    I think it was metalic ink. Ability to make any color metalic.

    I heard it was improved white ink management and the ability to use metallic inks!

    The machine is like a new version of XC540, which is higher level machine. Cost much more than VP540.

    I was told it will print engineer grade reflective backgrounds along with puff ink that will simulate the look and feel of embroidered stiching for direct use on textiles.

    Also, the next generation will have a bedazzler option for decorating garments directed at the tourist industry.

    This is also true but it needs to be rarified air molecules!

    It will have pumps to circulate the metallic / white inks...no need to shake the cartridges any longer.

  15. I was at the launch of the printer at Sign & Digital Ireland, Wednesday 23rd Sept. Basically looks like a ProIII but with a metallic pink cover instead of blue.

    The machine does a good job at producing metallic hues to images. The white printing is improved. I was told that the metallic ink was about 3 to 4 times the price of the normal OEM ink, but it uses very little ink by comparison to the normal CMYK.

    All in all, it may be a good option if one is in the market for a new Pro III.
