Kodak 9810 Digital Photo printer launched by Kodak Professional - New high speed, high quality roll-fed digital photo printer boasts a 50% print speed improvement over previous sheet-fed models
The 9810 Digital Photo Printer can produce up to 8x12-inch glossy prints. Weighing in at just 40lbs the 9810 targets both studio and location-based professional photographers who need high quality photo proofs or prints to show or sell immediately.
Announcing the launch, David Kitchin, marketing manager for professional output said: Kodak has refocused its strategy to further emphasise its output solutions and the 9810 launch announcement reflects that strategic move.
"The print demands of todays professional photographers are growing rapidly and we are responding with faster, smaller and more efficient print solutions.
"Following the hugely successful launch of the 1400 unit the new 9810 printer is the vanguard of a new range of printers set for UK launch in coming months..
"The 9810, is simple to operate and maintain and integrates easily into photographers existing workflows.
"The new model, which comes complete with a built-in cutter, delivers the first 8x10 print in 45 seconds and subsequent prints at 39 second intervals.
"Photographers working away from the studio can quickly set up on site to provide customers and event-goers with quality, durable pictures in an instant.
He added: This new roll-fed model comes with an attractive price-per-print from approximately 1.10 (ex VAT) for an 8x10 and 1.24 for an 8x12.
"The 9810 also offers 8x10 borderless prints and a minimal 3/8-inch trim between sheets to further improve productivity and savings.
The Kodak Professional 9810 Digital Photo Printer is supported by WINDOWS XP and 2000 operating systems, offers package print capabilities and supports photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop.
