A new “True Rich Color” preset takes full advantage of the VG and SG's great colour reproduction capability and the wide colour gamut provided by new TR2 ink2.

4. TR2 significantly reduces ink consumption
Newly developed ink delivery technology significantly reduces the amount of ink used during maintenance.
