEnhance 4
High Speed Colour Printing
when you want it
Also derived from EPSON’s inkjet products,
this improves the appearance of low
resolution images from digital cameras or
scanners. The effect is to make photos
appear sharper & thus enhance image
quality making sure your colour output has
the maximum impact.
With print speeds of 20ppm mono & 5ppm
colour, a rapid warm up time and 25 second
first colour print time the AcuLaser C1000
is the ideal printer for a growing business.
It is also ideal for producing such items as
direct mail, price lists and presentations at
any time efficiently and economically.
EPSON AcuLaser Colour RITech
EPSON Colour Resolution Improvement
Technology is a development of EPSON’s
own mono RIT – for smooth presentation of
colour text characters & curved lines. It
eliminates dotted or jagged edges in colour
text, and ensures that even finely detailed
areas are produced sharply, making charts,
graphs and schematics come alive with
clear, crisp tones.
Many business documents contain a
mixture of text and graphic elements.
With conventional laser printing
technology, there is often a significant
trade-off in quality – if the photos
look good, then the charts, graphs
and text inevitably suffer. AcuLaser
Intelligent Line Screening technology,
on the other hand, ensures there’s no
compromise – every item on the page
can be printed at optimum quality.
EPSON Colour-RITech keeps colour
definition sharp, with clean edges that
make charts and graphs stand out.
AcuLaser Fine Dot Control technology
ensures smooth gradations and faithful
reproduction of photographic images.
