"Epson has been a longstanding technology and information resource for our community of artists and photographers. With an expanded presence this year, Epson accounts for nearly all of the printing and projection technologies utilized in the Studio," said Reid Baker, chair, Studio at SIGGRAPH 2015. "Whether using Wacom® tablets to create new printable concepts, or editing and printing original photography and artwork, attendees can interact with a range of printing and projection applications, from t-shirts to canvas to large-format designs."

Attendees visiting the Studio will have access to a range of printing and projection technologies, techniques and applications with help from experienced hands:

As part of the SIGGRAPH Studio, Eddie Murphy, part of Epson Professional Imaging Product Management, will conduct an in-depth interactive course – Digital T-Shirt Design and Printing – on Sunday, Aug. 9, from 2-3:30 p.m. in South Hall G. Class participants will learn best practices for designing graphics for digital DTG printers. Finished designs will be printed on Epson SureColor F2000 DTG printers in the Studio and entered into Epson's T-Shirt Design Contest taking place at the show. In addition, Epson PowerLite Pro Z-Series 3LCD projectors will be utilized in break-out sessions to drive collaboration during demos and classes.

"We thrive on educating the market, not only on the latest design trends, but on best practices and the latest technology available to create the highest quality printed output – photography, artwork and images, and even t-shirts – regardless of level of expertise," said Murphy, "The SIGGRAPH Studio is an ideal venue for attendees from a range of creative disciplines to explore and learn about Epson print technologies and see their art come to life in a real, tangible way and explore their creativity with like-minded individuals."

Epson will also demonstrate a range of innovative graphic design applications at SIGGRAPH in booth #929, including design drawings, story boards, characters posters, and more. Professional sketch artists will document their creative design process using an Epson BrightLink® Pro interactive projector, leveraging an Epson SureColor T-Series large-format color printer to output the final designs. Epson will also be conducting demos and technical workshops for the Moverio® BT-200 augmented reality smart glasses throughout the show at booth #937, including tutorials presented by Sean McCracken, the premier smart glasses app developer and CEO of Imaginary Computer.
