DNP today introduced its new flagship DS620A dye-sublimation photo printer for the event photography and photo retail markets. As the latest addition to the company’s DS Series printers, the DS620A is billed as the world’s most compact professional-grade photo printer, capable of outputting up to 400 prints per hour. At 10.8-inches wide by 14.4-inches deep by 6.7-inches high, the DS620A is 14 percent lighter than its predecessor. The printer’s design also features improved aesthetics with a new white color scheme and rounded corners. The DS620A is capable of producing 2”x6”(2-up) photo strips, 2”x6”(4-up) photo strips, 3.5"x5”(2x), 4”x6”, 4”x6”(2x), 5”x7”, and 6”x8” prints as well as new 5”x5” and 6”x6” square prints in a newly improved gloss or matte finish. A new standby mode lowers costs and increases profitability by making the most efficient use of energy (<0.5W). The printer also provides advanced status information from the driver, enabling users at any time to check remaining media, media format, printer status, printer life counter, color control data, firmware version and serial number.

DNP Introduces New Flagship DS620A Dye-Sublimation Photo Printer

CONCORD, North Carolina – DNP Imagingcomm America Corporation (DNP IAM) today introduced its new flagship DS620A dye-sublimation photo printer for the event photography and photo retail markets. As the latest addition to DNP’s award-winning line of DS Series printers, the DS620A is the world’s most compact professional-grade photo printer and can produce up to 400 prints per hour. Built with an improved thermal print head, the DS620A will also come backed by a three-year Advanced Exchange Warranty from DNP IAM at time of purchase.

“With its wide range of print size options, quick output, and innovative print technology, the DS620A is a revenue-generating asset for pro photographers printing on site as well as retail store operators with in-store photo printing kiosks,” said Katsuyuki Oshima, President of DNP Imagingcomm America Corporation. “The DS620A represents our continued commitment to providing the photography and retail markets with the most reliable and cost-effective printing solutions available as well as our dedication to preserving the memories of their customers.”

At only 10.8-inches wide by 14.4-inches deep by 6.7-inches high, the DS620A is 14 percent lighter than its predecessor. The small footprint allows for easy transportation and stacking with additional printers for high output functionality making it the ideal companion of photographers searching for mobility, speed and volume. The printer’s design also features improved aesthetics with a new white color scheme and rounded corners.

The DS620A is capable of producing 2”x6”(2-up) photo strips, 2”x6”(4-up) photo strips, 3.5"x5”(2x), 4”x6”, 4”x6”(2x), 5”x7”, and 6”x8” prints as well as new 5”x5” and 6”x6” square prints in a newly improved gloss or matte finish. Not only is the printer versatile, but it also boasts a 14 percent increase in image throughput per hour for some of the fastest print speeds available—standard 4”x6” images are produced in less than nine seconds, while 5”x7”s are printed in about 15 seconds. The printed media will also feature a new DNP watermark on the backside of each photo.

Environmentally friendly, both energy consumption and media waste have been optimized in the DS620A. A new standby mode lowers costs and increases profitability by making the most efficient use of energy (<0.5W). The printer also provides advanced status information from the driver, enabling users at any time to check remaining media, media format, printer status, printer life counter, color control data, firmware version and serial number.

The DS620A is compatible with DNP’s vast range of software products, including Mobile Party Print for event photography applications, the Tomo™ v6.1 kiosk software, the new NexLab™6 order management software and the new print utility software Hot Folder Print Utility™ for enhanced print workflows in studio and event.
