HiTi 510k event printer
Intro 2020 have announced the release of two new dye sublimination event printers from HiTi, the 510s and 510k. The 510s weighs just 13kg and has a 3.5in display for standalone operation and user settings. The 510k weighs 18kg and has a 10in Touch Screen Display. 6x4in prints take an impressive 12 seconds, 5x7in take 18 seconds and 6x9in takes 21 seconds.
Reaching new levels of build quality, speed and user refinements, the HiTi 510s and 510k dye sublimation event printers offer huge profitability and convenience to the event printing market. The 510s is the smallest, lightest model weighing in at just 13kg and incorporates a 3.5in high resolution display for standalone operation and user settings. This hugely versatile unit can also be operated via a computer allowing you to work directly from your event database, especially where multiple photographers are working.
The 510k has a larger 10in Touch Screen display giving greater flexibility and with its tough lightweight chassis it still weighs in at just 18kg. The 510k can either be operated through your computer, or standalone, making it possible to run events without the need for a computer. It could also be operated directly by your customers using its large touch screen display to make their own selections, crops and edits with the powerful back-end software keeping them informed of print pricing and their total cost based on your set up parameters.
Photographers or venues looking for additional sources of revenue could even set the 510k up at weddings and events as a kiosk for guests to make instant prints from their own cameras & Bluetooth mobile phones to share with their friends and family.
Print quality is class leading with HiTi 10 bit dye sublimation technology ensuring great colour rendition and detail with prints emerging dry and ready to handle. Print speeds are impressive at just 12 seconds for a 6x4 inch print, 18 seconds for a 5x7, 19 seconds for a 6x8 and 21 seconds for a 6x9in print.
Print media can easily be changed with a slide in design for both the paper cassette and ribbon cartridge giving photographers the versatility to swap between print sizes, even part way through a roll of paper or ribbon, and with the capability to produce up to 300 prints per hour at functions, customers can be served quickly and efficiently.
The Hi-Ti 510k and 510s printers offer photographers great convenience and portability together with a great margin and turnover opportunity, with capital investment in some cases being returned in the first event or even the first pack of paper.
