The EPSON Stylus
®
 Pro 9000 series printers are the ultimate wide-format 
color ink jets. Setting new standards in image quality, media handling, and 
performance, the EPSON Stylus Pro 9000 has redefined the wide format 
printing industry. The breakthrough EPSON Stylus Pro 9500 gives you 
photographic quality with EPSON Archival
 ink technology—for images 
that last a lifetime.
EPSON’s Micro Piezo
®
 dual density droplet (DX3
) print technology 
includes a precise and consistent dot size and an innovative six-color, 
high-capacity, quick-drying ink system. EPSON Archival ink achieves the 
widest color gamut available in a pigment solution, with color performance 
approaching EPSON dye-based ink.
With resolutions up to 1440 dpi, the EPSON Stylus Pro 9000 series printers 
support two 44-inch media rolls and cut sheets up to 1.5 mm thick. Both 
printers incorporate EPSON’s DC-based motor technology, which allows 
for superior print engine accuracy, even during bidirectional printing modes 
at some of the fastest production speeds in the industry. 
For network productivity, a high performance EFI
®
 Fiery
® 
X2 RIP server 
may be purchased. The EPSON RS-5100 server supports a variety of 
network configurations and protocols, with full compatibility for 
Macintosh,
®
 Microsoft
®
 Windows
®
2000, Windows 98, Windows 95, 
Windows NT,
®
 and UNIX
®
 computers. The Fiery X2 RIP provides full 
multitasking for simultaneous spooling, Adobe
®
 PostScript
®
 3 processing, 
and printing. 
The printers may also be equipped with an optional 44-inch auto take-up 
reel that is compatible with most lamination systems and lets you run long 
print jobs unattended. For complete flexibility, the EPSON Stylus Pro 9000 
series printers also support many third-party RIPs and come with custom 
EPSON
®
 drivers and utilities for photographs and other non-PostScript 
printing.
