Fujifilm has been promoting print service at retail shops for long years. This service is realized by digital minilab “Frontier” series, and Fujifilm has added inkjet digital minilab to the lineup since 2008 next to silver halide digital minilab.

“Frontier DE100” is compact (0.21m2 footprint), lightweight (Approx. 26.5kg), and high performance printer which offers high quality images at high speed, allowing to use various print sizes and paper surfaces. With Frontier DE100, combinations of multiple printers make it possible to establish printing systems meeting retailers' needs.

1. Combinations of printing systems meeting retailers' budgets or required printing services

Frontier DE100's compact design also corresponds to the self print system that requires miniaturization of printers for limited shop spaces, the minilab system that requires high speed processing for large amount of printings in one day, or the event photo system that requires mobility (light-weight) for traveling to event sites.

Frontier DE100 has realized a processing capability of 1,320 sheets/hour (standard mode) when connecting 4 of them, exceeding the number of prints that inkjet minilab produces.

2. Sharp, high quality printing with less graininess

Frontier DE100 combines newly developed high-viscosity four ink system “ViViDiA D-Photo” which uses dye with high ozone and light resistant and a printing head with the high resolution 1,200 x 1,200 dpi in order to correctly eject extremely small ink droplets of 1 pl. Moreover, this new system employs a combination of exclusive inkjet paper and Fujifilm's unique image processing technology “Image Intelligence™” to realize high quality image surpassing conventional compact inkjet printers or compact sublimation type printers even though with four inks.

It also supports the two types of color reproduction, which are “Natural color reproduction” and “Vivid color reproduction” mode, based on Fujifilm's long experience in photo industry. Natural color reproduction mode supports the same color as we see on our eyes. Vivid color reproduction mode is suitable to emphasize color tones with higher saturation.

3. Various print sizes and paper surfaces to enable various kinds of printing

Frontier DE100 adopts print sizes from the smallest 89 mm x 50 mm to the largest 210 mm x 1,000 mm, which enables to propose various kinds of printings; “Square” printing, recently being very popular among young influenced by the smart phone application such as Instagram, “Wallet size” printing, popular in Western countries, or “Banner” prints which are for room decorations such as birthday occasion. The three paper surfaces, glossy, luster and silk will expand pleasure of printings.

Fujifilm will continue to offer convenient and high value printing services with optimized combination of various types of printers that meet the changing market needs thereby develop the culture of photography.
