Concord, NC—DNP Imagingcomm America Corporation (DNP) released DS620A firmware v1.41, DS620A driver v18.104.22.168, and Hot Folder Print Utility v2.2. The new software enables print functionality for panoramas and a new luster finish mode on DNP’s flagship DS620A dye-sublimation printer.
The DS620A can now produce 6×14-inch and 6×20-inch panoramas—printed from DNP’s 6×8-inch media. To enable panoramic printing, DNP’s DS620A printer must be updated to the latest version of the DS620A firmware (v1.41). The user must also be printing through DNP’s new Hot Folder Print (HFP) Utility v2.2.
“Panoramic prints are costly and time consuming to create with an inkjet printer,” said Katsuyuki Oshima, president of DNP IAM. “With the introduction of panoramic print functionality to our DS620A dye-sub printer, photographers and photo booth operators can now offer high-quality panoramic photo prints quickly and at a rate that is both affordable to their customer and profitable for their business.”
In addition to creating panoramas, the HFP Utility v2.2 now offers the option to set a time-out amount for multi-cut print jobs. It features expanded print finish support with a new luster finish and the ability to reposition the app window. HFP can also print images in a specific order and apply color corrections. It also features the capability to support multiple DNP printers.
DNP’s new DS620A driver v22.214.171.124 provides improved usability and a new luster finish mode in addition to the existing glossy and matte finishes. The luster finish mode allows for the right amount of depth and pattern to the finish to create professional-grade photo prints. The driver boasts improved intelligence, recognizing media and print size as well as optimize media usage when printing.
