730PS Hiti photoprinterWinners at DIMA 2005

The winners of the 2005 DIMA Digital Printer Shoot-Out were announced today at the PMA 2005 Convention and Trade Show in Orlando, Florida.

Winners, displayed during PMA 2005, were chosen from 122 prints entered by 37 companies.

Entries in the DIMA Digital Printer Shoot-Out were produced from files created by colour workflow experts Chromaticity, Grand Rapids, Mich.

Participants were asked to provide specification information pertaining to the equipment used (printer, RIP); the consumables used (output media, ink/toner/dye); and the production timing. A panel of expert judges voted on the entries, based on the overall quality of the digital print and the accuracy of colour as compared to the "target" print. The panel of judges included some of the most well-respected names in the industry, including Roy Bohnen, Richard Lerner, Eric Harsh, Brian Mundy, and Steve Olock.

Hi-Touch Imaging Technologies (HiTi) is proud to announce that it has won the DIMA 2005 Digital Printer Shoot-Out, for both the 4x6 inch and 5x7 inch digital printer categories, at the 2005 Photo Marketing Association (PMA) trade show held in Orlando, USA from 20–23 February 2005. This is the third year HiTi has won the prestigious DIMA awards in the Company’s 4-year history. In 2002, HiTi won the DIMA Innovative Digital Product Award, and the HiTi Photo Printer 640PS took the honour as the winner of the Digital Printer Shoot-Out Award with its un-matched printing quality in 2004.

This year, the HiTi Photo Printers 641PS and 730PS each took the first place in the 4x6 inch or less and the 5x7 inch categories respectively, in the DIMA 2005 Digital Printer Shoot-Out; winning out over a list of very respectable competitors (see tables below). PMA is one of the world’s most important events for the global photographic industry dating back more than 80-years since 1924. Usually more than 30,000 entries take part in this great meeting every year including imaging industry giants Sony, Canon, Fuji Film and Kodak.

HiTi Photo Printer 641PS has won numerous awards around the world since its launch in Autumn 2004 with its outstanding quality, flexibility and the exceptional performance, which has impressed both the media and users alike.

The aim of the HiTi Photo Printer 641PS is to utilise multiple image transfer interfaces to provide users with means to quickly and easily, share and print photographs. For this reason, the 641PS not only supports 7 different memory cards, but also provides a USB port with LinkPrint TM technology. The LinkPrintTM technology enables the 641PS to easily transfer digital images from standard USB devices (e.g. USB CD drives, USB removable hard disks, digital cameras, USB card readers, etc.) to the photo printer for easy image sharing and printing.

For customers who need larger format photo printing, HiTi integrates its innovation and marketing capabilities to launch the next generation HiTi Photo Printer; 730PS. The 730PS expands the possible printing applications with its ability to print three different paper formats: 4x6, 5x7 and 6x8 inch, and 4 sticker formats including CD, in around 40 to 75 seconds through the printer. For the digital imaging market, the HiTi 730PS provides a cost effective solution to the varying demands of professional photographers and enthusiast users with its flexibility and high quality results.

This is not the first time that Hi-Ti Printers have won awards from DIMA, the 630PS won an award in 2002, and the 640PS won one in 2004.
