Epson Claria Hi-Definition ink

The rumor is that Wilhelm has results for this product that are so good that Epson is still debating internally on how to present the results. As significant is the design of the supporting print head, which sports a 1.5pl minimum and 5, rather than the current 3 droplet sizes. The combination produces a stunning 4x6 in less than 15 seconds. I would be surprised if we don't see at least some of these advances in wide format.

From the Epson site:
"Claria Hi-Definition Ink is a revolutionary new six-color, dye-based ink technology that delivers unsurpassed image quality and long-lasting results. Claria is tailor-made to fit the needs of the discerning photo enthusiast. It provides vivid, true-to-life colors with a wide color gamut that's ideal for printing your best shots.

Best of all, photos printed with Claria ink will last longer than traditional, lab-processed photos. And, they'll even stand up to spills, smudges and fading. That means you can share and frame your favorite photos, or place them in an album — worry-free."
