Colorspan has a wide format with some of it (12 ? heads|). CccMmmYyyKkk but I'm not sure about it. Mimaki JV4 has 12 Epson 10000 heads but is using all 12 only in CcMmYK 2x or CMYKOG 2x. And it can use pigment/dye/sublimation/textile ink next to one another but not at the same time so 6 heads only then with a choice of CMYKOG or CcMmYK. But that machine may get other drivers that will allow more. Mimaki JV2 has 7 Epson 3000 heads CMYKOG, CcMmYK or in the usual textile mode CMYKOB + Grey. Roland has an 8 headed printer, CcMmYKOG at the same time is one configuration. RIP only for all those printers. I've seen the rumour about the 7 ink Epson somewhere else with more data added. The replacement for the 7000/7500 will be the 8500. 3/5 picolitre. 7 ink. new wider gamut ink. 1 or 2 greys. I guess the last is added by someone who has seen my message :-) If it becomes a 7 ink printer it is more likely that it will be CcMmYKk. That will take away most of the metamerism in the Epson enhanced pigment ink, the 4 picolitre smallest droplet will allow a long black/grey generation so there is no composite grey left. The wider gamut has to be in the CMY pigment itself, the extra grey doesn't help in that case. 4 picolitre as a compromise between speed and detail, it suits a printer between the 5000 (3 picolitre) and the 10000 (5 picolitre). B&W that mixes some of the light grey in the black to get rid of the white lines in Black only printing would be nice but with a long black/grey generation and a grey RGB file you already will get the best B&W possible + the extra colours to make sepia etc as well.
