Deer Park, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2006
MediaStreet Inc., a leading independent manufacturer of archival-quality inks with matched inkjet media and other innovative, digital solutions for the photographic, arts and consumer electronics industries, is introducing new versions of their award-winning line of Generations Inks, Photo Papers, and their unique Niagara Continuous Ink Flow System. The new products represent years of research and offer the professional photographer alternative, less expensive methods to produce long lasting digital prints. MediaStreet ink and paper has been rated to last beyond 100 years before noticeable fading, making them a favorite among artists, fine art photographers and collectors.
Media Street will demonstrate their extensive line of inkjet inks including the new Generations Quad-N-Color (G8) 100% Pigment Ink set. These inks were specifically developed to compliment the Epson R2400, R4800, 7800 and 9800 offering 3 levels of Black (and choice of "Photo" Black or "Matte" Black) offering rich, saturated and robust colors. This new ink set offers higher density pigments that deliver wider color gamut, superior black and white output all from a 100% pigment formulation for long lasting prints. A new line of photographic papers, which have been matched perfectly with the new inks, is also being introduced.
Niagara Continuous Ink Flow Systems
One of the most efficient systems available on the market, the Niagara Continuous Ink Flow System eliminates waste, increases efficiency and turns a desktop inkjet printer into a continuous printing workhorse. Moreover, photographers who use Niagara inks with the Bulk Feed System will realize a 90 percent cost savings in ink costs when using MediaStreet dye-based inks and an 80 percent savings when using pigment ink.
Archival B&W System
Media Street is introducing a new archival black-and-white inkjet system for the Epson 2200 designed by fine art photographer and digital imaging consultant Richard Wolfson. This new printing solution incorporates Media Street’s Generations QuadBlack (GQ) pigment ink set, a selection of photographic and fine art papers, plus a special print driver to produce “exhibition quality” black-and-white photographic prints. The company explains, “With the GQ Ink and software bundle, artists and printmakers can produce museum-quality prints with a desktop inkjet printer.” In addition to the new solution for the 2200 printer, the Generations QuadBlack (GQ) system is available for the Epson R200/R300/R320 and shortly for the 7000, 9000 and 4000.
The Generations QuadBlack solution prints a long, smooth gray scale from the lightest highlights to the deepest shadows without banding, posterization, or other artifacts. And the variable-tone GQ ink set lets users make cold, warm, neutral, or split tone (platinum) prints without changing inks, simply by selecting from the included library of pre-calibrated printing curves.
The full line of MediaStreet inkjet papers are ideally suited for high-quality photographic and fine art reproductions. From high impact glossy paper, to real artist grade canvas to fine art papers, the full range of professional photographers – commercial, event, outdoor, wedding, portrait, fine art – will find these papers will suited for a variety of applications.
The newest member of the MediaStreet paper family is their Quad-N-Color line featuring Glossy, Lustre and Photo Matte surfaces. The new papers are specifically matched to the newly introduced Quad-N-Color (G8) inks.
