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 (, 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:
