Epson Stylus Pro 4800 Printer

Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding professionals, the Epson Stylus Pro 4800 incorporates a unique 17-inch wide printer design with a breakthrough new 8-color ink technology, forcing us to reconsider what's possible from photographic ink jet printing.


All New 8-Channel Print Head Technology

  • Print head design capable of handling eight separate ink channels
  • 1-inch wide high-performance print head with 180 nozzles per channel

Maximum Resolution of 2880 x 1440 dpi

  • Incredibly sharp text and line art
  • Extremely fine blends and photographic transitions

Variable-Sized Droplet with AMC Technology

  • Produces variable-sized droplets as small as 3.5 picoliter to greatly decrease print times while optimizing photographic quality
  • Proprietary Active Meniscus Control (AMC) technology precisely controls the curvature of every ink droplet within each nozzle before releasing it onto the media. The result is extremely sharp and accurate placement of ink droplets for outstanding photographic print quality.

Epson PreciseColor Technology

    In order to ensure consistent printing between multiple Stylus Pro printers of the same model, Epson has enhanced the production process to include colorimetric calibration. This system evaluates and adjusts each printer's difference at the manufacturing stage, assuring you of consistent color output from printer to printer.

Automatic Print Head Alignment Technology

  • Built-in sensor reads printed data for highly precise alignments of all color channels
  • Aligns both single and bi-directional print modes.

Automatic Print Head Cleaning Technology

  • Built-in sensor reads nozzle check pattern and automatically cleans print head if any problems are found; even partially clogged nozzles

Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink Technology

All New 8-Color Pigment-Based Ink System

  • High-density pigments for an extremely wide color gamut
  • Professional print permanence ratings for truly sellable quality prints
  • High-gloss Microcrystal Encapsulation Technology for reduced gloss differential
  • Superior scratch resistance from improved pigment and resin chemistry
  • Color is stable immediately after printing; no short-term color shifting
  • Depending upon media; produces a black density up to 2.3 with an L* value of 4.1*
    *Data based on Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper (250)

New Three-Level Black Ink Technology

  • Simultaneously uses Black, Light Black, and Light Light Black inks
  • Significantly improves the printer's gray balance while eliminating color casts
  • Impressive midtones and highlights for a smoother tonal range
  • Virtually eliminates the metamerism and bronzing of basic pigment chemistry
  • Enhances the ICC profiling process for ColorSync and ICM workflows

New Advanced Black and White Printing Technology

  • Unique driver technology taking full advantage of our three-level black system to produce professional black and white prints from color or grayscale image files
  • Proprietary Epson screening technology developed specifically for black and white printing
  • Produces a truly consistent image with no color crossover or color cast
  • Produces sellable quality neutral and toned black and white prints from a single ink set

Two User-Exchangeable Black Ink Modes

    Printer can utilize two different black ink modes; Photo Black or Matte Black. This innovative solution optimizes the black ink density for various media types, dramatically improving the final print quality.

    The standard Photo Black ink mode can be used for any media type with professional results. However, for certain Epson media types such as Velvet Fine Art, Enhanced Matte, and UltraSmooth Fine Art, using the optional Matte Black ink mode instead, will dramatically increase your black optical density for even better print quality.
