Epson America Inc. announced the Epson Stylus CX9475Fax ink jet all-in-one, designed to print, scan and share files over a wired or wireless network from virtually anywhere in the office or home. Epson's exclusive InstaNet technology enables Windows-based users to easily connect to a wireless network through a streamlined, automated configuration with absolute ease.
Network connectivity and installation is seamless with Epson's InstaNet technology that offers an intelligent, automated network installer that is easy to use. By integrating the printer and print server installation applications, InstaNet allows for a flawless setup of wireless and Ethernet connection within multi-user settings. The Epson CX9475Fax will be shipping in February for an estimated street price of $179.99 in major computer, office, mass merchant, and electronic superstores, and can also be purchased through mail order, PC manufacturers, the Internet, and Epson's own retail site.
R. Craig Allen, product manager, Consumer Ink Jet Printers, Epson commented: "Many people shy away from integrating networked solutions into their home or office environments because the configuration process can be complicated and overwhelming. With the Stylus CX9475Fax, Epson delivers a solution that not only provides a range of printing and scanning capabilities, but also enables consumers to print via a wireless or Ethernet network in minutes."
The Epson CX9475Fax is ideal for SOHO users and families, as well as novice digital camera owners who occasionally want to print borderless photos on photo paper. The all-in-one offers printing, copying, scanning, and high-speed black-and-white or color faxing, as well as the ability to print photos with or without a computer, using the 2.5-inch tilt LCD. In addition, it achieves fast speeds, producing both black and color text documents at up to 32 ppm, and copies up to 30 cpm.
The Epson CX9475Fax delivers:
- Advanced DX3 MicroPiezo print head technology: Epson's unique print head technology features smart nozzles that can each produce and precisely place three sizes of ink droplets. As a result, fewer nozzles are needed to quickly create superior documents and photos.
- DURABrite Ultra ink: This all-pigment, instant drying ink produces laser-quality text and brilliant color images on plain and photo paper, and is smudge and water resistant so documents and photos can be shared immediately. The inks are even highlighter resistant on plain paper, and offer fade resistance up to six times longer than leading competitive prints.(3)
- Individual ink cartridges and one standard set: The Epson CX9475Fax uses individual ink cartridges, allowing consumers to only replace the color needed. Additionally, with one standard ink set for both documents and photos, there is no need to swap out cartridges based on what is being printed.
- Automatic Document Feeder (ADF): A built-in, 30-page ADF enables users to fax, copy and scan stacks of important color or black-and-white documents in seconds for additional versatility.
- Fax features: Ideal for busy executives, this all-in-one offers high-speed color fax (33.6 Kbps), a 60-number speed dial, up to 100 pages of memory, automatic redial, auto answer, and usage reports.
- Auto Photo Correction with advanced face detection: This innovative technology corrects the lighting in poorly exposed images to produce perfect prints. It also includes advanced face detection, which automatically distinguishes people from scenery, correcting the color accordingly to ensure beautiful, natural skin tones.
- High-speed, multipurpose card slots: Compatible with all popular memory types, easily print brilliant photos without a computer or transfer files to and from a computer using these slots.
- PictBridge interface: Printing directly from a digital camera is easy with this interface.
- BorderFree photo printing: While optimized for everyday printing, the Epson CX9475Fax supports BorderFree photo printing sizes, including 3.5"x 5", 4"x 6", 5"x 7", 8"x 10", and letter sizes, with no perforations or edges to trim.
