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
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.
High Speed Colour Printing
when you want it
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.
EPSON Colour-RITech keeps colour
definition sharp, with clean edges that
make charts and graphs stand out.
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.
AcuLaser Fine Dot Control
technology ensures smooth
gradations and faithful
reproduction of
photographic images.
