Epson knows what an excellent platform the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition is and has once again arrived on day one with a hat full of plans and a raft of products. Among the many offerings crammed on the imaging solution giant’s stand today are its latest range of photo imaging products, laser multifunction devices (MFPs), convertible laser technology, and its range of large format printers (LFPs) and projectors. Epson’s new photo imaging products, which has pride of place on the vendor’s stand, includes the Photo Link range, which comprises the P-2000 Multimedia Storage Viewer, F-3200 Film Scanner, PictureMate 100 and PictureMate 500. The Epson P-2000 Multimedia Storage Viewer allows end users to store and preview digital photos, movies and music with excellent definition and picture quality — a real bonus as convergence becomes a reality for end users in the Middle East market. Furthermore, the Epson P-2000 also provides support for digital camera and camcorder movies and music files, and with a 40Gbyte hard disk drive. This means the solution can double up as a portable storage unit for end users’ PC or Mac files. The Epson PictureMate, which the team will be enthusiastically demonstrating throughout the week of the show, is a compact dedicated 4 x 6” photo printer that works with or without a personal computer. When connected to a computer it can be used with a user’s choice of imaging, editing or graphics software. In standalone mode it can make prints directly from flash memory cards. Users also have the option of printing wirelessly from mobile phones and personal digital assistants (PDAs) with the optional BlueTooth adapter. Epson laser printers, such as the AcuLaser 2600N and the AcuLaser C2600N series of convertible laser printers, will be pitched at business users during the five day event. Visitors to the vendor’s stand will also hear about Epson’s range of large format printers that offer high quality output for exhibition graphics, POS displays, CAD and GIS, fine art, photographs and printing proofs. The presence of a large number of information communication technology companies in the Middle East, and the increasing emphasis on e-services, e-learning and digitisation has presented numerous opportunities for Epson to exploit, according to the company. As such, Epson is using this year’s show to reach out to a larger audience and not just those interested in catching up with the firm’s latest products. “Participation in Gitex will further build our brand image and brand visibility across the Middle East region,” says Khalil El Dalu, general manager of Epson in the Middle East. “Gitex presents a number of business opportunities for Epson to tap into and participation in this exhibition forms an important part of our corporate strategy, both in the past and today,” he adds.
