Preview of Epson's CeBIT introductions
As we are all getting ready for the next event - we are at this moment in San Francisco, but we will fly almost directly to the CeBIT from here - we can already give a little preview of Epson's CeBIT introductions. This year's new line up will be a new range of digital cameras and a series of printers ranging from the very best in UltraChrome large format devices to six color products that produce photographs that have to be seen to be believed.
Designed for both the amateur and advanced user to develop, enlarge, edit and enhance their own pictures, the Stylus Photo 830U and Stylus Photo 935 deliver photographic output previously unmatched by other inkjet printers. Whether it's direct connection from the camera to the printer without the PC via the Stylus Photo 830U's front facing USB hub, or a standalone option without having to remove the memory card through the Stylus Photo 935, EPSON delivers all the benefits of high street processing, in the comfort of the home environment. Fast printing speeds, operating ease and high quality output makes the Stylus Photo 830U ideal for the budding amateur photographer looking for a complete camera / printer solution.Whilst the Stylus Photo 935 is more suited to the sophisticated user looking for Bluetooth compatibility or external connection with a CD-ROM device.
Designed to suit users looking for a total solution, the new digital camera range is compact, stylish and lightweight. Available in both 2 and 3MP versions with a modern design, users can not only enjoy the luxury of printing directly from the camera to an EPSON printer, but can also add fun frames using the inbuilt print framing feature. New technologies will be demonstrated which prove Epson's leadership, these include: USB Direct-Print - a technology open to all digital camera manufacturers to connect to EPSON standalone photo printers; Bluetooth photo printing, and Print Image Matching II. USB Direct-Print is a further evolution of computer-free printing, giving users the ability to print directly from any digital camera that supports the technology. Forthcoming USB Direct-Print enabled digital cameras will allow users to access printing functions on their EPSON printer via the camera's LCD screen. After capturing, and viewing, photos can be sent direct to print via a simple USB cable.
We will have to wait for some more days where we will see the official press release Epson will be making. The CeBIT 2003 event will start Wednesday March 12 till Wednesday March 19.
