It's All Digital At PMA 2004
While costs have not yet been determined, David said that on the 8200 model, an A1 poster on premium super gloss surface costs about $3.96 for ink, media and print head. He indicated that print shops generally get about $59-$79 for such a print. My guess is a minilab might settle for less.
One feature David explained was the ease of use of the 6200. He said there was a single print head that was easily changed by the operator and the six color ink tanks were also simple to replace. The system can connect via USB 2.0 or Ethernet to any computer.
