Altaimage makes early decision to buy first LumeJet S200 digital printer
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Altaimage, London Docklands based production agency, has converted from LumeJet S200 beta site to customer four weeks before the end of the evaluation period.
"It's so Altaimage," said Rob King, Altaimage Managing Director, "We dare to be different. We're early adopters and we love to be ahead of the curve. The LumeJet S200 is a unique new printer and we're looking forward to building a market for its amazing output."
The LumeJet S200 arrived at Altaimage's Canary Wharf premises at the end of July and has been running smoothly since the beginning of August. After a short period of familiarisation, as the photonic technology is a little different from Altaimage's other, more conventional ink or toner printers, and a successful soft launch to selected contacts from its client base; Altaimage is now confident to promote the LumeJet's ultra-high quality prints to a wider audience.
"The print quality is fabulous, quite unlike anything we've ever seen before. Fantastic photographs, eye-popping colours, sharp text and line art, on the same page at the same time." Rob added, "Any agency using iPads for client presentations should get the prints made on it. It's the hard-copy equivalent of a retina screen."
Thomas Furse-Roberts of Boundary Space agrees, as he has become a big fan of Altaimage's new LumeJet S200 printer, "The fabulous print quality, fine lines, gorgeous graphics, edge-to-edge across double-page-spread A3 landscape, takes our pitch books to a new level", said Tom, "and says more about what we do as architects and designers than anything we've ever had before."
"We've made some stunning layflat books for wedding albums, great for once-in-a-lifetime occasions." said Rob, "The LumeJet S200 transforms an average image into a real work of art. A 360 degree panorama from your mobile phone is so clear it's more than good enough to frame and hang on the wall," he added, "Everyone who sees the output wants the prints. We've opened a bureau service for the trade and already have four printers signed up."
Rob is happy to dispel any rumour that silver halide (AgX) is dead. "A number of people said I was mad to be 'going back' to AgX printing, that it was outdated," Rob continued. "It is the popular myths about AgX that are outdated - these days it's clean, easy maintenance and smell-free. And, unlike other high quality print solutions like inkjet, you know your costs from the outset."

The LumeJet S200 is a photonic, digital printer and LumeJet's first commercial offering. The inkless technology features LumeJet's innovative, patented Digital Print Head, and works in a similar way to an inkjet using light, rather than ink to make tiny dots (less than 0.005 mm) on photosensitive media. The RGB colour model achieves outstanding colour fidelity, including hard-to-print Pantone special inks like reflex blue, and flawless black across the entire printable area. With maximum print size of 1000 x 305 mm, output from the LumeJet S200 is ideally suited to A3 landscape layflat books and panoramic images.
