Fujifilm, a global leader in imaging technology, released figures today showing strong sales of the corporation's Frontier Dry Minilabs in the UK in 2008.
Dry Minilabs are a new development in commercial photo printing. They are functionally similar to FujiFilm’s traditional Frontier minilab equipment, but don’t use wet chemistry.
FujiFilm’s introductory machine in this class, the Frontier Dry Minilab model DL400, sold well to large multiple buyers, independent labs, Government departments and professional studio businesses. From its launch at the beginning of 2008 till the end of that year it shipped more than 20% above expectation.
For 2009 Fujifilm have updated the Frontier Dry Minilab to the model DL410, an incremental development from its successful predecessor, and have revised sales projections upward.
Paul Austin, Marketing Executive of Fujifilm Photofinishing in the UK, attributed the success of the Frontier Dry Minilabs to affordability, low running costs, minimal space requirements and freedom from wet chemistry. “In quality and versatility, particularly in combination with Fujifilm SmartPix kiosks and the Fujifilm Digital Imaging Service branding, Frontier Dry Labs are winning out against other brands and technologies,
” he said.
