Epson launches wide format control panel

Epson demonstrated a new Control Dashboard at last week’s Fespa show for its latest series of SureColor SCS solvent printers, which were themselves announced at the start of this year.

It’s a browser-based system that let’s users manage up to four of these printers. These new printers require a more detailed set of EMX media profiles that contain information on ink densities and half toning as well as roll-feeding and drying times alongside the normal colour parameters. These profiles can be managed through the RIP for each printer, but the Control Dashboard makes it easier to download and manage profiles for a group of printers.

The Dashboard database currently holds more than 200 different print media types and Epson is working to expand this further.

The Control Dashboard also provides a range of printer status and diagnostic features. As well as displaying information such as ink quantity, preheating information and nozzle checks, it allows device firmware updates and can display service information. The software is available for both Windows and Mac OS X, as well as supporting mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
