Epson launches new Minilab for photographers, photo print providers
and photo merchandise manufacturers
SureLab D1060 offers fast, high-quality photo printing with flexible production
and a reduced total cost of ownership
SYDNEY, 15 July 2021 – As demand for small-format photos continues to grow, businesses are looking for a cost-effective way to deliver quality prints quickly and cost effectively. To meet that need, Epson has launched the SureLab® D1060. This new DryLab printer has been built to address a range of customers from wedding and event photography, to retail in-store ad-hoc printing, to back-office print houses.
It offers a more compact footprint with reduced noise, lower heat output, as well as a range of new features to suit retail and in-house photo production. It also has a faster print speed and a super-fast one-off print mode for event applications.
A new ink system is combined with more flexible networking and an extended print life for those involved with on-demand and back-office print production. Complementing all of this is a new duplex unit that enables automatic
double-sided borderless printing for photobook and photo merchandise production
“High-quality, small-format photo printing is more popular than ever. Whether you have a high-end digital camera or the latest smartphone with megapixel imaging capability, there is nothing visceral quite like a tangible printed photo of a treasured moment. People want to put photos in their family albums, on the desk and up on the wall. Moments in time are fleeting and special. There is nothing like having a memento there in front of you as a reminder of what’s truly important,” said Gordon Kerr, Business Marketing Manager, Large Format, Epson Australia, “Epson has always produced great photo printers. The SureLab D1060 is a leap forward in terms of flexibility, productivity and durability. Never before has it been easier or more cost-effective to produce quality photo prints.”
The new SureLab D1060 delivers print speeds of up to 460 6”x4” photos per hour.1 It is up to 10 percent faster than the previous generation, and the new 15 second one-off print mode is set to be a boon for photo studios and event work.2
Leveraging an enhanced 6-channel MicroPiezo® printhead and vivid UltraChrome® D6r-S dye-based ink technology, the printer can accurately reproduce subtle tones in portrait photos with smooth transitions and crisp, sharp details. When coupled with compatible Epson genuine photo media, prints are water, smudge and fade resistant.3
For improved productivity, the SureLab D1060 features a high-capacity ink system that uses 250ml bags that are cost-effective to purchase, compact to store, and crushable for reduced waste.
For single-sided printing, the machine uses large 65m roll-based media that is available in widths from 3.5”-210mm (A4) in a range of media weights and finishes.
The optional duplex tray uses double-sided sheet media, that is available in sizes from A5, up to 210x210mm. Operation is made simple and flexible care of an integrated control panel and bundled Epson OrderController Lite software.4 Flexible USB, Ethernet and Wi-Fi interfacing makes connectivity easier while the reduced footprint and heat output makes the machine perfect for kiosk-based operations.5
One of the key design features of the SL-D1060 is its reduced Total Cost of Ownership. Not only has it been designed to offer worry-free operation with minimum maintenance, but it features double the print life of its predecessor.1 It comes with a comprehensive ‘heads-and-all’ on-site warranty that can be extended with CoverPlus for up to five years.
In Australia the printer will be offered in two configurations: base unit only, or base unit plus duplex. The duplex unit will also be available as an option for those who wish to purchase it later.
Additional features include:
Pricing and Availability
The SureLab D1060 is expected to be available from November 2021 in Australia. A base printer with 5 year CoverPlus is expected to cost $6,995 (RRP
ex GST), while the version with the duplex unit is expected to cost $7,995 (RRP ex GST). The duplex unit will also be available separately for $995 ex GST.

2 Product specifications are subject to change without notice. Customers are recommended to view the relevant Epson product page for latest details. Total throughput time for any print depends on various factors including workstation configuration, file size, print resolution, ink coverage and networking. Actual print speeds will vary.
3 Epson does not provide any guarantee or warranty on print durability
4 This printer ships with the ‘Lite’ version of Order Controller. The full version can be ordered separately at additional expense.
5 This printer is designed for use with nominated Epson genuine ink and media consumables only. Use of alternatives is likely to result in print quality and reliability issues that invalidate warranty and CoverPlus.
Epson’s new SureLab D1060
well, the first thing that would have to be fixed is the clip for the pop filter it needs to be removable. the sound quality is very good but it needs light to tell if it’s on or not.
the cable needs to be at least 10 ft and needs to be removable because if the cable breaks the mic is done for.
well first off the microphone stand works great with my AT2020 XLR. plus it is way better than my old one it would bang if you tried to move it in front of you. but this one much more sturdy than old with the mini clamp but with this one, the octagon holder works so much better and it has a headphone holder and a cable holder plus it does not come with an xlr cable

D-Link A/NZ launches Nuclias Cloud Managed Network Solution hosted in Australia
Feature-rich cloud-managed Networking Solution designed for MSPs
SYDNEY, 7 May 2020 – D-Link A/NZ has launched Nuclias Cloud, its new cloud-managed networking solution developed specifically for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) which will enable them to help small businesses through to very large enterprises remotely set up, configure, monitor, troubleshoot, and manage their customer’s network infrastructure, including Wi-Fi Access Points and Network Switches, across multiple sites anytime, anywhere.
Nuclias Cloud is available to MSPs on a month-to-month basis with no lock-in contract, unlike most other solutions in this space. In addition, to help MSPs during these challenging COVID-19 times, D-Link A/NZ has suspended all monthly billing for both new and existing Nuclias Cloud MSPs for at least Q2 2020.
Key benefits of Nuclias Cloud for MSPs:-
· Regular revenue stream: Nuclias Cloud is a service platform that allows MSPs to bill their customers in the fashion that they prefer whether upfront, monthly, annually or whichever combination they prefer. MSPs are charged monthly for usage in arrears only, versus competitors’ long-term contracts, freeing up cash flow that can otherwise be put to good use.
· Month-to-month pricing: No lock-in contracts, and easy to manage cash flow forecasts
· Lower overheads: Easy to install, Nuclias Cloud can easily be managed remotely online
· Elevate your offering: Nuclias Cloud proactively enables you to offer a better service
· Reliability and reputation: Nuclias Cloud offers high-performance access points and cloud-managed switches which are managed by a centralized cloud-based control system, deployed on over 50,000 cloud-managed customer networks around the world
· Fewer cost variables and competitively priced: Nuclias Cloud has no long-term costs, no hidden extras, and no additional license fees which make for predictable cost management
· Easy to implement, maintain, and grow: Easy for the customer or the MSP to grow and expand with linear fixed costs.
D-Link ANZ Managing Director, Graeme Reardon said, “MSPs need a powerful and scalable solution with which they can manage their customer’s networks from a single pane of glass, and Nuclias Cloud provides exactly that. With the flexibility of no lock-in contracts, local stock, zero-touch provisioning and an intuitive, scalable dashboard that provides the MSP a view across their entire customer network, all whilst being hosted locally in Australia, Nuclias Cloud provides MSPs with a simple choice – Pay multi-year licensing fees upfront out of their own cash flow to their existing vendors, or investigate a move to a clean-sheet designed cloud solution that has been successfully deployed in some of the largest telcos in the world, giving them the flexibility that MSPs deserve.”
A significant number of MSPs have already chosen to use and resell the Nuclias Cloud Management solution in Australia due to this flexibility, ease of scalability and simple, but compelling, resale benefits.
With Nuclias Cloud’s inherent zero-touch provisioning and scalable architecture, MSPs can easily deploy and streamline networks to support an unlimited number of devices across multiple sites. Once set up, administrators can manage the network from the online portal or dedicated App, using either or both to capture and analyze advanced traffic reports and real-time insights into every connected device.
Additional features include secure role-based administration system, auditable change logs, authentication via captive portal, 802.1x, RADIUS server, automated network monitoring, and Facebook and Google login support for guest Wi-Fi access.
The Nuclias Cloud range of hardware solutions has been extended to include high-performance Gigabit smart-managed switches with optional PoE and fiber connectivity as well as Wi-Fi Access Points featuring MU-MIMO, PoE support, and up to 3×3 concurrent dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. D-Link cameras and routers will also become part of the Nuclias Cloud solution in 2020.
