(Friday, May 9, 2003 - 15:33 EDT)

Hi-Touch Imaging Technologies has announced an update to its existing 630PS dye-sublimation printer, in the form of the new 640PS.

The 640PS is 6mm wider than its predecessor, and is both higher resolution and faster. The 630PS was 300 x 300 dots per inch (dpi) - which HiTi says is equivalent to a 4800 dpi inkjet - where the new 640PS is 403 x 403 dpi, apparently equivalent to a 6400 dpi inkjet. Each 4" x 6" print takes 75 seconds approximately, fully 25 seconds faster than the old model.

The HiTi 640PS Photo Printer costs $299.99, whilst the 630PS gets a price-drop to $189.99. Full specifications for the new model follow:

Hi-Touch Imaging Announces New Faster 640PS Photo Printer

Montebello, CA Hi-Touch Imaging Technologies announces the addition of its new and faster 640PS Photo Printer to the HiTi family. The 640PS is the deluxe version of the already popular 630PS model and will feature stand-alone, direct printing of lab-quality photos at an increased 403dpi (equivalent to inkjet 6400dpi). To keep current with digital photography trends, the 640PS will accept six different media types (Compact Flash, Smart-Media, Secure Digital, Memory Stick, Multi-Media Card, and Micro-Drive) directly on the built-in card reader. The new machine's cost per print average continues to be significantly less than the costs of inkjet printing and even more affordable than other dye-sublimation printing solutions. With sleek looks and a sharp hand-held LCD Wizard Window to preview and edit photographs, the 640PS Photo Printer will quickly prove itself to be among the most desired photo printers on the market. The 640PS is capable of printing with matte surface and glossy effects without changing media. Additionally, a unique "watermark" can be adding using HiTi's Magic Coating Technology which also waterproofs the prints and protects them from aging. The printer comes with HiTi's PhotoDésirée imaging editing software which allows users to enhance and modify images on demand. Another cool feature is the ability to adjust individual color preferences for all prints. The 640PS produces true photo-lab quality prints in only 75 seconds.
