Epson’s first scalable photo microlab

Epson has announced the launch of the SureLab D7 Studio. This scalable and flexible solution can be tailored to suit users’ needs, and used either on the shop floor as a self-service order terminal or – by adding the SureLab D700 printer – as a production microlab behind-the-counter.

Designed to create opportunity for imaging businesses and High Street retailers, the SureLab D7 Studio can produce premium quality prints, panoramics, folded displays and cards, on a wide range of media, including paper-based matte, glossy and lustre media, and in a range of sizes (from 4inches up to A4 wide and from 3.5- 39 inches long). It also supports a wide range of inputs, such as memory cards, USB, CD/DVD, Bluetooth, Facebook and smartphones/tablets, making it quick and easy to reproduce designs and photos in a creative way, with first class results.

Duncan Ferguson, Director, Professional Graphics, Epson Europe, says: “The SureLab D7 Studio offers a tailored, scalable solution for photo bureaus and copyshops who want to expand their business by offering products and services to drive new revenue streams, while further benefitting from low cost-per-print.”

The SureLab D7 Studio includes a self-service, touch screen order terminal and two printers. A further three extensions can be added, increasing the number of printers linked to the terminal, up to a total of eight. These can be used simultaneously, all controlled through the order terminal with a 22-inch multi-touch screen.

Drawing from Epson’s success in professional photo printing, crisp and vivid image quality is assured by its proven Micro Piezo printhead technology and UltraChrome D6-S ink. The SureLab D7 Studio is low maintenance and has a long-lasting blade, which help to reduce downtime and save time and money.
