Seiko Epson has won 2022 Red Dot Awards in the product design category for its SD-10 spectrophotometer and the Epson SL-D1000 series of commercial photo printers.
Epson launched the SD-10 - a highly accurate, compact and affordable colour measurement device, equipped with a MEMS Fabry-Perot tunable filter developed by Epson – in December 2021.
“You can use it to digitize colour matching, a conventionally time-consuming part of printing done manually, and link it with a smartphone or cloud service to centrally manage colour information for smoother printing process," Epson said. "Pocket-sized and portable, it allows you to measure colours anytime, anywhere."
SL-D1000 Series Commercial Photo Printers
“These commercial photo printers are loaded with features that professional photofinishing services need," said Epson.
“The box shape enables multiple units to fit neatly on shop counters. With a new duplex feeder, users can now perform double-sided cut printing in addition to roll paper printing as on the SL-D1000's predecessor. The use of ink packs increased the amount of available ink by 25%* and reduced the amount of space needed to store used ink by about 55%*.”

It’s the sixth consecutive year that Seiko Epson Corporation has won Red Dot Awards in the product design category.
