The Independent Photo Supplies (IPS) Digital Printer Shootout was an outstanding success, as for possibly the first time ever at an Australian trade show, IPS had virtually every dry lab brand set up on one stand, all networked to three Dakis online & eCommerce kiosks, allowing the lab owner to simultaneously output prints to:
· Epson Surelab D-3000 12in
· Epson Surelab D-700 8in/ A-4
· Kodak 6850 6in Dye Sub
· Fuji Xerox Phaser 7800 SRA-3
· Kodak 4600 Duplex 8in Dye Sub
· Noritsu QSS Green Duplex 10in
In fact, the IPS software (developed in-house by ‘Professor’ David Slade) can connect to any printer now available in the market (wet or dry)! Our customers were able to bring their own test files and test print on Epson, Noritsu, Kodak and Fuji Xerox ‘dry lab’ technology all on the one stand, comparing them to their current AgX print output.
The attendance, appreciation and positive feedback exceeded our expectations. Stand-out attendances included the PSPA (Professional School Photographers Association), who took advantage of the opportunity and attended a special before-show closed session. Camera House members also took the opportunity to re-evaluate their printing needs, with the ability to test print across the different printer options.
The ability to print to any (or all) Epson, Noritsu, Kodak and Fuji Xerox printers was made possible (and all the more easier) through a Dakis Kiosk. Patrice Hugron from Dakis Canada, quickly configured a Touchscreen PC Kiosk running the latest version of the Dakis Kiosk software (V3) to send images to any or all printers across our network, with just the touch of a touch-screen button
Amazing things happen when you work with amazing supply partners: many thanks to our participating partners Epson, Noritsu, Fuji Xerox, Kodak Alaris, and Dakis Online and eCommerce Kiosk Software solutions.
