PRESS RELEASE: Epson launches the new Stylus SX415: the perfect all-in-one printer for document and PC-free photo printing
5 May 2009 – Epson, the pioneer in home printing technology, has today announced the launch of the Epson Stylus SX415, a new all-in-one printer with individual inks offering printing, scanning and copying in one compact, smart device.
As the Epson Stylus SX415 features a crystal-clear 6.3 cm LCD viewer, memory card slots and in-built PictBridge, there is no need for a PC to print all your photos. The LCD viewer also enables you to copy documents and photos, restore colour when scanning old faded images and view all menu functions with ease.
The Epson Stylus SX415 provides excellent value for money as it uses low cost individual inks so you only need to replace the colour used. These individual ink cartridges are easily identified by the ‘Cheetah’ image and are also available in a convenient, cost-saving multipack.
The Epson Stylus SX415 uses Epson DURABrite Ultra Ink, an advanced pigment-based technology that encapsulates the ink particles in a protective resin coating. This makes the ink resistant to water, smudging and can be used with highlighter pens. It also produces superb text definition and lab-quality photos which can last over 200 years when stored in an album.
This product also features Epson PhotoEnhance technology, enabling you to get the best out of your photos. Images featuring skin tones, landscapes and skylines are detected automatically and reproduced with enhanced colour settings to improve the overall tones and contrasts. Also included is Epson Easy Photo Print, which makes it easy to remove red-eye.
Additionally the Epson Stylus SX415 delivers crisp, clear copies of scanned photos using the 1200 dpi scanner, and thanks to Epson Easy Photo FixTM you can restore colour, remove dust and correct backlight when scanning old faded photos.
For the best quality photos, Epson recommends its range of glossy photo papers. Available in three finishes – Photo Paper, Glossy Photo Paper and Premium Glossy Photo Paper – the 3, 4 and 5 star rating makes choosing the right photo paper simple.
The Epson Stylus SX415 is an ENERGY STAR® qualified and Energy Savings Recommended all-in-one which reflects Epson’s ongoing focus to reduce the carbon emissions associated with the use of its products.
Richard Aplin, Product Manager at Epson UK says: “The versatile Epson Stylus SX415 offers high-quality output to meet all the printing, scanning and copying needs of our customers. What’s more it comes with individual ink cartridges, which is a cost-effective solution to printing. A busy home that has a variety of printing, scanning and copying needs ranging from homework, office documents, internet pages and photos, will find the SX415 an ideal, cost-effective all-in-one that doesn’t compromise on quality.”
