Media Street Debuts Archival Black-and-White System

Inkjet system for printing photos

Big Picture

Media Street's Generations QuadBlack (GQ) pigment ink is one of the cornerstones of its new archival black-and-white inkjet system for printing black-and-white photography. The system comprises the GQ inks, a special RIP, printing curves, ICC profiles, and matched Media Street substrates. Media Street claims that this combination of tools and products will produce museum-quality prints, even with an entry-level, sub-$100 printer (such as the Epson Stylus Photo R200).

The launch of the new system for Epson Stylus Photo R200/R300 printers was slated to take place in the first quarter of 2005; additional printers are slated for later this year.

In addition, Media Street has launched MyGallery (http://mygallery.media street.com), an online and off-line photo facility to store, share, and print photos (at home or at Media Street's Generations Print Lab). This free service can be used by professional photographers to share images with customers, or by consumers to upload and print photos. Part of the MyGallery service is the ability to use FXFoto photo-management software. (Media Street: www.mediastreet.com)
