Sydney, 30th October 2006: Epson has released the Epson P-3000 and P-5000 Multimedia Storage Viewers successors to the hugely popular Epson P-3000 and the P-4500.

P-3000The Epson P-3000 and P-5000 Multimedia Storage Viewers are perfect for professional and advanced amateur photographers who need high resolution viewing, maximum storage space and high speed data transfer of digital images and other files.

P-5000The Epson P-3000 and P-5000 use Epson’s Photo Fine Ultra technology which offers 24-bit true colour viewing with the world’s first four-colour filter LCD (red, green, blue and emerald green) in a portable display device.

With these improvements the Epson P-3000 and P-5000 have greatly expanded the visible colour gamut with coverage 119% wider than S-RGB.

The P-3000 and P-5000 feature a razor sharp 4.0” LCD screen (640 x 480 pixels VGA) which is the largest in its class and continues Epson’s technology leadership in mini-LCD display products.

A range of PictBridge, USB, SD and CF card connectivity is offered on the P-3000 and P-5000 and performing file transfers from memory card to disk is now up to 250% faster than previous models.

The P-3000 and P-5000 are the perfect support tool for professional and advanced amateur photographers using cameras with large file formats, as advanced RAW file support allows the Epson P-3000 and P-5000 to display a variety of RAW file formats from leading DSLR manufacturers. This allows photographers to immediately check the focus, exposure, colour, and composition of photos on screen.

The P-3000 and P-5000 are capable of displaying JPEG images of up to 30 million pixels allowing photographers to preview images from ultra-high resolution digital cameras.

The powerful CPU and unique display algorithm of the P-3000 and P-5000 allow full frame images and thumbnails to be viewed significantly faster when displaying an 18 million pixel JPEG image in full frame than its previous models.

The ability to display up to 64 thumbnail images per screen enables photographers to find specific images easily from amongst the hundreds that may be stored. Close up viewing and focus checking is simple with a one touch zoom key on both the Epson P-3000 and P-5000.

The P-3000 and P-5000 support a range of file formats including for images: JPEG, Tiff, Adobe, DNG and multi-vendor RAW; audio: MP3, AAC and WMA; and video playback: MPEG ˝ and 4, Motion JPG, DivX and WMV.
