Epson Introduces New 64-Inch Fine Art Printer

Epson Introduces New 64-Inch Fine Art Printer

Advancements in digital imaging are driving demand for larger color and black-and-white prints, enabling increased print sizes without compromising quality. To support creative professionals looking to create large, high-quality, sellable output with uncompromising color, Epson has announced its most advanced 64-inch SureColor P-Series printer. Successor to the renowned SureColor P20000, the SureColor P20570 represents the pinnacle of professional printing technology.

"Fine art printers, professional photographers and artists have an incredibly challenging need to accurately reproduce art in high volume," said Andreas Goehring, director of professional imaging, Epson America. "Seven years in the making leveraging direct customer feedback, the SureColor P20570 meets this challenge, offering advanced features to enhance productivity and expand color gamut with increased black density. Leveraging UltraChrome PRO12 pigment ink, this 64-inch printer sets a new standard, pushing the boundaries of colors that can be reproduced for large, exhibition quality prints, creating art the way the artist intended the work to be seen."

The new SureColor P20570 redefines large format production and fine art printing. It combines a high-performance 12-channel PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead with Nozzle Verification Technology and UltraChrome PRO12 ink, including orange, green and violet ink, offering a professional printer with the widest color gamut in its class and industry-leading print permanence. Designed for high-volume print shops, it touts a high-capacity 1.6L ink pack system that eliminates the need for frequent cartridge changes and improves print shop efficiency and productivity while using up to 90% less plastic than cartridges.

With extensive media support, the SureColor P20570 produces exhibition-quality prints at speeds of more than 200 sq. ft./hr. It includes Epson Media Installer, a software application designed to help control parameters for successful printing with a variety of media, including thick fine art papers. Powerful tools include new Epson Edge Print Pro RIP software, with an Adobe PostScript 3-based engine, and Epson Cloud Solution PORT for production monitoring and fleet management.  

The Epson SureColor P20570 printer is currently undergoing rigorous 10-factor permanence testing by Wilhelm Imaging Research, a leading independent print permanence testing laboratory.  Wilhelm Imaging Research is conducting light-stability, long-term dark-storage testing and a variety of other permanence tests using a range of papers and canvas, with both color and black-and-white prints made with Epson's Advanced Black and White Mode. Wilhelm Imaging Research's sophisticated and unique human visual color perception-weighted permanence testing protocols are the world's only comprehensive print permanence tests that provide permanence predictions in years in a rigidly standardized manner. These protocols allow different inks and papers to be compared one with another across brands in a uniform and objective way.

"Testing is currently in progress, and it is expected that the high-stability 12-color UltraChrome PRO12 pigment inks utilized in the new Epson SureColor P20570 printer will have Wilhelm Imaging Research Display Permanence Ratings of up to 200 years for color prints and up to 400 years for black-and-white prints," said Henry Wilhelm, founder and director of research, Wilhelm Imaging Research. "Similar to previous test results with UltraChrome PRO12 inks, prints made on the highest quality Wilhelm Imaging Research permanence tested papers, such as the 100% pure cotton cellulose and OBA-free Epson Legacy line of papers and framed with UV-absorbing acrylic or displayed under museum-quality LED illumination, are predicted to achieve notably higher ratings. This will assure photographers, digital artists, galleries, museums and private collectors that their prints will remain in excellent condition far into the future when printed on these Epson papers with high-stability Epson UltraChrome PRO12 pigment inks."

The portable solution will automatically detect chart position and media thickness — making operation simple. It is compatible with a variety of media up to 13 mm thick, including textiles, vinyl, acrylic and plastics.

  • Compact, portable design – The included travel case makes it easy to travel with and store when not in use
  • Developed and supported by Epson – Epson Edge Color Lite drives the SD-10 and Auto Chart Reader from inside existing workflows in Epson Edge Print Pro


The Auto Chart Reader will be available in fall 2024 through Epson Authorized Professional Imaging Resellers for an estimated MSRP of $2,095. It is compatible with Epson SureColor printers that run Epson Edge Print. The Epson SD-10 Spectrophotometer is sold separately.
