UMAX UK in conjunction with Hi-Touch Imaging Technologies announce the introduction of a new range of Digital Photo Printers.

The HiTi range currently consists of two printers, the 630PL and the 630PS.

Aimed at Digital camera owners, amateur and professional photographers, and High Street photographic shops offering print-on-demand services.

The printers are compact with a small footprint, taking up very little desk space. 

D2T2 Technology
Both printers use Dye Diffusion Thermal Transfer technology (D2T2) to provide high quality, 4'x 6', continuous toned prints with a gloss finish, and the 'feel' of a real photograph. D2T2 offers several advantages over inkjet prints, including:

  • The continuous toned print is visually more pleasing than the visible dots often seen on inkjet prints.
  • The printing process includes an automatic lamination layer which protects the print from water and other liquids and
  • extends the longevity of the print providing a longer archival properties.
  • the lamination layer also provides the high gloss feel.

Print Media
D2T2 uses a print ribbon impregnated with Cyan, Magenta and Yellow dyes, plus the lamination layer. Consumable packs contain 50 sheets of paper plus a print ribbon, providing 4'x 6' borderless prints with a tear-off strip at each end for loading/handling. Also available are packs of Self-adhesive stickers of various sizes.
 
The HiTi630PL uses a USB connection to a Windows computer, (a Macintosh driver is being developed).

The HiTi630PS also offers a USB connection, but can be used as a stand-alone printing device. Through its built in Compact Flash Card and Smart Media card readers, the printer can print any image contained on the cards. The 630PS incorporates a small wired handset featuring a colour LCD screen and several control buttons. The screen displays the images contained on the memory cards and provides a variety of options relating print set-up.
 
Software
Photo Dsire is the simple to use software and printer driver for setting up images ready for printing. It includes standard manipulation features such as contrast and brightness, rotation options and resizing along with printer related settings for print quantities.
The bundle includes MGI PhotoSuite for advanced image manipulation.
 


Availability The HiTi Printers are available immediately with a Suggested Retail price of 199 for the 630PL and 249 for the 630PS. Standard media packs containing 50 sheets and new 50 image ribbons should retail at 19.99. The distributors are Photomart on 020 8558 1116. Product information can be obtained from UMAX Sales on 0870 906 4400 or visiting the www.umax.co.uk web site.
