Valhalla, N.Y. — Fujifilm will offer a new Frontier digital minilab for in-store printing applications, the company said today.
The Frontier 710 can produce up to 810 4R-sized prints per hour and supports print sizes up to 24 inches long. It uses the company’s Image Intelligence automatic image-correction technology and a “one touch” chemistry-replenishing system.
Fujifilm will also offer several optional add-ons for the system, including a 36-inch paper advance (for print sizes up to 8 inches by 36-inches), the ability to add up to three built-in paper magazines and an automated quality control strip processing.
The system also features imaging controller technology to prioritize print orders. It is based on the company’s PIC software, which Fujifilm says improves efficiency and connectivity between the minilab and the company’s GetPix kiosks and Internet print-ordering solutions.
The Frontier 710 supports the SP500 35mm film scanner and is also able to interface with to the SP3000 film scanner for APS and medium-format films.
The lab carries a list price of $93,400 which includes the SP500 scanner and PIC software but does not include a film processor or kiosk terminals.
Fujifilm and Xerox recently announced a partnership to offer retailers the capability of producing photo merchandise (such as books and calendars) in-store. That solution, alongside the new Frontier, will be demonstrated at PMA next week.
