Epson's history spans more than 100 years, with a heritage that began in watch making and led to the invention of the world's first quartz watch along with many other technology "firsts." This long tradition of creating products that are smaller and more precise continues today, with the development of some of the world's most advanced micromechatronics capabilities for ultra fine, high precision processing. It is the company's vision to drive Digital Image Innovation by providing cutting-edge imaging solutions, focused on the fields of imaging on paper, imaging on screen, and imaging on glass. Epson is a global technology company at the forefront of technological revolutions in imaging, robotics, precision machinery and electronics. Epson offers an extensive array of award-winning image capture and image output products for the consumer, photographic, business and graphic arts markets. The company is also a leading supplier of value-added point-of-sale (POS) printers and transaction terminals for the retail market. Supporting this vision will be continued innovation in core devices that provide value-added solutions for linking imaging products.
