The company also said that its printers had been recognized for their second successive Red Dot: Best of Best Award.

Created in 1955 in Germany, the Red Dot Design Award is organized by the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen design center and is recognized around the world as one of the most prestigious awards in the design field. A jury of experts evaluates products announced during the past two years and selects the best designs based on nine criteria, including degree of innovation, functionality, ergonomics, ecological compatibility, and durability. This year's winners were selected from entries from around the world.

Details of the award winning Epson products:

Surecolor SC-P7500 and Surecolor SC-P9500

Flagship models of the Surecolor series, these products are regarded highly as the industry standards for reproducing high-quality images in fine art, proofing, and photo laboratories. They provide the functional operability of high-quality professional tools, such as internal lighting to immediately check printed material, and a neutral color that does not interfere when making color adjustments.

VT6L six-axis robot
