Fujifilm will offer a new inkjet-based retail minilab to retailers this month and will ship its first SD flash-memory cards.
The DL410 replaces the DL400, announced at PMA this year, and will carry a list price of $40,000. It will share most of the features of the previous model, but will add a sorter option for managing prints up to 8 inches by 12 inches, increased back-printing capability to two lines of text, and support for a 4-inch paper roll for printing 4- by 8-inch photo greeting cards.
It will also come with an optional stand for stowing accessories, media, and consumables. The stand can also be used to stack a second DL410 on top of the first, doubling the print capacity while preserving the footprint.
The dry lab uses inkjet technology developed by Noritsu and uses Fujifilm's Image Intelligence software technology, workflow-management software and kiosk-interface software. According to Fujifilm, the management software will be updated to support putting two DL410 printers together on a single controller to double capacity.
Fujifilm will offer SD and MicroSD cards in 1GB and 2GB capacities. Class 6 SDHC cards will be sold in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB capacities while MicroSDHC cards will be available in 4GB and 8GB.
All the cards will be offered in color-coded packaging to distinguish formats.
Retail prices will range from $9.99 to $119, the company said.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
