New EPSON Stylus Photo RX600
Scan-Print-Copy Device Creates Photo Center for Both Traditional and Digital Images in Any
LONG BEACH, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Feb. 11, 2004 EPSON Stylus Photo RX600 Not Only Scans, Prints and Copies Photos, but also
Previews and Restores Old Slides, Transparencies and Traditional Photos into Brilliant
Epson is launching its most advanced scan-print-copy device to date with the new EPSON
Stylus Photo RX600. This photographic all-in-one is designed to not only view, scan, copy
and print photographs without a computer, but also restore old slides, negatives and
traditional printed photographs. The end results are true photographic quality prints
using Epson's superior six-color photo inks at resolutions as high as 5760 x 1440
"The Stylus Photo RX600 is without a
doubt the ultimate do-it-all solution for either traditional or digital photography,"
said Steve Semos, product manager, Epson. "This product offers outstanding
versatility for virtually any photographic project, not to mention everyday printing and
copying. Furthermore, it incorporates several of Epson's most advanced photographic
technologies such as Easy Photo Fix(TM) color restoration software, memory card slots, and
a 2.5-inch high-quality color LCD viewer, all for a very attractive price of $349."
The Stylus Photo RX600's six-color
printer uses variable-sized ink droplets as small as three picoliters to create intensely
detailed images with natural and vibrant colors. Users can produce BorderFree(TM) images
on a variety of traditional photo paper sizes such as 4"x 6", 5"x 7",
8"x 10", letter size and even panoramic. The printer also creates photos and
text quickly, delivering a 4"x 6" color print in about 39 seconds and up to 17
pages per minute of black text documents.(a)
Memory Card Slots and Color LCD Viewing
In addition to high-speed color printing,
the Stylus Photo RX600 features a wide selection of memory card slots designed to print
images directly from today's most popular digital cameras or from PictBridge- and USB
Direct Print-enabled digital cameras. A built-in 2.5-inch color display and easy-to-use
control panel also enables users to view and select images, see scans of prints, slides
and negatives as they happen, and even crop or resize photos. Furthermore, a convenient
proof sheet feature lets users choose the images they want to print directly from a memory
card and specify the print size and paper type. All of these functions and more can be
done without turning on a PC.
Memory cards supported include
CompactFlash(TM) I and II, SD, Smart Media(TM), Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, IBM
Microdrive(TM), xD-Picture Card, Sony Memory Stick(R), Memory Stick Pro, Sony MagicGate
and Mini Secure Digital (using an optional adapter). The Stylus Photo RX600 also makes it
easier for users to take images with them by scanning photographs and saving them directly
to a memory card.
In addition to card slots, a front USB
port allows users to plug in an external CD-R or Zip drive to save images from a memory
card directly to a disc, as well as print pictures directly from a picture CD. Users can
also connect an optional Bluetooth(TM) Print Adapter from Epson (sold separately) for
convenient wireless printing from a Bluetooth-enabled mobile camera phone, PDA or
Scanning, Photo Restoration and PC-Free
The Stylus Photo RX600 features a
high-performance, full-function scanner along with a built-in transparency adapter for
scanning 35mm slides and negatives, all without turning on a PC. This 2,400 x 4,800 dpi,
48-bit color scanner includes exclusive EPSON Easy Photo Fix(TM) color restoration
software, which gives users an easy solution for restoring old slides, negatives or prints
to their original brilliance with one touch of a button. In addition, users can lay
several photos on the scanner bed at one time and the Stylus Photo RX600 will identify
each photo, restore the color and create individual prints.
The Stylus Photo RX600 also delivers
fully automated scanning plus two advanced scanning modes for advanced custom control. New
EPSON Smart Panel(TM) software enables users to quickly scan photos, text or graphics with
extreme detail to the Internet, an e-mail software program, or a faxing software program.
This all-in-one also functions as a
stand-alone color copier that enables users to produce high-resolution, borderless color
photos or documents without a personal computer. Furthermore, they can create 2-up and
4-up copies to conserve paper and use a "repeat copy" mode to make multiple
copies of a single image onto one sheet of paper, producing items such as business cards
and wallet-size photos. The Stylus Photo RX600 also simplifies the process for making
poster-size enlargements using four, nine or 16 letter-size sheets that can be assembled
by the user to create one extra-large image or creative mosaic.
Individual Ink Cartridges
The EPSON Stylus Photo RX600 includes six
separate "snap-in/snap-out" ink cartridges to maximize ink yield -- one black
ink cartridge and five color ink cartridges (cyan, magenta, yellow, light cyan and light
magenta). Since these individual color inks can be replaced at any time, efficiency is
maximized, lowering the total cost of ownership. Each cartridge also contains a chip that
relays ink level information on the screen to the user via the printer driver, while
self-sealing valves preserve the ink up to six months if it's removed from the printer.
Therefore, partially depleted cartridges can be reinserted for later use.
The EPSON Stylus Photo RX600 works with
both Windows and Macintosh platforms and uses USB 2.0 High Speed connectivity and includes
a USB cable in the box.

The Stylus Photo RX600 is currently
shipping to computer superstores and specialty retail stores nationwide and can also be
