CHROMIRA

The Chromira Digital Printer produces a continuous tone photographic print up to 30" wide by any length. We offer Fuji Crystal Archive Paper in Matte & Glossy, Fuji Professional Lustre, and Kodak Super Endura Metallic Paper.

The Chromira exposes photographic paper in 24 bit color using Light Emitting Diodes (LED's). With the use of ZBE's proprietary Resolution Enhancement Technology each pixel is sharpened to a visual resolution of 425 pixels per inch (ppi). It uses red, green and blue LED's, which travel side-to-side directly over the photographic printing material. This assures that each dot is uniform, with no elliptical distortion near the edges, as has been experienced with previous laser-based printers.

The quality of our Chromira is unsurpassed. It’s the perfect digital option for the discriminating photographer and artist. You provide a digital file, or we’ll create one from your film or artwork, assessing your needs to provide you top quality scans. Film is scanned on our Howtek HiResolve 8000 Drum Scanner. Prints and flat art are scanned with our Epson Flatbed Scanner or our Large Format Digital Copy Camera.
