Large-format printers are at the heart of effective and creative work processes and therefore have to be adapted as best as possible. The aim in designing the SC-P7500 and SC-P9500 large-format printers was to provide an optimal solution that meets the contemporary requirements towards such printers in terms of functionality, form and performance. They have been developed as a continuation of the SC-P7000 and SC-P9000 predecessor models, which had set industry standards for high-quality images in the fine art, proofing and photo laboratory areas. The new models seamlessly pick up on their functional operability as outstandingly high-quality professional tools. Equipped with an internal lighting for immediate checking of the printed material, they allow for perfect colour adjustments and an optimised work process. The balanced, well-thought-out design appearance of these large-format printers conveys a strong sense of high quality and reliability. Their clear language of form and neutral colouring not only reduce interferences in the adjustment process, they also facilitate easy device integration in a wide variety of environments. The elegant housing offers a good direct view into the printer, so that users can check the printing status in real time and thus eliminate printing errors. The precise and reliable colour reproduction of the devices complies with the most exacting printing demands, while finished printouts are collected and stored safely, ensuring carefully handled printing results.
Statement by the Jury
The innovative design of these large-format printers integrates materials, function and form into a highly aesthetic, technically sophisticated unity. At the same time, it conveys a strong sense of high performance and reliability. The very well-conceived, neutral colour scheme of the devices facilitates more intrusion-free working processes. With their clear design, the devices have emerged as professional tools offering precise colour matching and adjustment.
