Open to all PRINTING United Alliance supplier members, the Pinnacle Product Award competition evaluates products that are, or will be, available for sale in 2022. A highly qualified panel of judges from across the printing industry evaluated the annual contest’s 160+ entries in more than 58 categories spanning analog, digital, output and non-output technologies. Output devices are judged based on reports generated by measuring color charts and then comparing to industry specifications.
“This is the only competition I know of that reports on the percentage of Adobe RGB a printer can hit,” said Dawn Nye, program manager, Pinnacle Awards, PRINTING United Alliance. “Some of the categories were decided by tenths of a point so fierce was the competition this year. The Pinnacle Product Award competition represents the best of the best among commercial hardware. Congratulations to Epson on its three wins.”
