ColdFusion is a powerful platform-independent server-side technology used to create powerful database-driven applications. Built into ColdFusion is an application server which uses the ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML).

Lyson Inks for Epson R2400

Release of the new ink set for the R2400 from Lyson should be the first week in Dec. After a much extended wait I can say the results from this ink set are amazing, the Dmax on the black ink is first class, and in my opinion is fair better than that of Epson, the colours also seem to have a greater colour gamut.

Profiling as always been an issue for 3rd party inks, and the new inks from Lyson are no exception to this, however without a profile the results are not that far off, I dare say a large number of Ameture photographers will manage quite well without a custom profile. We will just have to wait and see.

Once the inks are released they will appear on first.
