Photokina 2012: A digital print alternative to silver halide
In May, Digipix, a leading internet-based photo service in Brazil, launched the first digital solution for producing commercial cut photo prints using the HP Indigo Digital Press technology. Digipix’s Ecopix offering produces high-quality prints with a fast response time.
“Our goal is to migrate production of our entire cut print business to digital, and provide our customers this high-quality product with the added benefit of an environmentally friendly production process,” said Marco Perlman, founder and chief executive officer, Digipix.

The new HP Indigo photo prints solution brings HP’s high-quality liquid electrophotographic printing technology to the professional portrait and 4 x 6-inch (10 x 15-centimeter) consumer prints markets with the same quality as silver-halide.
For high-volume production, the HP Indigo photo prints solution is available with the HP Indigo WS6000p Digital Press, which is already used by leading photofinishers to produce high-quality prints. The new solution includes an optional in-line GMP LAMIMASTER 34 and in-line cutting and stacking solutions from Tecnau and Hunkeler.
For low- to mid-volume printing, the solution is also available with HP’s sheet-fed digital presses, including the new HP Indigo 5600 and 7600 Digital Presses. It can be configured with an optional GMP PROTOPIC PLUS-540 laminator for professional portrait quality with luster effect or glossy finish for consumer prints and a cutting and stacking solution from Rollem.
The HP Indigo photo prints solutions support a range of HP Indigo-certified photo media, including photo paper from leading vendors, including Mohawk, Mitsubishi and Felix Schoeller.
