LONG BEACH, Calif., Feb. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For more than a dozen years, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has called upon Epson printers to flawlessly print thousands of borderless, color credentials for its annual Academy Awards® ceremony. This year, the annual gala airs on Sunday, February 26 and Epson will be present behind the scenes once again.
"This is the second year in a row that we've used the Epson WorkForce 60 printers to produce thousands of official backstage credentials," said Deborah Cahn, manager of Credential Operations for the Academy. "I found the Epson WorkForce printers to perform better than any other printer in the non-stop printing sessions required to get all the credentials printed, both in terms of speed and drying time, which is near-instant."
The WorkForce 60 delivers fast single- and double-sided print speeds – 15 ISO ppm black and 7.1 ISO ppm color single-sided; 7.4 ISO ppm black and 4.7 ISO ppm color two-sided – to help keep businesses running at full speed. Packaged in a sleek industrial design, it also includes a 250-sheet input capacity, and provides a reliable solution to small business owners that require professional looking prints in high volume, making it an ideal choice for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' biggest night.
