Fujifilm’s complete solution for the retail photo market seamlessly integrates into a retailer’s existing Frontier workflow so that orders can be received from a GetPix kiosk ordering station. The Fujifilm photo book solution uses Fujifilm’s proprietary Image Intelligence® technology to ensure a high quality image with fine-line detail and crisp text. The complete solution includes software, consumables, binding and finishing equipment and the Xerox Phaser 7760, a high-quality digital color printer.
“Retailers have a tremendous opportunity with this solution to capitalize on highly profitable, high quality photo applications with a minimal investment,” said David Bates, vice president, Xerox Office Group. “This landmark solution brings together decades of digital imaging and digital printing expertise from Xerox and Fujifilm.”
The Xerox Phaser 7760 works with GetPix Kiosk Terminal Software 2.5 for use with the GetPixTM V5 and F6 Kiosk Terminals. The Fujifilm photo specialty print solution can also use the DigiLabs suite of applications making it easy for consumers to make photo books, cards and calendars.
