Epson has nabbed all three Buyers Lab (BLI) 2022 Wide Format Pick Award in the signage category. The awards - from Independent testing services company Keypoint Intelligence - acknowledges the products that gave the best performances in its its lab testing in the last 24 months.
The awards went to: the Epson SureColor SC-S60600L (high-production CMYK eco-solvent/latex 54/64in printer); Epson SureColor SC-S80600L (outstanding gamut expansion eco-solvent/latex 54/64in printer); and the Epson SureColor SC-R5000 Series (outstanding enhanced CMYK eco-solvent/latex 54/64in Printer).
David Sweetnam, director of research and lab services EU/Asia at Keypoint Intelligence, said: “Because of the pandemic, these awards cover tested products launched over the last two years, with several vendors submitting for the first time. There was stiff competition, but in the end, Epson won across three of our wide format signage pick categories. These three devices delivered impressive productivity and have noteworthy usability design coupled with the class-leading output quality that we have come to expect. Epson’s new resin ink devices are targeted at the latex ink market, while the other two winners are equipped with Epson’s new Edge Rip and bulk-ink formulation matched up to the same standards of performance that helped their cartridge-based siblings claim BLI Awards in 2018.”
