ZBE Inc. has released a new printer: the Chromira 5x SE ProLab.
"This is a printer that the photo industry has been demanding from us for a long time, especially in the international markets," said Mark Hudson, director of International sales and distribution, ZBE. "We think that a lot of labs will find that the SE Lab will be a great fit for them, especially in countries whose productivity and workflow function differently than in the US. It has the same flawless quality of all the Chromira printers, is highly productive, energy efficient, and competitively priced. It doesn?t come with the ProLab?s cutter/sorter system, but it?s totally upgradeable, so labs can have the fully automated XY cutting and sorting of the Chromira 5x ProLab as a cost effective retro-fit package at any time."
The Chromira SE Lab features a fully-integrated, professional 30-inch digital printer/processor lab system that will produce package orders of small prints, larger prints, and murals with perfectly color-matched, high-quality results. It will reduce energy and operational requirements, as well as provide labs with a competitive advantage. Many labs have requested the ProLab without the cutter/sorter system and the SE Lab is ZBE?s answer to that. The SE Lab is fully upgradeable to the ProLab at any time.
The first SE Lab will be shipping September 3, 2009 to Priya Photo Lab in Cochin, India for installation by Kemlogic, ZBE's distributor in the country. "We are very pleased that ZBE has provided us with a machine that has many of the same benefits of the original ProLab, but without the cutter/sorter system. Our needs are different in India and we expect the ProLab SE to be very competitive," said John Joseph, head of Kemlogic.
