Epson Stylus Photo R285

Epson Stylus Photo R285 is a compact photo printer. Among of its main features include Claria photogenic ink system, Micro Piezo print head, Epson cartridge technology, Smart Valve ink cartridge technology, AcuPhotoTM half toning technology and PhotoEnhance technology.

Features

The Stylus Photo R285 features Micro Piezo print head which is a bubble system that uses the pressure produced by bursting bubbles of heated ink to fire the droplets of ink. Then, electricity passes through the Piezo elements and causes physical distortions, which helps to fire the ink. It also features single ink tanks allowing user replace the only color that has ran out individually that saves cost. In addition, it features Smart Valve ink cartridge technology that delivers efficient cartridge and also incorporates with Micro Piezo™ sensor technology that works with the ‘Intellidge' chip to reduce the required ‘Ink Safety Reserve' therefore minimizing the space required placing the cartridge. Additionally, it features AcuPhotoTM half toning technology that combines color look-up tables with high-definition half toning algorithms to deliver accurate colors in print that look better than traditional photographs. It works by converting RGB color input data into CMYK data and then transferring this into droplet information. The CMYK droplet information is sent to the Epson print head where it is turned into actual ink droplets that are fired onto the page producing exceptional prints. It also features PhotoEnhance technology which automatically adjusts the colors to deliver vibrant color produced in the prints.
