PRESS RELEASE: EPSON LAUNCHES A NEW ADDITION TO THE PROFESSIONAL IMAGING WEB SITE – “ FOCAL POINTS”
LONG BEACH, Calif. – May 19, 2008 – Epson America, Inc. today announced “Focal Points,” a complement to the company’s Professional Imaging Web site, www.proimaging.epson.com. Focal Points features an array of written and video stories on how the industry’s leading creative professionals are obtaining new levels of success with Epson’s latest Professional Imaging products.
“Focal Points features content that is both informational and inspirational,” said Dan Steinhardt, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “The first round of stories, images and videos allow viewers to experience recent exhibitions in some of the most prestigious galleries and museums in Europe and North America that they otherwise may not have had the opportunity to see. The accounts are also a testament to the overwhelming trust leading artists have in Epson Professional Products.”
Several new stories are now live on Focal Points, including Movie Stars: Portraits by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. Greenfield-Sanders is a preeminent portraitist in the industry and his work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum and the Whitney Museum among many others. When invited to exhibit his images at larger-than-life sizes at the prestigious Museo Carlo Bilotti in Rome, it was essential that he use the latest technology to produce photographs worthy of the museum and his reputation. Using the Epson Stylus Pro® 11880 wide-format ink jet printer, he was able to produce black-and-white and color prints measuring 56 inches wide by 72 inches high. “The audience was stunned by the quality of the prints,” said Greenfield-Sanders.
Epson Professional Imaging products are engineered in collaboration with industry leaders to meet their demanding needs; needs like those of Greenfield-Sanders and others featured on Focal Points such as Lynn Goldsmith’s “Rock and Roll” exhibition at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor’s “Just Suppose” exhibition at the Harn Musuem, Pete Turner’s “Empowered by Color” exhibition at the George Eastman House and more.
