Noritsu America Corporation, a leading manufacturer of digital imaging equipment, will debut the new D701, a retail inkjet photo printer at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas January 7-10. Noritsu will be exhibiting in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth number 31431.
The D701 is the latest addition to an extensive line of digital photo imaging equipment that represents Noritsu's commitment to innovation and dedication to providing retail partners with the most profitable photo imaging equipment in the industry. According to research from InfoTrends Inc, consumers are printing photos at retail locations at a rapidly increasing rate. They are forecasting that almost 60% of all digital photo prints will be made at retail locations by 2011. This is an exciting opportunity for retailers who can meet this growing consumer demand with in-store photo printing capabilities.
The Noritsu D701 is a high quality inkjet printer capable of producing a wide variety of print sizes to maximize revenue potential. Retailers can now provide their customers with a full assortment of photo and photo-related products in stores. In addition to standard 4"x6" prints, the D701 can produce new photo revenue opportunities through items such as calendars, photo cards, locker prints and posters up to 10" x 36". The D701 utilizes a revolutionary new inkjet technology that radically improves the dye ink process to provide sharp detail and brilliant colors, while producing long-lasting prints that resist deterioration from ozone and light. Ideal for photofinishing and retail environments, the D701 is an extremely compact printing system, taking up only 4.6 square feet of space. Two D701 printers can be stacked together to increase printing capacity without increasing footprint. Other features include an order sorter that organizes print orders for improved productivity and the ability to switch between sheet and roll-fed paper, which enables the printer to handle a variety of print jobs for greater revenue opportunities.
The D701 works well as the printing element of a complete photo solution, providing retailers with an easy-to-deploy in-store print solution that has connectivity to third party kiosks from companies such as Lucidiom, Whitech and LifePics.
"The D701 is the perfect combination of quality and versatility" commented Mr. Akihiko Kuwabara, President of Noritsu America Corporation. "Its ability to print up to 10"x36" panoramic prints creates exciting new revenue potential for retailers. The D701 represents our fifth generation of inkjet technology and is engineered to deliver the same high quality and steadfast reliability that all of our printers are known for worldwide."
