Epson UltraChrome Ink Technology
7-Color Pigmented Inking System with Built-in Matte Black
Depending upon media type being used, printer automatically switches between Photo Black and Matte Black Ink modes to optimize black ink density Extremely wide color gamut for the most demanding color requirements No perceivable short-term color shift for stable prints immediately after printing Excellent water and lightfastness
Exclusive Light Black Ink for Superior Photographic Reproduction
Significantly improves the printers gray balance while eliminating color casts Dramatically improves the midtones and highlights for smoother transitions Reduces the metamerism effect of basic pigment ink chemistry Enhances the ICC profiling process for ColorSync and ICM workflows
Pigmented Ink Technology
Two Built-in Black Ink Modes Photo Black & Matte Black
Depending upon the media type being used, printer will automatically switch between Photo Black and Matte Black Ink modes to optimize black ink density for your specific media type. By optimizing the black ink density, optimal print quality can be achieved.
Epson Photo Black Ink Technology
Epsons patented Microcrystal Encapsulation Technology encapsulates an acrylic resin around the pigmented ink particle. This allows for optimal image quality on coated ink jet and other photographic medias such as Epson Premium Luster, Premium Glossy, and Premium Semimatte Photo Papers. Depending upon the media type, you can achieve a black D-Max up to 2.0
Epson Matte Black Ink Technology
Matte Black ink is a pigmented black ink that does not use our acrylic resin encapsulated technology and is optimized for plain paper or matte media types such as Epson Enhanced Matte, UltraSmooth Fine Art, Somerset Velvet, etc. Depending upon the media type, you can achieve a black D-Max up to 1.69
Photo Black can be used for ALL media types, but some plain paper or fine art media will benefit greatly by using the Matte Black Ink Technology
Epson UltraChrome Matte Black Ink Technology is superior to standard dye based inks for plain or matte type paper printing
Benefits Higher Optical Density Sharper Text & Line Art Standard Dye Black Inks Epson Matte Black Inks

Ink lightfastness ratings based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media, displayed indoors, under glass. Actual print stability will vary according to media, printed image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity, and atmospheric conditions. Epson does not guarantee longevity of prints. For maximum print life, display all prints under glass or lamination or properly store them. *Testing Still in Progress. Canvas with no protection and not placed behind glass (Bare Bulb) is expected to have a lightfastness rating of 45 years.

The Benefit of 17 x 22 Cut Sheet
Professional Photography Produces a Full 16 x 20 on 17 x 22 Cut Sheet Media Allows for enough room around the 16 x 20 image for matting and framing This maximizes the entire 16 x 20 print rather than needing to bleed into the image area for matting or mounting Cut sheet media always comes out flat versus roll based media - no curl! The high capacity paper tray can accommodate up to 50 sheets of 17 x 22 photographic media at once You can also produce full bleed 8x 10, 8x 12,11x 14,16x 20, and even up to 17 by any length using roll media

Competitive Summary Epson Stylus Pro 4000 vs. Epson Stylus Pro 7600
The choice between buying the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 or Epson Stylus Pro 7600 is difficult. The Epson Stylus Pro 7600 is expected to become the main competitor to the Epson Stylus Pro 4000. In the end, the main reasons to buy the SP4000 over the SP7600 is cut sheet media support, print speeds, and price. If youre a photographer working mainly in 16 x 20 or smaller formats the SP4000 is the better choice. If youre a graphic designer working mainly with cut-sheet media or 2-up spreads the SP4000 is the ultimate choice. If youre a prepress house or commercial printer looking for a contract quality proofing device, the SP4000 is the better choice for 2-up or newspaper volume proofing, while the SP7600 is better for 4-up or larger proofing jobs. In addition, you may find the SP4000 affordable enough to place at key customer locations for their use as a remote proofer. Since both the SP4000 and SP7600 use the exact same Epson UltraChrome Ink technology, they make an awesome team for all your professional proofing requirements. Many third-party RIP companies are developing complete remote proofing solutions around these technologies. Overall, the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 is about 1.9 times faster than the SP7600 while producing slightly better image quality. The ability to not have to switch between Photo Black and Matte Black ink modes is a huge benefit over the SP7600, which requires a manual ink cartridge switch in order to obtain the same ink mode. Having a high-capacity paper cassette capable of holding up to 50 sheets of 17 x 22 photographic or fine art media is extremely productive. For higher volume photographic printing (up to 17 x 22) the SP4000 is the best choice. The SP4000 is about $1,200 cheaper than the SP7600. The SP7600s major benefit is its ability to produce photographic prints up to 24 wide. Although the SP7600 can handle any cut sheet size from letter to 24 wide, the SP4000s built-in cassette makes it more convenient to use everyday when printing on media up to 17 x 22. CONCLUSION: Both the SP4000 and SP7600 are considered professional level photographic printers. If you need to produce work up to 24 wide, the SP7600 is your best choice otherwise the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 is the ultimate choice.
