Big Picture

Lyson has premiered three new media: Lyson Archival Matte, Lyson premium Gloss, and Lyson Premium Luster. The new media are available in most common sheet and professional roll sizes. The Archival Matte is a bright white 280-gsm fiber-based matte with a slightly textured finish and sheen that mimics traditional fiber-based photo media. The Premium Gloss is a bright white 12-mil high-gloss photo paper that is smooth and waterresistant. Compatible with both dye- and pigment-based inks, Premium Luster is a satin-finished 10.4-mil paper for photographic prints with a luster finish. Lyson's Grand Format Solvent inks, with a shelf-life of 18 months and 3-yr longevity without lamination (5 yr with lamination), are now available for use by the Gandinnovations Jeti printers, Mutoh Toucan, and Oce Arizona T220 flatbed printers. Introduced in late 2004, its Daylight Darkroom digital black-and-white printing system is now compatible with Windows XP and for use with the Epson Photo 1280, 2000, and 2200, as well as the Stylus Pro 2200, 4000, and the 7600/9600 machines. The Mac OS X version is also now compatible with all of the abovenamed printers. Lyson is working to extend this system to Canon printers.

The company also has debuted its Mimaki bulk ink system. And now Epson R800 printers can have a Cave Paint bulkfeed delivery system. In addition, Lyson Fotonic dye-based inks are now available in a bulk-feed system for the Canon i9900 photo printer. (Lyson: www.lysonusa.com)
