The Epson UltraChrome K3 ink is a new formulation incorporating a new pigment and resin coating. It produces a wide colour gamut for accurate reproduction of saturated colours and accurate simulation of industry proofing standards. Furthermore it delivers prints that look good in any lighting condition and have a professional finish.

It features, as the name suggest, three shades of black (K) ink. They are, photo or matte black, light black and light light black. The colour inks include, cyan, magenta, yellow, light cyan, and light magenta. The combination provides more neutral gradations in colour and black and white prints, resulting in life-like replication of skin tones. It also provides excellent greyscale performance and smoother tonal reproduction for high-quality black and white printing.

A new improved driver technology is included with all of the new printers. It features printer colour adjustment modes, making it easy to print in whatever mode matches the colour space of the digital input, for example, sRGB or Adobe RGB.

Featuring Epsons core technologies, the range delivers results where quality cannot be compromised. These include Epsons Micro Piezo print head technology, which precisely controls the amount of ink delivered, resulting in finely detailed images. The range also incorporates Epsons Variable-sized Droplet Technology, which automatically adjusts the size of the droplet according to the image content.
