It provides outstanding output in a platform that is flexible, reliable and easy to maintain.


The SC-P5070 is a 17" (432mm) Large Format Printer that is designed for premium photo, fine art, proofing & packaging design. It supports a wide range of standard and specialist media in roll and sheet formats.

It uses Epson’s latest UltraChrome® HDX all-pigment aqueous ink for accurate colour with an enhanced gamut, Dmax and image durability. The printer uses a 10 colour ink configuration with two levels of black, a choice of a third black or alternative Violet ink for outstanding colour and B&W prints with up to 99% PANTONE® coverage. An optional SpectroProofer (ILS30) is available for precision colour management and ISO standard proofing work.

Supreme Imaging

The SureColor Prographics range features Epson’s famous Thin Film MicroPiezo head technology with a 2880x1440dpi maximum print resolution. Unlike competing mechanisms that are based on heat, the TFP uses an electro-mechanical movement that is not only kinder to the ink chemistry for better imaging with more stable output, but consumes less power, is more flexible and more durable. Micro-fine drop-on-demand nozzles enable superior dot shaping with reduced overspray, more precise placement and volume/density control. The P5070 features a head with 10 channels that is complemented with an advanced LUT (Look-Up-Table) and a 11 cartridge supply system with automatic Matte / Photo Black switching that optimises the dynamic range on different media types. The printer incorporates VSDT (Variable-size Droplet Technology) that enhances image quality with superior half-tones and optimised colour density while also minimising ink consumption. A special coating on the head works in conjunction with self-monitoring, cleaning, and alignment systems to ensure predictable, consistent and reliable output with minimal user maintenance.

UltraChrome HDX ink is an expansion of Epson’s famous HDR/K3 family and new HD series. Using an aqueous (water based) all-pigment formulation, it produces prints with an unsurpassed colour gamut that dry quickly to become water and scratch resistant. The HDX set features improved Matte and Photo Black formulations that provide an enhanced Dmax for brighter prints with an enhanced tonal range in both B/W and colour. The ink set includes light black ink for improved balance, Vivid Magenta for brighter blues and pinks, Orange for fine facial tones and lighting effects, as well as Green for superior landscape and environmental imaging. It includes a new Yellow ink that provides improved UV resistance for enhanced image stability and at initial startup the printer can be configured with either a Light Light Black ink for flexible photo and fine art work with a 98% PANTONE® coverage or Violet for specialist proofing and packaging work with a 99% coverage.***

The SureColor P range is colorimetric calibrated during assembly to ensure that colour proofs, photographic and fine–art prints from different printers of the same model remain totally consistent. The ink features a colour constancy level of less than DeltaE 1.0 so that prints remain visually consistent when viewed under different lights and lighting conditions. An optional spectrophotometer is available to suit all models in the range. Co-developed with X-Rite®, the SpectroProofer provides extreme measurement accuracy and when driven with an appropriate RIP it enables precision proofing as well as the automation of colour management into operational workflows. The ILS 30 SpectroProofer mounts directly to the printer and selectable UV filtering (ISO M0, M2 & M1).


Flexible and Easy to Operate


The SC-P5070 is a desktop printer with a 17" (432mm) wide carriage and 4 paper paths. It supports a wide range of media from basic bond to photo and fine-art paper, transparent film to translucent back-lit, canvas to specialist synthetics. It accepts roll media with fast spindle-less mounting, automatic skew adjustment, and a high-speed auto-cutter which will cut most stocks including canvas. The printer supports sheet media and has a straight through paper path for solid board up to 1.5mm thick. It supports edge-to-edge printing on both sheet and roll media and will print full borderless on roll stocks. The printer ships with one roll media adaptor set that supports rolls with either 2” or 3” cores. Additional sets can be ordered separately for environments that involve high volume work and/or multiple media types. Optional roll paper belts are also available to help maintain tension in rolls during storage. A barcode based media management system helps track consumption on individual rolls while also facilitating rapid exchange with automatic re-configuration for different media types.

The  SureColor Prographics range has been designed for professional and commercial applications. All models feature fast and flexible networking facilities (1000Base-T). They have large colour LCD screens with an easy to follow menu system and in-built help. They can be configured remotely and have driver software to suit most operating systems. The range has been designed to enable volume production with consistent results and reliable operation with minimal maintenance. Ink cartridges are pressurised to ensure maximum output precision and feature an enhanced capacity for extended operation and with a reduced cost per print. Printers are covered with a standard 1 Year On-Site Warranty that can be extended through optional Service Packs that can be purchased concurrent with the printer or separately.**

* Accelerated testing of prints on specialty photo & fine art media displayed indoors under glass indicates light stability of up to 200 years for colour and 400 years for B&W. IMPORTANT: Actual stability will vary according to the media, image, surface treatment, display conditions, light intensity, humidity and atmospheric conditions. Epson does not provide any warranty or guarantee on the longevity of prints. For further details on light stability and image preservation please visit
