Sony sets up summer photo printer line-up

Dye-sublimation

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sony will ship its latest photo printers into the US and Europe this summer, the company said this week, touting the two new machines' ability to churn out "lab quality prints that last", in part thanks to the special laminate coating the printers apply.

Two new models were unveiled: the DPP-FP35 and DPP-FP55. Both use four-colour dye-sublimation printing technology to render up to 16.7m hues at a resolution of 300 x 300dpi on 4 x 6in paper. Both ship with a 20-sheet paper feeder, but the FP55 also sports a 2in, colour image preview LCD.

The two machines contain USB connectors for connection to computers, phones and cameras - the latter can connect and print directly using PictBridge. The FP55 also has a built-in MemoryStick Duo and SD card reader, and provides a 63s per page print time, along with pre-programmed image effects and print styles, including calendars, postcards and photo albums.

The compact printers measure 17.5 x 13.7 x 6cm. The FP55 ships in July, while the FP35 will come to market in August. ®
