What is Epson ClariaTM Hi-Definition Ink?
Epson recently introduced the new Epson Stylus Photo 1400 printer as successor of the award-winning Epson Stylus Photo 1280. The main features of the new printer are:
  • Up to 5760 x 1440 optimized dpi and droplets as small as 1.5 picoliter
  • Automatic color and lighting correction for high quality photos
  • BorderFree® photos in different sizes (4" x 6", 5" x 7", 8" x 10", 8.5" x 11", 11" x 14", 12" x 12" and 13" x 19"
  • 4" x 6" photos in as fast as 46 seconds; 8" x 10" photos in as fast as 1 min 51 sec
  • Direct printing onto ink jet printable CD/DVDs
  • Convenient, individual ink cartridges with ClariaTM dye-based ink
  • DX5 MicroPiezo print head delivers five sizes of ink droplets for enhanced photographic printing
The printer will be offered from end of January at a street price of 399,- $.
Featuring the new dye-based ClariaTM inks, the photos printed with this new printer will be more than an alternative to traditionally lab-processed photos, says Epson. The durability of prints with the new ink generation is 200 years stored in a photo album and 98 years under display conditions.
The ClariaTM Inks have a quick-drying dye-based formula for smudge, scratch and water resistant prints on Epson Premium Photo Papers. The ink is absorbed into the paper coating to protect the printouts from external influences like humidity, moisture and spills.

OCP replacement inks are currently under development. As soon as OCP inks are available, we will provide you with more details about this new ink technology.
