Epson Wins Best Photo Printer and Best Photo Projector in Prestigious TIPA Awards
Epson recognised for its innovative high quality imaging products for the photographic industry
- TOKYO, Japan, April 23, 2014 –
Editors and journalists from photography magazines around the world have recognized two Epson products in the prestigious TIPA Awards 2014. The winning Epson products this year were the Epson Expression Photo XP-950, which was named “Best Photo Printer,” and the Epson EH-TW7200, which won the award for “Best Photo Projector.”
TIPA – the Technical Image Press Association – judges the innovation, technology, design, ease-of-use and price-to-performance ratio of products launched in a 12-month period to develop a shortlist and winner for each award category.
Ian Cameron, general manager for global sales and marketing support at Epson, commented, “TIPA members are all experts in the field and therefore select products according to the strictest standards. The panel has a huge variety of choice so we are very proud to learn that Epson products have once again been selected for these much valued awards.”
With members in nine European countries plus Australia, Canada, China, India, South Africa and the USA, TIPA is one of the largest and most influential photographic and imaging press associations in the world. Winning the two 2014 awards means that Epson has now received a total of 34 awards from TIPA for technologies and imaging products, including inkjet printers, inks, scanners and projectors, since 1997.
The award-winning products received the following citations from TIPA:
Epson Expression Photo XP-950
“The Epson Expression Photo XP-950 takes the “all-in-one” concept (a multifunction printer that, in the XP-950, includes text and photo printing, scanning and copying) to a new level with 11x17 inch capability using Claria Photo HD six-colour inks. Delivering 4 x 6 inch photos in less than 10 seconds, the unit also allows for wireless printing from phone, tablet or computer plus mobile solutions using the Epson Connect collection of apps. Scans up to 4800 dpi are available, as well as direct CD/DVD printing and adedicated photo paper tray. A dedicated rear tray allows for printing on heavier card stock and a 3.5-inch LCD with “gesture” navigation helps the user make use of all functions and features quickly and easily.”
“While aimed at the home video viewer, the Epson EH-TW7200 also delivers stunning still image quality for the home, camera club, educational and small room photo teaching environments. The unit offers wide and tele lens shift options, which allows for versatile setups and projection distances, as well as 2000 lumen output in both colour and white light. Vivid colour and contrast is delivered via a 120,000:1 contrast ratio. Resolution is Full HD 1080p and there’s a manual keystone correction control of up to +/- 30 degrees.
