On September 2, 2014, Seiko Epson announced a series of new inkjet printer models, for the year end holiday season. The SCPX5VII is a new model in the Pro Series, targeting professional photographers and hobbyists. This replaces the PX-5V that was launched in February 2011. The new A3 plus model utlizes the newly-developed Epson UltraChrome K3 INK.
