PrecisionCore Technology
Possibly the most advanced inkjet printhead technology ever developed, this revolutionary printhead is capable of producing outstanding performance and long-lasting quality with ultra-precise control of dot sizes, shapes and placements. To further ensure high quality results every time, the print nozzles are also capable of producing a wide variety of droplet sizes, which enables both fine detail and quick filling of larger areas all at a single pass.

Photographic Clarity, Proofing Accuracy, Consistently Vibrant Quality
The Ultrachrome HDX ink set on the SC-P5000 achieves a wide colour gamut with the newly-added violet ink, providing the ultimate proofing solution. The extreme colour gamut makes it possible to hit spot and client-specific colours accurately and consistently, achieving PANTONE coverage of 99%*. It is compatible with the widest range of certified proofing media in the industry and the colour prints last up to 60 years.

*PANTONE® is the property of Pantone LLC. 99% coverage of PANTONE FORMULA GUIDE solid coated palette based on Epson Proofing Paper White Semi-matte printed with Epson printer driver at 2880x1440dpi. PANTONE coverage may vary when printed with a third-party RIP.

Designed for Convenience
Epson Colour Calibration Utility
To enable you to work more efficiently across multiple networked printers, the SC-P5000 comes with the Epson Colour Calibration Utility. This measures colour density and concentration and allows you to manage your printer network from a central point which makes calibrating your printers easier and faster.

Epson Print Layout Software
This software allows easy access to all major functions and helps to manage print layouts and colours with standard bundled industry-leading RIP software. This, coupled with high-precision media feed technology, including a newly developed camera-based paper feed stabiliser and media inductive roller system, and ensure smooth operation even when unattended.

*1 Figures represent print times only for the Epson test sample image as shown, produced on Plain (draft-fine modes). Print speeds are engine only with total throughout time dependent on workflow configuration, paper type, software, file format/size, print resolution, ink coverage, networking, and other factors.

*2 Users need to choose to configure the machine with either light light black or violet. Once this choice has been made, it is final and cannot be undone or switched at a later time. 99% Pantone coverage requires configuration with violet ink. Configured with light light black provides 98% Pantone coverage.
